  3. 20 more pounds

    It's more like a couple of years. I started at 360 and now I'm staying between 180 and 190. It will be 5 years for me in a couple of weeks. I know some folks have to go back to basics, Corrine, I've been very fortunate that I never stopped the basic plan. The important point in all of this is that you can lose more weight after monumental stalls or regains. Keep your eyes on the prize, NOBODY wants to regain. It's a lifetime commitment.
  4. "At goal" pics

    Shakira is awesome, and you are too. :-)
  5. This is all about you, you can't change anyone else. He will do what he does. WLS does NOT change relationships.
  6. My body has gone crazy!!!!

    Austin, your post reads like you're on a mission, no harm in that, just consider that you are on a lifelong change and there isn't any hurry to get anywhere. Weight loss is about what you put in your mouth and has little/none to do with cardio/vascular efforts. That's for a while other reason. I lost half my body weight from 360 to 180 with zero exercise. Thankfully, I enjoy walking and had my left knee replaced 3 years ago and can do it again, just pointing out that exercise is not the key for weight loss. I've been here for a long long time and many other folks who no longer check in back up what I am saying from their own personal experience. You're doing great, man, patience, grasshopper!
  7. 5 day pouch test questions

    Soups are my go-to when I eat out (rarely). In the winter, I eat them at home as well.

  9. I ate my piece of ham and mashed potatoes for lunch today. Yesterday, I had sausage, bacon , and eggs for breakfast and very little else all day, half of a grilled cheese for supper and that's about it. No wanting like in the old days...
  10. All four of my daughters were here together for a few hours this morning, that hasn't happened since last Christmas. Pict of all my girls:
  11. What are you eating?

    Soups, and still soups as a go to at almost 5 years.
  12. What are you eating?

    Eggs took me a year.
  13. Turkey and stuffing ?

    Potatoes have a lot of vitamin C and some varieties like russet have a few grams of protein. I've always been a good Irish meat and potatoes guy. I don't eat potatoes that often, I just don't ban anything completely. My sweet tooth is long gone, so sugars have banned themselves from my eating plan.
  14. Best tasting thing since surgery

    Didn't know there was such a thing. Sometimes on the road, I stop at KFC and get a leg and a thigh for lunch.
  15. 6-Month Post-Op Sleep Issues

    Trazadone works for me, 50mg, but higher doses are available.
