I am starting the cleanse today. I decided that yesterday. I have lost 5 lbs so far from just diet/low carb/moderate carb cycling which I started on Monday. So this weekend I will eat all raw veggies and fruit. I want to do this for my body. Then Sunday will be a protein day...eggs, steak, and yummy chicken. Then back to moderate carb cycling on Monday-Friday. I'm doing well, loads of shopping for Chicago trip. Work is going so well. I absolutely love my job.

Hi Deb! I will definitely post more with pics. I go in for surgery on Tuesday. I'm nervous/excited. I have been working for this since October. That is why I haven't said a whole lot about what has been going on with my weight. Right now; I'm limiting carbs and not drinking alcohol. That is the difficult part on the weekend.

Hi Deb!

I think I will join your support group. I should easily be able to do the hhcg with my lap band...lol

No liquids...just low carb. It's doable...I've been enjoying eggs and bacon every morning with some sushi for lunch and a nice salad with chicken for dinner

3/4/14 marks the date of my lap band surgery. I must say it was a very easy surgery. The worst part was waiting and all the poking and thirst. I took some pictures of me the day of surgery. Wish I'd gotten a body shot, but that is okay. My face is a good way to see how much weight I've gained and lost. I'm really excited now and must say that I am not at all interested in food. I'm on liquids this week and happy

Hi Ladies! Yes, the surgery was that easy. My little three year old has been sick so it's been a little stressful with him being sick and my soreness. I feel like I did a million sit ups and the gas is weird. I have to burp a lot...lol. I am so excited and cannot wait to watch myself literally melt. I'm on full liquids this week. I should have probably taken my weight and measurements before, but I will as soon as the swelling goes down.

Glad you are feeling ok, except the soreness and gas.. All part of the deal I guess. I also can't wait to see you melt!!!

As for posting pictures, if you have them saved to your computer, then you can go down below where it says manage your attachments and upload them from the BROWSE section, then they will be in your post. This is my buddy ADAM LAMBERT.. No that is not me, darn it!

So today I am starving...I go to a message board and i read all about food I cannot have right now. So, I'm looking for good liquid options. I sent my brother to the store for Popsicles, soups, and juices. I hope he gets back soon...lol!

Hi Deb,

Yes, the soup did hit the spot and I finally weighed. I am at 271.6. Yesterday, I had broccoli cheese soup and some potato soup with a fudge Popsicle some juice and water. I am looking forward to the next phase where I can add soft foods. I had a fruit smoothie this morning. It took me almost 2 hours to finish. That I must say is awesome. The fullness I feel after eating small amounts is wonderful. I now understand what it feels like to be comfortably satisfied from food. It's my happy place So, I'm enjoying my smoothies and liquids especially since I may have a shake for supper

That is wonderful Jen!! You being able to find your happy place in fullness so easily. That is the major reason I would have liked to had surgery, but at this point it is not in the cards. I wil live through you though!!

I am so happy for you that you are on the way!!!

I was on liquids for a week. Now I'm on to soft food. Today I had:

Chobani yogurt 130 calories
Grilled Chicken with avocado 300 calories
Grilled burger with light cheese 200 calories
Banana 110 calories

I still feel hungry and cannot wait til I can get my first adjustment. I have to make good choices. I will make good choices.
