  1. Stalled at 218 or 217, trying to drink more water and keep active. I also use that bariatric app also.
  2. https://www.loyolamedicine.org/news/loyolas-exercise-program-patients-who-have-had-bariatric-surgery-01282014 I really like this bariatric exersice program I think It's easy and also keeps you moving and can be modified for any skill level.
  3. I don't get enough protein from real food. I am still having trouble with water also.
  4. Did your Nutritionist say why no protein shakes? I met with one today and she said protein shakes were great. It's like everything else they all have there own way of doing things and we need to just follow what they say.
  5. I don't swim, I walk in the pool and use the noodle between my legs and pedal like I am on a bike, I do leg raises and hold on the side and kick. I sit on the bench in the pull and try to do a simple v-seat that's really hard. It's either too hot here or raining. so the pool works best for me. I figure any movement is better than none which is what got me into this position. I was cleared for the pool after I got my staples out about 16 days after surgery.
  6. Kim dr said it was the scar tissue forming and normal. I don't understand why the old conversation is coming up, oh well. Eileen the cheese it's look great. Definitely will make them. I got my mandolin slicer the other day and I made zucchini noodle lasagna. It was delish. I have also hit a stall. I don't walk much I normally exercise in the pool, but the weather has been nasty so I have been kind of slacking. Although I was able to get in the pool tonight. I tried to wAlk in stores but my wallet didn't like that. I finally found a nutritionist and I meet with her tomorrow. I need guidelines on calories, carbs etc. So happy everyone is doing well.
  7. Kim dr said it was the scar tissue forming and normal.
  8. Yes but it just started. Weird.....I am going to call the dr tomorrow to make sure it's normal.
  9. Mzscarlet you look fabs, I can really see it in your face too. Kim it's not really pain in my left side just an odd internal pulling, that's where my biggest incision was. The open wound was on my right side. I have been using cvs scar gel. They are all soft but still red. I am so happy we are all healing and doing well.
  10. I never liked to wear snug fitting clothing, so I always bought a size bigger. My pre-surgery size was 3x yes it was a wee bit roomy, but that is what I felt comfortable in. I put one on the other day and the arm pits were hugh. So I decided to try on a 1X shirt and I was completely comfortable. My husband said he was seeing a difference in my waist and bust. Tomorrow is my day off so it is goodbye 3X and hello 1X that have been in a dresser drawer. This is so exciting. Pants are still the same size. I am now getting a pulling sensation in my left side every now and then. I know others have complained of pain in their left side, I was wondering if you know why. I am going to call my dr. on Monday to just report this. It could just be part of the healing process but I want to be sure.
  11. This looks awesome I can't wait to make it.
  12. You look great and are an encourage to all of us.
  13. Wow Eileen, you look great. You can really see it on you. I am like Murk and losing it slowly, and not seeing dramatic results. We will all get there. I am so proud of all of us.
