I spoke to my doc about those “bathroom issues” recently and she said that was my hungry body refusing to let go of food until it had sucked every last calorie out of it. 😂

HW was 265.... 8 months post op i'm currently 175....teetering in the 170s for about 1-2 weeks now need to get over the hump. My problem-i'm a snacker. I don't choose awful things to snack on but I find myself shoving stuff in not necessarily because I'm hungry. I do switch up my diet instead of the same old meals and i've re-introduced Protein Shakes as an alternative. I do go to the gym 3-4 times a week but also have bathroom issues if anyone whose had sleeve is aware what i'm referring to. One of the unpleasant side effects. I have not gained fortunately but i'm ready to get over the hump.


I had my sleeve in July as well. I don’t have any dumping. Kinda wish I did so when I made poor food choices then I’d see the effects immediately and tend to not do that again.
I actually put collagen in my coffee in the morning to try and keep me regular. I’ve actually had the opposite effect.

Not much change for me. Down about 10lbs in the last month and a halfish. At around 1000 calories a day. 100g Protein or more and 100oz or more of Water daily. Still not working out or walking. Simply have zero motivation to start. I know I will get results and further along the weight loss but just can't find it. Eating well except for a piece of bread here and there. Never any Pasta and rarely any rice. Everything else is protein or veggies. The Protein Shakes still take up two or three meals a day but that's what keeps my protein levels on track. Had the 6 month with the surgeon and he's happy with the results. Wants me to lose another 50ish lbs before he corrects my umbilical hernia and possibly gets rid of some skin fro the belly, I forget what he called it but he also has to correct a muscle just under my sternum that has stretched and he initially thought it could be a second hernia which he said he will also stitch tight back together when he goes in for the hernia.

Yes! I have lost approx. 45lbs. but I have been at a plateau since december. i will be having a follow up with the surgeon for checkup and will ask him what is going on but I have a feeling i'm not getting in enough Protein and haven't been nearly as active as i should be! Are you considering a revision?

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂
