Thank you for actually understanding my post

You are very welcome! I have become quite distant to this site due to the fact people tend to not try to understand and just make judgment's.

Dont worry , I'm just now breaking a month long plateau. What I'm doing that helps is walking outside around the neighborhood twice a day to get into shape . And I check my weight twice a day as well but I'm not crazy over the scale.

I've upped my walking to twice a day as well. The dogs absolutely love me now. But checking your weight twice a day? If that's what works for you ok, but watch out for the mind games we can start to play with ourselves.

Still trying to get my mind around the TP hoarding. This is not an illness that gives people the uncontrollable runs.

Not for anything but I have found my appetite return precisely at the time when stress eating is prevalent. I’m still eating well but do feel more hunger...not sure if it is head hunger or real.

I won’t eat chips nor sweets but I have had wine which I was not partaking in prior to covid19.

I also work in healthcare (non clinical) so I can’t go escape it.

Be well all!

Preach!

Toilet paper still out of stock this morning!

People also seemed to be more tensed today than yesterday. There were also more people at the grocery store this morning, though it wasn't really crowded. More like the usual amount of people you would expect at a store this size. I guess this is because of the weekend coming up. Or there are some news I haven't heard of so far.

Yes, it stinks but it's just the way it is for us.

Being isolated is depressing and when you get depressed it's really hard to be disciplined and make a lot of effort. Is anyone in the same boat?

I am in the same boat. I have been diagnosed with Major Depression Disorder with reoccurring episodes. It's a lifelong struggle for me. I also share a fear of gaining weight during this time. My gym is closed and it's hard for me to go on walks for longer than 15 minutes due to chronic back pain. I am just doing the best I can and trying to stay away from carbs.

I also have depression and chronic back pain. My doctor convinced me to try Pilates for the back pain. If that's something you might want to try, there are a lot of free Zoom classes right now.

Hi and yes I completely feel you! I have been grazing and my weight is climbing by the day! I am going to try online discussion groups for my anxiety tied to the uncertainty at this time rather than self soothe with food. As an emotional eater I seem to try to feel
Better with food and end up feeling worse. You’re not alone! Come back often and get your fears out- maybe write in a notebook just to get them out of your mind so you can focus on taking healthy care of yourself. That is what I am doing and it seems to be working. Stay strong and focus! You can do this!

      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

      3. zombierayvinn

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

        What state are you in????

      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!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
