Almost 9 months out, I think I fucked up.



Recommended Posts

The eating part at least. I still had a lot of bad habits post-surgery that I never sought help for. Oftentimes I don't stop eating until I'm satisfied, but until I'm full. I think this has resulted in my stomach stretching quite a bit, because I was astonished today when I found myself able to eat 3 whole sandwhiches with scrambled egg. I am fairly certain someone who's 9 months post-op shouldn't be able to eat that.

Despite this, I'm still 54kg (120lbs) down, but I know that if I don't fix these bad habits, I will start gaining weight again sooner or later. I feel like an enormous loser now, but I want to turn my eating habits around once again.. I just don't know where to start. Any advice is welcome. Thank you.

Not sure what the post care service is for you, but I’d go back to the tea and seek some help and referrals.

prior to my surgery I did hypothearpy, this was helpful for me. I also keep a diary of my moods and what I eat. This helps with the emotional eating, although I do still have some old habits, that I’m continuing to work on. My other thing is to brush my teeth after I’ve eaten and sip on Water til my next meal time.

i wish you well, let me know how you go

I found a therapist that specializes in weight issues. It really has been helpful. I go to (roughly) weekly group sessions that focus on the mental issues with weight loss and meet with her once a month. It has really helped me get my mind around some of the issues that led me to gain. Good luck

Before my surgery my therapist recommended a book called The Emotional First-Aid Kit: A Practical Guide to Live after Bariatric Surgery. It's a great book and perhaps you can find answers to he'll you move forward.

Let me ask a serious question: why 3 whole sandwiches with scrambled eggs instead of triple the eggs on one sandwich?

I would suggest meeting with your team soon to form strategies.

Safe Journey 🎈

*Waves to Vox* A Dutchie here too :D
I'd say just get back to your old plan, I am in no way a veteran, but as long as you don't gain, you are good. Cut back a little on the portion size, maybe cut down carbs and up the Protein?
Hugs, happy new year, make it the best one yet!

      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.

      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!!  😈
