  • I had my sleeve procedure 3 weeks ago and I could not be more happy... between the diet changes that started in January, the 10 day liquid only diet, and the 3 weeks post-op I have lost 30lbs of fat off my body! It is still work, and you need to follow what the doctors and nutritionist say... but so far the success has…
  • I am getting my sleeve 3/29... my all liquid diet starts today...
  • Wow... it is amazing to still see this thread running... I was very active in it 7 years ago when I first started here on MFP and it really did help me keep my focus and lose a lot of weight... most of which has decided to return, but I am fighting it back off again!
  • You know that i think you are absolutely amazing! The dedication you show to fitness and good eating is unmatched by anyone else I know. I am very glad that you are my friend! Plus you are pretty easy to look at
  • Pre-jym is my favorite, not only does it give you the B12 and caffeine kick, it has BCAA's and creatine.
  • Maybe it is the other way... I was feeling more energetic then I had in quite a while when I was on my 3rd and 4th weeks of Keto, but I slipped up and have had some carbs slipping in and my fat intake dropped a bit and I have been dragging since. Need to keep the fat burning engine fueled!
  • Total 36 Net 29 Not a bad day food wise, did not get to the gym because I was coaching a lacrosse practice, but I did get a good walk in at lunch time and in practice I was running around at practice. Tonight I am planning to kind of take it easy and I will hit the gym early Saturday morning.
  • Total Carbs 40 Net Carbs 26 Little bit higher on the carbs then I would normally be, but I made some red kohlrabi and black kale in the cast iron skillet on the grill last night... it came out so good. I do not even like kale but it had this great crisp texture. I have been loving my new smoker/grill, using it almost…
  • Total Carbs 26 Net Carbs 19 I had a good day yesterday, I was tempted to skip the gym and actually for all counts in my head I was going to but I had an MFP friend give me an extra push so I went and got my HIIT elliptical session in. Hopefully I see it help out with the results tonight on the scale. Tonight I am lifting…
  • Total 47 Net 24 Those numbers seem high to me, I had a big bowl of sauteed spinach with dinner last night and that counts for 18 Total carbs but only 3 net. Had a good workout last night, little heavier lifts for a couple less reps per set but more sets. Tonight I will get some cardio in, i think the plan is HIIT on the…
  • I did not log my foods over the weekend but I was spot on the whole time... Even yesterday after having a few too many shots of whiskey and my buddy brought out a big hero, I just ate the meat and not the bread.
  • Total 23 Net 12 You can attribute my extra low count to pure laziness last night. I got in from the gym, got the smoker going with some chicken legs in it and just sat down and relaxed. I did not even make a single veggie, even with my basket from the crop share sitting infront of me, dinner was chicken legs... they were…
  • You got it... fitting in just does not work. Well at least not for me. Part of what I like about the Keto plan is it is simple, there are things I just have to say no to. You got this!
  • Stop weighing yourself everyday... pick one day a week and use that to measure yourself. Too many variables go into your weight at any given moment. Trust the process
  • Total 28 Net 21 Well yesterday was my weigh in day, and I am down 4 more pounds this week! It is encouraging to see the weight coming off each week and this was a pretty big week. I really feel like I have gotten into a good groove with the eating now it is all about keeping it going. I did have a good lifting session last…
  • Those are some great points, and when the kids wrestling practice is held at the highschool I would run on the track and run the bleachers. This wresting gym is more or less a garage that they put a bunch of mats on the floor and have a 10x15 room for the parents to huddle into, or a small parking lot that is filled with…
  • Total 24 Net 17 All in all it was a pretty good day food wise. Work was a killer and train delays heading home had me miss my cardio session. Yeah I know it is just an excuse... but I'll get my lifting in tonight before heading to my oldest sons first lacrosse practice with the high school team as an incoming freshman. He…
  • 47 Total Carbs 30 net carbs Was a pretty good day, little higher carb counts than I would normally aim for but I did find a new love for Kohlrabi. I ended up just kind of chunking it and sauteing it, the bulb was so tasty. I hope that I get another one this week with the crop share. Had a good lifting session last night,…
  • Well I did not track over the weekend but I did well. I had let myself enjoy the slightest of slip ups yesterday. I had my boys and a friend out at a fishing show, we stopped at our favorite hot dog stand (Hot Dog Johnnies if you are lucky enough to be Jersey) I got myself two hot dogs and did not eat the buns, got a diet…
  • Ohhhh... Fruit is really a killer, I just avoid it. Although some really good looking strawberries came in my crop share and the little guy was raving about them this morning, so I might break down have one.
  • Yesterday my oldest son had a lacrosse game so I did not have much time after work to eat, so i just had leftover BBQ chicken and by time I was home from the game it was too late for dinner, so I just had some cheese with a drink as i watched TV. Normally my carb count has been closer to 30 because I like to have a big…
  • Total Carbs 14 Net Carbs 3 Had a great day keeping the carbs low, but I need to add some more veggies into the diet. My crop share landed me some swiss chard and Kohlrabi, both which seem to be really low carb and I have basically no idea how to cook. I did find a couple recipes on line, if they come out better than edible…
  • Yesterday was quite the day... I had 27 overall carbs and 19 Net carbs so I will count that as a win. I've been fighting this clogged ear issue for a week and finally went to the dr last night. He put me on a steroid so we will see how weight loss goes this week, I was glad to see that I had dropped 2 more pounds this…
  • I am in!!! Don't want to miss the turn over from the last group!
  • 15 Total carbs yesterday, 14 Net.... Not a bad day at all. Could have added in some veggies with dinner but I just used my new smoker for the first time and I really was ok with just eating the chicken thighs... the kids had pasta salad leftover from a weekend BBQ
  • Well I did not log any food over the weekend, but I avoided every single piece of bread, sugary treat or cold beer that passed infront of my face. I did have quite a bit of food though. It was not really all that hard to do... except at dessert time, I just had a cigar and stayed away from the donuts! I am interested to…
  • I might need to look into your use of Flax seed....
  • 11 pounds sounds like a pretty good month to me! I know I would take it!
  • 34 Total carbs and 19 Net... so pretty good day. Taking tomorrow off for a nice 4 day weekend. BBQ's will be a little tough for me, not the foods but the drinks. Guess im showing up with a bottle of whiskey and a case of diet ginger ale
  • Yesterday I had 33 Total Carbs but only 18 Net carbs. I did get a lifting session in last night and I was happy for it. I weighed in and was only down 1/2 a pound this week, but I am feeling slimmer and better overall. I'm going to keep chugging away at this and hoping that I see a big loss come popping up in a week or…
