    Thanks for the reply! I love both of them and they are a staple in a low carb diet, I hope after surgery I'll be able to eat them also, along with brussel sprouts and cabbage...

    Thank you! I walk just about everywhere, and I also am a big fan of weight training, but I also take swim strength training classes three times a week as well. I highly recommend swimming of any kind if you can get to a pool/lake/whathaveyou, especially for people recovering from injury; it's so low impact on joints and burns sooooo many calories. Plus it's swimming so it doesn't feel like exercise. It just feels like fun!

    Hi Sandra! I appreciate your input. Tell me more about your body composition scans. Have you had the DEXa scan?

Looking at year 2

by Sandra3 on 01-19-2017 at 04:46 AM
A few months ago I was reading about how our genes affect our weight loss that first year post-op, and how our environment will affect year 2 and the following years.

I will be one year out tomorrow and will have my one year post-op on Saturday.
This past-year has been many things, sometimes a roller coaster with many ups and a few downs, sometimes really cozy and calm...but those precious times are just not enough to always feel stress-free.
Still, that past year has

In a stall for two months. Not gaining is winning (on the weight loss battle field ;-)!

by Sandra3 on 01-10-2017 at 12:02 AM
I was in a stall since November.

Had a bad flu, my asthma kicked in (I was almost free of it since 2011) and while I was happy to be able to stay away from antibiotics, I still had to take my asthma medication for several weeks.
At the same time I've been in a stall since November, didn't pay attention for a few weeks, then realized in December that it was indeed again a side effect of the medication.
In 2011 when I had the worst issues with my lungs (asthma/pneumonia

Cauliflower is back on the menu!

by Sandra3 on 01-03-2017 at 11:58 PM
Soon after surgery there's many smells and food I couldn't stand any longer. Cauliflower (and all cruciferous veggies) pepper bell, some protein powder or vitamins...the list was long.
For the last three months I've been able to drink a protein powder I used before surgery and it felt great!
But I did try cauliflower several times and was never successful.
The thing is, here in Taipei there's many veggies I like I can't find, and in Asian cuisine they use lots of cabbage and

Happy New Year!

by Sandra3 on 12-31-2016 at 05:28 AM
Happy New Year fellow sleevers!
In three weeks it will be my post-op for the big "one year" anniversary.
Looking back at the past 11 months I can't believe that I lost so much weight in such a "short time".
The beginning and few weeks/months post-op it was not always easy but today life is much easier compare to one year ago.
Just last week I was visiting Osaka, and we walked an average of 5 miles per day and I was ok! At some point we walked 7 miles

Shoe size

by Sandra3 on 11-21-2016 at 08:34 PM
Hello friends!!

Today it's time to talk about a serious topic:shoes!!

When being big for so long, most of the time I didn't see the point of buying more "giant tent style" clothing...and instead I would enjoy to get nice shoes, at least I thought that if I was going to lose that extra weight one day, at least I would still be able to wear my fav shoes....WRONG!!

So far, ten months out, +90 pounds down since my first consult (110 from my highest
