  1. Have never regretted having the surgery. Probably one of the best decisions I've ever made.

    Your stall story

    I've been stalled between 149-153 for a little over a month now. I'm really hoping this is not where my body decides to stop losing weight. I'm about 9 months out. I have been more diligent with tracking and have upped my exercise once again in order to break through it. I have faith. Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    I need a f*#+ing drink

    I 'patiently' waited about four months. Finally had a drink and...... it was a terrible idea. Felt terrible. Instant regret. Even now at 9 months out drinking is no longer fun. The buzz comes on quick and leaves quick and you're left feeling sober and sick. Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    The Maintenance Thread

    Sorry to dip in here but I've been feeling incredibly light headed/dizzy lately. I read thinking it had to do with water intake but now I'm thinking it may be carbs. Did your NUT mention what a good carb ratio looks like? Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    I don’t want to eat

    Things get better with time. For quite a few months post op, I just didnt want to eat at all because it was such a process. After about 6 months post op, things started to get better. Still dont get a whole lot of pleasure out eating (which is a good thing. Food should be nourishment, not comfort or happiness) but have now gotten used to it. It just doesn't bother me like it used too. You'll adjust. Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Hunger

    Often stomach acid is mistaken for hunger right after surgery

  10. Gum can allow air into stomach and can also causes a blockage if swallowed. Best to abide by the rules outlines by your doctor, especially for those first couple of post-op months.

    Drinking Post Op

    Yes. Whenever I have a drink, I get buzzed very quickly. The buzz lasts about 15 minutes and then I am sick. Drinkings has totally lost its appeal now.
  12. First week of IF completed, I did... okay. I'm doing 16:8 and it's really easy for me to refrain from eating in the morning but once the evening hits, I'm like...I need food. However, on a positive note I hit a new weight low today Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app
  13. I've decided to jump on the IF bandwagon to try to shed my last 10 pounds. Any advice for how to combat morning exhaustion? Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

  16. Hi all! I am curious as to how many calories everyone is eating/what your macros look like around 7 months out? I am a little over seven months post-op and take in about 1000-1200 calories a day (this a rough estimate). I have been consistently losing weight since surgery/have not gained. I am about 15 pounds away from my goal weight of 140lbs and started close 238 lbs. I was exercising a ton but have decreased a lot about 3 months ago (increased work hours). I feel like I am eating too much given that I am not exercising. However, I am not gaining and continuing to lose, so I am unsure whether this mindset is just my own poor/toxic food mindset creeping back up on me or whether I am actually eating way more than I should be. Around 1000-1200 calories a day, most of my calories come from protein, minimal exercise. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    Calories/macros

    Thank you! Congrats on your weight loss also! My weight loss has definitely slowed down from the beginning but I feel like that is to be expected. I'm not really focused on how fast the weight comes off, more focused on my ability to continue to lose and keep the weight off. I guess I have kept the "I'm continue to lose weight, I must be doing something right" mindset but I'm afraid that mindset is a trap. Lol! Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app
  18. Most pills can be filled as a liquid version that you will take for a bit after surgery. Beware that liquid versions of meds taste disgusting though.
  19. About 6 months out and I'm exhausted all the time. My NUT suggested taking iron every other day even though my levels are fine but the idea of taking another pill is tiring in itself. Anyone solutions that do not involve taking more pills? Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Six months post-op+ : The Sophomores Thread

    Been MIA for awhile but wanted to jump in to say that I totally feel like I eat way more than I probably do! Everyone around me comments that I dont eat and I'm over here thinking that I'm overdoing it all the time. Scale and nutritionist say otherwise though.

    Low Carb Protein Bars

  23. I look in the mirror and dont recognize who I am now-a-days. I know I've lost weight but most times I still feel fat. The body image/body dysmorphia is real. Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app
  24. Never thought I would be the type of person to crave lunch meat in the middle of the night... but I suppose my body is telling me something. Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app
  25. I'm going to a Galentine's party tomorrow and I'm expected to bring something. I looked at the list of what others are bringing...all sweets and alcohol. The theme is pink/love/girls etc. Any suggestions on some healthy VSG-friendly Valentine's day related things I could bring to the party? I am 4 months out and do not eat sugar.
