    Hardly seems fair, does it...ugh! Do you have specific triggers for yours too, @Aussie H?

    Knowing what triggers it helps a lot, I'm sure. I don't eat bread, crackers, etc. either...or potatoes, rice, or anything else like that. I do eat mainly chicken or turkey, cheese, the occasional scrambled egg with cheese, yogurt with chia seeds and some shrimp. With me, I don't think it's any of the foods I eat that will cause a low...it only happens when I don't eat enough (or close enough to my last meal). How do you meet your protein goals if you aren't a meat eater and can't do beans? Just asking out of curiosity...
  5. NSV of the Week - whats yours?

    Omg...you saying this just reminded me...I can wash my back in the shower now!! I haven't been able to do that for years and years...if it weren't for hubby it'd be pretty gross I'm all for dusty backscratchers!! Haven't used mine in a while either Congrats!!

    I didn't see your post before posting mine. I'm sorry you have to deal with this despite not being diabetic preop, Cinwa. It sucks, so I try to avoid it at all costs, and when I keep a good eating schedule (usually every 4 hours works best), it doesn't happen. The last time it happened to me I had just been super busy and hadn't taken the time to eat. Won't be doing that again anytime soon!

    I'm supposed to wait until the low feeling hits too...unless my sugar drops below 70. I was told to treat it regardless of how I'm feeling if it gets that low. You will most definitely know what the low feels like once it hits...dizziness or lightheaded, cold sweats, jitters, severe hunger are some of the symptoms. You feel like crap. I'm hoping you don't have that happen though The only reason it happened to me was because it was 5:30pm and I had only eaten one yogurt all day...my bad, lol.
  8. NSV of the Week - whats yours?

    I'm finding myself doing similar things that aren't necessary anymore as well The doorway to our 1/2 bath is smaller than average, to the point that I used to have to scootch myself through it kind of kitty corner. I found myself doing that today...I was like, "what are you doing?" I fit in there just like everyone else now
  9. NSV of the Week - whats yours?

    I know, right? Here we are, ALREADY worrying about maintenance...and we aren't even at goal yet! Lol I'm just starting to feel somewhat comfortable with the new lifestyle, after 6 (almost 7) months. It's nice to be able to trust that I'm doing the right things, that this is working, and that I can take a breath and relax a bit because of it. By relax, I don't mean give myself permission to go off plan...but just not think it's the end of the world if there is a day here or there that I don't meet every goal. I know how important the goals are, but with all of the traveling I've been doing this past week, the water goals have been lacking. I'm getting back on track with that today.
  11. Best tasting thing since surgery

    Sounds great when you say it, lol I think it's so scary for a lot of us because most of us have (obviously) never been able to maintain. I know it's probably not nearly as scary as I think it's going to be...just my overactive mind in overdrive right now.

    @CheeringCJ, my doctor put me at 184...he said that was the weight I'd reach from the surgery. I think I posted last week about how I discussed with my PA, at my 6 month follow up, that ulitmately I'd like to settle around 160. She told me that would be an extremely difficult (?) weight to reach. I'm not even 7 months out, and I'm at 193.2. Their estimate of my goal is only 9.2 pounds away. At less than 7 months out, lol. I'm paying her comments no mind, because I can totally see myself reaching 160 now. My short term goal is 175, and I'm almost there. Should be an interesting upcoming few months, right? The thought of the maintenance phase is scary though...

    I love pistachio, so I may just try that shake idea I very rarely do protein shakes, but that sounds like it might make a yummy snack! Also, let me know how the egg face recipes taste. I've seen so many people here mention the ricotta bake and say how good it is, I'd like to hear how the egg bites are.

    Michael, you are doing such a wonderful job!! Congrats on the awesome A1C!! Don't be surprised if it goes even lower than 5.7. The last two times mine was checked, it had dropped to 4.5. I feel you with no more finger sticks or diabetes meds...it's like sweet freedom!! I was insulin dependent prior to WLS, and it's been amazing not having to deal with it anymore! I tested the other day, just for the heck of it. My sugar was 68, lol. I actually had to eat something! Crazy...
