Hello April Sleevers,

We are getting ready to close out another month. How's everyone doing?

Any great non-scale victories? This weekend, I might try on a few of my older clothes that I had tucked away and do some shopping in my own closet again this weekend. Some clothes that I wore to work recently were looking a bit frumpy. Still trying not to buy clothes. So, will dig around in the closet again this weekend to find some smaller sizes. 😃

Walking was better this week. Water intake got better recently, but then dipped down the past couple days again so increasing my Water intake is a goal this weekend.

How's everyone doing?

Have a great weekend everyone!

Hi there,

It sounds like you are doing pretty good and water is very key to success, I agree. I know what you mean about frumpy clothes. I had a lot of choices but most look dated for today. I will buy new only for a special event and it seems that I don't mind showing a little more skin, too, lol.

I just have to tell everyone about my latest breakthrough. I FINALLY entered ONEDERLAND!!!! I'm now 198.1 I am so happy this stall is over after 26 days! I hovered around 200-202 for the longest time. So don't give up peeps! Getting into the soft foods phase can be challenging but be patient. I can honestly report that upping my intake of water helped a lot and going back to Reformer Pilates classes was a tremendous release of stressing about the stall and challenged my muscles more than ever. Sweating like a pig to do the exercises but having fun. I highly recommend Pilates. it seems to help with the saggy skin issue as well.

I eat 4-5 small meals a day surprisingly, but I know my present problems are my eyes being too big for my stomach and I waste a lot of food. I aim to get that under control. I have even thought about trying a vegetarian prepared food service. I rarely drink Protein Shakes anymore. I have a lot of powder left over. Oh well, as long as my days are filled with water, Protein, fruit, veggies and some dairy, I will continue to keep doing what I'm doing.

Take care everyone

Trish

Hello everyone,

I'm writing to ask for your help. I still have not found a daily Multivitamin that works for me. My program recommended that we use chewable for the first 2 months, starting after 2 weeks. So, at Week 3 I started the Bariatric Fusion chewable. My tummy did not like the first kind I had. So, I ordered a different flavor. Stomach was ok with second flavor, but I hated the chalky taste. I talked with my program about it at my 2 month follow up. I could move to capsules. So, I ordered capsules from Bariatric fusion. I was already using a supplemental Vitamin from them and just adding it to my Protein Shake. That was working from the 1 month mark. So, I got the multivitamin in a capsule, added it to a Protein shake, oh no. Totally horrible. The multivitamin stinks like crazy and is so nasty. Odd, because the supplement is fine.

So, before I spend even more money on multivitamin option #4, I'm writing to ask what is working for you all. What are you using that is not upsetting to your tummy and goes down easy. My program does not want me swallowing any large pills until month 4 so that's part of this adventure also. I can't just buy a multivitamin that comes in big pill form and they say it must be bariatric specific, not just a regular multivitamin. I'm considering BariMelts next. Just tired of wasting money. Plus, scared of the impact of not consistently taking Vitamins so far. Bloodwork is not until Month 4 check up. I feel fine. Just want to be doing the right things during this journey.

Thanks!

Hello @blueslily, I started out with the bariatric specific chewable multivitamin from bariatricpal. They was so nasty and had me nauseous. So I was relieved when I was told I could take the tablet form. The bariatric specific multivitamin tablet is kind of big. But i rather take those then them chewables. You can always crushed the tablet and put into applesauce. However, I still do take the calcium citrate chewables and sometimes the tablet. They are really big but can be crushed as well.

I take the Bariatric Advantage chewable and they are pretty good. They have samples. I got mine from my nutritionist but if you’s did not have them I imagine the company would send you some?? I take their chewable multi and calcium citrate chews.

Anyone have any NSV to share? I’m in a large shirt now(went from 2x) and my waist size is 35 inches which means I officially have a healthy non obese waist size according to the cdc. I’m down exactly 50lbs! So proud of myself and my journey so far.

hows the gym going for everyone? I’m hitting it 5x a week. Also I’m loving my yoga routine.

im starting to be able to eat more than usual. Meal prepping is going really well for me. But chicken is the only meat I can do as fish just makes me cringe, turkey is to heavy and sits in my tummy like a rock, pork is ok but I don’t like it so much.

Thanks for the info. I tried the crushed option and hmm, nasty also. Will look into pills I can just cut in half and swallow though since I'm advised against swallowing big pills right now.

How are you doing?

Congrats, congrats! Is seafood like shrimp ok for your stomach?

Can you eat ground turkey or turkey with a sauce that makes it moist?

This weekend I'm going to check to see what size I really am now, lol. Have no clue. Just know my clothes are too big and I find ways to make them look smaller. I was going to go through some older, smaller clothes last weekend, but got lazy. Hahaha. Will try this weekend since it's a long holiday weekend.
