Good morning, Annie. It bums me out that this board is so quiet lately. I think many have jumped over to the RNY board. Anyway... the wind is blowing like crazy today, but it's warm, so it's nice.

QOTD: I tend to paint and use alot of blue at home. I wear everything now - but have always been partial to black. I love to look at blue ocean - my daughter is in Malta and send pictures - A MAZ ING water color!!!

B: egg on 1/2 bagel with bacon and cheese - my husband made it - and now i almost feel sick - blech!

L: idk, the way i feel now, nothing

D: nothing planned, I'm still purging my kids rooms and the attic - so maybe take out to give us time to keep cleaning.

E: Did I mention I'm cleaning? many steps, many stairs, etc.

Topic: RE: 6 years post surgery

Hi Carol,

i just want want to say thanks for your post. I will be 63 Sunday and am waiting for my surgery date. Because of a variety of family issues, this has been almost a year in the making. I have been having doubts lately because of all the delays, thinking maybe I'm not supposed to do this, I'm too old, is it really worth it, etc. Your post is great encouragement to me and it's timing couldn't be better. Congrats on your improved life!

Michelle

Topic: RE: What are you eating today? Tuesday, April 16th!

QOTD: Do you have pets, if so how many? Are they spoiled? Right now we have 2 dogs, and 2 Zebra finches. Our oldest dog right now is a 3 year old Bichon Frise, named Reilly Coyote. The 2 year old dog, is a brown dachshund named Sean Michael. The birds (right now) are Mickey Spillane and Edgar Allan Poe.

The birds are not spoiled lol. I am quite sure the dogs are spoiled. They are affectionate, good natured, and don't know a whole lot of the 5 commands. They know cookie, treat, snack, popcorn, out, down, and I've taughjt them "Where's Jim" so they go look for him when they get too needy :)

Having troubles with food -- not much interest in varity lately, so eating predictable and boring.

B: Premier protein shake w Coffee

L: Lo fat salad with chicken, and dressing.

D: Homemade lite tamale

S: Chobani yogurt

Sugar free pudding sounds good....I forgot about it!

Topic: RE: Weighing/measuring food. Daily protein required

I agree with what has been said

but I would not recommend getting weighed daily maybe 2 days out of the week

protien is important and remember to watch the carbs

Topic: RE: Weighing/measuring food. Daily protein required

For working on regain, the most common recommendations seem to be about 800 calories, 60 - 80g protein (or more), and under 25g carbs. Don't worry too much about fat. Make sure you meet your protein goals, but ultimately it's calories that matter most for weight loss.

I usually weigh food after it's been cooked.
