Good morning! It has cooled down here in Florida. It is about 53 right now with a high of 70 expected today. But the sun will be shining and we have missed yet another storm in Massachusetts (another one due on Monday apparently).

QOTD: What do you think is your best physical feature and which would you most like to change if you could? I've always liked my hair and also like my tummy after a TT (I never had a flat tummy as an adult before). I most hate the wrinkles on my arms because they show in anything short-sleeved but also wish my butt wasn't so wrinkly (but that I can hide). Then there are the bunions on my feet...

1 year, 11 months post-op

B: eggs, cottage cheese and Canadian bacon

L: turkey breast and cheese

D: salmon

S: maybe prosciutto mozzarella stick, maybe Yogurt

Sigh. You posted while I was typing.

Good morning all! I'm glad, in a way, that my ridiculous PT schedule is forcing me to have a schedule that's more in line with the schedule I'd like to maintain all the time :) Today will be an interesting day. I've got PT for my feet this morning and then I've got an orthodontist consult. I've got one crooked tooth that was fixed with braces as a kid, but then a military dentist convinced me to remove my permanent retainer at age 20 instead of leaving it in until age 40, so the tooth went back to being crooked. It bugs me and hurts sometimes, so I'm in the fact-finding process. Aside from those things? Normal stuff. Reading ahead for my classes that start on Monday too.

QOTD: Hm. Best physical feature. I don't know! I like my face in general, I think. I think it's really expressive, but I might be fooling myself :) I'd definitely like to change the aforementioned crooked tooth. And the body parts currently trying to kill me with pain. :P

1: protein shake
2: leftover chicken teriyaki meatballs
3: chicken marsala, egg noodles for the guys

liquid and vites: on track
exercise: PT for feet, PT home exercises

No worries :D It was just amusing since I had been so diligent and refreshed and checked before posting.

Good morning. Liz - I am here in the Massachusetts storm - many without power, but it's pretty. Now, I've had enough and wi**** would stop. I saw on the news possibly another storm on Monday. Ugh

QOTD: I always liked my eyes (green) and passed the gene on to my son who has the exact same eyes. I also have great hair, if I say so myself, lol. I hated my stomach the most - never had a flat stomach, but post TT, I am pretty pleased. I also have fat pockets on the top of my outer thighs, grandma flabby arms, saggy boobs, lol but I can live with these things.

B: scrambled eggs and bacon (no soft boiled eggs)

L: deli ham/cheese

D: going out to a pizza place - could this be a worse choice on CAMAW????????????????????? They have chicken wings on the menu, so I am going to get them and maybe just eat the top of the pizza

E: doubtful, unless i eliptical (unlikely) and too much snow to walk

L/V: always good at wah days

Good morning

Vynasse is a miracle drug, it's helping so much with the binge eating. Had head hunger last night for popcorn but told myself I wasn' hungry had something to drink instead.

QOTD my smile, I always get compliments on it. I hate my stomach especially the pannus area. But I doubt I can afford plastic surgery to correct it..

B ham and cheese omelette and string cheese

L bbq pulled pork

D bbq pulled pork

Have a good day

I won this cup

That's great about the Vyvanse! One of the things I noticed quickly was that I felt full again. I'd lost the ability to "hear" that.

Good morning! I'm eating out twice today, so my food day is up in thr air.

QOTD: I like my face skin and my hands. I don't like the post weight loss extra skin, but will take care of that. As for things I can't change, I wish I had a better profile and a shorter torso.

B - coffee, yogurt, berries, grain free granola

L - probably a poke bowl

D - ?? Not sure where we're going for dinner yet

B: 1/2 cup chicken salad

L: sandwich with deli chicken and pepper jack cheese

D: plan is for baked chicken breast and green beans with a couple pieces of boiled sweet potato.

S: TBD

My best feature.....was always my hair, which was hip length and thick. Now, it's much shorter and graying.

What I would change...everything else! Facial hair runs in our family, so a constant pain to deal with, size 11W feet, huge "apron". Ugh.
