  • Lol I was thinking that while reading. Busted. I do have a social worker who helps me coordinate things and like get to the store/appointments and things. Kinda figured she would mention if I was eligible for anything, but ... maybe I should ask... circumstances have changed a lot since I last looked into stuff. I'll look…
  • @avatiach @DancingMoosie @Cheesy567 @littlegreenparrot1 Thank you so much for all the ideas!! Sorry I didn't reply longer/sooner... had a really bad flare and couldn't even text much at all. These are all amazing ideas!! Going to try some soups and purees and things. Also saw a few veg mentioned that I haven't tried!!
  • I make a lot of casseroles and baked pastas, skillet meals and stockpot meals. My 9×13 baking dish is 8 servings. My loaf pan is 4 servings. A 10" skillet meal is usually 4 servings. Sauté pan is 8 servings Anything which can't be divided this way (soups, stews, rice, etc) I go by cups or by weight. For cups, if I use, say…
  • 261.2 ... still within expected fluctuations Met all my goals yesterday, except for the "move more" goal, because of pain day. 7 days without Mtn Dew, 23 days without fast food. Still in pain. Not sure if I can work through this. 270's; 260's; 250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's SW: 273.0…

  • Quick update Extremely bad pain day today. It hurts to type even on my phone. Definitely will not be doing any movement today. I *did* try and push through the pain and make it out of bed and to the living room. I made it! But I am legitimately in tears because it was so hard. So. Done for today. Will update again whenever…
  • 258.6...! See, it balances out, yall! That's an outlier though as I woke up late and therefore weighed myself later in the day. Met all my goals yesterday. Yay! 6 days without Mtn Dew, 22 days without fast food. EXTREMELY bad pain day, started after dinner yesterday and woke up a couple times in the middle of the night in…

  • Oh for sanity's sake. I didn't say there was anything wrong with white bread. I said it's devoid of the nutrients found in whole wheat. It is. I didn't say there's no nutritional benefit in a slice of bread. I said there is no nutritional benefit to choosing it over *whole wheat* ... which my post clearly outlines in…
  • I haven't, but I have it on my short list... I'll move it up! Nope I just like math lol Nah, mine was only long cause math. If iy helped, I'm glad!
  • @KeriA yeah so... here's the thing... I know the math and I know the safety stuff, but knowing doesn't change much. I'm just as likely to slip up and eat too little or too much as anyone else. If you catch me, feel free to yell at me. @justanotherloser007 Literally everything else. I'm decent at most math/science. I'm good…
  • I would love to continue the convo, but you're right, it's...straying lol. I'll shoot you a quick hello message tonight so I remember to message you tomorrow when I can be at my computer and add links properly!
  • Okay. See how everyone else in this thread is remaining cordial even with differences in opinion? Maybe you should glance at that, because your stance comes across as a childish attack on someone who isn't touting your own beliefs. Let's not make this personal. I *much* prefer facts. So... Facts: Wheat has three parts to…
  • Welll.... @AnnPT77 every source I have ever seen has the actual equation for TDEE *is* TDEE = BMR + NEAT +TEF +TEA So if you define TEA as TEA = NEAT + EAT, or... NEAT + ...anything, really, you're accounting for NEAT twice...? Although I understand the terms, I am not really up to speed with my TEA/EAT research, lol Most…
  • @biohazardinc okay so ... math Let's look at why you're getting different answers from different people. As an example, let's say you've put your activity level at "lightly active" and your goal at "lose 1 lb per week". The equations we will be using, the ones the calculators use, are to find your BMR, NEAT, TEF, and TDEE.…
  • 259.4! Up a bit from yesterday and the first, but I was expecting that due to uh... tummy troubles. Still under the 260 I'd projected for the first half of this week! Met all my goals yesterday. Yay! And up to 5 days without mtn dew, and officially 3 weeks (21 days) without fast food today! 270's; 260's; 250’s; 240’s;…

  • Thanks for the support, everyone. No new checkboxes on the chart since last time, but it *is* getting easier to ... idk... start doing the movements each day? If that makes sense. I'm viewing that as progress!!
  • That was very detailed lol, thank you! I'll check it out and use both for awhile to decide if I like it. I like the concept of only verified foods, but I get a lot of barcodes which don't even come up on mfp, so I'm worried how macrofactor would handle that lol
  • Thanks for the further clarification. To clarify even more... MFP doesn't aim to tell you your tdee, but the calculations used in conjunction with your activity and chosen rate of loss to determine your "goal" are rough equivalents of the same formulas used to determine TDEE. The point was that if you choose a higher…
  • Forgive me in advance for being American, please but... 4kg is 8.8 lbs, that's a fair bit of weight!! Over 4 months that's 2.2 lbs per month or about .5 lbs per week... which is normal, healthy weight loss. It's even one of the more recommended settings on this app. I think... it sounds like your sister has bern very lucky…
  • Thanks! Testing to see if I am doing this right: 270's; 260's; 250’s; 240’s; 230’s; 220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180’s; 170's; 160's Mine should look something like this lol. Don't beat yourself up over temporary spikes! You're making amazing progress! Edit: yay it worked!!
  • I wanted to reply separately because math/length... From what I am reading, you've been eating between 1000-1200 calories for almost a year now, and losing anywhere from 4 - 10 lbs per month. Then the last few months that's been fluctuating. I understand the need to lose weight quickly initially, and obviously post-op, you…
  • 258.8 ... still going down! Hit all my daily and stretch goals yesterday except... I went slightly over my "Goal" yesterday but stayed within my range... I am not sure how to claim that as far as succeeding at the daily goal... Mfp would give me an estimate of ~1750 to lose 1 lb per week... but my TDEE is closer to 1950…

  • We need to know your stats and how you're eating to help figure that out! Height/weight/age Are you logging your foods? How are you logging? Opening your diary to public temporarily could help figure it out
  • I think you may be joking, but if not, you're missing the point. Carbs aren't *bad*. The point is to make sure the foods you're eating *with or without carbs* are nutrient dense. Your white bread is lower carb, probably lower calorie, but also practically devoid of nutrients. Whole grain breads use *whole* grains, which…
  • Oh, no worries... I love falling into research rabbit holes, lol, I will do some digging! And thank for the link, I'll go read that one now. If I can burn calories and regain mobility by playing with toys, I'm about to get *fit*. Kidding, ofc, I know it's not quite that simple but what a fun thought!
  • With your stats, depending on age, your BMR would be somewhere between ~ 1370-1557 and your TDEE would be between ~ 1644-1868. You're aiming for 1400 calories, which (depending on age) isn't below your BMR (good) and is below your TDEE (good). Again, depending on age, you should, at just that level of calorie intake, lose…
