There is a lot of judgement going on here. No one knows what a person is going through in their life. Who are we to judge them? I agree it is frustrating to see people seriously fall off the wagon on their food plan. But we are not them. They fight their battles and we fight ours.

It does irk me. But I don't let it bother me. The ones that 3 weeks post op want to eat everything they had before and of course when it fails they blame everyone or everything but themselves. That's the part that irks me. I don't think it's really judging if they put it out there that their wls failed but oh wait they ate a gallon of ice cream and half of that pie just to see if they could.

But I just stop reading those and stick to the success and plastic surgery stories cause that's what I want during this ride. I love waking up and weighing in each morning, and even at only 26 pounds down the joys of shopping! That beats some desire for sugar or sweets that I used to have. Most of us went through too much to even get the surgery, why even want to waste these amazing tools?

Yeah I hate reading the posts regarding cheating. I need more inspiration and motivation. Not if I eat this, or if I eat that. That is literally asking for failure.

And I'm not meaning it to be judgmental, I meaning it because I went through so many hoops to have my surgery, recovery from surgery, loosing weight, and I don't want to go back to be heavy and medicated from obesity.

Stay strong and stay focused.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
