    Baritastic

    Hi, just started using Baritastic, I'm a little confused. In the weight logbook, what does the "moving average" mean. Is the average that other ppl weigh ? It makes no sense to me. Sent from my SM-G950U1 using BariatricPal mobile app
  2. What type of bras do you get after weight loss? I'm currently a size 34dd (33.5 inch under bust 40 inch bust) I tried many different bras but whenever I bend down I fall out on top. This is extremely annoying especially at work when I keep having to fix myself. Sent from my SM-G950U1 using BariatricPal mobile app

    Greek yogurt

    Anyone out there with a Greek yogurt recipe that doesn't contain fruits? I am extremely picky and rely on certain foods for my Proteins. I usually blend frozen fruits with plain greek yogurt, but lately the fruits give me sugar spikes and makes me hungry. I hate the taste/ texture of yogurt. So I need a low carb replacement for my frozen fruits. Sent from my SM-G950U1 using BariatricPal mobile app
  5. I love blending frozen mangos and strawberries with greek yogurt the problem is it gives me sugar spike and makes me hungry. What other alternatives can use that doesn't have as many sugars. I don't like the texture of yogurt so it needs to be something frozen and with flavor Sent from my SM-G950U1 using BariatricPal mobile app

    Sweetner

    I'm looking to switch to a healthier sweetner. Currently I'm using splenda and equal which I know is pretty unhealthy. I looked into Monk Fruit but it is very expensive. Any other cheaper options out there? Sent from my SM-G950U1 using BariatricPal mobile app

  14. Hey guys today is my 3 year surgeversity and let me tell you it's been a crazy journey with many ups and downs!!! I'm 5'2" I had the sleeve done on aug 16 2017, at age 19. Surgery weight was 275 lbs. At 1 year post op I reached 168 lbs. After that began my struggling I would notice my weight start to go up and I would yoyo diet. I realized that being I was pretty young and naive I never listened to my surgeons instructions and advice. For the last 2 years my weight has been fluctuating between 165 and 185. Typically I'm in the 170's. Although I never even got to a bmi out of obese range when I get to 160's I'm pretty happy. If anyone feels like their surgery isn't a success (which I felt in the past) just look where you came from, yes I'm still obese but I'm 100 pounds lighter! In feb this year I got really sick I was 177 and I went down to 164. I was so excited and really wanted it to stay there and possibly go down even more but then covid hit... I went back up to 178. 3 weeks ago I started feeling really sick again I had no appetite and crazy abdominal pain. I went down to 174 and eventually went to the er they discovered I had a large hemmorogic cyst on my ovary and they couldn't see blood flow to the ovary. I was rushed into emergency surgery. They tried to do it laparoscopic (small incisions and fill with air) but they couldn't so they made a 6 inch incision. Luckily for me the ovary ended up being fine but recovery has been a struggle. I had crazy swelling of 6 inches around my tummy and severe pain and nausea. Luckily at 2 weeks out the swelling has mostly gone down and I currently weigh 171. But I can not for the life of mine eat I'm super nauseous all the time and have terrible stomach cramps. The only things I can tolerate are chips and cookies. I'm really worried that once the nausea goes away I'll be used to eating junk and start the trend of gaining weight again. Also I have no energy because my body isn't getting any nutrients I'm on 6 medication because of surgery! Anybody have any ideas for healthy foods while nauseous? I would really appreciate feedback and advice if anyone went through similar experiences. Sent from my SM-G950U1 using BariatricPal mobile app
  15. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm 2+ yrs PO sleeve My brain sometimes gets into the mode where I "must" eat and I cannot stop. Yesterday I ate like 7 bowls of cereal!!! I typically dont even like cereal but for some reason I just couldn't put down my spoon. While I'm eating I know I'll regret it later but I just can't stop. I'm suffering the consequences of this like crazy. My tummy is going crazy and I'm gaining weight. I dont remember doing this pre op. I just dont understand where this is coming from. I didn't calculate but I'm pretty sure I hit over 3,000 cals yesterday. Sent from my SM-G950U1 using BariatricPal mobile app

    The Maintenance Thread

    Been kinda on and off with tracking it's super tough being in quarantine with 12 ppl even when my eating is not that great I make sure to get my steps in over 13,000 a day as far as the scale goes I'm staying btw 169-171. Every time I promise myself to track it only lasts about a day until I get "mad at the world" I definitely have an emotional eating problem. I'm trying to stay sane and strong hopefully this lockdown will be over soon it's pretty tough here in NYC! P.s. when I get mad I lock myself in the bathroom (only private room in the house, I share my bedroom with 3 ppl) and i blast music and dance that usually calms me down a bit and I burn some calories in the process Sent from my SM-G950U1 using BariatricPal mobile app

    The Maintenance Thread

    Hey how are you all doing. Over the past month during #quarantine my weight has been going up and down like crazy as high as 173 and as low as 164 currently it's back up to 171 . I worked really hard today to stay focused eat healthy and workout. Hopefully I can continue this trend and see the scale go down again. I was so close to reaching a bmi less than 30 so that I am no longer obese I need to be 163. Sent from my SM-G950U1 using BariatricPal mobile app

    5'2"/30 months PO/ CW 169 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Back in action lol. Was in England and Hungary had a grand time. Food and drink was a very big issue I should have planned it out better. I tried to eat as "healthy" as possible but constantly on plane it in car. Also had a hard time finding drinks with Sweetener everything had sugar even water was hard to find not sparkling. At the end of the day I weigh 169. Which is about a 3 pound gain. I'm not too upset about it I'm getting right back on track. P.s. still having some issues with ovarian cyst l. I'm living on pain meds for back pain and hormonal headaches. Got my period after 20 days with last month 25 days previously I was always perfectly regular with 28 day cycles so trying to get to bottom of it. Sent from my SM-G950U1 using BariatricPal mobile app
