    Thanks...your looking great too. If you are like me the surgery was one of the best decisions we could have made. I feel so amazing now, energetic, and motivated to stay in shape

    Thanks Marvinator... it takes me half a day to eat the tin...hahhahahah
    I cant tolerate the protein shakes so struggling to get enough,.... so was hoping that the members here who say no of calories divided by 4 = protein gms were correct...obviously not.

    Have a great day

    Hi Marvinator...

    Sorry to bother you, but can you advise.... x x x

    I am a confused sleever....

    How to calculate protein grams for food.......

    Ok,,, a tin of red salmon.....weight 213 g

    Actaul Tin says ... 63g = 13g of protein......so the tin is 43.9 g
    My fitness Pal says its 60g
    Others on the forum say calories divide by 4...so its 87.5 g

    Please can people advise as this is a huge difference....????? i am not thick...... but this is getting to me x x x

    Thanks. Sorry for the late thanks but I don't ever check my profile. I also appreciate the feedback you gave me over my two piece pics. While all I see is all my flaws, it's nice to know others don't. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around my new body.

    LOL! Well ... not yet. Unless you count the funny feelings I get in my midsection sometimes.

    I know this is the right decision. But, damn, it's going to go from theory to real life in a second, isn't it?

    I was tickled by acdaniel's post this morning. He was sleeved 4 days ago and is practically levitating right now. I realize that's not normal, but it's fun to hear about anyway.

    My surgeon is promising I'm the kind of patient whose stars are aligned for success. I effing hope so!

    Thanks for checking in. I appreciate it.
