  1. Yeah I most def am. I use Baritastic app and I usually do really good but today I just couldn’t get the thought of ice cream out of my head. I normally try to ignore it. I never cheated my pre op and my post op until now and I feel guilty. I think im just going to ask my boyfriend to throw it away when I leave to work. 😩☹️ the crazy thing is my stomach didn’t hurt at all and I was hoping it would sadly. I was hoping that I would feel some type of restriction...that’s what scares me the most.
  2. I have some but just decided to eat the sugar free ice cream instead.
  3. I jusg had half a cup of bryers sugar free butter pecan ice cream ☹️ I also had one fry smh I dont know what’s going on with me these past two weeks but I haven’t been super motivated. I’m so scared I’m only 7 weeks post op. I really do want to create bad habits. Please help! 😩😓

    How are the May sleevers doing?

    Thank you, I’m going to try harder. I used to walk a lot at least 3miles a day and now I dont want as much. I believe that also plays a big part. I’m def going to be joining the gym soon to get back on track.

    How are the May sleevers doing?

    I had my sleeve may 29th so far I’m feeling good. I feel like some days I eat too much because I’m trying to get my protein and meet my calories count. I get around 580-700 sometimes 800 and I feel like it’s too much but my dietician wants me around 6-700. I’ve only lost about 13lbs 😔 she said I’m right where i should be but idk. I was told at least 20lbs should be lost. I’m a month post op today and I’m afraid if I continue to eat that many calories my sleeve would fail.

    I hate protein shakes

    Have you tried the premier protein? They’re my favorite and I hate protein shakes! The good thing about the is you could add a shot of decaf coffee and make them into ice coffee it tastes so good!
  8. Never heard of this but, if you’re worried I would just still to eating lean meats and veggies nothing else. Also drink lots of water and sugar free things just to be on the safe side.

    Is Watermelon ok to eat?

    Hello, yes I am 4 weeks out and seen my dietician she recommended for me to start eating fruits. She told me watermelon is a great fruit to start on because it’s really easy to eat and it’s pretty much purée in your mouth. I was so happy to hear because i too love watermelon. I had about 5oz yesterday (about 4-5) pieces and It went down regularly like before the surgery. Enjoy!

    Working out

    Hello, so I had my first post op appointment with my surgeon yesterday. She said my scars healed really good. After surgery I really didn’t have any pain other than gas but that went away pretty quick since I walked a lot. Anyways she approved me for full activity no restrictions. I’m 3 weeks post op and I want to go to the gym but I am a little nervous about maybe hurting myself. I went to reach for something yesterday and felt some pain reaching too high. I’m wondering if I am fully ready or should I just start small? Anyone with advice or things I can do?
  11. Hello, I’m 3 Weeks Post Op today and I was wondering if anyone knows if watermelon is ok to eat? I would really like a small piece I am on puréed stage.
  12. I am so sorry that your husband is not supporting this. It’s unfortunate, maybe he’s scared that you will succeed and he may get insecure with himself. Listen you have one life and one life only. You have to put your health first and do what going to make YOU happy. Everyone is not going to support or even understand. I had to learn that the hard way after canceling my surgery over and over again. I finally said F this I’m tired of going through this because it me waking up every morning hating how I feel, Look etc. it’s my life! Nobody else’s. So I didn’t tell anyone, I mean nobody. I was scared as hell but I am officially 2 weeks and 2 days. I feel great, have no issues thank god. Im just following my surgeons rules. I hope that you do this for yourself because at the end of it all it’s your life. You deserve to make it better. I hope that you go through with it and if he still doesn’t support guess what you have a whole community that does!
