I feel quiet today. I have entered a new zone. I am 215. Surgery was at 246 and I want to lose 100 pounds. Welll, I would like more but for the purposes of calculating math as we go, I have rounded off to 100. This means that at 221, I lost 1/4 of my … Continue reading 215
Today I am 217. I am breathing easier and recovering from the very, very long stall. I am eating the recommended 45 grams of protein and tons of steamed, nothing processed veggies and 1 fruit. I drink water, decaf and chocolate soymilk warmed up before bed. It's working and the sludgy feeling has gone away. … Continue reading 217
I WEIGH 218!!!! Yes!.. to 40 grams of protein....LOTS of veggies not a few after too much protein. Celebrating nearly vegan me. I actually feel hope of seeing 215 soon.... freaking fantastic! ...sighing with happiness for a solution that works.
Pot Luck at work from a group of people who REALLY know how to cook.....they are my downfall and I have yet to learn how to survive. Pray, pray hard.
So this is what I learned over the last few days. You can definately eat around a sleeve. A few bites here and there without a daily plan will find you eating just like you did before, just eat constantly and small bites and you can def fit in thousands of calories.( I only picked … Continue reading Lessons
One of my rare yummy treats is steak. I never ate much meat but when I did it was steak. It's a downfall really, a thing that prevents me from declaring my full fledge vegan lifestyle. But one nice thing has happened, shopping they had my lovely t-bone steak on cheap-eat-it-quick-before-you-die price and I failed … Continue reading Steak
This morning I finally broke the 220. I weighed 219 after 24 hours of eating 45 grams of protein instead of the bariatric team wanting me to eat twice the normal amount. Today's menu, 2 egg white omelets stuffed with mushrooms. Later, will be steamed potatoes, cabbage, squash and broccoli. ...back to my home planet... … Continue reading Yes!
It's been 2 days since I ahve decided to go AVERAGE protein post Gastric Sleeve. I say that since women require 46 grams of protein and they have me eating 60-80. As soon as went to mushy foods and 60-80 grams of meat sourced protein, weight loss stalled. So I am returning to my previous … Continue reading Low Protein and Me
I may have found a reason I am not losing the way I had hoped. My Endo thinks that being vegetarian (and many years vegan) before surgery, and now my post op diet is meat sourced protein, may not be making my body very happy. So my diet is now officially going back to its home … Continue reading Vegetarians/Vegans and Me
Still 220. Its a creepy phenomenon. As I did terrible on Atkins, labs skyrocketed, I packed on weight, I am now theorizing that 80 gams of protein is too much for me. And I struggle to keep calories low. So I am adding more muscle workout to avoid muscle wasting and eating the normal amount … Continue reading Another day, another 220.
