My thoughts exactly. When I had my gastro surgery, the doctor had me on a no fiber diet for about six months. Then gradually he allowed me to introduce low fiber foods one at a time. Soft boiled or scrambled eggs were my mainstay. I felt like I had eaten a banquet with just one egg.

To be quite honest, I did not make for a good patient either. First I wanted was out of that hospital. Good report back from check up appt. today. I can go back to water walking & light work hours on monday the 13th! Made my whole day!

I know what you mean. Small portions seem very filling to me too. Doc told me today I could go back to eating a regular diet now. I have been hungry for fruits & veggies so went & picked up some fresh bean sprouts, bok choy, snow peas & fresh pineapple. Figured I would make a nice chicken stir fry sometime soon.

Lost four pounds this week!

I have been going up and down lately. Maybe because I was able to up the exercise. My knees are feeling somewhat better and I can walk pretty well now. I have also been able to ride my bike some. But the big news is...I am down a total of 20 pounds from where I started. Others don't really see a change, but I can feel it! Only 18 more pounds before I am in "one-der land!"

Glad to hear it. Take it slow. You are not Superwoman yet. Introduce foods with skin, one at a time. See how you system handles the skins. Some folks can handle them just fine, some can't. I am glad you can go in the pool again. I know it was something you really enjoyed. Keep us posted. We are all pulling for you.

Thanks PF. I really am on a mission this time, and I hope that what I am doing (life style changes) will stick! Summers are easier for me, because they are much less stressful. For some reason when I get home from work I think I need to eat a whole bag of chips, or a whole box of crackers! I'm thinking if I can keep these changes up that by this time next year I will be feeling really good. My knees will thank me.

Someone told Shrek that Greek Yogurt is the best for protein and weight loss...I wish I liked yogurt.

Keep up the good work chopper. If you feel like a snack, think protein. Not carb. Beef jerkey would be a good choice. Even cheese. Nibble stuff.
