    Sick of the BS

    @OutsideMatchInside - Where do you live? I'm moving because where I am it's the opposite! XD

    Which Foods Can’t You Eat Now?

    I'm just over 4 months out and I can tolerate everything and I mean everything.:( I was hoping it would be harder to eat than I'm finding it but mostly if I stick to a routine I'm ok.

    Quest Protein Bars?

    Pros - Very portable/durable, high fiber so more filling Cons - Not a huge fan of the taste, haven't found a flavor I'm fond of yet. For taste alone I prefer Pure protein bars which are also significantly cheaper, but they don't have the fiber and they have a melty coating.

    How to forgive someone?

    @Nate74 It is admirable to try to hold on to your marriage, but at some point you have to realize that it takes two to make a marriage. You need to take care of yourself physically, spiritually and emotionally and staying with a person who is unable to love you is not doing that. I stuck with my estranged husband of 18yrs through 4 horrible years of marriage, hoping things would improve and giving my best. It turns out that he had already emotionally moved on and was having an affair for those years. You need to draw healthy boundaries for what you can and can't live with in your marriage. If your wife isn't willing to work with you, you can't fix things by yourself. Open communication is the only hope for this type of thing.

    Stall

    I think I wrote the exact same post as you 2 weeks out. I shed a chunk of weight pretty fast post surgery and then BAM - nothing! I think it took more than 2 more weeks before I started losing again. Two things have helped me deal with this: 1. Stop weighing yourself as much as possible - The more I weigh myself the more frantic and discouraged I get. The focus works better if you just try to put it on building a new, healthy lifestyle instead of looking at the numbers as much. 2. Look at the overall loss - You have lost X amount of weight in Y time period. I'm 3.5 months out and I've lost 33.5lbs in that time. I think there were 3 consecutive weeks where I lost nothing but overall I'm happy with the change. Remember this post and, in a few months when you see some other new sleever posting about their stall make sure to come back and reassure them;)
  6. Online communities attract people who are not afraid to speak their mind. There are also plenty of lurkers who never utter a "peep". You have to develop a tough skin to put yourself out anywhere on the internet - even here. There are also wonderful supportive people who you will click with. Focus on them and don't worry about those who communicate differently than you do. I'm a peep aficionado myself, but unless you ate a carton of them, it's no big. I personally ate a Cadbury egg already and Easter isn't even here :-O
  7. I think that those of us who lost a significant amount of weight prior to surgery and are closer to goal can lose more slowly than those with more to lose or who have been losing for longer. My weight loss is slow and seems to happen in small bursts since my Jan 3 surgery. I'm finding that less weighing myself helps me not fixate on it so much. Keep doing what you need to be doing and you will get there - that's what they tell me!

    Seeking Buddies 5'2" & Under

    I'm totally stalled too and have been for like 6 weeks. I lost 18lbs the first two weeks and then nearly nothing since. I'm doing what I need to do but it's really bumming me out:(

    Looking for January 2017 sleevers

    Still stalled. No movement and I'm starting to lose it. I may wind up as the only person on these boards who says that given the chance they wouldn't do it again:(

    Seeking Buddies 5'2" & Under

    I'm nearly 2 months out and I haven't lost an ounce in the last 4 weeks. I see the doctor tomorrow but I have no idea what's wrong:(

    Looking for January 2017 sleevers

    Ugh - I've been on a month long plateau! I go to the doctor on Wednesday and find out if I should still be throwing up what I eat 2-3x a week and why, if I'm doing what I'm supposed to, I'm not losing any weight. How are you all doing?

    I need help

    Have you tried the what was said above about eating dense protein? It makes sense to me. You are having a tough time but you can do this! I know you can. If you didn't care you wouldn't be here asking for help.

    I need help

    I'm so sorry to hear about your loss! I am no stranger to emotional eating and binging. How do you manage to binge when the pouch doesn't let you eat very much at one time?

    Stall at 2 weeks?

    I'm embracing, but I've been stalled for 2 weeks now and I was only sleeved on 1/3 so this is super frustrating! I am thinking that despite getting my Protein, I'm not getting enough calories and I need to eat more. I have trouble keeping solids down still though and I'm also not meeting my Water goals. I am trying my best but I hate throwing up! I just want to see those darned numbers move so I know all this hard work is paying off! Please, someone tell me where I can pick up some patience!
