  1. I brought about 100 one bars back to Oman from the USA a few weeks ago... a considerable portion of my luggage allowance! Lemon cake, peanut butter pie, maple donut, birthday cake, cinnamon roll <— soooo good, almond bliss... so convenient for when I’m out of the house and reasonable food is not available. I’m on holiday now, and I’ve brought enough for two a day if I need them.

    I love you, @Aussie Bear! This is really the essence of it, right here.

    What Are You Wearing Today?

    You look beautiful in that lovely dress! Such a catch 22 to be moving down sizes and needing new clothes and looking better so wanting to look nice but knowing that whatever you buy might not last even a month!!! It’ll stop eventually, but so hard not to buy too much as you go.

    swollen stomach

    My stomach felt sort of puffy for about the first month. At a week or so out from surgery, I was definitely still having some swelling. I think you’re probably experiencing something normal, but if you have pain, get it checked out. Calling the surgeon’s office is always an option. It might put your mind at ease.

    Food fail and sore pouch

    It sounds like we behave fairly similarly on vacation: a little teeny bit of everything, ficus in protein, with wine to chase things down I think my pouch is just fairly sensitive.

    Newbie introduction

    Welcome and congrats for making the big decision to address regain. After having gained and lost (and gained and lost and gained and lost) sooo many times in my life, I know how easy it is to ignore it until it slaps you in the face. Good for you for making positive changes!

    How much is too much fruit and whole milk questions.

    Just snarfed down a fresh fig. Ahhh, summertime, when the fruit is ripe. I don’t eat a ton of fruit, but I do love it. Better than junk food, in my current opinion.

    New work headshots!

    You are a lovely lady at any size, @Cardamom77! This is a very nice professional photo, and you look good in it! It must be exciting to be getting a new one that will reflect your current appearance, though. What a nice way to get a shot of your updated look. Photos really help me understand how much my body has change, and I’m sure you’ll be delighted with the new photo.

    Food fail and sore pouch

    Currently testing the waters with Georgian cuisine (the country, not the state). So far, meat, meat, meat is ok! Some very interesting flavors with lots of spices and stewing. I am apparently no longer a vegetarian while traveling. Add some dumplings, and nope. Too bad because I used to love dumplings They have so many nice bread things here Just little bites here and there. Otherwise pouch unhappy. Traveling is hard. How do you do it, @BurgundyBoy? I have pouch misadventures every time I’m outside my country of residence.

    Food fail and sore pouch

    I drink it with plenty of milk and lukewarm. Like I said, I don’t really like it, I just have to have it now. Egg drop soup I mistakenly drank hot. Hot + pouch = barf, in my case!

    NSV of the Week - whats yours?

    Yes, this is the first time in my life when vacation does not equal weight gain! Just got back from 3 weeks in the US, and zero change. Blows my mind. I always wondered how “regular people” managed to do that...

    Food fail and sore pouch

    France. Tea is often not good there, so I drank coffee just long enough to get really hooked. Now I’m an addict. It doesn’t even taste good to me!

    Two modes

    I seem to do that, too. I just make sure I hit my minimum goals and try not to worry too much. Some days it’s like, jeez, how do I normally manage to choke down enough food to not starve? Never thought I’d be THAT person!!
