I'm 10 months in gastric bypass and lost about 80 so far, and haven't last anymore since October. I know I'm eating wrong and what to change and eat things I know will make me sick. I'm ashamed of myself and want to change. I drink with food and over eat because of that. If I don't I can only eat about 4-6 of depending on what it is.. I look at calories and carb and try to stick it out at work. shake in the morning an Adkins meal for lunch by then it's like 500+ plus and feel that I've over eaten by then and then get home and stress over it and eat more.

On the positive plus side you've lost 80 pounds. OMG! That's GREAT! Way to go! Try to get back to eating like you did in the first month post-op, 600-800 calories/day, 60 g of Protein, 64 oz of Water.

Get rid of those drinks! That's a huge rule not only to losing the weight and maintaining your loss but also it impedes your body from absorbing the nutrients it needs to be healthy!

Seriously. If you need to get back on track, take the baby steps to do so.

Start with going back to rule #1 - no drinking before and after meals! Then start focusing on what you're eating.

You can do this!

Does this seem normal or to much? I just ate an Adkins meal it says 255g and when in oz it's like 8 oz or so.. is that to much or about right? I feel a slight discomfort afterwards and think either I ate too fast or to much.

I still don't eat with out a drink 2 1/2 years later. I have a drink in my hand at all times. I get choked very easily and it terrifies me.

      I saw the post where you were denied the first time because you lost to much weight.  How much did you lose?  I lost 1 # my 2nd month and 6# my third month and scared to death I have screwed up.  
       
      Thanks

        I lost 11% of my body weight and they wanted me to fail to lose 10%. I even called the insurance company and asked them to clarify because the wording was confusing. I didn't know if they wanted me to lose the 10% or fail to lose the 10%. I was told to lose 10% so I did and apparently the person that I spoke to wasn't correct. But also this was in December and my company was scheduled to change to a different division of BCBS after the first of the year. So that probably played more into the denial than anything.

        I continued my monthly visits and they clearly showed that I plateaued about month 5/6 and began to regain. I originally lost from 333 to 298 and regained back up to 330 but have now lost back down to 318.

      One week post-revision, down 5 lbs since surgery day.....which puts me back under 300. VICTORY!!! Still a ways to go but I'll take every little win I can get. Feeling great other than minor abdominal discomfort.

      Breathe baby breathe
      Where does it go?
      Some of the water produced as the body consumes fat exits in the usual way, through your urine and sweat. But a 2014 study in the British Medical Journal found that most of the byproducts of fat (including all that carbon dioxide) leaves the body through the respiratory system.
      Yep, you read that right. You breathe out the byproducts of most of the fat that you burn, the CO2 from that process mingling with the CO2 produced by your lungs as they process oxygen. It's something to think about while you hit the gym or walk on a track: getting rid of fat can be exhausting, but it's as natural as breathing.
