    Ann, thank you for hooking me up to fooducate.com great resource, I looked up the Triscuit Rice cracker that i substitute for bread, and the first ingredient is long grain brown rice, but it def has soybean oil which is not the best, followed by whole wheat flour http://www.fooducate.com/app#!page=p...C-1231381A4CEA

    I appreciate your input and definitely need get it in my brain to keep it simple... eat dense protein first then lots of colored, high fiber, low starch vegetables. That has been my mantra for the last three days.

    Thank you again! and I am off to cook up some chicken fajitas!

    Ann, just wanted you to know how helpful your posts and thoughts have helped me some days when I really needed to "hear" some common sense about wls. I'm glad to see you're still providing your sage wisdom with the group, some of them really need some good advice. I wish you continued success and thanks for sharing!!

    I loved your post to the gal who is reconsidering her surgery. As a 65 year old man, it is great to hear that we "senior citizens" can achieve great results with the Sleeve. I will have my surgery this Tuesday in Piedras Negras, Mexico. I hope that my journey will be as successful as yours has been.

  12. Ann2 - thanks for your post of support this morning. I enjoy your straightforward style of posting and you always have valuable input. Life after the sleeve is a lifelong learning process and you've been rocking it! Happy Easter!

    Well I think its awesome, so stand up and take a bow!! I want to be like you sometime soon, gotta get myself together. In the meantime, going keep loving myself and strutting my stuff but I'll get back on top of this soon. I have started weighing in every morning,someone else told me to add that to my routine. Now i just need to stop buying the wrong snacks in house and buy the good ones and eat them(smile). I do buy good snack but get sick of them and start craving junk especially sugar(soda/ice cream/cake oh and sometimes chips). Thank you for the advice, take care and Happy Valentines Lovely!

    Hey Ann2, that means a lot coming from you!! You've been in the game for a long time and continue to support and advise others. Thank you so much, I feel awesome but its a battle for me daily. I'm not sure I'll be able to maintain as the sweet demon rides my back constantly. What has been your secret, how have you maintained?

5 Months Post-Op - Down 68 Pounds and New NSVs

by Ann2 on 01-18-2015 at 08:55 AM
After 5 months post-op, this morning I weighed 167.4 pounds. I'm down from 235.6 (which I weighed 2-1/2 months prior to surgery). I've lost 68.2 pounds total (which includes losses from my own pre-op diet and the doc's pre-op diet) and 48.6 pounds since surgery on August 18, 2014.

Weight loss this month slowed to 7 pounds from monthly losses that have averaged 10.5 pounds. Toward the end of Month Four my bariatric P.A. urged me to start raising my daily cals from 800 toward 1,000,

After my own two-month diet I was down 11.6
After my surgeon's two-week pre-op diet, down another 8.0
1 month post-op, down another 10.4
2 month post-op, down another 11.8
3 months post-op, down another 8.8
4 months post-op, down another 10.4

Two Months Post-Op -- Down 24 Lbs. Post-Op, Down 42 Lbs. Total

by Ann2 on 10-18-2014 at 07:23 AM
And that headline pretty much says it all.

Very, very happy with how it's going. Had a super good VSG surgery and an easy-peasy recovery.

Four weeks post-op, I got a bonus surgery -- gallbladder was removed.

Was hitting protein targets (60-80 grams) by Day Five. Haven't thrown up once. Am now able to drink water easily, almost like pre-op. Energy is coming back strong. Clothes sizes are down from 20 to 16. Looking much cuter.
