    Baby food containers would work well.

    Do I have an eating disorder?

    Update. I was able to get an appointment with one of the therapist that is relatively close to me. It’s not until end of July though. I called the other one to see if they can get me in sooner. Anyone have any good books or other resources I can read In the meantime?
  3. So the psychologist I seen before my surgery didn’t ask any questions about my eating habits and seemed more like a rubber stamp sort of deal. There were four doctors on the list though and I am thinking about seeing one of the others because I am two months out and I am starting to be able to eat more and want to eat more times a day than I am supposed to. I basically always want to eat when I am board and sometimes when I am stressed or anxious. Is this an eating disorder? Can a therapist really help with this. I am still losing weight but I worry as I can eat more and more at a time and once the hunger hormones come back that I may not be in the best place to win this battle. Any advice?

    Congrats on your surgery and your weight loss so far.
  5. Just found new quest peanut butter cups at walmart. It’s not a Reece’s cup but I will definitely be buying again for chocolate cravings.

    Protein taste issues

    I wondered how the calories were so much lower in the powder. Thanks to you and the original poster that brought this up.
  7. I agree with others that it’s probably just fluids. Try to stay off the scale at least until your first post op appointment. Things should balance out by then.
  8. Ha. Sounds like something I would do asking hubby to hide the scale. Lol

    3 Week freakout (post-op)

    This thread is really old but some new folks say they are having similar issues so I will reply. The three week stall is so common. It can honestly happen before or after but usually it’s right around three weeks. If you do a search on this site you will see how often it is talked about. Rest assured. The weight loss will pick back up. Just stick to your plan.
  10. The others have good suggestions but I would add clear protein drink (they aren’t as sweet and can be watered down). Also, I have heard of people that just used ramen seasoning packets and tossed the noodle part.

    Loose skin

    My doctor (well actually the nurse practitioner) said to use cocoa butter every day before and after surgery. The real stuff that you get in a bar. I also put collagen peptides in my yogurt smoothies. The dr says there is no evidence to suggest it works or that it doesn’t so I figure it can’t hurt to try.

    I think you meant to ask flounder that but if so, they have them already peeled at Walmart now I noticed the other day.

    Have you ever tried mixing a bit of PB Fit in with vanilla Greek yogurt and dipping apples in it. Something else to look forward to trying if you like the apples with peanut butter taste.

    If you like ranch dressing you can make ranch dip for veggies with the dry dressing seasoning mix and plain Greek yogurt. Also I mixed PB Fit into vanilla Greek yogurt and dipped apple slices Into it.
  18. Well they say most people meet the love of their life when they aren’t looking. Maybe focus on yourself but leave the option open if you meet the RIGHT guy.chances are if you meet him you will change your mind.

    March surgeries

    I am down 37 pounds overall. 23 since surgery. I am feeling pretty good. Feeling like I have gotten a groove going. I still forget to drink like I should when I am out and about, but I have been setting timers if I know I will be out for a while. it’s a process.
  20. I have only tried Baritastic but it suits my needs.

    I got mine the day after my two week post op appointment. Dr said it was okay. I didn’t have any side effects at all. Everything was fine.
