The Gym has been a big one.
Gaming, although this was more a great distraction POST op.
I like Poker... I mean Poke Her... that's a great stress reliever :D

Pretty much anything that will occupy your time and take your mind off your stresses is going to be good.

Right now, because of some crazy hormonal changes due to the fat loss, my body still trying to figure **** out, back issues that I didn't know I had because the fat was masking the issues, work stress, money stress, stress about stress.... it's been rough, I pretty much just work on getting through each minute / hour. Not fun times on this side of the screen.

Unfortunately for me “stress” is what got me in trouble with my weight. I have been a stress eater for the last 5 plus years. I am taking notes as I read this thread since I can not afford to handle stress as I have done in the past. I am hoping once I get enough weight off me so hat I can move again I will likely take up weight lifting or some other physical activity to help burn away stress.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
