Yep. The myth of restriction and/or malabsorption strikes again. :( Sorry you are struggling. As the tool matures, you WILL be able to eat more volume, so you have to really have a good plan on how to fill it up without consuming too many macros or calories to stop your weight loss.

You have to go back to your plan's basics and to what worked for you when you were losing. You should look at weighing and measuring and logging everything to see how much you are getting and to know where and how to adjust.

Congrats on losing 147lbs!!! That's awesome!

Also you're close to your goal so weight loss gets hard and very slow at that point!!

I did have a separation around the time I stoped losing and I legit didnt eat anything when I was losing I ate pop corn and cheese and drank a ton of Water. I do eat more and i feel hungry now that didnt happen before. I do think its time to hit the gym and get it going.

Track everything you're eating and keep tabs on your calories and macros. You can hit the gym but remember you can't out exercise a bad diet!

Diet cleanup first, gym second 🙌

I agree track foods/fluids. I understand the busy lifestyle of kids and full time work. I pack a Protein Shake for lunch, and have to say no to lunch invites out. I track everything I put into my lunch box in the morning so I will know what to plan to eat for dinner with the family. Good luck with your journey.

I was tempted to not eat anything in order to lose quickly, but I know how sneaky my body is and decided against doing that. My body doesn't forget anything. If I try to trick it, it remembers and it will take secret steps behind my back to get its way and get the last word. I didn't even do shakes. I ate fully and carefully, followed the egg timer to a T, ignored my nutritionist and ate whatever healthy my body asked specifically for. Turns out everything I craved, my body needed at that particular time, to heal and reset itself. Beets gave me Iron, seafood gave me zinc, kimchi gave me Vitamins A and C, brazil nuts gave me selenium and magnesium, all these silly cravings had me going to and from the market like I was pregnant, lol! But looking back the old bod knew what she needed and I was right to listen to her and not fears, worries or recommendations. If you skip meals your body will get those nutrients and calories somehow, even if she has to sneak you into a mindless food coma and make you not pay attention to what you're eating or drinking to do it. You skipped meals to lose fast, and now she's getting the last word, sounds like! Treat her right, assure her you'll take care of her and just reset yourself with lots of healthy fresh things. Protein ahead, everything else behind. Lots of Water. You'll start losing again, don't worry.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
