  1. Hi.. I'm a little over six months out. I've been on a pretty strict diet over the past month or so after finding out I cant just eat less of all the bad stuff I used to eat and still lose weight.. heh.. but ya.. I had a cup of ice cream tonight.. the first dessert I've had in a decent amount of time. My calorie count for the day with the scoop included is still fairly ok a bit over 1400 for the 2 meals I ate. I'm just wondering how others deal with this kind of stuff. Did I make a huge error? Or is it ok to have a treat once or twice a month? Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Wish you had known before?

    Hmm.. I guess I have a strong stomach in that sense because I haven't really had any issues like that. But maybe that will change in the future. I'm six months and a week post op. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
  6. I found what worked for others didnt usually work for me.. exact food item wise.. figure out what you can live with and start with that. You should have a list from your surgeon.. I think that's basic material we all got. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Wish you had known before?

    Honestly theres nothing that I haven't learned through basic trial and error.. of what works and what doesnt.. but I'm only a week past six months post-OP but ya I've made mistakes with food choices and I've had to deal with the consequences.. noones perfect.

    Any regrets

    No, no regrets I'd do the whole crappy first month over again if I had to. This surgery was the best thing I've ever done for myself. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Protein shakes and bars forever?

    I eat the bars fairly often now as a quick go to when I'm out that I know I can eat and feel good about the choice.. I've tried a few different ones recently.. the best was the quest s'mores bar... that thing was actually pretty tasty.. 21 gm protein 14 gm fiber 190 calories. Pretty good numbers for what I'm trying to achieve. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Choices

  16. One thing I'll say I've found true through that program.. alot less people are staying abstinent than people stay sober/clean through the other fellowships. Food isnt something you can get away from.. it has to be dealt with every day. My guess is 3/4 if not more of the people in that room who are obese/overweight are considering or have considered surgery. I was one. Sorry you had a bad experience but ya as I said a second ago big ups on you being open to trying new things.. I think that's really the key to this.

  19. Find what works for you. Try to make small changes. If all else fails try using this. It's what I do.. gives me a good idea of what and what not to put in my body. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app

  21. They read from a bible at an AA meeting? Are you sure? That's not the AA I know. But ya, I've done OA. it's a good program. Instead of sobriety you have abstinence.. for me it was tough to wrap my head around food being a drug.. but I do know people who've really been helped by it. I'm in a 12 step fellowship and can definitely attest to the benefit of having a spiritual (not religious) backing when dealing with life issues. I'd say give it a shot and see if you like it.

    Truthful Regrets, Anyone?

    No regrets at all. I'm a little over six months out. Have lost 110 lbs since my surgery... but it takes alot of work. I work out daily and try my best to stay away from foods I know are bad. I use an app for Samsung called Samsung health that let's me chart my food and exercise.. which helps. Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
