    Please do expand upon it, I can appreciate not wanting to kick other people's sand castles, but the thread was started to get responses from people that are unsatisfied after 6 months or more. Besides, when you do not tell your story, nobody wins, people who read your post are left to assume what they will, and you don't get a real opportunity to express yourself.

    Before, and currently. Still 40lbs to go.
    Think I need to go buy a belt. Haven't been comfortable wearing one in years.

    Actually I've found pre planning your food for the day is the best way to go. Make a daily meal plan & stick to it. Then you are not grabbing stuff because of a craving or hunger which will cause you to eat off plan faster than anything else.

    O.T.R. sleever got a reaction from SpaceDust in My confession. I fell of the wagon   
    Wow, do I really not want to admit this. But, I did it, I had a relapse.
    For a few weeks I was eating candy and ice cream on a daily basis. Somewhere in the area of 2000 calories a day worth of candy bars & ice cream. That's plus my salads and Proteins.
    I'm really ashamed of myself, not because I had relapse, that's just part of life for an addict. We are really good at justifying our addictions and tripping ourselves up. My shame comes from the fact that I let my pride get I the way of my recovery. I should have come here and told my sleeve family when I realized it was a problem. I knew it was a problem less than 1 week into it, but I couldn't bring myself to admitting it to you.
    About a week ago I got on the scale & had gained back 7-8lbs. I was so disappointed in myself. I am back on a very strict diet, let me assure you getting back on track is much harder when you don't have a fresh staple line to scare you into following the rules.
    The total disgust I felt looking at that number on he scale was enough to put me back on the straight and narrow.
    But let me tell you from experience, stay mindful of what you eat. There have always been 2 schools of thought on eating post VSG, the "what's best" & the "what's acceptable". This experience has assured me even more the I belong in the "what's best" crowd. I really need to focus on my health because "acceptable" for me quickly turns into overindulgence.
    I feel I need to apologize to you, my sleeve family for not being open about this when it happened.

    O.T.R. sleever got a reaction from Rox in Sleeve: The UNTOLD Story   
    Most of my problem with American providers is with the attitude of the surgeon & the staff
    In Mexico, any little discomfort is taken seriously, examined, and addressed. Quite the opposite in American hospitals.
    In Mexico they want to identify any possible issue before it becomes a problem, whereas whereas American facilities have repeatedly written off complaints as patients just being whiners.
    And when there is a problem, American doctors first response seems to be to avoid litigation, whereas in Mexico the first response is to serve the patient.
    I don't really blame the surgeons for this as much as I do society. They are practicing medicine in an environment that is continually seeking an opportunity to rake them over the coals. Whereas in Mexico a patients recourse is to ruin the surgeons future career, but it won't be to the financial benefit of the patient.

    VICTORY!!!!! Pre sleeve you wouldn't have even thought about it till after it was already eaten. Then if you were anything like me, you'd get depressed that you screwed up again and rationalized that since you already screwed up you might as well eat another one. Congratulations!!
