Six Month Post Op
Don't think I will. I'm doing it for myself for a week (babysteps) just to become more aware of what it is I'm putting into my mouth. It really helps me to understand calories and keep an eye on protein. I'm only 8 months out and am hardly losing so I want to make some changes to my diet.
Whatever works for you, great! That is great that instead of wondering what is going wrong you are taking reins in hand and taking a good look at your eating habits. I've always found that when I stop loosing yanking my carbs down to 100 or under (some recommend 30 or under, but I need them!), fat to 32 or under and pushing protein to 70-120 my body starts loosing again very quickly.

It took a while to work out the right amounts I needed for my body - but everyone is different and playing about will often suddenly shove you out of a plateau. I went two months without loosing a single pound due to dodgy eating and convinced myself I was eating well - when I actually sat back and worked it out - though my calories were ok, most of the stuff I was eating just had no -goodness- to it, and my protein was right down and I started to pick, pick, pick. Need to -stop- the picking in my case, a couple snacks a day are ok, but not every hour, haha.

And generally about the thread - updated yesterday with photos :). Photos from my camera and always wil be, as can't be bothered to whip out the DSLR for every photo!

I saw this thread first last week and showed my husband your transformation. We were both amazed. Not just the weight loss but also the change in style (love the Rockabilly style so much). I am in the pre-op stage, haven't had my intake yet but need to have surgery in order to lose weight to be eligible for IVF. Your 'after' photo is my dream...

I lost track of the thread and wanted to show my mother, so I spent hours going through my browser history trying to find this thread and your photos! haha

Well done!!
