Iím not sure on my exact calories. I had a muscle milk shake at 180 calories. Then I had a piece of a sandwich with some oil on it. The sandwich wasnít big but I just wasnít sure on that oil. It was kind of gross so I only ate 2/3 of it. Then I got a sirloin steak and steamed zucchini from Dennyís. According to the nutrition facts everything had 390 calories. Dinner was 6 gold potatoís at 220 calories total. Then I was still hungry and had a Pure Protein shake at 160 calories.

So according to my calculator Iíve had 1,350 but Iím just not sure on that sandwich. I think I can have 1400 calories a day and still lose. So I should be good.

The sandwich must not have had as many calories as I thought because I was 148.6 today. Iím finally getting down again. I think going off my topamax for a week did in fact jumpstart the appetite side effect. Iíve had 710 calories so far today.

Two days ago, when I started the day at 158, I had another crazy eating day. I did cardio for a little over 90 minutes yesterday and then kept pretty close to goal to try to make up for it. This morning I was 159, but I had a lot of sodium yesterday, I will try to stay near goal going forward as I am so close to the top of my range. I will exercise tomorrow morning and weigh next on Friday. I expect some drop from water retention and better behavior.

I weighed myself today thinking I was 147. 6 yesterday and thinking I had only lost 4oz today. Then I remembered yesterday I was actually 148.6 and today I was 147.2. So I actually was down 1.4 pounds from yesterday. I can see why they tell you not to drink weight loss shakes when you really donít have a lot to lose. I know my doctors would be upset to know Iím drinking them in addition to the other stuff I do to lose weight.

I don't know why your doc would be upset if you are getting enough nutrients. The meal replacement shakes and bars are pretty nutrient dense in good proportions. My biggest issue with them is that it isn't sustainable - I can't replace many meals long term with them. They just aren't satisfying. If I lean too heavily on them as a way to keep calories low, I will likely fail. I do use them (usually bars) if I am rushing out the door and won't really have time to stop for a meal or if I didn't bring a lunch and don't have time to go out. Filling in for a meal that I would have skipped if I didn't have a quick choice is a fine use for them IMO.

I try to only eat 1200 calories a day. 160 calories of that is a shake. I am also on topamax as well. I really donít eat a lot most of the time. However, my mom and I go out to lunch every once in awhile and she sees me clean out a buffet or chow down an appetizer, plate of ribs and steak, and a dessert. She knows I donít have an ED or issues with food. However a doctor I only see every 3-6 months might think otherwise. Which is why I just donít mention the weight loss shakes or my eating habits to him.

148 today. Iím not sure what happened. I stuck to 1200 calories yesterday. It was probably the sodium in the soup I had for dinner. Today I had a couple Daveís singles with cheese from Wendyís. I got them just with cheese no mayo or anything. So I think they have 490 calories plain. Iím just going to have a protein shake for dinner and my calories will even out.
