Yeah I most def am. I use Baritastic app and I usually do really good but today I just couldn’t get the thought of ice cream out of my head. I normally try to ignore it. I never cheated my pre op and my post op until now and I feel guilty. I think im just going to ask my boyfriend to throw it away when I leave to work. 😩☹️ the crazy thing is my stomach didn’t hurt at all and I was hoping it would sadly. I was hoping that I would feel some type of restriction...that’s what scares me the most.

Ice cream is a slider. You won't feel restriction. That's why it's so easy to over-indulge :(

I ate 2 multigrain corn chips (Food Should Taste Good Olive chips) yesterday. I am only 4 weeks out so this was a HUGE no-no. It did, however, completely satisfy the need to CRUNCH that had been growing for the last 4 weeks so while I won't repeat it, I don't really regret it. I chewed those chips into oblivion and they didn't hurt, at least!

@TaylorMade4One I'm not sure I feel the same way about Burger King's onion rings --or any onion rings for that matter-- but your post was hilarious from start to finish. I almost felt like I was riding shotgun with you while you were in that parking lot eating away sauceless and guilt-free.

So, that's a lot of bad stuff. My surgeon's PA grudgingly signed off on the diet soda. I also have a good friend who's a GI, and he's a lot easier to have real conversations with (vs. my surgeon), and he signed off on all of the above, as long as I promised to stop if I had any issues at all.

My surgeon told me that after I am done healing, nothing is off limits unless it causes me pain, I specifically asked about soda and he allows it. My Nutritionist hates it buuuuut I am for SURE going to have a coke zero in a few weeks haha.

I haven’t cheated at all food wise but have allowed myself much more alcohol than I should.

Nope, there are repercussions, dumping, stalling rebound eating, triggering bad habits. This is not a post to undermine the seriousness of following the rules or promote lawlessness , just to show that *Sometimes* SOMETIMES *sometimes* we don't get everything right, but there are repercussions... Because I ate cake and pie and birthday meals... I gained instead of lost. This is my losing phase. Have a short window then its done. My window is closing.

While you may get away with it, as my doctor says, it is a slippery slope. It does not take much to revert back to the old ways, especially if you are like me and use food as a coping mechanism.

This is sorta what I wanted to avoid. We all know the *potential* repercussions, even though there are studies that show that having some level of "cheat" actually HELPS diets, The point really of this page was to show that, we are human and that we do slip up and there isn't anything wrong with that...

Reverting to old habits isn't cheating, that's giving up, and that's what a little cheat here and there can actually prevent. What I believe was meant when one poster said "no repercussions" was that... that 1 cheat, didn't have any repercussions.

I personally don't feel that eating cake, pie, "birthday meals" ETC is "cheating"... cheating, to me, is a very limited, rare occasion when otherwise you would break. Several instances in a row... isn't cheating, it's reverting.

Again... in my opinion.

        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.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
