  2. This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂

      Your progress with weight loss is awesome and so is your garden! I think you should've became a horticulturist. We've really gotten into gardening this year and it's darn good exercise. Keep up the good work and I'll keep watching. :D

      Ed, thank you for the encouragement! Yes, gardening is fantastic exercise. 😄

    I'm 60. Anyone else over 50 doing RNY?

    I am soooooooo glad to know a different doc is serving you. Best wishes!

    I'm sorry you have to go under the knife again. The bypass will serve you well and be totally worth it. Same surgeon?
  6. I've made sure my video is shorter....this is simply a status update and some NSVs. 🙂 I am going to save a lot of the ancillary talking for my "Can We Talk?" series. By splitting up what I talk about this way, it should keep my videos to about 10 minutes each. Thank you for watching! 🙂

    Hand in there! 30 pounds didn't cut it much for me, either. I am now down 65 lb from date of surgery and am finally coming alive!! 🙂 Be patient with yourself. You will get there!
  8. This is the first in a series of videos I hope to share regarding weight loss issues other than just the physical aspects. In this video, and I am sure in many more, I am discussing Food Addiction, what it can look like, and how you might be able to start recognizing the food addicted part of your brain.

  9. Hi Ed. Today I weigh 201. [emoji4] I have settled into a bit of a routine. About 3-4 days per week I follow this regime and about 3-4 days per week I'm off of it and follow my normal diet, then back on, etc. I'm now maintaining a steady weightloss. The first year after surgery is our golden opportunity for weightloss, no hunger, no cravings. We shouldn't squander it, but use it to our advantage.Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using BariatricPal mobile app

    I'm in despair

    Your stomach is still swollen from the surgery. You're not going to get a lot of things in and if your surgeon had advanced you to puree, then puree it is. However, hasn't your surgeon also explained that it will take you very long to eat right now? This is how you get on what you need, by setting adding 40-60 minutes for a meal and very slowly taking it in. This is very very very very early in your surgery. Be very very very careful and especially be patient. There is no need to cry over anything at this point. Instead, be thrilled you have a new tool the will serve you well so long as you follow your SURGEON's direction and not your friends! Be in daily contact with your surgeon's dietician. This is where your anchor can be found. Not here on Bariatric Pal and NOT your friends. Your anchor is in the program at your surgeon's office.
