My heat tolerance went way down after surgery too. I'm a wimp now. And I used to cook with habanero, thai chilies, jalapenos, serranos, wasabi, horseradish, Frank's etc.

My heat tolerance sky rocketed for 3 months at about 6 month mark post op and I craved spicy food. It took a Sudden nosedive and I have a low tolerance now. It is so strange.

Nice! With your age and starting weight, I'm gonna guess then that you will be one of the lucky few who will not be cursed with loose skin after the weight loss! Take pics!!!

You know, now that I think of it, I also went through a phase where I was craving spicy food...I remember it was during a road trip in April, so I would've been about 6 months post op too! Didn't last long though, maybe just a couple weeks...

Can you do it on your desktop? I think it's easiest to do it that way. Then you can see that there are also so many areas where you can post and get better response.

This is the thread for people who have lost all their weight and are maintaining. We are all usually pretty far out from where newbies and sophomores are. So you will get better support and more response from your peers in other areas!!

Yesterday, Wednesday, Dec. 11
Maintenance : 5'2" / 1yr PO Sleeve / 115.7 lbs
----------------------------------------
...went for a run for the first time in almost 2 weeks this morning! I was dreading it because I was feeling lazy and I was afraid that I would be all tired and winded and out of shape. Fear unsubstantiated! It was like I never stopped. I forgot how good it feels after a run. I can already feel that I am going to be hungry today though...
----------------------------------------
9:30am - coffee w/ stevia
12:00pm - salad w/ vinaigrette + carrots + 1/4 cup tbsp imitation crab salad + 3oz grilled chicken + 2oz roasted brussel sprouts w/ bacon
3:00pm - salad w/ vinaigrette + 1oz gala apple + 1/4 cup imitation crab salad + 2.5oz grilled chicken
4:30pm - 1/2 cup cottage cheese + 1/2 oz pumpkin seeds + 1 oz blueberries + 1/8 cup papaya + 3oz chicharron
7:00pm - salad w/ vinaigrette + 1oz gala apple + 1/4 cup lasagna sans noodles + 1 fl oz pumpkin seeds + 1 oz brie + 1oz grilled chicken
8:00pm - 1 cup milk + 3/4 cup mango-pineapple sorbetto
9:30pm - 1 oz beef Jerky + 1/2 cup cottage cheese + 2 oz blueberries + 1/2 cup papaya + 3 tbsp dried cranberries
----------------------------------------
Totals: 1905 cals - 154g Protein - 123g NET carbs - 87g fat
The epiphany of an obvious knowledge also occurred to me this week! Exercise makes me ridiculously HUNGRY!!!! Ding ding ding! How this knowledge eluded me depicts how one track minded wls has made me!

This knowledge also truly gives credence to Dr. Vuong's video of waiting 6 months after surgery to start exercising! I was so rejecting of the idea that I didn't even contemplate the idea behind it.
I'm spinning 5 to 6 times a week plus personal training and I get hungry and eat more and stalled. Experimented with no exercise, less hungry and lost weight this past few days!!

Didn't mean to hijack the thread but it truly takes someone else's experience to validate what I need to tweak! Thanks [emoji176][emoji175][emoji176][emoji175]

So you can’t ask questions if your newbie or sophomore? Jeez. If your more experienced you should be able to help others & not tell them to go elsewhere. When I get to maintenance I would welcome newer peers to guide & mentor them. I would be excited to help them on the journey I’ve already experienced. That’s just me. Thanks though for answer re my question on stats.

Of course you can. I'm trying to help direct you since you're new here and may not have a full gist of the site and all the forums. I want you to have THE MOST answers to your questions! (And your questions are not pursuant to Maintenance Menus, they're kinda all over the place.)

But you are in a particular thread that is devoted to MENUS FOR MAINTENANCE. And despite our thread being active, it's only active with a handful of people. And the Bariatric Pal sight has 1000s of posters on the main forums where you can ask your questions or respond and engage in different topics. I was trying to point you to areas where you can freely ask all sorts of questions and get way more information that we might be able to give.

Yes, you can ask questions.

We understand. It takes time to learn this site. No one is intending to be disrespectful or exclude newbies/sophomores. The website assistance thread may help answer your question in detail. (link below)

I hope people understand the title of the thread. I would hate for someone in weight loss mode to eat a maintenance menu and expect to lose weight.

I guess I'm thinking "Daily Menus for Maintenance" is very self-explanatory?

6 months of no exercising? That is strange advice.

Outside of walking from Day 1, I started a regular exercise routine around month 2. Back then, this consisted of walking/jogging for a hour every day plus some class or other 2x a week plus a couple half-hearted attempts at lifting, LOL.

I got to goal a little under 7 months (I lost 110lbs in those 7 months + 2 week pre-op diet). If I waited 6 months to start exercising, I'm not sure I would have reached goal that quickly.

...but everyone is different and gets different results from the same behaviors. For instance, I never understood the eat-more-calories-to-lose-more-weight strategy that is often employed on members on in this forum...but only because I saw different results in my own experience.

You gotta do what works for you, right? ❤️

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
