  1. When I was able to start eating solid protein I felt like my energy returned. For me that was a while. It will come back though.
  2. Half Marathon Training....Only a short year ago I was dreaming of surgery and I can't believe how far I've come!

      I am so excited for you.. I am your starting weight and not even had surgery yet... I love your energy so similar to mine. Having bypass in Oct. Last weekend my good friend directed a first half marathon 600 runners it was crazy and I got to volunteer I kept thinking this time next year I will be hopefully in a mind frame of training and doing this.. My first goal is a 5k at our gym with friends. I have all friends that exercise, run and all healthy eating.. I am glad for a great support tea...

      Awesome weight4change...A support group of friends to train with would be awesome. Unfortunately I do everything solo. I don't have a local support group, I just get online when I need some motivation. Thanks for your kind words. You are capable of more than you ever imagined, you just have to believe you can do it! :)

  3. Working out is finally in the mix and it seems to not only have broken my stall, but helped me lose a pound a day. Loving it while it lasts :)

  4. Thanks everyone! My tattoo is quickly "wrapping" around my arm That's why I'm waiting to have the piece finished
  5. Down 50 pounds and feeling much better.
  6. I rarely come to TT anymore, but I must say seeing your post made me smile. I should visit more often....miss your posts!!! You look AMAZING!!!!
  7. The way my surgeon and nut explained it, when you have such a small caloric intake, your body goes into famine mode and your basal metabolic rate drops. If you can stay at 1000-1200 calories (probably more for men), you are more like a "normal" dieting person and will get your body burning calories again and the scale should move. I was stalling at 4 weeks out because my calories were so low. When I started consuming 1000 calories on a regular basis, the weight started falling off again.

      I didn't know there was a facebook group for TT. I know a bunch of us left here about a year ago and made a group on fb, but it wasn't affiliated.

      I established the fb group as a private group. So no one sees your posts or pictures except for the members, we have over 90 members so far an it is a wonderful and supportive group. If anyone is interested look me up and I can add you. Katherine Dilallo-Petrucci

      It's a secret group - no posts are linked to your wall and your friend's can't see what you post. I think the platform is easier for those of us who work a lot and can use our phones to find support when we need it :)
