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



Recommended Posts

Just today I had a couple of small spoonfuls of fried rice with my Black Pepper chicken and Beef and Broccoli from Panda Express. It was awesome! Turned that plate of food into 3 meals. I also have started making my kids' favorite again, chicken alfredo penne Pasta, in which I also partake. The pasta is high Protein so I kind of justify it that way. I don't eat nearly as much as I used to however. Smaller portions. :)

I can’t drink the protein; I become nauseated and gag. May 15th was my surgical date, but I’m not showing any Protein deficiencies???

There is no test for Protein deficiencies. But the long term effects of not getting enough protein are no joke.

Tons of ways to get protein in, poke around other threads or start a new topic :)

Wow, y'alls confessions are so tame :D (I'm in TX at the moment, so I can say y'all :lol:)

Yesterday I had shake Shack, Taco Bell and an 18 course dinner. No confessions here because I hit my Protein goal and was under 600 calories!

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.

This might be why, when you consume foods like this and then go to bed your body can't burn them off... try switching your cheat meal to the middle of the day to see if that helps any.

I definitely cheated pre-op... post op I don't consider what I'm eating as cheat meals. I stay within my calorie limit and eat very little of it. I LOVE fries so I might pick at them here and there, I've had chips but never a whole bag like before. I can't drink pop, the carbonation hurts my stomach. Otherwise I'd love a glass! Probably a good thing tho. lol I'm down 78lbs in 3.5 months.

LOVE this thread. Doesn't make me feel bad for having those 2 chicken nuggets last night after staying strict with liquid all day. Back on the horse today. Im down 4lbs(just getting started with my journey) and my official liquid diet starts tomorrow but I have been trying really hard to stick to it now. Surgery in one week. :)

Overall i eat really really well, but i definitely had some caramel m&m’s a few days ago because i was craving chocolate and it was amazeballs.

I’ll say this though so it’s clear. Live your life and don’t apologize or feel guilty about it. But at the same time cheats are for occasions, and they tend to work out better for people in the maintenance phase vs still losing phase. If you want to cheat do it, but own it and be accountable so you dont fall off the wagon. It’s easy to do. It’s your journey, have fun with it.

Confessions! They make my catholic schoolgirl heart flutter. Anyway, ten days into the two week liquid diet I screech into the Burger King parking lot like the getaway driver in a bank robbery. Order a small onion ring (sans sauce-I'm health conscience like that) and woof them down. As I'm licking my fingers I think how guilty I should feel and I should probably cry or something but I couldn't squeeze out a single tear. Funny thing is, I don't even like Burger King and there were way better options across the street but I couldn't be bothered to do a U turn.

This post made me feel so much better, we're all human, we do human things like eat things we're not supposed to and slip past that fine line of good and bad! But it goes to show that you can still lead a "normal" life with little to no repercussions as long as its not a constant reoccurring thing! Thank you so much Matt!

      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.

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        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!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.
