Saturday November 16, 57 F 20mo PO RNY, Maintenance 131.4lbs

It was Saturday Shenanigans day and date day. We did our walking and worked in storage for a few hours moving boxes. That's how I justified Saturday afternoon in our little neighborhood place watching football and having a tequila and beer. Back down to the lower end of my maintenance window which feels better. We have no shenanigans planned for today other than I had a big brunch and probably won't eat until dinner. Think dinner will be foil wrapped basa filets.

B-SF Peppermint Mocha Latte + SF pumpkin Pie BC Latte (4oz PP)

Brunch-Bacon Egg cheese Chaffle + Grape Tomatoes

AS-Nekkid Wings + Side salad w/blue cheese dressing no croutons + baby carrots & celery with ranch + 1 tequila + Miller Lite with lime

BS-1/2 Low Carb Wrap with BH Pepperoni, shredded cabbage, purple onion, WF Asian + Twin Peaks Protein Puffs + 1 whiskey + Decaf coffee

Daily Totals: 1250cals; 75g protein; 56g fat; 45g carbs; 13g fiber; 32g net carbs

Yesterday, Sun, Nov. 17
Maintenance : 5'2" / 1yr PO Sleeve / 114.9 lbs

...went out for dinner (and a later coffee, drinks & dessert) with some friends of ours tonight/last night. I now have a new Salad Dressing I love and its a creamy one! I ordered a “Keto Cobb Salad” and it came with “Keto Green Goddess” dressing. It was #yum. With the exception of blue cheese, I normally don't like creamy salad dressings. But this one was great...I think because it was more sour-creamy and lighter tasting than what I think creamy dressings are like. I googled the recipe and will totally make a batch soon #doubleYum

9:00am - earl grey tea w/ stevia

1:30pm - salad greens w/ vinaigrette + 2.5 oz apple + .75 oz red onion + 1/2 an avocado + 3 oz grilled chicken

7:00-9:00pm - 2/3 of a Keto Cobb Salad (romaine + 3 cherry tomatoes + 1 slice bacon + 1 tbsp blue cheese crumble + cucumber + 1 egg + 1/2 an avocado + 3 oz grilled chicken + 2 tbsp Keto Green Goddess Dressing) + Charcuterie Stuff (3 oz brie + 3 slices salami + 1 slice prosciutto + 3 tbsp fig jam + 1 tbsp honey mustard + 3 gherkins + 1/2 glass red wine

10:00pm to 1:00am - 1.5 glasses red wine + 1 skinny mojito + 2 tequila + 1/4 slice apple crumble pie + 2 americanos w/ stevia

Totals: 2137 cals - 66g Protein - 99g NET carbs - 104g fat

Maintenance: 5'4", 57y, F, 20mo PO RNY, 131.8lbs

Mr. F. felt bad yesterday so he got to choose dinner, which was of course, steak. LOL. So my planned foil fish will get eaten tonight for dins. After a weekend of heavy heavy eatin', I'm ready to do this week with Mr. F. We're gonna do my old flame week of ADF with calorie restriction to 500cals EOD. It really kills inflammation and I've been having killer hip and back pain lately. So I'm hoping it will help with that and will also help Mr. F. drop a few pounds that have crept back on his frame. I'm actually looking forward to today and to not eating until 3pm (also doing TRE 18:6 with the ADF). Tomorrow will be a regular weekly M-Th day for me and closer to the 850calorie range.

Although we didn't have shananigans yesterday, I managed to pack away the food and the cals/macros! I've been consistently over-eating Protein lately, and think that may be one of the sources of inflammation. So we'll see!

B1-Avocado Chaffle with Poached Egg & 2% Cheddar + Bacon

L-Green Soup with Veggies & Shrimp + Poached Egg Whites (1/2 recip)

AS-Baby Carrots & Cucumber

D-Grilled Steak + Loaded Garlic Broccoli + Avocado Slices

BS-Almonds + Lindt Dark chocolate

Totals: 1143 Calories; 82g protein; 69g fat; 52g carbs; 19g Fiber; 33g net carbs

Has Mr. F lost alot of weight doing ADF previously? (It's pretty awesome he does this with you...my Mr. eats a crapton and would never survive (although he is super fit so I guess he needs said crapton).) Does he do TRE with you as well?

I see your Protein at 80-igh grams (which I thought is a relatively normal-ish level for wls peeps?)...what is your "normal level"?

