So I’m just over 7 months post op. I’ve lost 76lbs and am at 128lbs (5’7”). I think that’s a bit low for me...too bony! I’d like to maintain or maybe put a few pounds back on.
Having a hard time getting to maintenance level calories without feeling like I’m going to explode or barf!
I’ve been adding spoonfuls of Peanut Butter, an extra Protein Shake, nuts etc. I talked to my dietician and that’s pretty much what she advised in addition to adding Condiments like mayo, salad dressings etc to up calories without the bulk

Anyone have certain things they have done to maintain or even put on a few pounds? This is just too bizarre having to think this way after being so focused on following the plan to lose weight! 🤪

I can't imagine at this point trying to gain weight, I'm still focused on the losing. Congrats.

I know. It’s hard to wrap my head around this. Scared I’m going to mess up and gain too much.

      Behavioral modification is the key... I went to my first session of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and it was incredible! We talked about the purpose behind certain unwanted behaviors as all behavior is developed to serve a purpose, being ready, willing and able, thought mapping (finding the origin/pattern of thought that ultimately contributes to certain unwanted behaviors), and replacing one behavior with another that's as equally rewarding, if not more.

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.
