Help.. I fell off the wagon. :(



Recommended Posts

I need help... I fell off the wagon... not too terrible but I have gained about 12 lbs. I got pregnant in October and just miscarried about 5 weeks ago and I have been severely depressed and eating things that are not good for me... I haven’t been to the gym or done anything except go to work. I lay in bed all day and sleep. I have recently seeked help for the depression and I finally got out of bed today and went shopping and felt good until I got home.. what can I do to get back to lose the 12 lbs I gained plus more? I’m about 20 months out from surgery... I’m just terrified I will never lose again and keep gaining. Please no negative comments about my poor eating habits. Kicking those to the curb starting now.. thank you.

Lex, I am truly sorry for your loss. You need to allow yourself time to grieve. You've been coping the best you could and no one has any right to judge.

I am glad that you have found some help for your depression. Take this time to focus on recovery and being healthy. Let the 12 pounds be secondary. As you get healthier, they will drop off.

Please take care of yourself and reach out if you'd like to talk.

I’m so sorry Lex! You made such a courageous step in seeking help with your depression. That in combination with coming back here to seek advice shows you are being proactive. I agree, go easy on yourself mentally and give yourself time to grieve and heal. {{{hugs}}}

One day at a time. Back to Protein Drinks 2x a day maybe and 1 meal. Try eliminating your sugar and bad carbs. Be patient with yourself!

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through
