    Each day is different. One day I feel like I could eat a horse, the next day I have to make myself eat something. Anybody else have these days?

    yes, 3 months post op & I still feel like this at times. But it's more of a swing of, "I ate 900 calories today & feel like I could have eaten 1,500 if I'd allowed myself" vs days of "oh wow, it's 6pm & I've had 250 calories."

    IMHO, Icecream will make you sick! Try to avoid it if at all possible. Speaking from experience.
  16. Thanks
    melvan71 reacted to april042019 in Ice cream   
    I'm not a huge ice cream fan but when I crave it I'll eat some halo top (I always keep some in the freezer). I don't like to restrict myself too much on certain foods because then I'll overeat something else to try to compensate for the disappointment. Lol my logic might be weird but it works for me.

    I don’t know if this will make sense to you but it worked for me.
    I was not eating enough to gain weight on 600 calories a day, that is impossible. There were times I would step on the scale and the number would be a few pounds higher.
    Logically I knew I had not gained weight. I changed my thinking and told myself, “I weigh more today for some unknown reason” I stopped thinking in terms of weight gain it was just fluctuations. I started weighing myself less frequently and only on mornings when I felt “lighter “. It really helped me and kept me sane.
    Best of luck to you!

    3 pounds is probably either Water or lack of bowel movement. Don't fret over it. Just stick with the program.

    A family member had WLS a month and a half ago. He as well as others (me included) stepped on the scale only to find a weight gain. Then when told not to step on the scale every day and weigh only weekly did he find his weight loss to return. In a nutshell, nothing to worry about and if weighing everyday STOP and weigh weekly.
