    I feel like a failure

    Hi all. I haven't posted here in a while. I'm sure 17 months out and 120lbs down. I was about 28lbs from goal and then I'm not sure what happened. I feel like I've just stopped caring. I've actually GAINED almost 20lbs. I hate myself and I feel like I've failed. I know I've come actually long way, but I can't help but feel like actually complete failure. How can I kick these carb cravings?

    What kind of success did you have with this 8 hour plan? Did the weight come off quickly?

    I feel like a failure

    No I can't work full time. I have a son in kindergarten and a 2.5 year old. I have to be home for the baby, and be home to put my son on/off the bus. I try to get out during the day, but I'm also in college full time online so I try and squeeze that in during the day between housework and kids. I'd love to do therapy but we don't have insurance, and we can't afford it until after the holidays. The food that tempts me is food for my husband/kids. I'm not sure What's stopping me. Trying to figure it out.

    I feel like a failure

    I'm a stay at home mom so I'm always home. I'm in and out of the fridge all day. Sad part is, I'm not even hungry! And I still have my restriction, but I often push past full. I feel the need go fad diet. I even bought pills! I don't want to do that again. I was down into a size 10. Now, they're tight. I'm so mad. Mentally, I know what to do. I just can't do it.

    Thank you everyone. I wanted to seek therapy but no longer have insurance, that's why I reached out here. I've got to figure something out. It's out of control

    I feel like a failure

    Yes I have all of that. I mentally know what I'm supposed to do, I just dont. I always start the day well, then it goes to crap.
  9. I havent eaten bananas in almost a year. I'm almost 11 months post op a d about 110lbs down with about 40 to go. I stay under 40 carbs per day. It's just not worth it to me.
  10. I've only lost 11 lbs since January and I still have about 50 to go! I eat about 1000-1200 calories per day and work out 5x per week. I slack a lot on my water, but other then that I do everything I'm supposed to! Haven't lost a single pound in almost 6 weeks! Help!
  11. I eat 1000-1300 and my exercise burns 750-900
  12. After exercise I'm usually netting 200-400 calories. Here's a sample menu Breakfast: cottage cheese and a cup of coffee Snack: hard boiled eggs (2) with hot sauce Lunch: salad with cucumber, deli meat and ranch dressing Snack: cheese and a vegetable Dinner: Protein and veggie with a little starch (rice/pasta/potato)

  14. Thank you everyone! Your words mean more than you can imagine!
  15. Almost 10 months out and 102lbs down with about 50 to go. Started the gym about 5 weeks ago and haven't lost a single lb since. I religiously log every day and eat about 1000-1200 calories to day and burning about 800. So I'm netting about 200-400 calories per day. Should I be eating some of those calories back?
  16. No specific routine. I'm a stay at home mom so sometimes I find it very tempting to snack. I do 1 hour zumba class 5 times per week. It's so fun! I eat pretty much everything in moderation. My MFP username is kia923 if you want to add me
  17. Thank you! I'm just under 5'3
  18. JessicaAnn

    Should I be able to eat this much?

    Seems perfect to me. The dreaded 3 weeks stall hits almost everyone. I stalled at week 3 for almost 6 weeks! Then dropped like 10 lbs that following week. Just keep doing what your doing

    Weight Gain

    If there is still restriction then there is no need to revise. 2000+ calories seems like a lot unless your doing some serious bodybuilding. I'm almost a year out and what I've realized is the the sleeve can't fail me, but I can certainly fail my sleeve. Back to basics. Maybe even counseling if you haven't addressed the issues that caused over eating before surgery? Whatever you choose, good luck!

    Just wanted to post some pics :)

    Thank k you! Definitely not like I should. I have two small kids so going to the gym isn't really possible. I walk a lot pushing the double stroller (about 100lbs with the kids in it) and the occasional cardio video.
