Looking for others with the same struggle. Please help! I started my journey at 242 lbs. I had sleeve April 2018. My lowest weight was 193 lbs. Today I weigh 211.6 lbs. I feel horrible and so discouraged. No energy. Why cant i get motivated and stay motivated. I know all the right things to do, but just can't stick with it. Just completed the Noom program offered by work. Great program as long as you follow it!!!! Do I have to be 700lbs before the light turns on in my brain??????

Sent from my SM-G973U using BariatricPal mobile app

All I know, is that this journey took 100% commitment for me to change my behaviors with food. Because of my personality, there really isn't such a thing as "everything in moderation." Even in maintenance, where I give myself the weekend to be semi-indulgent, I find it's much easier to do my normal daily thing that I do through the week, then have a small indulgent dinner. But that's in maintenance--not during WLM.

When I was in WLM, I did have to keep my cals in the 600-750 range for losing. I concentrated on eating super nutritionally dense, low calorie, low fat, low carb foods and eating lean dense Protein forward, with very low glycemic veggies on the end of the meal.

I would seriously suggest working with a bariatric counselor to work on your food issues. Sorry you're struggling. You might start by filling out your stats so we can see how far you've come and what operation you had at a glance.

Same as Fluffy - You can not go at this half ass! Read my post on the Colossal F#$ck up i did post op. I refocused and jammed it out. I say this all the time and most will agree - The surgery is a tool, You must get your head together and your plan to use the tool.

I made it simple for myself F@#ck Food! Once i make T-shirts i will send you one. Not trying to make light of it but if you really take the two letter phrase and ignore, stop obsessing. and focus on be healthy - There is no choice but to loose weight. You have the tool now use it properly

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
