I am 4.5 years post SLEEEVE. I had lost a total of 90# and felt great. Over the past 1.5 years I had gained half of it back. RIght now I would be happy losing 25#. Part of the reason for the regain was that I wasn't getting enough Synthroid (I have no thyroid) and part is medication and part is I have no OFF button. I can do great all day and between 7-10 PM I can't stop, Another problem is that an hour after I eat, I'm hungry. Yes I am getting enough Protein. I'm sick of regain and I'm sick of never feeling satisfied. Has anyone had experience with this and was able to lose?

I would recommend going back to your post surgical protocol. Hitting your Water, Protein, Vitamins and 10K steps goal. That's what I keep doing, going back to the Stage 3 numbers. I also do a low carb high protein diet and now either do an hour of boot camp a day or get my 10K steps in. 60oz water, 90oz protein, 10K steps, Vitamins. That's what I focus on. I don't' know if this will help but it's the only advise I have.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!! I know you can do this, with commitment to the protocol you were successful before, you will be successful again!!!!!!!

Not having enough thyroid will do this. Make sure you get your meds and regular monitoring. Having your thyroid level out of whack will mess with all your hard work, particularly if your thyroid has been removed. Make it a priority. Being low on thyroid will trigger hunger...which is why your off switch is stuck:( Address the thyroid first.

If you're hungry an hour after you eat...you might be eating too many high glycemic index carbs...like white bread, white rice, refined sugar and flour.

When you eat these delicious little jerks.....they hit your blood stream super fast....and your pancreas compensates by producing a ton of insulin really fast. The insulin balances the sugar and then has some left over...so now your body is going....we have too much insulin...must eat, must find sugar! And you end up hungry again. And around and around you go. It's a very vicious cycle.

Try to watch refined high glycemic carbs to avoid the boomerang hunger:)

I am 3 years out and have regained most of my weight. I had lost 70# and regained 45#. I am so addicted to sugar and am struggling to get back on track. I’m afraid I have stretched my stomach back out. I feel so discouraged!!

Are you hungry or do you have an appetite?

If you never feel satisfied - do you eat the foods you really want to eat or the foods you feel you should eat?

We are 2 peas in the same pod hunny[emoji173]️
It’s hard when we regain. And mentally it’s crushing. My hours are 9-1am where I am the most out of control. I work 3-11 and manage to fool my coworkers with my healthier choices. Most of the time I want what I bring, but when I get home my family is all asleep and I’ve got the reigns. Sad actually [emoji24]
I was getting pissed at the “ do the pouch reset”. Really? To me that was a bunch of BS,,we don’t have a pouch. But, I eat way to fast. Nursing and a 1/2 hour break? Ya right lol so I’ve eaten fast for ever. Two young kids? Ya, I eat at the counter lol. But I tried slowing down, it’s actually working. For some reason my excuses out weigh my wants for weighloss. But I said “ I’ll start with a salad a day Jan 1”. It’s been nice, so I’m hoping it will all fall into place. One day at a time. Keep us posted, I’m sure I’ll be back to post[emoji173]️
Best of luck,
Tracy

      So I had a Pure Protein birthday cake bar for my p.m. snack and it was anything but. yuck. I think the only bar I like is their chocolate salted caramel. Disappointing.
       
      I am drinking the Syntrax Nectar Pink Grapefruit. On a scale of 1 to 5, I'm giving it a 3 to 4 for taste. I think that leaves me with only one shake left and that is the green apple I believe. I will have to decide what I want to order for my final decision. So many flavors though...

      Tired the Syntrax Nectar Lemonade. Meh. It was okay but the foam/froth at the top kind of turned me off but I drank some of it.
      My husband, who will also be having VSG surgery next year, has been going to his nutrition classes so he wasn't home for dinner so i didn't have to worry about what to make him. I made Kraft mac and cheese for my son and well, I took about 5 big tablespoon out of the bowl as he ate his. Yes, I confess, I was doing so well! I didn't beat myself up though. I just know now, I can't be doing that anymore! I did add it to my Bariastic app. as I am tracking everything I eat and drink. Needless to say, those 5 tablespoon took 125 calories that quick!! I thought to myself, was it really worth it?! When I was in the moment, yeah, it was but I then why am I here in the first place?
      After I put my son to bed, I drank the rest of the lemonade. I give it about a 3. I had blended with just water and ice cubes. I'm thinking if ice was in my glass without blending, it probably would have tasted better. Trial by error, I suppose.
      This morning, I had the Syntrax Nectar Twisted Cherry. I blended at work with a banana. I give this one a 3. Kind of reminded me of children's cough syrup. I mean it wasn't horrible but I liked some of the flavors better. I already had a protein bar around 10am but it's already 11:07a.m. and I don't have lunch for another hour. 
      I was going to have my meal for dinner but I think I may just have it for lunch instead. I'm thinking a nice salad with some hard boiled egg for protein. Probably run to my local grocery store and get one from the salad bar they have! Just taking it one day at a time!

      My oldest son Just got home from deployment in the middle east. I missed him and am looking forward to spending some time with him.  He wants to go to Nebraska Furniture (north of us near where his sister lives) to look for a new dining room table for his house.  I will for sure be getting my steps in and my daughter has better furniture taste than I do, so that will help as well.  My stomach feels 100% better knowing he is safe (as long as we avoid I 35 construction haha).

        That's wonderful that your son is getting to come home and I hope you have a wonderful visit. Please thank him for his service and thanks to you for your service as well! I didn't think there was anyway to avoid the I-35 construction, short of growing wings. Good luck with that ;)

       Lunch time was my yummy dinner from last night. I made homemade turkey chili. I know, it's the middle of summer but I wanted something hardy and that was perfect with some sliced avocado & a tad of shredded Mexican cheese. YUM! I found the recipe that was titled "the best turkey chili recipe you will ever eat" and in fact, it was!
      My shake this afternoon is the Syntrax Nectar Kiwi Strawberry with a banana. I brought in my magic bullet blender to work since it's light and portable. I used water this time instead of the almond milk. Sipping it now at my desk, it's pretty good. I'd give this one a 5! The banana takes over and taste just like strawberry banana shake. Yum!
      Not quite sure what I am planning on tonight for dinner but since I had my main meal for lunch, it will consist of a dinner shake and a p.m. snack after (protein based of course- probably 2 hard boiled eggs.
       10 more days until surgery... I really hope my liver is teeny tiny from all of this!
