Weekend Away Had Me Reverting Back To Old Habbits



Recommended Posts

Ben & Jerry's, crackers, cheese, peanuts, bacon and eggs and worst if all - drinking with meals in restaurants! Oh and lots and lots of wine. Still lost a pound. Feel like crap and really full but find my mind wondering what I can eat. Not hungry at all just mindless habit of hand to mouth. Wish I had a lollipop.

I've been doing the same thing this weekend. I'm only about 6 weeks post op, had my 1 month follow up last week with nurse & NUT. The nutritionist didn't really tell me there was anything I couldn't eat at this point, other then no hard, crunchy taco shells, chips, etc. So, I've been doing things I know I should NOT be doing. Snacking on things here & there in between meals, like crackers, made some banana bread today, tried a little of that, etc. I'm wondering if I'm one of those people I've read about on the boards here that have the "sleeve of steel", where nothing you eat seems to bother your sleeve. While it is nice that I haven't had anything yet that's made me sick, or feel like I'm gonna be sick, I almost wish I would be more bothered so I'd stop doing things I know are bad habits, and just stupid, after everything I've gone through to get to the point I"m at now, and it's only the beginning of my post-op life. So, I totally understand about old habits coming back, guess it's time to just get back on track! ;)

Bkz3 we are going to do this! A slip is only bad if not corrected. Back on the wagon as of now! Also wasn't getting nearly enough Water. You and I have to pick a goal for tomorrow and check in with each other at end of day. Tomorrow my goal is to get 70 grams of Protein. What is yours?

My goal is to stick with my 1200 calorie diet tomorrow. 60 grams of Protein and 64 oz. of fluids. I'm at the high end of my bounce range and want to be back at goal.

OK, jennrus - sounds like a deal! My goal will be to get in my 64oz. of liquid in, and to get more Protein in! (I have been doing terrible at getting in even 50g a day and I need to be at 64 g, minimum). So, back on the wagon, lets check in tomorrow!! :)

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
