Topic: getting in 64 oz of water

I was just wondering if anyone has any tips/tricks they use for this? Like a special bottle or a timer...? I am drinking water but I don't think I'm hitting 64.

Thanks!

Topic: RE: 6 MONTHS OUT... My nose is like a fountain and a question for the ladies.

For what it's worth, my plastic surgeon (for prior breast reconstruction not for WLS) told me that while there is no "cure" for excess skin post weight loss, that the body does redistribute fat some and that where I'm sagging now may not be the same sag in six months. In my case we were discussing my now empty breasts that he had reconstructed with belly fat. His advice was to wait for about six months post goal, and give my body a chance to "bounce back". He said that many of his patients find that their face fills back in a little, and they get a little more subQ fat in places, which can on occasion appear to ad a little thickness to the skin.

Topic: RE: So my new kick....Protein pudding!!

I recently started mixing a spoonful of the sugar free pudding mix into my cottage cheese.. It's an easy way for me to have just a little and I find it delicious! I use 1/2 a cup of cottage cheese, one scoop of plain whey protein powder, and a tsp of the pudding mix. Depending on the liquid in the cottage cheese you might need to add a TBSP or two of Fairlife FF to the mix.

Only plastic surgery will tighten skin. Lotions, wraps, treatments... all are a waste of money.

I am the master of my own regain.

Topic: RE: cravings (sorry I'm posting so much today!)

You're not alone! Honestly, I think I struggled with cravings and head hunger most at the very very beginning. I'm only 5 months out so take this with a grain of salt, but for me the cravings and saying no to them has gotten easier. For the most, part I don't crave bread or other super carb loaded things anymore.

When I do crave crap, I've found some surprisingly silly coping tools. One is to watch an episode or even just a few clips of My 600pound life and Fat Doctor- puts the fear of God right on into me.

Another is to look up the nutrional info. I mean I google the heck out of it and really let the reality of just how many carb/calories and just how little nutrion that foods gives.

I also like to watch YouTube videos of other WLS'ers and see their progress. It motivates me so much.

At other times I just have to shut that thought down pronto. I WILL NOT entertain even the idea of it. No. That's pretty new to me and takes a lot of discipline. But it's like working out: the more you do it, the stronger you become.

Hmm, I use sugar free fat free Jello brand from the box. It says 25 calories per serving and 100 for the whole box. Not sure what you are seeing....

Do you use sugar free or regular pudding mix? I checked and both say they are 100 calories...which seems weird. Just curious. Thanks!
