    Just went on a cruise. Besides being a cheap date( really feel it after 2 drinks) I was fine. It was nice to have some drinks again, but I didn't over do it......ok maybe one night when my favorite bartender gave me a 4 finger pour of some amazing scotch. lol buzz goes away very quickly.

    Anyone try hull-less popcorn?

    I like Buddha bowl Himalayan gold popcorn. 3 cups( which is a lot) is 100 calories and 12 grams of carbs. Tastes just like buttery movie popcorn.

    August Sleevers-How are you doing??

    I'm 8-10lbs from my goal weight and stalled out big time. Be stuck here for 2 months. Need to go see my dietitian for some advise. Otherwise I'm very happy with the results.
  4. I'm stalled out big time. I'm almost 9 months post vsg, and been stuck for awhile at 8-10lbs from my goal weight. I'm going to go see my dietitian for help.

    First real foods

    Like others have said some foods are sliders, but dense protein fills me up fast. I’m 4 months post op, and my hunger never really went away. So I try to eat every few hours, but I make sure it health meals or snacks.

    Down 70lbs!

    Yesterday I hit the 70lbs mark at 166lb! I started 12/13/16 on my 6 month diet, and was sleeved 8/10/17. I’m 16lbs from my goal weight. I had to go jeans shopping this week as even my “small” jeans were too big. I was wearing 38 waist last December, and now I just bought 30 waist! Crazy!

    I didn't eat cake!

    Thanks! It's a struggle, but I feel so good when I don't give in to temptation.
  13. I'm 3 months post VSG, and can eat just about everything BUT I don't. The amount I can eat has increased. A month ago I could only eat 2oz,and now I can eat a whole 3.5oz [emoji23]. For me surgery was an extreme step,and I considered it the last. So, I will not go back to old habits. I eat protein first then if I have room veggies. If I need something sweet I have some halo top, but I make sure I stick to one serving. I do get hungry every 3 hours or so, and try to eat 5-6 small meals a day. Before surgery I loved food, and always craved different foods all day. I'd see fast food commercials and want that food. Now I just don't care, and when I see those commercial they almost make me sick. I eat when I'm hungry, and for the nutrients. It was a difficult adjustment, but it's great now! Food is no longer the center piece of my life, and I feel free!

    I didn't eat cake!

    I'm an airline pilot, and we serve fresh baked cookie to our first class passengers. Every flight I smell them, and want one bad. lol. For the last year I've passed every time except one.

    Eating spicy foods

    I’m 3 months out, and eating spicy everything. I want spicy now more than I did before surgery.

    Can't stand the Dodgers ( go Cubs), but you make the Dodgers look good!
  20. Use the 6 month diet to learn how to eat, and make a life style change. You will be happy you did, and it will make surgery way easier. You got this!

    Short term disability

    I received 2 months of California disability for my sleeve. I'm a pilot, and 2 months off was required by the FAA. California didn't question it.
  22. I'm also in Illinois, but have anthem BCBS. They required a 6 month supervised diet for me and my wife. At first I wasn't happy, but it ended up being the best thing ever! The wait sucked, but I had a great weight loss doctor and dietitian. I learned how to eat, and lost 35lbs during those 6 months. It set me up for success post op. I already knew how to eat, and it's been smooth sailing. I'm 3 months post op, and 18lbs from my goal weight.
