 So, of course I know stalls are normal, but that doesn't mean I wasn't dismayed when mine hit at 8 weeks. The first week, I just tried to ignore it. But the second week, I decided to look back on ...

I ain't even hungry but I've been snacking today. I can't toast nuts and keep them around the house anymore. The crunchy calls to me. I actually feel kind of yucky.

crysharris wrote Inches lost 8 months, 4 weeks ago

Yet another thing I didn't do, post LapBand, was take my measurements. I find it embarrassing and time consuming, especially since I don't want someone else to do it for me. In keeping with my genu...

crysharris wrote Bye bye balanced meals for now 9 months ago

 I've decided to take a break on attempting to construct balanced meals. I think that's contributing to my anxiety and stress. For the last few days, I've been choosing a protein that I want, eatin...

So, good news! I now weigh less than I did when I graduated from High School in 1989! Can you believe that? I barely can. I've been losing a steady 2lbs/week since my surgery on 11/20. Not as much as some fast losers, but it feels like nothing to sneez

crysharris wrote Hungry shopping 9 months, 1 week ago

So, yesterday, I went to the market to shop for groceries. I woke up late and needed to get there before we went on an outing, so I didn't eat before I left. As I was shopping, I noticed that I was...

crysharris wrote Boxing Day Sad: Poor little Peanut 9 months, 3 weeks ago

So, I had to put my kitten down today. He had FeLV and went from a happy, frolicking, snuggly, and energetic kitten to deathly ill in 10 days. I'm shocked and saddened. My kids are sad. This isn't ...

crysharris posted a discussion topic 9 months, 4 weeks ago

It seems pretty important for me to track everything I eat right now at 4 weeks out. I'm struggling to get enough protein and calories each day. But, after a while, it seems that you know how much you can eat and you're able to get your protein allowan
