I have decided to have cake on bd's. I'm almost 3 months post-op and I've had cale 3 times. Very small pieces. My bd, my 2 grandkids' bd.

I have lost almost 60 pounds. The next family bd is in July. I would say it's ok in moderation. As, now we are on a journey to health.

Other than a couple bites of some dessert* (I forget what it was) over Christmas, I have had no sweets (or chips/candy/chocolate/junk food/cake/etc..) since before my 2 week liquid pre-op diet.

*It sorta helped that the Christmas dessert make me sick - I suspect it was my first (and only, so far) foray into the world of dumping - 10-15 mins after eating those couple bites, I was nauseous for over an hour and spent an almost equal amount of time in the bathroom 😢. It was an unpleasant enough experience for me to avoid sugar ever since.

Dont do it. As soon as you let something back into your diet, it becomes easier to allow yourself to eat it again the next time. There are a lot of things I wish I hadn't let back into my diet "that one time"

I eat a Skinny Cow ice cream bar every once in awhile. Sweets weren't really my issue and I don't think it's any big deal for me.

Nope, I bought some Halo Top ice cream this week, 5 months post-op and I can already tell it's a bad idea because you forget all about Portion Control and it creeps up on you. I'm staying away from them!

I cycle in and out of eating certain types of fun foods but they are usually always during a social outings these days like vacations, parties, events, etc. And even then its shared or just a small amount, nothing like before. Actually, I was just offered a bite of a snickers icecream bar (on a very warm day) and I declined.

But most definitely its not a habit, routine or regular occurrence anymore because its not realistic for me to maintain this weight and always Celebrate with sweet food. Sometimes I need to just pass and eat salad or hummus

Does anybody have sweets after the sleeve surgery and if so what do you do?

We are adults, we make our own food choices. We get to decide how strict or lax we want to be. Make sure your choices won’t slow or stop your weight loss. Your first months will be your best loss. Your weight loss will slow down as you progress. Take advantage of your first year, decide right now how you want to work your plan.

Be mindful of slider foods and foods that trigger you. Some can have a Hershey’s kiss and stop. Others can’t stop. Once you add sugars, extra carbs and calories into your diet you crave them more and they cause hunger.

My preference is healthy options for sweet and salty for cravings. Dannon light n fit Greek yogurt. (many flavors) I dip strawberries in sugar free cholate Syrup. Sugar free popsicles in the summer. Quest bar on occasion.

I’m maintaining. I indulge within reason.

Even a jellybean makes me puke, I am venturing not towards anything sweet! Maybe someday, maybe never again, it's not worth pinpoint hemorrages under my chest skin from the frequency I do it. I wish that the next EGJ Endoscopy finds me closer to healing, feeling like my pouch is re-ulcerating, not requesting to have my RNY reversed, at my age possible I would not survove, I just want to be able to eat solid-er foods like all the other 9 monthers out there! Is that a too difficult request?👈😪👉

I typically stick to the SF popcicles if i want something sweet. I still do not eat enough to make or try Desserts. It would just go to waste.

Frustr8, is your ulceration at the connection between pouch and jejunum? You could have the ulcerated sections removed and the attachment re done. That's what they may have to do for me if I don't heal up and if my stricture doesn't go away. They won't do it for me for another 4 months though. Having my 4th endoscopy with dilation on Friday!

I gave up ALL sugar in any form prior to surgery. I had already given up wheat years ago, but once the sugar was gone, guess what? My joints never hurt again. Sugar is the most inflammatory food on the planet (with wheat next in line). Once you are off sugar, you will lose your craving for it, but just one little bite can cause the cravings to come back instantly. This all has to do with brain chemistry. Do you know that sugar activates the same brain receptors as cocaine? I know everyone must make their own choices about what they will eat, but I would encourage you not to sabotage your success by a few seconds of sweetness. fruit is plenty sweet for me now. Some Greek yoghurt with fruit is so delicious - and guilt free!

I don't really understand your post. The sugar in Greek yoghurt and fruit is not somehow morally superior to the sugar in anything else. I don't assign "guilt" to food. It's morally neutral.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
