well.... this was not a good week on the scale....

its the first time my weekly average is higher than the previous week too. I do know I'm retaining more fluids than usual, I can feel it in my wedding band.

My carbs are higher than usual, I tried telling myself not to worry about it, since it's all from seasonal produce and berries. But it's not. I started relying on protein bars when things are really busy at work. And the carbs really add up quick with those things.

so I think I'll cut them back for now, and see if it makes a difference.

stats:

hw: 378

LW: 190.6

TW: 190.8

goals: anything under 188, which is my lowest weight and 178 ( 200 pounds lost)

take care everyone!

I need to do the same -- concentrate on pure protein snack sources. Some of the protein bars are triggers for me. I keep wanting to snack when I eat them. I'm going to cut out most side dishes for a while too and see if that helps. I feel like I've been stuck at this weight for a good bit, up and down a pound or two, bouncing back and forth.

I am very tired of Opti, my daily chant is "eye on the prize". I was not very happy stepping on the scale today. I was hoping for a more significant loss. I have four more days of Opti and the RYN surgery on Friday.

Have a great week!

You can do it. Just a few more days!

I actually loved Opti - weird, I know. I used it for a liquid diet years ago. I mixed in the blender with half a frozen banana and some pina colada drops. I never felt like I was suffering. I drank away 100 lbs. Of course it came back.

How long were you on it to lose 100lbs? Some people like it but for me whatever combination I come up with I still get a horrible aftertaste.

Six months. It was pretty fast. But as soon as I started eating my normal large volume, the weight came back.

I also used the grape water enhancer drops. Stronger flavor - may be worth a try.

You only have a few days to go. Soon it will just be a memory and you will be on your way.

Well... I'm in surgery mode which means lots and lots of swelling and fluid retention and eating food that makes me feel good instead of that makes me healthy.

HW: 319
LW: 159.6
TW: 162.5

Next goal... still 145 for BMI "normal"

Some day I'll get there. :P My weight has already started to come down since surgery, so I'm not super worried. And, hey, I've got really super awesome looking boobs right now!

Hi all,

So this is my first weekly weigh in posting. I started Opti on Friday and it's not dreadful. I have surgery next Friday, September 1. I am really excited! Although sometimes it still feels surreal.

I feel like I should start getting some accountability measures in place. So here I go! Weekly weigh in :)

hw: 308

lw: 308

tw: 298

Goal: well, just to keep going with Opti for now, and have a healthy surgery next week!

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. Choose happy.

Opti -10 M1 -25.5 M2 -10
