  1. I've hit the dreaded 9mo wall. I can suddenly eat a whole lot more than I'm used to and I'm losing control of the weight loss. time to reset

      Do you portion your food out? If you weight and portion your food, it shouldn't matter if you can eat more. It helps a lot.

  2. after all that thanksgiving food, I just don't feel ilke eating anything! I'm sure I'm not alone in this.

  3. 104lbs gone in 144 days! I'm pretty proud of myself.

      WOW!! That's awesome!

      that's great!


  4. zooming through sizes of clothes! This is crazy!

  5. So I'm fighting with my brain right now. I really, really need to get rid of my old clothes that don't/won't fit but part of me is still afraid of failing. Last winter's wardrobe was well over 2k and I just can't seem to part with it. Ideas?

      I really struggled with that (still do). I sold a lot of clothes on Poshmark.com and it gave me a lot of joy to get a tiny bit of money for the clothes but also to see that others really liked my "style". I also was able to buy clothes along the way instead of spending full price while dropping sizes so rapidly.

      Take the pressure off yourself -- you don't "really, really need to" get rid of anything. Keep the clothes until the moths get them. Try "I WANT to eliminate these things to make room for new ones that fit." See the difference? Whether you sell, swap, donate or take the better things that aren't beyond altering to a tailor, the money was spent last year and you won't miss it. It's always seemed to me that clinging to too-large clothes is giving one's self permission to regain the weight. You don't want any part of that.

      Try consignment? In the right neighborhood you will find quality goods at reasonable prices. Start with one item you can part with and if you like it try it again.

  7. cleaned the closet again.....more tax write-offs for me!

      Same here - liberating to purge.

      Donating is a good thing, but don't be surprised when you see that used clothing is worth only pennies in deductions.

      we should start a clothes circle


  8. I'm just trying to get an idea of what other RNY'ers are eating right about now. My surgeon advanced my diet very rapidly so I'm technically on "regular food," although I'm really having a hard time with anything solid. I had 1oz of a grilled hamburger last night and about 30min later I'm in excrutiating pain and throwing up foamies. I've tried very thin deli meat and cheese, tuna salad, chicken salad, chili. This happens every. single. time I try to eat anything solid. I chew everything very well and I've learned to not take huge bites anymore. I'm just puzzled. I called the office and they told me to go back to liquids for a while and see if the foamy crap stops. Ov course it does, but I'm at the end of my rope of trying to find something to eat. Hopefully some more 8wk+ people are in the same boat I am.
  9. one month check up is done! He was very pleased with my loss. Looking at a mountain, climbing an ant hill.

    I think I have a date!

    Hard. I'm not hungry but seeing all this food my family can eat and I'm relegated to smushy, mushy stuff is really hard! I never realized how hard this was going to be. I'm down 27lbs. How about you?? Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
  11. I cleaned out my closets today and put all the stuff i don't want to wear (and won't be able to) next winter in the Goodwill pile.

    1. jane13


      that's a NSV in my book. it's a win-win.

    2. Christinamo7


      wonderful feeling isn't it?

    3. 2goldengirl


      Isn't it great? My Goodwill pile grows weekly. I'm a bit sad to say that my favorite pair of work slacks, that I hadn't been able to wear in several years, only made it into the "wear now" rotation for about ten days!

  12. I am not a patient person it seems. I was in a kind of stall for the last 6 days. Now that I can actually eat food, the scale is moving again.

    1. Christinamo7


      it's always a relief when the scales move again.

    2. ProudGrammy


      you are doing great!! 6 days is NOT a stall - OFFICIAL stall is 3+ weeks - stalls will continue periodically- "God Grant Me Patience - Just Hurry Up About It" LOL good luck bud - kathy

  13. down 11lbs sine 4/7! stoked!

  14. Mercy! I am about 36hrs away from surgery time. Getting majorly freaked out and beside myself. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
