I’m a slow learner. I get it. I’m 5 years out, never lost everything I wanted to (solid 30 to go ..). I’ve been counting cals, tracking points.. moderate exercise. I’m much happier after losing 65, and no regain by the grace of god. I have a d

Just curious if anyone has gotten sound guidance on how many calories are really needed for weight loss? I dont trust the online TEE calculators.. I think they're too high. I'm 49/ woman.. peri meni I think.. and I'm 5 years out. I have 40 lbs to lose

HI ALL

Im 5 years out.. 49 y/o female. I think I’m pre menopause… which doesn’t help weight loss. Curious if anyone belongs to WW and is it helping? thanks

hi all.. I fear I’ve wrecked my metabolism from yo yo fad diets since the age of 14.. you name it, I did it. I had sleeve 4 yrs ago.. but never lost everything I wanted to. I’m on ww but also started just simply calorie tracking .. seems I’m main

hi...I’m almost 48/female, sleeved 4 yrs ago. Sadly I never lost all of the weight I wanted. I’m stuck at 228 and really need good advice from anyone who’s broken through something like this. I’m basically sedentary .. although I’ve been walk

I'm considering WW to help with accountability. Anyone else on it? What plan?

I was sleeved 3 yrs ago... but not losing at a rate that I'd like. I pretty much stick to the same diet M-F:

1 shake in am (GNC lean shake with water), salad

Hi all-

I'm 3 years out & struggling with my daily intake of food. I know low carb works best for me. I've joined weigh****chers on & off... I just find it all overwhelming and confusing. Like- why is fruit a "free" food? makes no sen

I'm a 46 y/o female- sleeved 3 yrs ago. Lost a lot- very happy- never made it under 200 though... I'm trying mentally to find the mindset to go full speed back into the dieting. I work f/t m-f and i have at least 40 to go (according to me) to be back i

Hi Friends

First of all- I'm very grateful for the VSG- and I wouldnt redo anything... that said.. while I havent gained (by the grace of god) I havent lost. I'm 46, female, 5'6 and stuck at 227. I cant believe it. I've read so many stories abo

I recently logged my food and am at 1000/1200... and 60 carbs...and havent lost any weight in an embarrassingly long time...

I'm definitely sensitive to carbs but I thought 60 was pretty good! I dont eat bread or pasta (or drink)... i

UGH! I know what I need to do... get back to measuring & weighing... I also need to exercise. I KNOW that I know these things... I need to force myself to actually do them. 61 lbs is embarrassing at 9 months out- I've always been a very slow

So, I'm guessing I've lost at least 1/3rd of my hair volume... its broken and shedding...  its deeply depressing. This started in August... how much longer? Any treatments I should do?

 

I've been foiling my hair since my early 20's...

Sleeved 5/23, down about 45...I know...I'm a SLOW loser! I went from a loose size 22W to a perfect fitting 16W... I'm SO PSYCHED about that! I get lots of compliments, and one girl asked me straight out if I had "the surgery"... I was shocked at first.


ejirish posted a discussion topic 5 years, 10 months ago

Any success stories? I've been getting my hair foiled blond for more years that I care to say - so, I dont know if this is in my head or what


ejirish posted a discussion topic 5 years, 10 months ago

I've lost 23 lbs since 5/23 and thats great- and wonderful- and I dont want to come across like I'm complaining- BUT- I am a little wtf... I've been up and down 6 ounces for two weeks of the month... first I blamed TOM, then I blamed cheese- now I'm ju

Just wanted to check in... can't believe it's been a month already!

 

Things have been OK...figuring out food & fullness has been quite the experience. I ate a scrambled egg and it was a nightmare...but "sunny side up" is fine...

I plan to follow 800 cals a day, 60+ g protein, that said what is a realistic carb goal/maximum? 

 

I have so many questions for the NUT Monday- my whole book points to low fat this/that- part skim- fake eggs- what the heck? It appears

I have another week of full liquid ahead of me- but as I look ahead to puree/soft foods I'm very surprised about how many 'full fat' recipes are out there i.e. like on Pinterest- things like Ricotta bakes using normal Ricotta, mozzarella...and dont get

I was sleeved Monday, and discharged last evening. I had that acid feeling so I took the pepcid that i was prescribed (pill). It went down fine, but then the fireworks started in my gut, and I havent shaken off this weird valcano feeling... every sip,
