    Slight weight gain. Help!

    Totally water weight. It seems if I have a fun weekend mine will jump Monday and settle back where it goes by Wednesday. Have a couple low carb days with higher water intake and you'll be back in your sweet spot! Awareness is key!

    Oooh, a big derby hat! It would be fitting today!
  3. Thank you so much for your bravery posting the pictures. This helps me mentally prepare for what might be in my future. Also, no drains sounds great! My thoughts are with you as you heal.

    I'm from a really tiny town so we go in waves. This year i will have 3 weddings. Some years it is 5-6! Oh the bra shopping was a nightmare. I hadn't tried strapless since I was a 46 bust. Went to Lane Bryant and tried three styles...and about nine sizes. I was exhausted but I think they will stay put! The experience definitely put a check in the "I need to get these fixed pro column." My husband was terribly confused by the whole thing as I kept going up and down to find the right combination of band and cup since they didn't have the one I needed in the style I wanted. Thank goodness it was 40% off, so was everything at ON!

    Another wedding next weekend...and I'm back for advice. Does this work for an outdoorsy, casual event? Old Navy size XL. Blows my mind this fits...

    Rewiring of brain

    I went to dinner with family at an Italian restaurant last night. They had the specials listed with a lunch price and serving size that didn't come with soup or salad. I was so excited! I tried the sausage and ravioli and it was delicious. I ate the few I wanted to satisfy my craving and my husband finished it. I wish more places would do something like that! It makes the amount I eat seem more normal and I'm not spending twice as much on food I won't eat. I'm over 2 years out so ravioli is occasionally on my treat list and this was great for me. I travelled for work most of this month and my coworkers commented on how little I eat...and I marveled at how much they consumed. It was hard to not take all my leftovers and seemed so wasteful...

    Happy Easter! And it snowed here in the Midwest, so I didn't get to wear skinny jeans and flats...had to settle for boots. New top and cardigan from Maurice's and my Nickle and Suede white cork earrings were the highlight of my outfit!
  8. I have a sleeve but my program has the same requirements for either surgery. When I wake up, I take a Centrum Adult multivitamin and krill oil. 9am Celebrate calcium chew 11am Celebrate calcium chew 2pm Centrum Adult multivitamin 4pm Celebrate calcium chew I'm over two years out and still use alarms on my phone, I get very busy at work and it would otherwise be forgotten. I am down to once a week for the sublingual B12, my blood work is always high so each year they have backed it off. I also used to need iron and vitamin D, but those numbers are all in the normal range now and I don't take anything extra. I like that I'm on an OTC multivitamin approved by my program, I feel like it saves money and my blood work is great. Good luck!

    Unintended experiment

    My recent vacation experience totally lines up with your findings. On my normal schedule, I mix part of a chocolate or caramel Premier into my coffee and drink the rest for breakfast. I took a few of them with me just in case on our road trip but wanted to try eating real food at the encouragement of my nutritionist. And breakfast was free at all hotels on the trip, so that seemed like a good time to test it out....no cooking! The energy difference was legit as was the amount of time between meals. My husband noticed and asked if I was switching to 5 or 6 mini meals instead of the 3 meals and a snack I have been doing for over 2 years. I'm not a fan of the vanilla or banana either! I usually blend the strawberry with real fruit post work out to use those up. I haven't seen peaches and cream in stores here yet. I'm going to continue one shake for breakfast and have real food lunches this week and see how that goes.

    Thanks for the hair compliments! It took it's sweet time growing back in after surgery. I rarely curl it (might have a slight burn on my forehead from this attempt) but it was fun to get sassed up with big Texas sized hair!

    I did find some jewelry and had a blast in Texas.

    Gaining? Seriously?

    I also only log the lowest weight and consider the other days a "stall." I think it tells a better story in my chart of the stair steps down over time. The 3-4 pound jumps just boggle my mind when I was eating practically the same thing every day. The body is a wonder.

    I could use some fashion advice please. I went shopping this weekend for a country club wedding March 3rd in Texas. Does this dress work? Groom first told me it was somewhat formal, then revised to cocktail attire. Nothing was noted on the invitation and the wedding is at 4. Another friend mentioned I could dress it up with jewelry, is it too casual? This dress is a 16. I pulled multiple 22's before my friend convinced me to leave the plus size section...I wore a size 13 in 6th grade. And it has pockets! The shoes are navy.
