anyone experiencing morning sickness? I have problems with Breakfast. I do not throw up but I really do not want to eat and when I eat I feel nausea. This just happens in mornings. Anyone else?

So last week's weigh-in left me in a less than stellar mood as it showed a significant slow down (.8 lbs) despite me exceeding my exercise goals. When it happened, I cut myself back from 4 prepared meals a week to 3 again and resolved to keep exceeding my exercise goals.

Well, that seemed to have worked out because I'm down 5.6 lbs this week. That was a nice start to the morning!

I give you a lot of credit I could not only eat 3 times a week. The liquid diet killed me it really screwed with my head. I really don’t know how you do it but congratulations on the loss! Way to go 😀

Oh trust me...I absolutely HATE it. If my surgeon had his way, I'd be doing only liquids and Protein Bars until I hit my goal. I've allowed myself a VERY gradual increase in meals per week. When he said it was okay for me to do meals, I started with 2 a week. Did that for 2 weeks and still maintained good weight loss. So I went to 3 meals a week for 2 weeks. Again, maintained solid weight loss. I then went to 4 meals a week and planned to do that for 2 weeks. Except after 1 week, my weight loss went from around around 3 pounds down to .8. So I stopped and went back to 3 meals to see how it went.

As much as I hate it, I can't argue with the results. So I'll stick it out at 3 meals for another 2-3 weeks and then see about increasing again.

I keep myself going by constantly reminding myself that this is only temporary and that I am making huge improvements. Maintenance mode WILL happen.

So questions everyone from July surgery 2020 what kind of exercises are everyone doing? I have very bad hips and have cortisone injections in both and can’t do things that would have any kind of impact. I walk on my Gazelle every morning but my loss is very slow oh and my surgeon doesn’t want me doing an workouts or lifting nor then 10lb because I had a very bad hiatal hernia repair with mesh had to be used. So does anyone have some suggestions. I have espresso with my Protein Shake every morning for Breakfast and then 3oz lunch n 3 oz dinner and some time a snack in between. But I feel I may need to move more even though it is hard or painful.

But I feel I may need to move more even though it is hard or painful.

I started out walking and gradually increased my speed and distance. Then I started doing Leslie Sansone walk at home videos on YouTube. I was also needing low impact due to ankle and knee pain/issues. Now I I’m doing high intensity interval training (HIIT) on an elliptical at the gym for 30-60 minutes 4 times per week (still low impact). I also do about 30 minutes of strength training 2-3 times per week at the gym. I still do the Leslie Sansone videos (30 ish minutes) once or twice per week. It is my goal to also incorporate more outdoor activities as I go along, like hiking, cross country and downhill skiing, etc. Last week I went for an almost 5 mile hike. I still am avoiding high impact activities, but have incorporated some moderate impact activity. One of my knees is still causing me issues, but everything else feels so much better! Eventually I will have to address the problem knee, but right now I am keeping my head in the sand on that one 🤦‍♀️

I was eating about 600 kcal the first two months, but have recently been increasing to 700-800 due to activity levels and recent labs. I typically get 70 G Protein per day.

Walking is a great low impact, starter exercise. The walk at home videos are great to keep low impact, while getting a good cardio workout. If you have the means, getting a fitness tracker like Apple Watch or FitBit can help. I bought an Apple Watch while I was home recovering from surgery. It has really helped motivate me as I can see my improvements in fitness with heart rate and activity level every day. I hope some of those ideas help. Good luck to you!

I am walking, which is what I plan to be my main aerobic activity. I'm adding some strength training too with resistance bands. I started out so heavy fur my height (393 at 5'3") that I couldn't walk much at all but now I can do a half hour at a pace that gets my heart rate up. I am working up to an hour. I will probably add other types of exercise in the future but for now it's walking, which I enjoy.

Have you tried peddling? There are small Floor devices that allow you to pedal while sitting . I use 1 and 2lb weights to workout my arms. Hang in there!

I have the sit n spin one but for some reason my when I peddle the up down movement is very painful in my right hip. It kinda doesn’t go up n down normally it try’s to go side ways a bit. I know my hip doctor had me get that over a year ago but I can’t take the pain after like 3 min even with Percocet. Which I don’t want to use. But I have the Tony little Gazelle and I love that but because of the hip I can’t make it go very fast . I do 25 in morning but it only adds up to about a mile n a half but I never get out of breath or sweat. It’s always something right lol

I hyped myself up so much yesterday and I still have to wait 4 more days. Covid test tomorrow, not looking forward to it again. It's not like I go anywhere as an introvert, my life is self quarantine lol

Just wanted to say congrats on your weight loss so far
