    Thank you!
    I'm trying to get back to my pre-covid food habits. My siblings are attending college from home so the pantry is full on unhealthy Snacks 🤢 and I find it hard not to give in sometimes. I think I'm gonna have to give in and buy my own snacks from the bariaticpal store to sooth the cravings 😭

    I love yogurt and have tried close to every brand out there. My favorite is Two Good yogurt. They are only 80 calories per cup, 2 grams of sugar, and 12 grams of Protein so they are very filling. They are not as sweet as Chobani and not as bitter as plain non-fat Greek yogurt. Its a nice in-between. I highly recommend you check it out.

    I didn’t gain any weight during our shut down & even though things are pretty much back to usual here, my work hasn’t reopened yet (so I’ve been at home since March). I’m not a gym person but I have a treadmill - not that I use it often Lol. I’ve just been very routine in what I eat & when I eat. The routine makes me feel in control which can be soothing in stressful times. Plus I didn’t buy any ‘treat’ foods so I couldn’t be tempted to eat them. Yep, I’ve been pretty strict & I admit it is easier to do because I live alone but I know my weaknesses. Go back to your pre covid diet. Take it day by day. Find ways to be active like go for a walk, use stairs, etc.
    You’ll get back on track. You can do this.

    My weight tends to normally fluctuate +/- 5-10 lbs. I usually have to regiment myself by eating boring foods (protein 🤣) if I'm up and party foods if I'm down.
    One thing I have not done/will not do is try to out exercise my fun food phase, I just cut down on them since I know they are the culprit.
    But also lots of people have gained from stress, and this time has been very stressful.
    Good Luck ♥️

    I didn't gain any, but I think what saved my butt is that I bought a used bike back in May (since I wasn't able to go to the gym anymore) and have been biking 4-5 days a week. Otherwise, I'm sure I would have gained a few pounds.
    I'm going to have to do something once it gets too cold to bike, though. Probably cut a couple hundred calories a day, which I'm going to hate, but...not sure what else I can do with limited exercise options.

    I have seen it in Walmart and wondered about it. From what I remember, it was kinda pricey for yogurt, but since there's no way I'd be able to eat the entire container in one sitting post-op, it may be worth it. I will buy one as a sample next time I go to the store. Thanks!

    Sometimes I’ll mix in-
    Peanut Butter powder
    vanilla Protein Powder
    matcha powder
    frozen fruit
    Fiber one cereal
    couple tbsp granola
    sunflower seeds
    a pinch of Monkfruit sweetener
    It really all depends on how I’m feeling that day.

    Did you guys gain weight during quarantine? If so, what are you doing to lose it?
    Pre-quarantine my weight was at 153 lbs. I was at the weight for about a year and was having a really hard time bringing it down! During the 6 months of quarantine, I gained about 7 lbs since the gyms were closed and I'm really bad at working out from home.
    Since I was already having a hard time dropping from 153 lbs, I'm afraid I'm going to get stuck at 160 lbs. I know it doesn't sound so bad, but I am 5'1 so the extra 7 lbs really show! When I gain weight, it's evident in my arms and my chest area, so although my jeans fit just fine, my Medium shirts are too tight!!!

    hi everyone this is my first post- im scheduled for my surgery january 18th 2018-- excited but nervous-- things that are left for me to take care of is-- 1-- appt w. my primary doc to get letter of medical necessity 2.-- appt w. a psychiatrist for my psycho. evalu 3. -- pre op class 4.-- then surgery ----
    this whole process has actually got pretty fast for me- i started to look into to this end of Oct 2017 called bariatric surg. office on nov 3rd and had my first appt on nov . 30th.. since then i had a transnasal endoscopy which turned out good . no issues --the amt of weight i would like to lose is --80- 90 lbs--
    the main reason why i finally came to the decision to look into wls is-- i couldnt take any longer-- like most of us i have tried pretty much every diet out there and like my surgeon had stated to me i didnt fail the diets they all failed me and now its time to get this right---
    i do have a few worries or concerns --
    1- one of the reasons on why im in this boat is i like enjoy food and it enjoys me it scares me - i know once im down the road 6 +mths out i will be able to eat what i pretty much want its just the amt of it
    2.- will i be able to do this-- ? thats one of my fears im going to go through all of this and not keep the weight off--
    3. - i feel ashamed im doing this -- which i know is completely silly of me -
    4.- but im not telling anyone in my life really ( not yet atleast ) - the only two people in my life at this time that knows is my husband and my supervisor--
    ok--well-- i wish everyone wonderful surgeries to come and happy goals to be reached!!
    good luck to everyone!!
