After WLS, I Gain A Little Weight When I eat at parties and events because I cannot control the calories in the food & when I pretend calories don't count for me, they obviously do 😳

After WLS, I Gain A Little Weight When……

I go on vacation and eat what I want and don’t weigh myself. Now that I’m years out, the weight gain is fast and its slow to get back off.

When i look at a carb LOL

At least that is how I feel...however, mostly the scale goes up when I dont drink Water like I know it should be. It goes back down but takes a bit sometimes.

When I ate a pickled onion (small cocktail one!) ...

when I ate a slice of 'LivLife Low Carbs Seriously Seeded Loaf' - 68cals per slice, 3.8g carbs per slice!! 0.22g sodium per slice.

And, after just being away at the weekend - the weight goes up when I don't weigh myself every day! I tracked my food - kept below 1000cals, 25g carbs... maybe I didn't drink enough Water? ?!!

Eating anything new seems to cause a weight gain it seems ... "huff"....

@GreenTealael fantastic topic! :)

After WLS, I Gain A Little Weight When I eat red meat for three days in a row, and nothing moves down there (ahem!). A few prunes fix that though! 😉

Also, hitting the red wine on holiday doesn't help me to lose. 😒

You may want to try Naked PB powder. Naked PB Just add a little Water and you can get the PB fix without the guilt. It's loaded with branch amino acids that are really good for you!!!

Don't have a BM every day...

YES. I'm always amazed at how many lbs my bowels can carry!

Also, after WLS, I gain a little weight every time I have my period. Its like I spend 2 weeks to drop 5 bls. Then I gain 3-5lbs a week before my period...then I don't lose it til almost a week after. So that's about 2 weeks of every month that I'm struggling and discouraged.

So end result is that I have to lose the 3-5 lbs of Water from the monthly cycle and then 3-5lbs of my own honest weight loss. /hate

TRUTH!

Also, when I have my period, and when I ovulate.

And definitely "After WLS, I gain a little weight when I... step on the scales, convinced I did everything right the day before and that the numbers will reflect that!"

      this one is a bit of a slog to get thru but it is important to see the differences they are trying to define.

      Dinner tonight was: a dessert plate (cuz it's small) topped w/ dark leafy greens, refried beans & stewed shredded chicken. Pretty good.

      This is great, but having difficulty changing where it says under my moniker & next to my profile picture, "Pre Op" to ---> "Post Op".  I'm new, but had my Gastric Bypass procedure 06 February 2018. Halp! lol  Also, how do I post Before & current "After/ Work In Progress" photos?  Do I post it/ them in this status box? Any assistance appreciated. Thanks a bunch in advance. Toodles!

      Day 2 of pureed food diet, 15 day post Sx. I'm eating lunch (leftover taco ground beef mixed with 2% cottage cheese) and wondering "Am I full? Am I full? How will I know I am full?" I've prepared about a 1/2 cup total and eaten about a half of that. Then I get the familiar pressure behind my sternum, like a burp is just sitting there wanting to come up. I hiccup a couple times and gas bubbles up from my belly. There's no feeling of fullness in my stomach, its all in my chest. I guess this is full for me? I am just learning what full feels like. For the new me, fullness isn't leaning back from the table with my hands on my belly wanting to unbutton my jeans. Fullness is a feeling low in my chest that the food has stopped going down. Air is trying to escape to make room. It's the feeling of really needing to burp. Still learning.

        I get a heavy feeling in my chest and can't burp, then the hiccups come and they are loud and obnoxious
