    Way to go! You're doing fabulous. I lost about 1.5 lbs, but I rethought what I cooked this year -- was had 3 people and 3 dogs, lol! But a great time.
  3. Re: Vegetables - some good ideas from the vgs group :)

    Our freezer is in perpetual use -- I make ahead and freeze in meals that work for 2 servings for Jim, small one (or two) for me. And those things have vegetables in it. In the South, we do get a lot...

    Re: HELP -- Vegetable choices???

    Yes, a world where pumpkin pie isn't a vegetable seems wrong. In the South, Banana Pudding ('Nanner puddin' is noted as a vegetable choice on menus, lol.)

    HELP -- Vegetable choices???

    At 2+ years, although I think I'm doing fine with tracking, weight, etc., and my protein choices, vegetables are still a question mark for me.

    WHAT vegetables are you "old timers" eating daily? I...

    Re: Why did I even want this sleeve?

    Anyone with that much going on, especially when they were going for a change (positive one), would be stressed and maybe a little depressed.

  13. Re: Waiting for surgery, gained weight, so embarrassing.

    I wouldn't get really stressed since you know what you're doing :)

    I would offer a couple of suggestions: 1) do track even the less the choices; 2) journal your feelings! It's an easy useful tool...

    Re: Best tool in your weight loss?

    For me, daily tracking (I use MyPlate) of calories and protein, to be sure I get enough. WATER, eating slow, and weighing daily - no magic.

    For me, the best decision we (husband & I) ever made to spend money -- self-pay. And I only wish I'd had it done earlier.

    Re: Major Stall

    I'm sure you've already reviewed your protein/carb/water stuff; Be sure you are getting enough sleep as well. And if you haven't been tracking food for a while, go back to it.
