So I now know I have a food disorder I am 6 days post op and I licked a finger of mash potatoes it was so good but I was so scared afterwards. You guys I have literally been living off of sugar free popsicle and sugar free sherbet. I cannot stomach the broths it makes me nauseous. I think I’m falling into a mild depression any advice for me to get through this

F@#ck FOOD! You are crashing in your head, Yes you need to focus on something other then food, We have all been there and we have all experienced the Head games! For me it was getting a puppy Find something else to do besides worrying about food.

Do not break the rules you are to new out of surgery - Try the Protein waters and Tea's - Are you buying broth or making it? You can do some of liquid veggie drinks also. NOT V8 but similar healthy ones

I'm sorry you are having this difficulty, @Tory Myers. The deed is done (you licked your finger). Let it go and don't beat yourself up about it. Just learn from it. Now you know you are tempted by mashed potatoes and you just stay away from them for now. If broths are making you nauseous, then try something else. There are other things you can do, like Protein Shakes and Protein waters. You can semi-freeze the shakes and have them kind of like an ice cream. That will give you some texture, while still being a liquid.

Try to focus on all of the great things about what your surgery is bringing you! It's the tool you've been waiting for to help you lose weight. You will be so happy with your decision as soon as you start to see the scales drop. Remember all of the health reasons that made you decide that surgery was the best option for your health.

You got this! Keep reading the forums; they always help to keep my mood up and my motivation high. All the best to you!

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!
