Confessional - Lets post our cheats/confessions/etc so others can see that we are all human

So, there I was in Salt Lake City last Friday for my psychology test, third pre-op nutritionist, and psychology interview. (I started the pre, pre-op diet June 29, 2018, and have lost 17.8 pounds so far.) After the interview, I had a ticket to see the comedian, Pablo Francisco, at Wiseguys Comedy club in an SLC suburb. While I was driving from the hospital to the club, I passed several places where I could have eaten but did not stop. At the club, I ordered a buffalo chicken sandwich without the buffalo sauce and no french fries. I planned to just eat the meat and watch the show. When my plate arrived, it had fries and I just unconsciously started eating them. By the time I noticed what I was doing, I had eaten half of them. Well, I stopped and started eating the chicken sandwich, bun and all. In between bites (I was practicing to eat slowly), I would sometimes eat another fry, until they were gone. So, I had the intent of eating just the meat and ended up eating all the fries and bun too.

But wait, there's more...

After leaving the club, I was driving north and stopped at a Del Taco and ordered a spicy chicken burrito, a chicken soft taco, a macho (large) fries, and a bottle of Water. A couple of hours after consuming all of that, I needed to stop for gas and a bathroom break. When I came out of the bathroom, I walked past the donut case and bought two chocolate iced long johns. I also got a chocolate milk. For the rest of the way home, I had intestinal cramps (I'm lactose intolerant) and had to stop a couple of times to "relieve" the gas - I was not sure if they would be dry or wet, so I took no chances.

I got right back on the horse on Saturday morning... B)

And that's what makes this a happy ending. Most of us have the "oh, well, I've already blown it" moment . . . and then proceed to lose our ever-lovin'-minds. Glad you were able to just chalk this up to food funerals and move on!

It’s not post-op but pre-op I went to McDonald’s at least twice right after my weigh ins. On day one of the liquid diet I ate two tacos and some white cheddar popcorn. But no cheating since and down 6 lbs.

Voss is regular in our home and when I can find it- I get Diamond water! He likes Evian too. But yeah anything bottled and weird looking from Whole Foods we have. Lol.

Hahahaha, its more about taste and softeness of the Water for me if that makes sense...and it appears the more expensive the better my sleeve tolerates it !?!?!

its very possible that its the level of minerals in the Water. My surgeon explained that our pouches sometimes don't like the "texture" (whatever that's supposed to mean) to plain Water. If you add something, anything to it, its supposed to help. I can even do a little lemon or lime and it goes down OK.

I gagged the day after my surgery on the thumble of water that they start you out on and I have trouble even now at 11 weeks with plain water. I mostly put in SF flavors and like magic I have no trouble swallowing it! My favorite is AW Root Beer flavoring. It goes down smooth and almost too fast.

Shoot, where do I start! Let’s see, we’ll I’m 2 weeks away from being 5 months post op and I can almost eat about anything now (well, very small portions of anything) but when it comes to carbs, i have no problem putting the hurt on them. I had a small cup of ice cream last night. Within a matter of 4 days, I managed to kill a box of Trader Joe’s Double Ginger Snaps. I don’t drink any carbonated drinks but I do drink sweet tea. I can eat bread...well, a slice but my biggest problem is candy. I love it and struggle sometimes with just saying NO! And yet in spite of all of my sinfulness I’m still losing weight. As of today, I’m weighing in at 249lbs. That’s 67 lbs lost since my surgery. When I started this journey back in July of last year, I was 365lbs. So total, that’s 116 lbs in a year. Not to toot my horn, if it wasn’t for working out 3 days a week (max allowed. family trumps exercise😄) is still be pretty big I imagine. Anyway, it’s gym night so, gotta go!

Yeah it’s makes sense. Not sure if it’s mental for me or what... but I can taste the difference

Life Water and Walmart has it's brand of ph mineral enhanced water that are good.

My cheats - I am a month out and I'm too lazy to eat 3 meals it's too much work. So I eat a Premier Protein shake with coffee added to it for Breakfast and lunch. Then I have done fairly well to eat a decent dinner -- then fourth meal time comes right at bedtime. This is when bets are off. Peanut Butter, semi sweet chocolate chips, pop tarts, chocolate candy. I'm not exceeding 900 cals a day but I'm not losing either. The whole you wont be hungry again is bs. I wish I had the bypass. My binge foods are slider foods.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
