Recovering from knee replacement knee. Had a horrific gain after surgery of 10 pounds. Lost it plus 2 now. (3 weeks later with careful eating.)

They may put of surgery die to a cold and a hematoma. I’m in good spirits though.

I am a milk lover as well. I do drink skim, but sometimes i enjoy a glass of ice cold full fat milk.
its an indulgence i allow myself on occasion. I am not sure if it helps or hinders weight loss, but I do mix it with my whey protein mix so that I get my calcium and vitamin d in.

My dairy go to is cheese. I love it. But ,of course with the cholesterol being what it is, cheese is not a good choice at all. Beth, make sure you are still getting all the calcium of milk.

Awesome idea.......
Curious to see the results. Milk doesnt help me loose, mainly because I never stop at 8 oz....

I've realized that I crave far too much dairy. Milk is my number one binge food. Yes, you actually heard me say that right. I would rather have milk than just about anything. I've heard that there is really a thing called milk addiction. It has to do with the milk proteins being somewhat like opiates to some people.

That being said, I decided to switch to unsweetened almond milk for one month and see if just that one change has any impact on my weight. I've heard that milk is good for weight loss. I've heard that it's bad for weight loss. I'm betting I'll find out what's good for my personal journey this way.

I look forward to following you in your diary. Your plan of 2-3lbs per month does sound doable. I have been trying to lose that amount per week and all I'm doing is getting frustrated and feeling guilty.

I decided to restart my diary for those of you who want to see what I'm doing with my getting healthier efforts.

This week, if you read my blogs, you'll see that I decided to shoot for 2-3 pounds a month, around 24-36 pounds a year until I'm happy with my ability level. That is a really doable goal, considering most of us gain 10-20 pounds a year. Not only would we keep the weight off, but we would get thinner and be able to enjoy life without cutting back so drastically that we are miserable.
