It’s amazing how much animosity there exists on bariatric pal these days. Whatever happened to just being chill? [emoji4] anyway.
Just wanted to update, I am still doing really well.

Welcome back! Good to have you back. I was following your posts pre-surgery and have a new understanding and appreciation for them now that I’m post-op.

Yes. It’s harder to understand post op. It takes being at a certain place to relate I think. ;) o hope you are doing great!

I have rejected dieting because after my weight loss I realized I was just as miserable and unhappy as prior to my weight loss. Living a life centered around food, dieting, weight and body imagine was taking all the joy out of my world. I didn't feel at ease- I felt the same amount of stress and anxiety around food as before weight loss- maybe more So now that I was thin and felt I had more to lose if I regained. Basically I was still stuck in an eating disorder and diet mindset and it was ruining my life.

I feel like this. I am 12 weeks post op (sleeve) I've lost only 28lbs. I'm ALWAYS worried about what to eat, when to eat it, how to eat it etc. It's making me stressed and very unhappy. The worst part is I've barely lost 5 lbs in the last EIGHT weeks. So all the stress and worry isn't even working for me. I'm tired of it.

Thanks everyone. Things have been a bit harder for me lately. I’m struggling with my digestion... I’m not sure if maybe my stricture has come back? And dumping has been worse. I don’t know. I’m making some adjustments to meal size and frequency so we shall see.

I’m still happy I found Intuitive Eating and would never go back to dieting ever but it’s hard to mesh it in with the physical changes I have due to surgery. I just don’t have a normal stomach and never will again.

Yeah, it's kind of hard to adapt sometimes, isn't it? Let's work within the boundaries our bodies set us.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
