  1. @BurgundyBoy Also, an update. I dropped down 10 lbs within a 1.5 week span, which was shocking. I am now stalled again, sticking to 259 for about 2-3 weeks now. I'm guessing since I'm so close to my 100 lb loss mark my loss will slow and become more sporadic, which I hear is common. I'll try a kick start with going back to protein shakes and low carb (again) and maaaaybe even actually get into the gym.
  2. LOL well I fib to myself daily. I'm the WORST about working out. Of course we just went through Hurricane Irma, so that's my latest excuse for not going to the gym.....even though we're home now....and there's power.....
  3. I referred her to my surgeon and she was approved. She had her surgery today. I'm going to see her and was thinking about what I would have wanted someone to bring me in the hospital. I'm drawing a complete blank. What would you have liked someone to bring you in the hospital after your WLS?
  4. I swear all 75 lbs came out of my face. (I'm on the left in both photos)
  5. This one? https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0017WG180/ref=sxts_sxwds-tsp_1_a_it?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=3155180962&pd_rd_wg=B8BkY&pf_rd_r=Q1QW4GP07F5N1RQFKQVW&pf_rd_s=desktop-sx-top-slot&pf_rd_t=301&pd_rd_i=B0017WG180&pd_rd_w=FliUj&pf_rd_i=now%2Bstevia&pd_rd_r=1H5P8MNVDTX4PYK5PPS0&ie=UTF8&qid=1502298531&sr=1&th=1
  6. LOL not TMI at all, that is the OTHER issue I have that makes me stall. That protein just gets me good, I have to drink Smooth Move tea or I won't lose any weight for days.
  7. Maybe hormones or stress, who knows. I'm just glad to see it going back down! My kids start school for the first time tomorrow and we're in the process of a military move so it's a very stressful time.
  8. I've been using the individual Truvia packets. Might be time to find something else.
  9. I DID actually know this, funnily enough. My mother is diabetic and only eats strawberries and apples. I knew she couldn't have grapes. I keep them around because I have little kiddos and they eat them daily. I do love blackberries, I might go back to those.
  10. I think I was more shocked that Truvia has carbs, even though it's zero calorie. Science confuses me.
  11. Incidentally, I went out and got a new protein powder and cut out most of my carbs for the last 2 days and I'm back down 3 lbs. So, there's that. This process is just becoming frustrating at this point. I need to cut down my carbs, so I up my protein and fluids, then I have OTHER issues which definitely make me stall out. I just haven't found that balance yet. I will confess something embarrassing, I haven't started working out yet. I go on hikes and swim with my kiddos, just day to day stuff, but no actual gym time. I've lost 75 lbs without "working out" so I can't really complain, but I know it's time to start. I'm just so lazy.
  12. Before I went on vacation, for the first 3 months post op, I didn't eat any hard carbs (no bread, pasta, rice, or fruit with skin) and very little other carbs, so that was something new I added to my diet in Texas, and it actually seemed to help, strangely enough. I was on vacation for 2-3 weeks and one day I guess my body had enough and I felt very weak and faint. This is when I reintroduced carbs (whole wheat, some crackers etc, no pasta or rice) and I instantly felt better. Maybe I've adjusted to carbs now and it's time to take them back out, that's the only thing I can think of causing this weight gain.
  13. Hopefully you can see this.
