Celebrating Your Birthday Post VSG



Recommended Posts

Today I turned 34! I am six months out and below goal. I completely avoid junk food (other than Pita chips) and that includes all sweets.

So how do I Celebrate? What do you do special for your birthday POST SURGERY?

GO SOMEWHERE AND DO SOMETHING other than just go out to eat or throw a party. Make it an EVENT rather than a meal. If you do go out and have a life partner see if they are willing to share an entree between you as a meal.

And Happy birthday! Congrats on the weight loss.

I don't avoid any foods now that I'm in maintenance. For my birthday this last year, my husband took me to The Melting Pot. I had copious amounts of wine, food, and cheesecake, rice krispy treats and fruit covered in white chocolate LOL. Then I went out dancing and enjoying copious amounts of rum and cokes. . .

I like the idea of doing a special day just for you like a massage or spa day if you're still restricting certain foods.

I party like a rockstar (on occasion) when I'm not pregnant, and that's what I considered normal life post-op.

Thanks Tiffykins for responding...I am very nervous about returning to old habits and so far I have not allowed myself to eat much outside my program restrictions. I know that I need to change the way I eat because I can't continue to lose forever. I told my husband the other day that I have to find that happy place where I can just eat and not stress about if the scale will go up the next day. Are you afraid of regaining weight? I am just very anxious that I will be one of those who lost the weight but then regain it later. I didnt work this hard to lose the weight for just a year or two. I want to stay this size for life. And in the past any time I lost weight I gained it back so maybe I am just going on what I've experienced in the past and I know that this time things are different but I cant wrap my head around it...Does any of that make sense?

I appreciate your words of wisdom Tiffy more than you know.

Blessings
