I was so excited when I got their email about the enchiladas! If I had a sqaure inch of extra space in my freezer right now, I'd order some.

There are several folks on here who have had conversions, but weekends are on the slow side. Hopefully a few will connect with you tomorrow! I just wanted to welcome you. If you have any questions about the sleeve, fire away!

I'm glad you turned around instead of trying to make it through! Seems wise.

Lance and I went out to see Shape of Water today and it was very enjoyable. Next movie? Star Wars next Sunday. Woo.

QOTD: I did team various sports as a kid due to a combination of enjoyment and parental forcing. I played soccer and tennis, and truly enjoyed both. I had to do two sports in high school, so I did volleyball and tennis. I'd really like to play tennis again, but it requires a person to play with.. well, and to be recovered from surgery. Oh, I also played basketball for one season but that was full of fail because I was the only girl in the entire league. Ugh. And I loved horseback riding.

1: protein shake
2: protein bar at movie
3: leftover sous vide flank steak salad
4: sous vide burger

liquid and vites: on track
exercise: nope, but I made my step goal, lolz. (The Garmin gives me a step goal based on previous step counts, so my goal today was 1860. Heh.)

I care for my mom as well and she will be 73 on January 7th! She is my bestfriend too, which is wonderful since we didn't like each other much when I was younger!

Good morning! We had sun yesterday! It was wonderful, I took Emmy for a walk on a trail that weaved through a bunch of pastures without trees. We drenched ourselves for 1 1/2 hours in the sun. Today it's back to the normal dreary, grey and cold.

QOTD-I was on the track and volleyball team until 10th grade. I ended up being the girl's basketball team "statistician" throughout high school after I started gaining weight.

B-plain greek yogurt with 2tsp SF pudding mix and pumpkin seeds

L-leftover steak from last nights dinner at Applebees

S-Chai tea w/cream & stevia

D-Hamburger and cabbage stir fry, cottage cheese and fruit

E-Hike with my dog

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Topic: Real good foods

I saw a commercial this morning for Real Good Foods Enchiladas. Apparently, they are introducing Pork, Beef, Cheese and Chicken. As I love their pizzas, I can't wait to get my hands on this new product. 4 carbs and 20 grams of protein.

It is exciting when we have more options for food.

Good morning! My life seems to revolve around 4-5 hour naps in the recliner and 15 minute walks around the neighborhood. It's chilly and drizzly here today, but I kind of enjoy the rain.

QOTD: Well, I've been overweight since I was about 9, so I wouldn't say that I was ever athletic. However, I did play softball for two years (9 and 10) and I was in a bowling league until I was about 14. I still love going bowling; I'm going to go as soon as I'm cleared to lift and move that much!

2 oz of water every 15-20 minutes

1.5 oz of yogurt drink every hour

Sugar free popsicle tonight probably.

Tomorrow is day 4 post op and my instructions say I can add in 2 protein shakes a day! Woohoo! I'm feeling kind of tired and I feel like that may be why.

Quick question, can I take a small dose of Miralax this soon after surgery? I haven't had a BM since the day before (so 4 days) and I'm getting uncomfortable. My surgeons out till tomorrow and I'd hate to call the emergency number for something trivial.
