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

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      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)
