So cross at myself



Recommended Posts

Where to start? I'm 5 and 1/2 weeks out from my bypass revision and God help me, I ate half a bag of doritos last night. Not one of those single serve ones, a big one. I don't normally have them in the house but I've a house guest over so of course I bought some Snacks as an excuse.

What was even worse was, no dumping, no runs. It was like my body was before surgery.

I'm so cross at myself. I've been on a stall and struggling to keep my calories at around 1000-1200 a day, which given I'd eat more like 2000+ before surgery is a huge change, but eating Doritos was a really really really sucky decision on my part. Grrrrrrrrrrr.

Ummyasmin you are supposed to be becoming a delicate Flower of Islam , not regain tree trunk size or be big as the Blarney Stone. Get off that slippery slope, you know where it's going to lead, it's still a good Saturday, get those Snacks out in the dustbin where they truly belong!

Sorry, not sorry. @Frustr8 You've appropriated a LOT of my sayings over the months on here, but you do NOT get to appropriate my DFSW expression to apply elsewhere. Delicate Flower of Southern Womanhood, is not to be used to denote other "fill-in-the-blanks" such as delicate flower of islam.

Well , you know where I got mine from was CNN. a few years ago, a young girl in Iran who was not protesting, not rebelling, simply going from area of Tehran to another, maybe 20 years old, radical misogynists gunned her down for no worse sin than being out without male escort. At that time the CNN correspondent, perhaps Nic Robertson, said another beautiful young flower of Islam whose life was snuffed out. And this was long before your posts and mine ever crossed paths. Feel free to Remain the Flower of Southern Womanhood if You Like.

You and I both know where we stand. Please develop your own voice here on the boards and quit copying mine. TY.

@ummyasmin I apologize for jacking your original thread. :( These are lessons only you can learn for yourself. Sadly, all crap carbs are slider foods that go down without problems. People think they can magically learn Portion Control on substances that previously caused them to eat inappropriately once they have surgery and I think it is the path to ruin. Cuz if you weren't able to control before? You won't be able to do it now. They operated on our tums, not our stupid heads! LOL. I could eat ALL. THE. LAYS. (Fritos, Doritos, Pringles, Goldfish, Triscuits, Wheat Thins, Tortilla chips, you name it. :( LOL! LMFAO!)

So, you've given yourself a mental spanking and it's time to move on. What, specifically did you learn? Keep trigger foods out of the house, slider foods are as dangerous as everyone says, etc. Learn your lessons, then let go of the guilt and move forward. Good luck.

It's not the cheat that will destroy you, but how you react after it.

I get it with the Doritos. That’s the one food that I can NOT resist. I have decided - for me - I can NEVER eat Doritos again. Not ever. Not even one! I am thinking of Doritos like my “drug”. For the first month or two (after swearing off them forever) I thought of them every day. If that’s not addiction, I don’t know what is!! Now I’m down to thinking about them on occasion - like maybe once a week. It might be something for you to consider if you can’t control yourself around them. Now other chips? I haven’t had them yet but I know I could have a few. I’m only “addicted “ to the damn Doritos!!

For me, it's CheezIts - my gateway drug.

It seems you realize what your behavior was. That is the first step in correcting it. Remove the Snacks from the house and give them to somebody else. If you have a guest at your home..give them to the guest so they are out of sight but remove them from your areas. A mistake is a mistake, we are all going to make them, but we pick back up and keep moving forward so it doesn't because a habit.

You can conquer!

Great you are here, committing to be better

The thing about this surgery is that we still have to make good eating decisions. Every single blooming day. And you know, if I was good at that, I wouldn’t’ve Got so fat to start with!

But, now we have a tool. Use it. Stick to some good basic guidelines. Get your nasty food out of the house. Then, if you buy some, you have two or three different opportunities to rethink, and dump it! Throw those Doritos out the car window while driving home from the store!

And no Snacks. Ever. For me this is the simplest rule. Simple because there is NO fudging over whether I broke the rule or not.

Anyway, it is no biggie just yet - we have all slipped out of the saddle - now slide right on back in and sort it. And maybe do penance - I do this - if I slip up, I make myself have time on the elliptical at the gym (I HATE the elliptical!) I want my slips to have consequences, and for me to commit to putting in effort to making it up.

xx.

[mention=348975]ummyasmin[/mention] I apologize for jacking your original thread.


I'll just back away quietly from that one :-P


People think they can magically learn Portion Control on substances that previously caused them to eat inappropriately ...


This is so true. I'm quickly discovering that whilst a portion of chicken breast might fill me up very quickly so that I remember "oh yes, hello stomach the size of a small peach", crap slider food is still the devil. My bypass isn't going to stop me putting it in my mouth, only I can do that!

Mental spanking for sure! Plus I hate feeling disappointed in myself. I much prefer swanning around feeling all virtuous because I'm sticking to the plan. Note to self: STICK TO THE PLAN

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
