Looking for guidance



Recommended Posts

I am coming up on a year and a half post op. I have lost over 120 lbs but in the last week or two I feel like I’m slipping into old habits. I have gained 6 lbs in the last 2 weeks and I do not want to go back to my old habits. Still exercising 4-5 times a week but eating poorly. I still want to lose another 15-20 lbs any suggestions on how to get back on eating right?

thanks for the help

In my support group we have a program called back to the beginning. Basically you start back at the beginning. You do (I believe) two days liquid diet, then go to soft food, etc, etc. I don't have the information in front of me right now, but if you want I can try to find it when I get home and let you know exactly what it is.

congrats on 120 pounds down! 15 to 20 can be done.

Find that discipline you had in the beginning. Make this your summer challenge.

  • Get rid of the temptation foods. Get them out of the house. (I have my husband hide his treats)
  • Go grocery shopping for some great fresh healthy foods.
  • Have healthy sweet and salty craving options.
  • Log your food. calorie,carbs and Protein goals, hydrate.

Agreed - liquid for 2 days with focus on getting Water and protien. Then move to clean meals with scheduled Snacks. After the huge loss you have the next 15 to 20. Ready set go.

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....

      1 month and 4 days from surgery and not losing. Actually have gained a couple pounds. Can't figure out what I am doing incorrectly. Have an appointment in a couple weeks hopefully she can sort me out. I don't know if I am not eating enough, not drinking enough, not walking enough. I get 60g of protein min a day, most days more. I have lost only 12 pounds since my surgery and I honestly thought I would be further along then this. Feeling regretful the last couple of weeks and I know it's early on but I feel like my honeymoon is being wasted.

      Hey ya'll. I've been trying to get more protein in my diet. I started tracking what I ate this week and I like it so far. It sort of feels like a game. I've also been trying to eat alot slower. That helps.  My coworker who hasn't seen me in a week said I was slimmer. That made me feel good! lol Tomorrow, I have 3 appointments. I have my weight management, my psych and my visit to my primary care. They recently changed my primary care doctor so I'm looking forward to meeting this new person. Tomorrow is a big deal for me. I promised my nutritionist that I'd lose 3 pounds the next time she saw me. (I don't know why I said that) She told me she believed me because of the determination in my voice. idk ya'll. This whole process is scary. I'm scared of starting over. Last month, I weighed 205.5 LETS SEE how much I weigh in at tomorrow. Send positive vibes ❤️
