  1. Hi guys, 8 weeks 3 days pregnant! Kind of a surprise, since we had just started trying! I'm worried about gaining weight... being 8 weeks I've already gained 3 or 4 pounds. It's not even like I'm going crazy! I wrote everything down, I have 1500-1800 cals a day. What are you guys doing to keep your weight in check?
  2. Some of it depends on how big you were to begin with.... like, honestly, most people won't notice a 280 lb person going to 260, whereas they would notice 160 to 140. I think I started getting comments from coworkers around 50 lbs down. But, honestly, I've run into people now that I'm 100+ down and they haven't said a word - I think sometimes people just don't know what or how to say anything. The important thing is YOU notice a difference!
  3. I am SO SO here with you... I remember worrying about this when I started seeing my fiance 8 months ago. The thing I've come to realize is you will always care about this 90% more than he will. I honestly don't think guys notice or care about anything other than the fact that there's a naked female in the room. That being said, I think a brief conversation is merited. NOT because you need to "warn" him - because it will likely help you relax and be more present in the moment. Something as simple as "I'm a little self conscious about my lose skin, just to let you know" might really help, because he'll probably say something like "I don't care about that at all, please take your pants off". O.O
  4. Have you tried making a list of reasons why you want to lose weight? I keep my list in my purse and reference it when I'm having a hard time.
  5. PM me any time! I'd love to answer any questions you have.
  6. Congrats!! Must feel great to be almost on the other side!
  7. I would literally start shaking every time I thought about my surgery, especially once I started the pre op diet. I think it's totally normal!
  8. I know this seems kinda lazy, but I'd really love an eating plan. I basically just eat tiny amounts of whatever's around, and rely on protein shakes for my nutrition. My NUT gave me a bunch of lists of good food, but idk, it's not working for me. Anyone have, like, a prescribed plan? I'm happy with my weight loss, but I need more structure! >.<
  9. Thanks so much guys... I was feeling pretty down that I let that happen, but it gets the best of us sometimes!
  10. Probably about 2-3 weeks, but I'm only 3 months out. And I just say I HATE stalls?!? I'm also gonna try shakes for a couple days...
  11. So, I just ate a piece of chicken too fast, and I am in SO much pain. I feel like I'm being stabbed. You guys ever done anything like this??? Make me feel like less of a screw up!!
  12. I still have a ways to go, but I think you can def see a difference!
  13. Idk, I would just make sure her ideas are realistic... more then a few of us could do tons of work, lose weight, and STILL not look like women in magazines (or, for that matter, other naturally thin women in our family). Yeah, focus on exercise and nutrition, but I would also focus on body acceptance. I don't know that wearing a bikini is that great of a focus for a little girl. >.< But that's just me! And I don't have kids.
  14. Here's my take on this (for what it's worth) - if I really want something, I have it. Just a little bit of it. Whether it's Christmas or some regular Tuesday, I don't call anything "off limits". On Christmas, I had a few cookies, a few bites of pie, a glass of wine, and then I stopped - because I know I can have these things any time, it's not a "one shot" deal. Do you think maybe you've been too rigid the rest of the year? But either way, DEF don't beat yourself up. You still did better then you would have pre op!!! We're just people, doing the best we can.
  15. Oooooh my God, I have stalls all the time. I'll lose so fast, then BAM, 10 days with no loss. And I have thoughts all the time, like, am I gonna fail, am I just gonna stop losing. Just take it a day at a time, do what you're supposed to do 80% of the time, and it'll come off.
