Are y'all getting on the scale everyday? If so why??? If your on a stall take the batteries out of the scale and throw them across the street. If you keep seeing that stall every morning when you step up on the scale it's going to keep you discouraged. I weighed Sunday for the first time in two week. Keep off the scale!

LMAO...you are so right !!!!!

I agree! I was in my stall and weighing everyday sometimes twice! After reading posts I said goodbye to my scale and now only weigh once a week (that is as long as I can go). First time back on and my weight dropped! The stall is over. Give your brain a break from the scale!!

I agree. I was doing a Bridget Jones myself and when things slowed down I got really down. I made a decision the other day to only weigh in once a week. I have to admit that after years of jumping on the scales before I step in the shower its become a habit and it's really hard not stepping on them. But im staying strong and staying off them. :-)

I'm 3 weeks post-op tomorrow, and I think I'm feeling hunger.....I mean, what hunger is like now. It feels like I have a hole in my middle. Almost feels like I have to burp, but at the same time I feel hollow. Is this hunger? Has anyone else felt like this?

I feel it too. It's not the same feeling that I had before surgery, but my stomach literally hurts if I haven't eaten in more than 3 hours. I could still probably go longer, whereas before surgery anyone in my way would have had to watch out (until I ate something, of course)! It's a strange feeling. I am dealing with a lot of "head" hunger, especially at family get-togethers where all the favorites are. I think it may be time to book an appointment with a psychologist!

I am out a month and I am starting to feel the same way. I am able to eat more so I am feeling hungrier? Is this head hunger? I feel like old habits are starting to inch their way into my head and I don't like it!!! I actually see a therapist twice a week because I WILL NOT go back to who I was before!! I am feeling worried.

I haven't had an issue with good since I started eating until this week. Twice I had to throw up. I'm guessing I either ate too much or too fast. The last few days I haven't been hungry at all. I didn't eat today until 4pm then had a few bites tonight of Jello. The hunger comes and goes.

I have the empty gurgle noise when I feel hungry and once I feel like I have eaten enough I get the hiccups. That is so strange. My eyes are bigger than my stomach, lol. I actually had tacos for dinner last night and I had three bites and was done. Then had three this morning and still had three bites left. I am really seeing what my tummy can hold and it does not seem like much. It is still hard to get so many meals in but really trying hard.

Lol!!! Oh I do not even have a scale in the house. The last time I weighed myself was at my 2 week post op visit and Thursday will be my 6 week post op and I'll be weighed then. My plan is to only weigh myself once a month.

Ramble away' date=' it's interesting stuff. I was sleeved 8/11. I was nil by mouth for 24 hours then on to Water for the next 24 hours before moving on to full liquids. I was so down as I was sooo hungry. But then, 48 hours after surgery I got my period. After I moved on to puree my hunger really settled down. But, that time of the month rolled around and the hunger was back! I have PCOS so the hunger is before, during and for a couple of days after. Im so glad to know i'm not alone in this. And its good to hear what your NUT advised. Isnt it funny how we can eat more without discomfort at 'that' time... Thankfully, with PCOS the less you weigh the milder the symptoms. So I'm hoping that the hunger will decrease in severity as time goes on. What is really bugging me though is this incessant wind! I have never tooted so much and when I eat and drink I gargle like an old drain. When will this stop..... Lol![/quote']

I do pretzel crisps which come flavored and there's 55 calories in 5. I do them with the 2% Cracker Barrel individual cheese bars which are 70 calories. So I'm getting a snack and Protein.< /p>

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
