5 months out Christmas is interesting



Recommended Posts

Keep nibbling and feel sick/full. Not enjoying all the food. Need to go back to regular meals. Look forward to getting back to normal. Far too many calories consumed in alcohol this past few weeks. Ugh. Lactose intolerant and no breads for me anymore. But 57 lbs down!

I'm also 5 months out, and over the weekend we went grocery shopping for family that came in for Christmas. I realized how much I hate food shopping! Espeicially having to figure out what meals to make for other people! It made me SOO irritated!

As far as food - I've been fine. I don't drinnk alcohol anymore, because I've found that even after a sip or 2 I start feeling it!!

Can't wait to get back to my regular meal and exercise schedule!! Down 70lbs!!

I feel the same, I don't know why food is such an important part of Christmas, I genuinely feel sick and want to get back to normal! 2 months post op, and I just don't get the same satisfaction from food as before! Weird!!!

Merry Christmas xxx

All day I kept thinking how next year will be when I'm 11 months out and hopefully at goal. I wonder how I'll handle it and if I will get grief because I'm not eating much. I am not sharing this surgery with extended family. Hopefully by that time I will have figured out how to handle those types of situations. Thinking of just saying I gave up sugar and carbs and that it's too if of a weakness for me.

I am 7.5 months out. I can't wait until tomorrow - I am going back on Lil Miss Diva's Boot Camp, which is a great way to eat for 5 days. I know it will get me back on track and feeling good! In the past I would have dreaded giving up "treats", now I can't wait to get Christmas out of the way. :)

I am about 5 months out. I have lost 45 pounds total. I feel great and I have not regretted having the surgery one bit. I cook for my husband all the time with no issues. I watch my Protein intake and still occasionally have one shake a day. I continue to follow my doctors orders regarding food intake and exercise. I do not want to go back to old habits. One reason for my having the surgery was to get control of my eating habits which it definitely has. I want to lose about 25 more pounds..I can see that happening within the next few months.

Yes! Ready to get back to normal! Too many slider foods in my house! Sent the last of the fudge out the door with my husband, going to clean out the fridge today and go back to my good eating of protein!! No more Christmas excuses for me! Glad to see I am not the only one who ate, drank and was marry this year!

Another reason to love my sleeve: I actually lost 2 pounds over the long Christmas weekend! And I ate whatever I wanted, just a lot less of it. I'm four months out and am just now adding a bit of carbs to my diet. I actually think that has kick started my loss. I stalled for over two weeks and once I upped the carb intake, it's been a steady loss. I hope everyone had a great holiday and stayed safe!
