My date is June 27th and beyond excited!! I'm working hard on my mental game and really working on my food addiction issues. I have been using Deepak Chopra's Shedding the Weight meditations. I listen to them over and over and journal to help myself with this process.

Is anyone else’s family trying to feed them everything before you start the liquid diet. I have enough of a time controlling my own urges, I don’t need any help! I know they mean well. Just curious if my family is the only weirdos.

@okayestmom I haven't told all of my family, but i feel like they would do this! So far only my mom and brother and sister know outside of my hubby. My hubby on the other hand keeps trying to shovel food down my throat "like eat this before you can't!" I keep telling him I will be able to eat that just a small bite will be the only difference. He keeps saying hes gonna get himself a new fluffy wife that loves food since i wont eat so much with him soon.... lol (we joke a lot his crazyness makes me laugh everyday)

My problem right now is that I e been so busy with house buying ad land preparations that I’ve fallen off the wagon in regards to eating well. During my six months of medical weight loss, I’ve done incredibly well and even lost 39 pounds. I don’t need anyone to shove food down my throat. I’m currently having trouble with eating properly all on my own! 🙁

Yep, this is me. I gained weight after my first appointment back in February (celebrating). I finally got down to my first visit weight and am trying to lose more before the surgery because they say the more you lose before helps you lose after. I get that I cannot clear my kitchen of temptation because I have a thin very active 17 year old boy and a husband who has to eat extra calories due to a mass on his adrenal gland. They literally ordered 3 large pizzas and kept offering me some. I didn’t do it. One piece just turns into 3 and so on. They can have the leftover pizza. I just keep reminding myself that it is the unhealthy mass quantities of food that are causing me to not feel well. Would I continue to take a pill that made me feel good at first and then made me feel sick later? Unfortunately, I believe that is what I have done to myself. It just crept up so slow and like you I was busy and not paying attention.

I just went through the thread and followed all the June surgery people. There were several from Texas like me and several teachers. In am not a teacher, but work with Communities In Schools which also follows the school schedule. My organization does not usually work summer school, but I do because I am in an alternative school that offers summer school. I won't be there this year because of my surgery :(. I am hoping we can encourage and keep each other accountable through this forum, and maybe us Texas folks can meet up next summer in a central location. Enchanted rock in Fredericksburg, the River Walk in San Antonio, 6th Street in Austin, or the trillion of places near Dallas where my daughter is. Heck, maybe we can walk a 5k together, just trying to be optimistic and be with some people that get it. I have attached this video before but I hope you guys enjoy my weight loss fish.

I’m down for that! I live in the College Station area, about 1.5 miles from EVERYWHERE. But I drive all the time and would love to have a goal of a 5 K in a year.

      Creating a small Nov hydration challenge in MFP, details soon...

      I'm going to hit my stall now. I can tell, because 1) almost everybody stalls when they start moving on to real foods, in addition to the liquids, and 2) I'm at 302 pounds, lol, and the scale knows I want to see the 2 in the first digit.
      I'm fine. It's not going to freak me out or really even upset me. Honestly, I could stand the reconfiguration of inches that always comes with a stall, for me.
      I'm posting here in between bites of refried beans, which (knock on wood) seem to be going pretty well for me, so far. I'm so happy. Between ricotta (with a little sauce and a little seasoning) and refried beans (with a very small amount of low-fat cheese melted in), I can live without chewable foods for a pretty long time. (I'm also eating yogurt and ricotta cheese.) I do want to upgrade to the ricotta bake, because it has better protein and might cut down the number of protein shakes I need in a day. It's probably a bit more firm than ricotta alone, so I held off at first, but I think it's time, don't you? Plus, my spouse can put it over pasta and enjoy it with me.
      I'm eating 2.5 ounces of ricotta in a serving and maybe that much in beans? (this is my first attempt, but that's how much I served myself) I can eat 4 ounces of Greek yogurt in half an hour, which feels like a lot before the 2 week anniversary of my surgery. But I still haven't really figured out my body's "full" signal. I felt a little sick and stopped eating, one time, which made me think I'd overdone it. Other times, I just take tiny bites, sometimes a few minutes apart, for half an hour. And then I refrigerate or throw out what's left, because that was the guidance the nutritionists gave me. But other people talk about a sore shoulder or something as their signal, and I haven't found that yet.
      I guess it'll come with time and practice.

        Prediction: ACCURATE! I was up .2 this morning. Here's hoping my thighs are smaller after this stall, so I can finally wear smaller pants. (The waists of pants that "fit" are too loose, but the thighs are still tight. And belts are uncomfortable on my incisions.)

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        Don't talk yourself into a stall. They're common, but not everyone has them early on. I honestly haven't had one yet. I've only had 3 "up" weeks in almost 8 months and none of them was from a stall. (One was from vacation, two were recovering from losing 13 lbs in 10 days because I was prescribed too much diuretic and ended up dehydrated in the er ☹️) You're unique, just let it go.

        It is early for you to recognize a "full" signal. Pretty much all the foods you're eating right now are sliders that just pass through your pouch. Other than the refried beans, most of them won't stay long enough to trigger a "fullness" feeling. Don't worry, it will come. You're doing great!

      3. CrankyMagpie

        If it's a stall, it's only in comparison to the ridiculous speed with which I lost during immediate pre- and post-op. I'm still down like half a pound from when I posted this. (Half a pound in four days is slow for this stage of the journey, but it's still good!)

        Thanks for the reassurance! It's good to be told I'm doing well. ❤️

      4. Orchids&Dragons

        Yeah, we love that non-linear weight loss when we have a 4-pound week. Not so much with a 1/2-pound week. I only weigh twice a week (and only write it down on Saturday) in an attempt to keep the insecurity monster at bay 😉

      211!!! Randomly super excited to have read that on the scale this morning! It almost doesn't feel real!

      Haven't hit a stall but this week with only a 2 lbs loss after hitting the gym for 5 days is really getting to me.

        I had a stall for 2 weeks, lost a couple pounds, then started the gym and now I'm stalled again!

      2. GreenTealael

        Think of your gym time not for weightloss but as preplastic surgery. I promise the more you work out (whether you lose fat or gain muscle through it) the better your skin tone, tightness and elasticity will look in the long run... (Learning that now, too late after taking a break from the gym during a recent very active losing phase, I HAVE TO GO BACK)...

        YOU'RE DOING GREAT!!!

    • GreenTealael

      Alright. No more adulting. Burned my nose, broke my espresso maker (officially), stubbed my toe, and cracked my phone screen all before 8am.
      Going back to bed.

        I'd definitely be done for the day! Back under the covers and Netflix for sure!

        At least you didn't break your nose and burn your espresso maker.
