I am a member of TOPS. Once you reach your goal weight, you can become a KOPS--Take Off Pounds Sensibly/Keep Off Pounds Sensibly. I am now a KOPS. In order to remain a KOPS, you must stay within a 10 lb range--7u lbs under and 3 lbs over, are allowed.

Because of my jaw cancer surgery, the foods that go down best are very moist--preferably a soup or gravy consistency. Love the yogurts, ice creams, and gravy on stuff. However, much of that stuff are calorie nightmares.

Trying very hard to stay within those 10 lbs boundaries. Tough.

    I can feel your pain. I am in a situation where I can't do any more cardio, due to my bunion surgery and I am pretty much tied to my house. I have had to cut my calories and hopefully will not gain any weight during this trial! emoticon

I lost my weight when I had jaw cancer two years ago. Finding the right foods to eat has been a problem, as so many foods don't go down well with so much less saliva. I find myself eating things that go down easily--like ice cream, pie with ice cream and stuff that isn't going to make/keep me healthy.

My goal is to try to figure out more healthy ways that I can get food down!!

Fortunately, drinking enough water hasn't been a problem!! emoticon


The Year I Reach Goal Weight--and Stay There!

Monday, February 05, 2007

I'm an older Mom with lots of kids still at home. I need to be healthy and energetic for them, as well as for me. I've frogged around enough with eating what I want from Thursday afternoon after weigh in at TOPS until about Sunday night. Then, I get "serious", so I can have a good weigh in. Well, I want to stop that cycle, listen to the still small voice of God reminding me, and be more responsible about my health!
