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.
Annisa

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.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
