I get really hot and sweats but it doesn't do it every time, its weird. I am guessing it is because its the first thing to hit my stomach in the morning and I use vanilla Creamer.

Oh yeah, I dump. Most definitely. I've had real doozies before. I have not-so-fond memories of wanting to die on bathroom floors, simultaneously barfing and explosive pooping, being so weak that I had to be carried in and out of the showers, heart pounding so fast and hard I swear the each beat physically shakes my body.

It doesn't happen all the time, and I don't get it as often (nor as severe) as I did before despite me actually consuming more sugar now than then.

You would think I would stay away from sugar, knowing how I could react to it. 🙄

Gosh I honestly could NOT remember how to find the thread yesterday!!! TY yall for posting and bringing it back to trending topics!!

Yesterday was like the third day of hungry hungry heifer. So I threw more Protein at the hunger and tried to keep "containment". I was really starting to worry last night about it, if this was a new phase or if my carbs were giving me bg issues and insulin probs.

But I think I was just in a protein deficit. I've read a recent study on obesity theory that talks about hunger increases when protein is kept too low over a long period of time? And that once you eat and eat and eat until your protein "reserves" (kinda sorta) are refilled, your hunger hormones will be psycho killers.

Interestingly, after eating so much protein over the past 3 days, I woke up prepared to fight the urge to eat and low and behold...I wasn't hungry until around 12:30pm. I had my same lattes to get my extra protein in, but didn't feel inclined to eat breakfast. I had a huge lunch and now feel totally satisfied with an abscence of food cues or cravings. So maybe there is something to that theory? It will be interesting to see how the rest of the day shakes out from here.

Planning a salad with shrimp tonight @ms.sss (oh yes, I'm talking about you Missy! The salad queen!)

@Tracyringo wooohooooo! And BAM! Just like that baybbbbbby! You are back in your window! It feels ridiculously good, doesn't it? :D Congrats!! Your menus have looked so yummy and gorgeous!

@ms.sss I seriously heart you! Love your menus. Love that you are fearless about trying different things and love that you're able to eat late and not gain! I've been having some nightly snacking going down...it's mostly corralled, but it gives me hope that I can have my cake Peanut Butter and cheese and eat it too! ;) hehe.

Ok, so here goes:

Thursday 11.07 - Maintenance : 5'4" / 57y F/ 19.5mo PO RNY / 130.6 lbs

Daily Totals: 1006 cals; 97g protein; 53g fat; 36g carbs; 9g fiber; 27g net carbs (Oh and I didn't walk yesterday. I was so exhausted and just felt flat and empty without reserves. So I took a day off. But this morning I woke up, peppy, full of energy, jazzed for the day and ran = rawlked for 55 minutes straight.)

My goodness that's alot of food for 1000-ish cals. Have you considered doing a bariatric meal prep side business? You could probably make a killing.

Daily Totals: 1195 cals; 73g protein; 51g fat; 53g carbs; 10g fiber; 41g net carbs

My hunger stayed in check yesterday. Yay! Dinner was date night and extended, so we started with sharing Italian sausage in marinara and having a glass of wine. Then later we had dinner and a second glass of wine. I'm likely overestimating dinner--I found a hair in it about 1/3 of the way in and that was it for me. But I later got hungry, so went for my flavah fave...

Today is a swamped day! Y'all have a good one!! @ms.sss Ha! We're posting at the same time! Will bbiaf after I've read your posts!!! :D

...lots of food and drink with the gal pals last night (while for me I think I was doing a serious job of packing it in, my food intake was still less than what my friends were eating). I am running on about 4 hours of sleep at the moment as despite coming home late, I woke up at 7am. I am way toooo tired and run down to go for a run right now, so I'm sitting on the couch in front of tv with my laptop instead. I'm likely going to stay in this postion for a while...LOL. Unless I fall asleep *crosses fingers*

Spoiler Alert: I dumped last night.

9:30am - coffee with Stevia

2:00pm - salad greens w/ vinaigrette + 3.5 oz grilled chicken + apples

4:00pm - (the leftovers of my 2pm lunch) + 1 oz peanuts + 2oz chicharron

8:00pm - Wedge Salad (iceberg lettuce + bacon + Tomato + blue cheese crumble + blue cheese dressing) + grilled vegetables + cauliflower mash + 3 oz steak + 4-5 bites of oreo ice cream cake.

10pm to 2am - Skinny frozen margarita + 1 amaretto shot + 4 tequila shots + 1 vodka soda + 1/2 apple tart w/ vanilla ice cream.

Totals: 3469 cals - 148g Protein - 300g NET carbs - 166g fat

I was channeling you :) But, then I forgot to snap a pic. But OMG...the hair. *sic* 😬🤢🤮 Normally, I'd just put that restaurant on my list and never return. But, it's our favorite neighborhood place and we love the patrons and everyone who works there an owns the place. The owner felt so bad. I didn't want him to take it off my bill, but he comp'd the entire meal. I felt awful for him.

      1. lvidacovich

        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.

      3. FluffyChix

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

    • *Meaghan*

      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)
