Well, at 11 months post-op, where I can eat anything and everything, my "secret" is logging my food on MyFitnessPal. I weigh and measure most everything I put in my mouth and log it. While I don't adhere to the low-no-carb-carbs-are-evil-whatever mantra, I limit carbs, but only in the interest of limiting calories and avoiding slider foods. I am a lot more concerned with getting the most nutrition for my calorie buck, and that includes carbs. Tonight we are having burgers, but I will skip the bun. If we have spaghetti, I roast a spaghetti squash as a Pasta substitute. I make healthy choices 90% of the time. I Zumba 3x per week and do C25k 3x per week.

I have had my share of slip ups and stalls. Lately, with Halloween, I have had a hard time resisting candy. The other night at work someone brought a freaking homemade pumpkin roll, complete with cream cheese frosting-filling. I ate a piece. It was awesome. I just didn't let it derail me and I have no regrets about eating it. It had no effect on my weight. I even logged it- all 300 calories. This is how I want to live my life. With moderation. I love my sleeve. It has allowed me to do it. Good luck everyone- you have had the courage to take control of your health with this lifesaving surgery, and that in itself is amazing.

OP.. I can't seem to make the site work for me to search on my own so I will have to ask.. And I apologize if I'm wrong. Are you the one who had all the regrets in the beginning? You've done so well and you look amazing!

Congrats!

Nope, that wasn't me. I have been in love with my sleeve since day 5 post-surgery and most of the pain had gone away. LOL
