Are you asking if you're failing already (you have to answer that yourself)? How long did it take you to eat it? Are you eating other slider foods? What surgery did you have? Did you drink with your meal? Was it morning or evening? Was it a full moon?

Seriously...if you want people to take the time to answer a question put more than 5 seconds into a post. That isn't asking too much.

is that normal? I’m scared I might be eating too much

If you are eating more than your plan advised then you are eating too much. If a whole grilled cheese is not on your plan in terms of quantities or food items then you know the answer. You gave us no information on your plan .

How ever.
I am 7 months post and for ME not anyone else a whole grilled sandwich would be a stupid thing for me to do. And I couldn't even do it as it would hurt.

Exactly. We are supposed to answer a question out of thin air.

I ate a whole grilled cheese yesterday. It was terrific. Had some Tomato Soup, too.

Whole wheat bread with reduced fat cheese, and reduced sodium Soup. For like a total of 300 calories. Big whoop.

We're not birds. We do eventually eat again. Sensible, nutritious food.

Oh, and I'm less than four months out...and my doctor and nutritionist are 100% in approval of my lunch.

That said...my doctor and nutritionist wanted me eating 1000-1200 calories a day at 3 weeks...so schools of thought vary. I will say I've always felt like my doc has based his recommendations on empirical evidence supporting long term weight loss...rather than the fastest weight loss possible (though I admit, walking advertisements are a hell of a way to advertise your clinic).

I'm losing weight and doing well.

Horrors...

LOL:)

I can't eat bread (it makes me uncomfortably full), but I don't think you should worry. If it fit into your macros/goals for the day and your plan allows for it, I don't see any harm.

My plan allows a sandwich - I just can't eat them!! LOL! :)

What type of surgery did you have? food volume is a personal thing. How long did it take you to eat it? Did it take two separate time periods to get in? or all at the same time?

  • Do you log and track your food for the whole day?
  • Did the grilled cheese sandwich fit into your nutrition instructions/plan?
  • Did you stay with in your total calories?
  • Did you hit your Protein goal?
  • Did you go over your carbs?

If it fits into your macros and you are still in weight loss mode/ maintaining then congrats!

Instead of a grilled cheese sandwich, refuce the cheese and put deli meat on it for some Protein.< br>

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
