On holiday with the family for the first time since my sleeve in Jan. 12 weeks today.

Holidays were always a cue for indulgence. Never did the ‘diet hard so I can splurge’ thing, but did think ‘two weeks of treats won’t hurt’.

Not indulged, but have compromised. Had a couple of crisps during a marathon game of monopoly. Had a couple of sweet potato fries with a fillet steak (totally gorgeous one with brie and crispy pancetta on top in a puddle of red wine sauce...yeah I know! Got loads to bring home that I’m having tomorrow with salad), and tasted eldest’s desert (she was right, it was exactly like after eight mints), but didn’t have one of my own.

All that may sound to some like slacking, but I’ve stayed under 850kcal and hit Protein and Fluid targets with loads of extra exercise I’m really enjoying. Just guess I wanted to say it hasn’t been a slippery slope and feeling really good.

If it’s less loss I’ll live with it cos I’ll be back in my own kitchen in 6 days with my own supermarket shop, but willing to bet it won’t be with how busy we’re being :-)

        I get Brooks because I pronate. If you have a local running store that will look at your gait and make recommendations, that might be helpful.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
