Hi I'm in need of someone with who can help me with accountability . I was sleeve in March 2015. I recently had a binge on potato chips and fell into bad habit of frying food. I'm unable to make monthly support group meeting do to scheduling difficulties . The good news is I'm back on track, brought indoor grill. Looking for variety of Protein Snacks. Do have any suggestions . I also went in to see dietian who gave me a journal to track what I eat. I was not paying attention to portions or calorie counting. I would welcome any suggestions/assistance .

Sexy granny, someone told me to get the app diet coach . It has been very encouraging and helpful to me. It has all sorts of things like an avatar you can dress, help keep track of Water intake, daily diary, emotions, which is my favorite because I'm an emotional eater sometimes. You can set it for reminders also . Hope this is helpful. I had a slow weight loss at last dr. Visit only 9 lbs in 3 mos. But I made some adjustments , increased my excerise but still have difficulty measuring my food intake.

Help!!! I'm over three years post op and the last year I have began struggling severely with my eating and weight. I was down to 165 and I'm not back up to 185. I have no motivation no will power the most unhealthy relationship with food. I eat out of boredom, depression, or for any other reason then get mad at my self for what I've done so then I eat some more. It's a horrible cycle that I keep trying to get off of but I get back on low carb for a few days then I just fall off again. I'm lost and don't know where to start!!

Do you have a dietitian? Back to basics can be as simple as prepping healthy meals in advance and sticking with them versus "dieting" and cutting off all carbs or some other extreme (e.g. liquid diet) change that you struggle to stick with. I find it easier to stick with healthy eating when my food is ready to go.

Hi. My name is Carolyn and I am just starting on this process. I had my consultation this week and I really like my surgeon and staff. Over the next few months I have appointments with the nutritionist, cardiologist, etc. My starting height and weight are very similar to what yours was. I really like reading your advice to others and if you wouldn't mind I would love if you would be my mentor! :)

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
