A really good snack would be 1/2 cup sugar free Greek yogurt with some berries (frozen are usually cheaper-make sure they don't have added sugar). Look up low glycemic fruit and make your choices from fruit lower GI choices.

Thank you I will look into it. I've been having a greek yogurt with strawberry mashed on top for a sweet snack. Will see how I can improve this snack option x

Kirsten I suspect you just hit a stall at the wrong time! You've already lost 25lbs so if they need evidence that you can stick to a diet there it is! At 800 calories a day you will definitely start losing again, I really hope you see a good loss this week, sounds like you're doing amazingly.

That's a very good point, I never thought about a stall! It could well be that indeed. I will see my loss next week and if it isn't anything brilliant I will inform my bariatric team that I successfully did the 2 week period but didn't have a big loss. I suspect the actual pre-surgery one will be more liquids than solid meals, so that might have more of a success.

I have downloaded a UK-based calorie counter to make my life a bit easier so I can track things better too. Fingers crossed! Honestly thank you so much, I find it hard to lose weight because of my PCOS so I should give myself more credit than I do.

Congrats on your 36 pounds! I hope you hit that target weight! X

Sorry, all!

I read my calorie counter wrong last night and gave you all the wrong numbers!
Yesterday's total was 44.1g carbs, 19.7 Protein, and 351 calories!

Thanks x

I recommend the Baritastic app. It tracks your Protein, carbs, fats, calories, Water, exercise, etc. and provides you with charts to see your progress as well as a daily log for writing your thoughts and activities. It's much easier than looking up each food item in a calorie counter. It will measure grams as well as ounces, so its compatible for you.

Thanks for the recommendation. My app does exactly the same but focuses on UK brands and typical portions etc. Thanks x

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.
