    Re: Bii

    With the new house I am not even thinking of them right now. And with the strength training my boobs are bothering me less and less. My hubby says they feel firmer. LOL.

    Re: I feel silly complaining about this

    Yup. I had to make sure I did not get under 40 BMI as well. I was very careful about maintaining my weight so I would still qualify. There is no way I could have lost all this weight without...
  7. Re: Surgery approval with previous heart surgery?

    You do need cardiac clearance or at least that was part of my process through insurance. As long as there are no issues with her bypass she will probably be approved. Best bet is that she should...

    You sound like you are well set. The most important is the research you have done and the next will be having a support network like this filled with people who have been there. It is really...

    Re: Breath

    Ahhhhh yes. Ketosis makes your breath disgusting. I had to chew a lot of gum. Extra teeth brushing, mouth wash. It will eventually subside. Also, be careful as I got thrush but it was during the...

    Whenever I stalled it was almost always because I was eating too little. When I would up my calories (in a healthy way) I would start losing again. Glad your stall is over.

    Re: Post Surgery

    The main reason I feel that protein is not quite as important the first week or two is that many people are on a clear liquids diet not requiring protein. So it seems to me that as long as you stay...
