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.
I went out Saturday to celebrate with friends...my first restaurant after surgery, I bought snacks, drinks, and came home with leftovers. I grazed all Sunday on those leftovers, polished off the wine, are the reduced T-bone steak I bought at the grocery store on the way home ( in 3 meals, it wouldnt fit otherwise)..... … Continue reading The Same Pound
All my life, I have been fat. I have soared up and down the numbers. I have spent my life living on this plateau or that one. But the plateaus, I must say, were more of a range. I would spent a chunk of time weighting 243-246 or 197-203, and so forth. It's as if you … Continue reading The Intriguing Thing about Stalls.
Its the next day and still same pound....but.... I awake to feeling like I had lost about 5 pounds. Ever do that? You wake up, sit on the side of the bed and already feel with absolutely certainty that you must have lost at least 5 pounds? I did that this morning. I did it … Continue reading No Calendars
I am not losing. The bulk of what I lost was in the first 2 week on liquids. I did the 3 week stall, lost a few more and then have remained on a stall since. I am doing everything analy (is that a word?) right. So here is my theory. My body thinks its … Continue reading Protein
I weigh the same.....still....after how many weeks?.....3?.....I did the "eat more" thing, I did the "eat food you dont normall eat" thing....I won't bore you with the list of things....every morning...I am the same pound. I may be a character in the new Dr. Suess book on Gastric Sleeve.....I weigh, I may, the very same … Continue reading The Evil Scale
I miss my nightly glass of wine....or I thought so. I kind of do. I decided that I don't really want the wine as much as I miss the lovely glass goblet that contained it. My lovely long stemmed goblet now contains water. And I and my hand are just as happy. Finding solutions to the … Continue reading The real truth.
I have been on the very same pound again for 10 days. I have behaved. I have counted calories. I have done yoga and ballet workouts. The pound remains the very same. So yeaterday I lost it. I was an ass. I ate all day long, multiple caramel yogurts, pasta, meats, and went to bed, … Continue reading Calories and Sitting on a Post
