I've fallen off the wagon.



Recommended Posts

I'm mad. I'm upset. I feel that feeling you feel in your "stomach" when you're a total fatty, and you sit and just eat and eat and afterward you're like, "What'd I just do.. And why". EXCEPT.. I'm on my freaking pre op!!! I guess I'm so upset cause I've been following my preop pretty well, and I've lost 4lbs. In 2 weeks!!! Wth?! Sooooo I said screw it, and ate poptarts, a salad, and a granola bar. All of it. I'm going to be honest with my surgeon tomorrow, and hope he doesn't postpone my surgery. I am scheduled to get sleeved on Monday. Go ahead.. Yell at me.

I truly feel for you ashbhey. I don't know what to say except good luck & hopefully the surgeon won't postpone your surgery. We all deal with things differently so maybe that was your outlet for being upset over not losing as much as you hoped for or just nerves from upcoming surgery. Lord only knows what I'll end up doing! Don't beat yourself up. Just move forward! Chin up!

How did I only lose 4lbs in 10 days.. On liquids? ?? That's so frustrating. I feel like I'm going to go to my preop appt tomorrow and he's not going to believe me that I've stuck to it.. For the most part.

What's done is done. However you really need to focus and do the best you possibly can to reconcile your relationship with food and impulse eating. If you do this pre-op, you will have less problems post op. One of the purposes of the pre-op diet, along with the liver thing, is to help get the mental aspects of this new lifestyle in place. Going off the rails post op could be really problematic and could cause severe complications in your recovery. If possible, you might want to schedule some time with your nutritionist and map out some specifics that will help you along the way. Good luck!

I did awesome on my 2 week pre op but then knowing it was my last full mean for a long long time I went out to Chilies and had way to much to eat. I then went to the Gym to make up for it so it was even. The point is its normal to have slips just fix it when you can and learn from the mistake. I still had my surgery and am doing awesome so far.
