Not to be an ass but some of you aren’t sappose to be even eating these Foods this early.Triscuts and Doughnuts maybe in 11 Months or so ???
I agree if you want to stay successful you should be staying away from donuts and empty calorie foods totally. That's why there is only a 5%success rate.

Embrace! Embrace! Embrace! Capitalize on your honeymoon period. Let the weight fall off you by the barrel full!!!!

Eat only for fuel! Do what you need. Keep is simple and find new pursuits and new ways to get excitement and pleasure. This is a blessed once in a lifetime opportunity. You will likely NEVER feel this way again due to your WLS.

I never thought I’d feel this way cuz I looooved ma food.. now I use food as medicine and I only eat what’s good for me because of food aversion and the fact that everything tastes different now.. this girl now loves salads...I’m as baffled as anyone!!!

Ok y'all so I'm 6 months out and nothing remotely sounds appealing. Like even stuff I normally crave and love just ewwww nope. Like the most that even sounds ok right now is apple sauce and really anything soft. Nothing too dense. Help me y'all what is this nonsense

I went through that at 4 months. I hated everything. My nutritionist said its extremely common 4-6 months out and it would pass, it did.

At about 1 month post op, I was totally not interested in eating. I felt like it was a chore and I was perfectly fine not eating at all. This lasted about 2-3 weeks and I think I just ate/drank Protein Shakes and yogurt (and the occasional bite of chicken) during this time. These days I'll still have a day here or there when I'm not in the mood to eat, but I force myself to eat something for nutrition's sake...which I think in turn may be perpetuating my aversion to eat.

For us wls folks, I guess its a good thing, because we don't overeat, but it's also not so great if you aren't getting all your nutrients in. Aim for balance....

P.S. On the flip side of things, however, I do love to cook/prepare meals and plan what to cook/prepare, to the point where the fam thinks it's getting a little obsessive.

Haha I totally force myself to eat but I laugh because my famiy is getting the whole its obsessive thing and its only week 7 haha! My family has a well balanced meal every day. Frankly my husband says man ill just eat cereal...no no way Ill cook 2 veggies and meat but I eat 4bites hehe

        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.
