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>

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.

        I love it! Thanks!
