    I've kind of made the same realization, I was tired of barely losing weight so I've started to work with a trainer twice a week and really feel a difference. I feel so much stronger, my balance is so much better and I'm hoping that my weight loss increases. Either way I know it was time.
    Even before this though, I've been needing a nap every day and sometimes 2 on the weekends. I've also been bruising a lot.
    I guess it is time for more bloodwork. I just had it done about 3 mos ago, don't know how things could change so quickly.
    I am off work until the 20th so I am trying to pay attention to what I am doing - no excuses.
    Good luck with your work with the nutritionist and muscle gain.
  2. rhobysgrl;bt184720]I would love to try this the BMI scale is such a downer, how do you figure you're lean body mass? The equation to figure this out would be great.


    My dietitian has a special scale that she uses to weigh me: a Tanita Body Composition Analyzer. Charlotte (my dietitian) enters my gender, age, and height. I have to take off my socks and shoes so that the scale can get an accurate reading via the metal foot sensors.

    Then the machine does the rest: I get my weight, BMI, BMR, IMPEDANCE, FAT%, FAT MASS, FFM, TBW, etc. It even provides what my predicted weight will be @ 30% BMI - but that is just a guideline.

    With the data Charlotte calculates my water intake, letting me know if I need to increase or maintain. Water intake is important for the muscles. Without water I can't maintain the muscle mass I want.

    FFM - Free Fat Mass (or Lean Body Mass) is everything in the body that is not fat; muscle, water, bone, connective tissue, etc. Muscle acts as the body's natural fat-burning engine, therefore it is important to maintain or even gain healthy muscle mass when exercising or dieting. So, my goal is not really to lose weight - but to gain muscle. The more muscle I have, eventually, the less fat there will be.
  3. Why?! Why do I have to do a food blog? Or a food diary? Or a food planner? I don't WANT to think about food so much! I'm trying to forget about food. I sure as hell don't want to write down everything I eat! I KNOW what I am eating. Why do I need to write it down as proof to the rest of the world of what I'm eating? I hate this! It's an utter embarrassment! Food makes me feel out of control. When I want to eat it's almost primal. I just want to stuff it into my mouth, chew and swallow, rinse and repeat. That's it! I don't want to THINK about it! I know why I eat. I hate why I eat. Eating is just supposed to be an intake of nourishment: vitamins, minerals, necessary proteins. All a means of survival. But food has become something so much more to me. For a long time food was the only source of pleasure that I allowed myself to have. Sex was not permitted. The pleasure derived from sex was proof of my deviant nature: I was a whore, a ho, a slut. Now, I know that is not true - but that's what I thought. 25 years ago. The damage inflicted upon me by my sexual predator is severe. But, I hope that I have gotten to the point that I understand (or at least I am finally able to admit that I need to understand) why I turned to food. But, if I am trying to get passed all of that why do I need to keep such a focus on it??!! I just want to forget food. I don't want to write it down all damn day long!!

    I am new to this site as well. I think you may have posted this to my page. I am not sure though LOL. I have had the same issues as you and I am almost 3 months post-op. The hardest thing for me is going to my mother's house because she has any and everything you want to eat! Also, going out to dinner.
  6. Okay. I am having a hell of a time navigating this site! I can't tell if I'm blogging or just posting or what....
  7. Good morning! I am new to this forum. I have already had my surgery and lost weight, but I am struggling with medication, eating, and anger issues. I feel a bit out of control, which is hard for me. Can anyone relate to this?

Lean Body Mass

by Jinoshio.Sote on 06-25-2015 at 03:10 PM
I recalculated my goal weight.

Before I just grabbed a number that sounded good (reachable) out of thin air and plugged it in. Now, I've learned that there is a far better method than just guessing what weight is best for me.

My Lean Body Mass is 163 lbs. This is how much just my bones and muscles weigh. Wow.

A woman needs more % fat than a man does (Yippee for me!) LOL

10 - 13 % is Essential. I should never have less than this

Progress

by Jinoshio.Sote on 06-08-2015 at 02:27 PM
I have a therapist and I have joined a gym. There are no words to describe the way that I feel; watching my body change like this...

I can get out of bed without rocking.
I can walk to the bathroom without leaning on furniture because my ankles, feet, and knees hurt so much.
I can walk around the block without sounding like a winded rhino.
I am down from size a 30-32 to a 22-24.
I am going to break the 300 lb mark, soon. I can't believe this!!

Weight Loss?

by Jinoshio.Sote on 04-28-2015 at 11:07 AM
Should I expect to keep losing 10-20 lbs a month - or will it slow down? If I only lose 5 lbs in a month is that good? When should I start worrying about how little I am losing? I know it is still early for me to be worrying about this - but I have soooo much weight that I need to lose. It feels like I will NEVER reach my goal.

How much weight should I be losing a month?

by Jinoshio.Sote on 04-23-2015 at 11:39 AM
I am having difficulty eating. I log in my food and it tells me that I am not eating enough. But I can't eat anymore. I am also having trouble eating too fast. I was told that I was to take 30 mins to eat, but I don't take nearly that long. 3 or 4 bites and I am done. But an hour or two later I am hungry again. Am I doing something wrong?

I think I have lost another 15 lbs, but I was told that I am losing weight too fast. WHAT?! Are you kidding me? How much is too much?