Mr. F has lost about 70lbs in a combo between lchf (low carb healthy fat) and IF/OMAD. He does TRE by virtue of only eating OMAD M-F. His T2 has improved a lot. But lately we've had lots of business/social events and he's regained about 10lbs so it's time to get back on the WLWagon. :)

I try to stay between 56-70 g of Protein loosely. It will fluctuate daily. I like to average around 60-65g cuz I feel like that's the sweet spot for me. My albumin and pre-albumin levels look really good at that range. When I'm higher 75-90g, I notice that my blood sugars are higher, I'm snackier, I feel like my insulin gets elevated again and the pain starts (also lymphedema gets worse). It's taken a while to figure this out. But it's very real. Also, I start getting more mucus/asthma symptoms. So weird.

It is normal. It's also high end normal. At my due weight in kg (120/2.2lbs-kg) X 0.8 to 1.2g/kg, I only really need about 44g of protein - 65g of protein per day. (Remember, I'm not super active...)

Today, Mon, Nov. 18
Maintenance : 5'2" / 1yr PO Sleeve / 114.5 lbs

...found my super-filler-food: JERK PORK. Holy cow, it took me over an hour to finish just 3.5 oz of it alone, and at the time of this writing it has been over 3.5 hours since I ate it and I am still pretty filled. I am DONE eating for today..I can tell if I eat anything else I'm going to hurl. I'm ending today with waaaaay too few cals though. There are still lots of jerk pork leftovers in the fridge, I'm probably going to have to stick to eating 1 oz portions at time.

10:30am - earl grey tea w/ stevia + coffee w/ stevia

1:30pm - salad greens w/ vinaigrette + 1.5 oz apple + 1/2 an avocado + 1 cherry Tomato + 1/2 tbsp bacon crumble + 4 oz grilled chicken + 1 tsp crunchy chili oil

4:00pm - 3.5 oz jerk pork

Totals: 581 cals - 52g Protein - 23g NET carbs - 29g fat

Well my weight bounced up today. I'm sure it's leftover from the weekend partying. But that's ok. I did my ADF DD (down day) successfully yesterday. Made it to 3pm before I had a few pepperoni slices as I headed out the door to get a load of boxes moved from 1 storage to the other...sigh. YES. The storage move continues. Gah. Hatin it. Ready to be done!

I just want to reiterate this isn't a normal day of food for me in maintenance. Yesterday was a IF day where I actively wanted to keep my cals <500 and Protein <20g ideally (for autophagy), but I ended up over. OH well. :)

It was takeout...I've tried making jerk pork before (both the charred kind and the saucy kind) and just haven't had much success with it...nowhere close to the authentic stuff. I suspect the super-filling aspect of last night's takeout had to do with the relative dryness of the outer bark (though the inside was super-melt-in-mouth moist #sooooYum).

P.S. I was looking forward to having some leftovers for a meal later today, but it looks like SOMEONE ate it all!!! Grr.

Oh I hate it when that happens! :D Gosh the pork sounds divine! I love it when it has that barky outer dry with moist creamy center!!! Yum!

Hey, playin around with my new toy (portion mate rings from BP store) = seriously heart these things. :)

image.png.23baf2cca432ac78dff851cb23dc2195.png

I made a salad with them today. Plopped them on a bread plate and weighed salad into it. I thought I had the 1/2c ring but accidentally used the 3/4cup ring. I firmly packed the romaine into it and then just cut the other veggies into it, so all total the salad measures about 1 1/2 cups in volume which is about what I eat for a salad serving, give or take. And here's what fit into:

chopped-salad-1_5-cups_5141.thumb.JPG.d03fd15445b99a5d0303e96de77d92bf.JPG

Basic Chopped Salad: (1 1/2cups volume=2oz by weight)

3/4c Romaine (28g)

3/4c Mixed Veggies (40g cucumber, 14g cabbage shredded, 14g purple onion)

Totals: 19 calories; 0g protein; 0g fat; 4g carbs; 1g fiber; 3g net carbs.

image.png.88250c1efd21aa25d27e8709b24215e3.png

I saved this in MFP as a meal for: chopped salad, basic (1s=1 1/2c vol) 3/4c romaine + 3/4c veg)(rom, cabb, po, cuc).

Here's the meal with 1/2c volume tuna salad (112g). I accidentally made it too soupy, so more sliderish, but I will mix it up with the salad like a dressing. :) Will be interesting to see how much I eat. It's another magical meal with the cals.

Meal Totals: 114 calories; 14g protein; 3g fat; 8g carbs; 1g fiber; 7g net carbs. :)

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!
