    Oct517 got a reaction from Krimsonbutterflies in Costco. Does anyone go there for pre op food?   
    The Premier Protein bars in bulk are the way to go!

    I get hiccups very often now which was never a thing pre-surgery. Its definitely associated with eating and drinking but not necessarily a "you had enough" sign. I think it just has to do with the new layout of the stomach and the way air gets trapped/moves throughout.

    Oct517 got a reaction from Bastian in 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.

    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?

    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.

    LOL yeah, I've been doing a lot of ab exercises to help with my back issues. I almost couldn't keep the grin off my face when I was able to do 3 sets of 10 of incline bench crunches while holding a 25 lb plate. And the fact that I can actually start to feel them is just so damn cool LOL.

    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

    At the end of the day, our outward appearance is just a shell that we use to masquerade the parts of ourselves that actually matter. If you're looking in the mirror and not recognizing yourself, you're looking at the wrong parts.
    Also I'm sure your PCP is correct and that you look great! We tend to be harsher on ourselves.

    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.

    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?
