Morning. The kid's holiday concert was cute last night. Today I'm meeting with my group to start our final project. I'm really ready for this class to be over!

QOTD: Do you like to wrap gifts? Are you a neat wrapper? I like to wrap for the first 5 or so gifts and then I get bored. I'm good at it though. My husband, who is good at everything, is not good at wrapping gifts - so of course, I make him help.

10 months post-op/Maintenance/132.2lbs

M1: Coffee, PP, Miralax, HC

M2: Eggs & Cheese


M4: Chuck Eye Steak w/ Cauliflower Rice (didn't end up eating this last night)

M5: Yogurt w/ PB

E: I need to go to the fitness center for a run, I didn't make it yesterday. I've been a slacker.

Good morning!

QOTD: I despise wrapping and I am TERRIBLE at it. Luckily, my younger sister lives with me and she's a wonderful wrapper. I'm pretty sure she could work in giftwrapping, as they always look so fabulous! When I have to wrap something myself, I always use bags and tissue paper!

B:lean shake burn chocolate mocha shake

L: premier protein vanilla shake with 1 packet of decaf coffee and splenda

S: Quest vanilla shake with 1 tablespoon PB2. OR 1 cup of vegan protein broth

Good morning! I've been slacking about OH the past few days. I had an appointment with my surgeon yesterday. He was very pleased with my progress. He said that at the 3-3.5 month mark, most people have lost about 30% of their excess weight. I have lost almost 47%. I can really attribute that to this website. He said that if I want to reach my goal of a normal BMI, I should really double down on my efforts for the next three months. He also encouraged me to do more upper body workouts. He said that the upper body is less efficient than the lower, and so burns more calories. Oh - and I got permission to drink club soda. I tried some last night and it went well.

QOTD - I worked at Bed, Bath and Beyond for a year during college. I got pretty good at wrapping gifts because we had to do so many for weddings. Like you, Erin, when I have a lot to do I get a little sloppy. I don't usually do bows for Christmas presents, because we have to bring a lot of them other places and the bows get crushed. I do top one gift for each person with a homemade ornament. This year it's a painted glass ball with some gold foil on the bottom.

B - coffee, cottage cheese

L - shrimp

S - protein shake

D - sausage, some sort of vegetable

E - kettlebell workout

water and vitamins on track

Good morning everyone. Hubby is not working today so it is a honey-do day. Honey do this, Honey do that.

QOTD: I like to wrap one or two, then I'm done. I'm a perfectionist so it gets tedious after the first few. I leave it to others if I can.

M1: egg and turkey sausage burrito (1/2)

M2: LO Stuffed pepper

M3: Chicken meatball and homemade tomato sauce

M4: Fage, protein powder and SF pistachio pudding

M5: Sous vide beef ribs and a veg

S: Jerky or a protein snack... depends on what of the above gets eaten

E: Cleaning and organizing.

Water and vits on track

I forgot, yesterday, that I had leftover pho. So I had that for lunch instead of quiche. Today I'll finish off the quiche!

I measured myself yesterday out of random curiosity and am 36-30-36. If that's not hourglass, I don't know what is. :D

QOTD: These questions remind me of how much of Christmas is tied up with my dad. I liked to wrap gifts - he taught me how. I am an AMAZING wrapper. Now I'd rather just get gift bags. Too many fresh memories.

1: protein shake
2: quiche
3: not sure since it's a leftover night
4: second protein shake

liquid and vites: on track
exercise: nope
