Failing and I haven’t even started



Recommended Posts

So I weight myself and have gained about 13lbs since my first doctors appointment on Sept 26. You guys I feel terrible. This week I started a week early on my preop diet to shed weight faster and get used to having liquids in the first few stages after surgery. Did this happen to any of you? I guess I kept telling myself “oh you’re not gonna be able to eat this again for awhile so just eat it now” and it stuck with me since. I feel so bad

I was just like that, I would always say “ there is always tomorrow.” But now I am two weeks out and lost 11 pounds. You got this in you! Make sure you think of the future and what’s in all the processed crap they call food. Good luck!

Thank you! Hopefully after this week I notice a difference. I'm day 3 today on preop diet and feel a lot better.

I had major food funerals during my pre-op phase that consisted of eating my favorite foods "one final time" before saying goodbye.

As a result, I gained a whopping 25 pounds in the 6 months that I waited to have surgery.

It's all Water under the bridge for me. I'm nearly 3 years out, reached my goal weight last year, and have the most self-control I've ever had in my entire life with regards to food.

Good luck to you. :)

I was told to not lose any weight or I wouldn't qualify for insurance. So I have found myself pounding so much crap to "make weight." It was fun for a little while but now I'm just miserable!

13lbs though? I'd feel horrendous. I understand a couple here or there.
You can eat everything you want when your on normal food . I'm 4 months post went out for a chinese yesterday. I'm allowed everything but didn't want to waste room on the noodles and rice so had some squid and prawns was amazing. You need to remember why your doing this.. what is the reason you want to change your life? Don't sabotage yourself and end up losing this amazing opportunity as it's really life changing. You can get back on track. But no more food funerals. I am having the time of my life shrinking for nothing it's effortless right now.

I did the same thing I started eating everything I knew I would not be able to eat freely again as my one meal and still lost 10lbs when I weighed in for surgery Monday. My HW=236, SW=226.1! Don’t beat yourself up and just try to get back on track! By the way surgery went well for me!

Yeah I think my scale is not accurate because I weighted myself again 5 minutes later and it was downby 3-4lbs. Regardless, I should have not allowed myself to gain weight. Thankfully this preop diet has been having me lose so I should be fine. Just need to learn self control before and after surgery.

When is your surgery? Don't feel bad, **** happens. Wake up tomorrow and start fresh, give yourself a game plan that you know works for you. The weight will start to come off, it could also be stress.

It's on the 27th of this month. I've started losing some pounds luckily since starting preop diet this week, but it's crazy how food can take over. Definitely seeing a difference in hunger and how it comes from the head rather than the stomach.

It does. But once you actually have the surgery your whole entire outlook on food will change anf your appetite will go away. It's funny because pre-op everyone dreds the liquid diet but the first few weeks post op, you won't even be thinking about food. It will seem like a chore to eat.

I am in the same boat. I had been taking Belviq and phentermine which stopped working after 6 months. In that time I had lost 38 pounds. When I went for my very first appointment about six months ago, I weighed 207. Today I weigh 225. I feel my weight gain is the result of having to stop the Belviq/phentermine combo so I am now ravenously hungry all the time. Surgery can’t come soon enough. Scheduled for 1/2/18. Good luck to you!
