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

Cheating at this very moment. I have been unable to eat any pureed foods without throwing them back up shortly after. Past two weeks I was getting by on my Protein Drinks that are supposed to supplement me to 60g.

Today I had solid food. I just chewed until it was no longer recognizable as such. So far I haven't lost my meals 😅

Dear BariatricPal, forgive me for I have sinned... I had a bailey's martini today because I just felt I needed it as I have been so stressed lately with calls from my daughter's school about her behaivour (she has autism). It tasted good and it helped. So there. Not sorry.

5 weeks out from sleeve to RNY revision and I ate a mini chocolate chip muffin. I didn’t burst into flames or dump or have any side effects. Kind of wish I did. But that muffin tasted wonderful.

Froufrou,
My daughter deals with a 5 mental illness diagnosed daughter whose been hospitalized 7 times since she was 6 and is now almost 18.
She's a nurse at a adult autism center every day as well and it's not easy at all. She was trying to get through by drinking a couple of shots at night but the problem and anxiety is still there every day. She gave up the shots 4 weeks ago and looks and feels better herself.
You are your child's best advocate. Seeking help is not always easy and since I don't know where you are it's hard to steer you to help but your community should have a autism advisory board. Good luck with your journey and your child.

I hardly drink so I'm good - this was a one off. I have therapy for my 10yr old and have done since before 3yrs old... she has professional advocates and a whole team working around her. It's still just hard some days. But thank you for your words of encouragement - much appreciated xxx

My cheating ways can get me in trouble quickly.

I’m years out. It’s crazy that a few days/weekends in a row of indulging can bring weight gain on fast. Then its painfully sloooooow to come off. I’m maintaining a ten-pound weight gain up and down the scale. This is my cheating life after goal.

I weighed in at my lowest ever this morning, and then proceeded to eat all the sugar in the WORLD. There is none left. I ate it all.

The two events are not actually connected, I’ve been stocking up on sugar all week (but not eating it!) for weird stress-related reasons, but man. Today was not a proud day.

Currently drinking peppermint tea to try and wash it all out. Back to scary turmeric tonic tomorrow AM, which generally prevents me from wanting to eat anything for a good few hours.

💜 Congratulations 💜 & you missed some sugar so it's all good...

I keep buying the biggest watermelons i can find & eventually eating them all (with help 😀 of cource) to test if they will make me dump again or if i can still ride the fruit train without a tix for a while longer until I'm busted...

I confess that I'm on the last week of my pureed diet and I've struggled since day 4 after surgery. I was doing great before surgery and had few issues with pure liquid. I didn't know I was doing it wrong but I was eating some pureed food during the liquid diet post surgery (don't say I can have strained Soup and not inform me that broccoli cheddar soup is a no lol), I was eating applesauce too because I listened to the wrong nurse. Week 3 of pureed diet and I feel like I screw up every single day! I'm only eating 2 times a day because pureed foods aren't very satisfying and when I do eat I have more than 1/3 cup portion that I'm allowed. I strive to do better every day though!

I am 10 months post bypass and have passed my goal so I'm no longer trying to lose. That said, I still eat healthy most of the time. When I run through the drive through for my kids they both know they have to pay the "fry tax". They each give me 3 or 4 of their fries. They find it hilarious. Oh and I have a Hershey kiss after lunch a few times a week. I got down on myself about it once then thought about how I ate before surgery and got over it lol

10 months out - I HATE going out to eat or having to stop for fast food. I try my hardest not to do this mainly for bad decisions. I waste money, waste food, and dont always make the best choices. Being in the south, eating out seems to be the biggest social experience...

If you know where you are going, would it help to look at the menu online before and decide what the best choice is? Almost everywhere has a salad with chicken on top. I do get kind of BORED during long meals, but I eat too fast.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
