Well I guess I came back to the forum so may as well open with this: Surgery was 8/6/18, I am down from 350 lbs (pre-liquid diet) to 260 lbs (plateau maybe?).

I am able to walk more but still do not exercise.

If I eat carbs, I am hungry in 2 hours.

Nighttime snacking is a thing- nuts nearby help.

I get complemented about "how narrow I look" and I blush and hate it. Makes me wonder if it is a negative comment on my past self.

I returned to mental health treatment because both positive and negative stress- extra support on journey too.

I eat more and sometimes push it... even when I know I shouldn't.

Getting tested for IBS/Crohn's/Ulcerative Colitis. Hoping it is not something worse.

Need to drop 10 more lbs for a colonoscopy... I AM 33 YEARS OLD :(

I guess overall I am good. Still low energy but have energy at times. Definitely eat a lot less. Smaller sizes are being worn. I do feel better about myself.

Surgery cannot fix all your issues. But I shall take this about 90 lbs of weight loss and say to those who are thinking it may fix it all something one of my doctors said.

"You had the surgery. It is like being given a winning lotto ticket. It is now up to you to cash it in".

I am trying to cash it in. Obstacles are present, mostly my brain, but I will cash it in.

I'm so sorry to hear that you are having a difficult time. I know I am a night eater, if something is bothering me, so I take something (sleep aide) on those nights to make me sleep, so that I'm not up at night eating. Good Luck to you on your journey.

90 lbs is an amazing accomplishment and you should be so proud! I’m sorry you may be facing other medical issues and I truly hope it turns out to be something easily dealt with.
I hear it said time after time that our surgeries are a tool. That’s how I have to look at it. A tool still requires work (labor) for it to produce any results. Best of luck with your upcoming test and as you continue on your journey 👍🏻
