I have no shame. I am in the midst of my food funeral. If only I were more creative. The best thing I've eaten so far is fruit Roll-Ups (my favorite food) and Cup of Noodles. Oh, and lots of beer. Like I said, I have no shame.

LOL mine is vodka!

Headaches could be normal (no sugar, no caffeine- or reduced amounts) but dizzy seems odd. Are you diabetic? Are you getting enough carbs and calories to keep yourself going? I know it's easy to just want nothing when you can only have liquids but be sure you are getting the right nutrients :)

I am pre-diabetic... Didn't think of that.

I’d do whatever you can stick to. If shakes only makes you feel like you’re going to crack, why not do Breakfast shake, lunch shake, snack shake and healthy dinner. You’ll still lose but it may be easier to stick with.

Good luck, you can do it!


Surgery Date : TBD in Jan 2018

How is everyone doing? I am finding it kinda hard. To get approved I worked on it,and lost 12 lbs. When I got approved I think the fat kid in me came out. I feel like I am bingeing, i am Not though. Just feel guilty because I am having what I have heard them called food funerals. Anyone else having the same problem.
Feeling off track.

I totally feel like I have gone off the rails! Ever since I got out of the hospital I have been so happy to be able to eat and swallow that I’ve just eaten or drink anything that I wanted. I know when I go see the doc on the 13th he is going to be really upset with the fact that I have gained 5 pounds. I finally ordered my Protein Shakes and am getting myself mentally and physically prepared this week because January 23 I’ll be here before I know it. I have definitely had quite a few food funerals. It’s just an excuse and it really doesn’t satisfy that mental hunger. That’s what I need to work on

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...

      I'm 13 years out from having weight loss surgery. I would have to say it was the best choice I have ever made. I have been successful BUT now I'm feeling like I'm sliding back and getting comfortable with old eating habits. I absolutely do not want to ever go back to where I came from. I'm just needing support and some pointers to get me focused again. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
