3 1/2 years post VSG needing help

Recommended Posts

I am 3 and half years post VSG
Lost 69-75 lbs initially and did not reach my goal.
I really don’t feel like I got the best support from my team.
Long story short I am beginning to feel like a failure. The scales are going the wrong way!!!!!
I have slowly over the past year put on about 15-20 lbs.
I really am looking for any suggestions.
I still have not eaten any bread, or Pasta. Which I feel is pretty good.
I can eat crackers etc. which is my downfall.
I am a carb junkie. I also am a stress eater.

Also there are times when I eat meat rather it be chicken steak or any kind of meat, my stomach feels funny. Does anyone experience difficult with their stomach feeling different.

I just want to get back on track.
Thanks in advance.

I suggest working with a mental health professional. The people on this board can offer you support, but not the kind that a therapist can.

We can tell you what to start over doing, but ultimately YOU have to decide to Do IT. Go back to basics - Protein first, then vegetables, Water, water, water.

Do you journal?

Journal your food intake, weigh or measure your protein and vegetables. Use a free phone app like Baritastic or myfitnesspal, it makes it easier. Eliminate carbs - you said this was your problem - so you know the answer to your own question. Try Quest chips instead of crackers - yes they are pricey but they are 19gr of protein and 4 carbs.

Start walking or get an exercise dvd. Re-commit.

Make an appointment with a dietician and your surgeon's office, don't be embarrassed - it happens, they can help.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        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!!  😈
