    Hi MargeB

    I saw a message you left for tinman regarding macros and how if you stay under 1000 calories per day you stall. I've eaten 800-900 calories for the past 10 months or so and I'm basically stalled. I've been scared to go higher since I'm not losing here. Im just feeling a little lost and I wonder if you still track your macros, or only protein and water as Tinman recommends.
    Thanks for your insight, I appreciate it!

    Hey Marge,

    I have no idea what that means. The only things I count are grams of protein and ounces of water. Seriously. That's it. I found that anything else really doesn't matter. Eat until you are full and then put the fork down. Not over eating is the most important thing there is.

    That's good to hear, Marge.

    I've always said that coffee is the last drug I will give up. FYI, my surgeon allowed me to have "a little coffee" at 10 days post-op. And that's really all I've had since surgery nearly 16 months ago. I have half a cup or a cup most days. But I "cut it" with hot skim milk -- my homemade lattes. FYI -- as a result, I sleep a WHOLE lot better these days than I used to.

    You're going to do great.

Venting - Please don't read if you aren't in the mood for whining

by MargeB on 02-09-2016 at 07:53 PM
I am 11 weeks out as of yesterday. I have lost exactly 30 lbs. I must admit, I was hoping for the magic of MORE, but I also must admit that I am still fairly sedentary. I'm working on moving, but it is very hard. Today, for example, I didn't want to walk. I made myself walk, and it took a full hour for a 2.25 mile walk. GO ME!!!

I'm just wondering how long it's going to take my body to adjust digestively and otherwise to my new normal. I'm wondering what my new normal will
