Summer with my family at the lake is going to be a challenge foodwise... We went out to lunch yesterday and I split a sandwich with my dad's wife, but I have no idea caloriewise what I ate. Then we went to a neighbor's for drinks and snacks and I had trouble resisting the snacks (cheese, crackers, salami), then had dinner, but forgot to weigh/measure my food. What I ate in snacks, should have been considered my dinner!

I've been at the same weight for a week. It may be a stall or a stair-step before another drop, but it feels more like I'm not in as much control as when I'm by myself... Today I'm on my own and hope to regroup.

B - coffee and yogurt

L - taco salad

D - taco salad

S - protein shake

Had a doctors appointment this morning and my BP was 104/56. This was the second really low reading, so I guess it's not a fluke. I always prided myself on being the fat person who didn't have high BP, but maybe 120/80 was high for what my body was supposed to be. Now if I could just get my HR during workouts to follow suit!

Also; a little funny - the nurse comes in and says "You've lost 7lbs since you were here two weeks ago. Have you been sick? That's a lot of weight loss!". Nope, just that pesky surgery doing its job.

Summer and events definitely make making good choices a bit harder.

I meal prepped on Sunday before I went to a wedding. I'm glad I did b/c yesterday they had pizza and cake at lunch for work. I indulged this weekend at several events, so I really didn't want to start the week out with pizza and cake. My salad was tasty and didn't make me feel sleepy. So that was good.

I'm still totally dragging -- not enough sleep after the wedding and our AC went out yesterday so sleeping last night was tough. It should be back on tonight, so I'm hoping to catch up on sleep.

Food today:

B - fit frappe & coffee

L - salad w/ steak

S - yogurt w/ berries, protein shake

D - either tacos or leftover thai

S - cottage cheese

E - crossfit

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! The "stress monster" is a little less prevalent today, thank goodness, due to talking with a friend last night and her encouraging deep breathing. It works! :) But since I concentrated so much on that yesterday, I lost out on my water intake past 40 oz and I can relate to your situation, Lesley. Needless to say, I am back on the water wagon today and going to get in 64 plus, no matter what! Support group tonight and looking forward to sharing. This is a tough road, no matter what kind of "easy way out" some folks thing we take by having WLS.

B: Bananas and cream, coffee

L: 2 1/2 oz smoked ham, 1 reduced mozzarella cheese stick, triple zero mixed berry greek yogurt

D: 3 oz mesquite pork loin, 1/3 c 1% cottage cheese, 1/4 c. splenda sweetened strawberries

Water, exercise, vites/supplements: working on it!

Sounds like everyone is pretty busy this week! Sometimes I think it's better for me to be busy, keeps my mind occupied! I am so ready to get back to work June 24th!

I had to be honest with myself and admit that I let sugar creep back into my life. So, I am detoxing off of it again as of today.

B-Hard boiled egg and 2 slices bacon

L-Orgain chocolate shake

S-1/4 cup cottage cheese w/avocado

D-Out to dinner tonight before weekly Maj Jong game..grilled fish??

W&V-going to hi****er goal 96oz today!

E-extra long walk with dog

I hope you all have a great Tuesday!

Admitting something isn't working for you is the first step, right? I'm right there with you!

OY! I don't envy you not being in full control of diet, Cecily. I don't think I could handle that right now. Yesterday I didn't get all the activity I would have liked to have gotten. But once I did my leg workout, it was over. My trainer wanted to switch up and give me something new. It was all body weight activities - no weights. I did squats, lunges, kicks, etc. He had me do one exercise starting on my knees, step on one foot then the other, while staying in a squat, then back down on my knees. Over and over and over again. I did laps around the kitchen island while my salsa chicken was cookin. Ended up with 8777 steps yesterday. Got some make up the rest of the week. I told my trainer one of my old work friends called me skinny. He said, "You're not skinny. You're LEAN." I like that!!!
