Hunger and stalling

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm about a month and a half out from surgery. I had a DS on 12/14/16 with a SW of 260. I'm currently sitting at 228.

So, generally I feel like I've been successful thus far with my weight loss. However, sometimes I feel like it's very slow. I stalled for about 10 days, and am slowly climbing out of the hole.

I find that I'm having a very hard time controlling cravings (particularly for sugar...) also find that I'm hungry really often some days, and not hungry at all on others.

Does anyone have tips for craving control? Why am I so hungry sometimes, and not others? I expected to never be hungry, but I definitely am.

You are still very early in the process, so don't get too freaked out by your scale. For some individuals it might even be better to throw the scale in the trash. Someone on this website came up with the slogan "Embrace the Stall".

I suspect in the end, you will drop significantly below your goal weight of 180 pounds, maybe down to 140 to 150 pound range. Just adhere to the program guidelines.

I had a sweet tooth prior to surgery and still have one today. But I had also developed Type II Diabetes. So now I satisfy my sweet tooth with artificial sweeteners such as Splenda and no-calorie natural sweeteners such as stevia. Fortunately today many more products are showing up in the grocery stores using these alternative.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
