I'm a little over 3 mths and lately I have had a few days where I can't stop eating. I tell myself no and next thing I know it's in my hand. I ate my first candy bar. A Snickers. About 30 minutes ago. I feel sick to my stomach. I have rejected only a few things. Candy bars aren't a habit I'd get back into but even once in a while isn't worth this feeling. On those days I can't stop eating I don't know what to do. It's funny, too, because I seem to even have more room in my stomach. It's maddening.

Just dont eat the whole bag and you should be ok. Just remember despite what the crazies here may say moderation is key to long term sustainable results.

Do you have access to a bariatric nutritionist or counselor? Uncontrollable eating, especially this early when you still have ample restriction, is a red flag. If not, maybe you can find an overeaters anonymous meeting near you or online? You've gone through a lot of pain and expense to be successful. Do whatever it takes now to keep that success going. Good luck to you.

So I'm 8 months out and thought I'd try some ice cream the other day. It made me sicker than a dog! Thank goodness my stomach doesn't like it because that way I won't be tempted to overdue it. I only had 1/2 cup but that was enough.

Hi! Dont forget to drink more fluids first. Sometimes thirst mimics hunger.

Also salads and vegetables are filling and low calorie on the days you feel the need to eat more.

And if you need a snickers like treat, look for Protein candy bars. At least the calories are modest and you can add to your protein intake instead of just carbs.

Good luck 💜

Some days early on I had an urge to eat. I wasn’t physically hunger, I just wanted to eat!

If I couldn’t push past it with fluids, then I ate, but made sure all my decision were good ones. I ate cucumbers with vinegar, carrots w ranch made from yogurt, Jerky, lean meats, etc.

This is where I'm at right now. I stick to my 3 meals and Snacks and just drink Protein and Water in between.

I was a Bad Little girl the other day- TOMKITTEN asked me to make him a Cinnamon Strudel, Okay I can do that! Well when got,it all finished , baked and out of the oven Bad Little ME cut a sample, honestly about 1/8 inch, told Myself" You'll Be Just Fine"-- Oh No I wasn't- sat down in my recliner- and Suddenly Precious Pouch woke from her internal slumbering and I was off to PukeCity, and I spent a good 1/2 hour doing just THAT , when she had emptied out the strudel she wasn't satisfied to just relax, nope I started "Dry-Heaving" until she satisfied herself I WOULDN'T Do it Again! And iof course, I'm not a new recruit anymore, I Knew Better, but Children IT JUST ISN'T WORTH THE 💔ACHE,AND SORROW! Do as I SAY, not as I DID!

Keep some sf Jello at hand always, also try to get more liquid in during the day. It helps me keep my mind off of food because sometimes you're just dehydrated. SF Jello helps with the binge issue has no calories, and helps with dehydration. Its a win win snack!

My sleeve tolerates just about everything suppose thats a good thing and a bad thing. The only thing I have rejected entirely was a bagel and I think thats mostly because of the texture makes it so you have to really chew it.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
