Maintenance : 5'2" / F / 1yr PO / 112.5 lbs

...Dim Sum with the fam for lunch and then dinner/drinks with Mr. & friends in the evening. Now, I said was going to cut back on wine (I haven't had a drop since I said I wouldn't!), BUT I convinced myself that other liquor was fine last night. It was a Halloween party and a good time was being had, so I was pretty convincing to myself. P.S. I dressed up as a slutty cat - no photographic evidence though, LOLOLOLOL

12:30pm - (DIM SUM!) fried turnips + black bean spare ribs w/ sweet potato + grilled octopus + hazelnut cake dessert

5:30pm - 3/4 of costco Garlic chicken Leg + 1 tbsp Tzatziki

7:00pm - (DIM SUM LEFTOVERS!) black bean spare ribs w/ sweet potato + fried turnips + tofu pudding w/ simple Syrup + 45g chicharron + 5 Avocado chips

9:30pm - 2:00am - 1/4 of a roasted beet & poached pear salad w/ salmon + 1/4 warm apple tart w/ vanilla ice cream + Lychee Martini + 1 Tequila shot + 3 gin and tonics.

Totals: 2216 cals - 100g Protein - 230g NET carbs - 82g fat

I am in awe of what you can eat as far as calories. Do you exercise a lot? or were you born with a great metabolism?

I'm not @ms.sss, but I maintain at around the same calories. I do practically no exercise (unless walking to my dry cleaners counts!). I doubt anyone who went through WLS believes they were born with a great metabolism.

There aren't a lot of long term maintainers that post on BP. So who knows what is "normal"? Are @ms.ss and I the outliers, or are those that have to maintain on far less the outliers? Or are we representing both side of the curve and the average is somewhere in the middle?

Maintenance : 5'2" / F / 1yr PO / 112.5 lbs

...Am done eating for the day so I figure I'd post this now as I will be out and about tomorrow morning. food choices today were not the greatest, I'll admit. Went to the movies with BFF and our Kids in the afternoon, and basically just ate concession stand stuff (read: junk) for "lunch". Made me feel pretty icky until dinnertime.

12:00pm - Coffee w/ stevia

2:00pm - 1/3 bag of popcorn w/ butter + AN ENTIRE BAG of peanut M&M's (I'm sorry, stomach :( )

7:00pm - salad greens + olive oil + roasted beets + 2.5 oz grilled salmon + 2.5 oz costco garlic chicken leg

Totals: 1468 cals - 53g Protein - 118g NET carbs - 82g fat

Lol, the octopus and spare ribs are some of the "less challenging" examples of typical Dim Sum fare. I am actually one of the least "adventurous" eaters in my circle of family and friends. There are other classic Dim Sum choices like chicken feet, curried tripe, etc. that my meal companions would order for the table, and I'm all like, no thanks.

Maintenance : 5'2" / F / 1yr PO / 113.0 lbs

...did a deep dive on my food intake logs for the past couple weeks and realized that on the days that I reach close to 2000 cals, its because I had some sort junk or another. Thinking I need to nip that in the bud and increase calories with "healthier food". Will attempt to see what I can do about that today. But here is yesterday's menu:

9:00am - coffee w/ stevia

11:00am - salad greens + olive oil + 1.5oz costco garlic chicken leg w/ tzatziki + 2oz montreal smoked meat + Parmesan cheese + peanuts + pumpkin seeds

2:30pm - 2 oz chicharron + turkey Jerky + chicken broth

5:00pm - salad greens + olive oil + roasted beets + 2oz montreal smoked meat + Parmesan cheese + avocado + cottage cheese + blueberries

7:45pm - starbucks americano misto with soy

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
