  1. Hiding the scale

    So i am officially hiding my scale. For the last month i have been thinking i was in a stall because of the number on my scale. Went to see my surgeon for a check up and in all actuality i am down 12 pounds since my visit last month. Definitely doing a happy dance right now. It's also a big relief to know that the number really is moving down.
  2. Talk sense into me

    I swear the weight loss gods must hate me. I have been in a serious stall for almost a month now. I have tried upping my fluids my protein is consistently around 80g a day. I don't know what else to do. I also thought for sure that since i had to be on a liquid diet the last few days for a colonoscopy i am having done today that would get the scale moving nope no such luck in fact according to my scale i am up 4 pounds since Saturday. I am seriously down about this. I have a check up with the surgeon this week and i know i am going to get lectured because i havent lost any weight since the last check up. What can i do to get the scale moving again.
  3. Down 180 pounds!!!

    Way to go Trish awesome accomplishment
  4. Hard day... pet attacked

    @Kio i don't know how i missed this. I am terribly sorry you all had to go through something so traumatizing. I am also glad to hear she is doing better. May each day be a little better and she recover quickly.
  5. That "time of the month"

    Don't be suprised if your cycle changes. I was on continuing dose of birth control prior to surgery to prevent having periods however despite that a few days after having my surgery i started and my period lasted around 7 weeks (extreme case please don't panic) stopped for 4 days then started again for another two weeks. My obgyn says that its from the release of hormones after losing fat. Since i am just now 3 months post op i am hoping things will settle into a new normal fairly soon.
  6. Learning the hard way

    @BurgundyBoy that does sound delicious. I will be making a trip to Costco in the next few days i think i may just have to add ribeye to my list now. I just started testing the waters of cooking sous vide and did not realize that once cooked that they were pasteurized definitely good to know for future reference. I really do learn something new everyday on here
  7. Learning the hard way

    @Nana Trish than you i am feeling better now. I will definitely be making sure i have my papaya enzymes in my purse from now on. I eat a lot of lunch meat as well i just happen to be out and haven't had a chance to make it to the store yet. All the more reason i need to make time lol.
  8. Learning the hard way

    @Readytobeme at 3 months out i still find somethings to be trial and error or even on a day to day basis. Our bodies definitely go through major changes.
  9. Learning the hard way

    @Readytobeme no this was not something i cooked sous vide unfortunately. I will definitely in the future consider adding a sauce if i reheat. I may also just eat leftovers cold from now on. I used to love fish but can't seem to get it down now and i dont think it is a pouch issue. Its more of a i gag even at the smell. Le sigh the weird changes we go through.
  10. Learning the hard way

    I have papaya enzymes but of course the one time i really need them they are at home unfortunately.
  11. Learning the hard way

    Okay so let me just tell you reheated meat is a no go grr. I have now spent the last 30 mins or so in the bathroom miserable. It won't come back up all i keep doing is foaming (sorry if tmi) and my poor pouch is very angry. So much for eating leftovers for lunch. Is there a secret to leftovers lol if so definitely let me know. I am going to attempt to crawl out of tge bathroom and finish my day at work.
  12. First time

    So i finally got around to trying out cooking sous vide today. Let me tell you i highly recommend it. My pork chop was so tender and moist. It went down so well and i had no fit from my pouch (i have been having a lot of issues with most meat) so i was definitely pleased i didn't have an issue.
