I was 146.2 today. Iím not drinking a lot of liquids. So maybe Iím kind of dehydrated. Iíve had about 840 calories so far today.

Tomorrow, going to the gym early. I am not sure if I will weigh or not Friday morning. I need to be at the surgery center at 6 AM. It will probably be Tuesday before I can get a good weigh in again, with bandages off and able to shower hanging left arm straight down while out of the sling.

Did the gym. Being a little stupid with eating today. I have decided to try to severely limit sugar and pretty much wiped out my office snack stash to get started.

As far as success, my weight and fitness is great right now; best it has been in decades. But enough evidence about too much sugar is really unhealthy, even if you are keeping your weight under control and are not diabetic/pre-diabetic, is piling up that I have become convince I need to quit having nearly so much.

got home from shoulder surgery before lunch. it went well. only the labrum needed stitching, the rotator cuff will rehab okay with intact labrum. some bone spurs were also removed.

i am using sprix, choosing to walk around the opioid mine field. i have pt in 6 days. i should be able to use the hand, sling supported, as soon as the block wears off. after bandage comes off on monday, I can shower and use recumbent.

SPRIX(R) | About SPRIX
strange downside - nasal mist messes with stomach
it is now covered 100% with no copay by nearly all commercial insurance companies.

i could be paddling sooner in april than i thought if rehab goes well.

decided to go very low sugar during shoulder rehab and see how i feel about it in 3 months. no candy snacks. one serving of an offered home made dessert will be an exemption, as will finishing off some protein bars as occasional in a rush going to gym in the morning or forgot my lunch meal substitute. no canned fruit, or just about anything else pre sweetened

I went off track for a couple days. I weighed myself today and I was 151. So thatís 5 pounds in 2 days. Iím not sure how the scale will read in the morning. I had about 490 calories for breakfast. Then I had 3 pieces of fried chicken, and some fries at 11. But then I havenít eaten anything at all since then. So Iím not sure what the scale will read, or the exact calories I ate today.

@Mountaindewed - You need to get a weight trending app. They flatten out the highs and lows and give you a better idea of where you are. Gaining and losing actual body mass is a slow process (ignoring ridiculous scenarios like eating a few pounds of butter cream frosting). Jumping a half pound up in a day is possible at a holiday feast. 5 pounds in 2 days? 17,500 surplus calories? Joey Chestnut consumed over 20,000 in one sitting eating over 70 hot dogs and buns. So over 60 to get 17,500. I doubt you ate the equivalent of 30 hot dogs on top of your normal day's consumption each of the last two days. It's a spike.

Low sugar day made it a lot easier to stay under goal yesterday. I may weigh tomorrow, but will likely wait until Tuesday or Wednesday.

Thanks UpDownAround.

I was 149 today. I ate lunch around noon. I had gone about 24 hours since my last meal, but I was feeling fine. I had about 775 calories for lunch. Dinner is going to be chicken in a cream of broccoli soup and artichoke lemon sauce. The chicken has 110 calories for 4oz. Iím not sure on the sauce. I was just going to have 2/3 cup of it. Iíll probably be low. I always am on the homemade stuff. Which is why I donít like eating it. Itís so hard for me to calculate.

My calculator says Iíve had 1,185 calories. For dinner I had 1/2 cup of sauce which I think was about 100 calories. I didnít finish the sauce part. I also had some diet juice which was 5 calories per 8oz but I didnít measure it. I calculated 60 calories in juice. I may be wrong. It may be closer to 1200, or it may be less than the 1,185 calories.
