I also want to mention that since surgery (July 2018) I have not thrown up at all! For a few months I was scared I’d get sick so I was actually not eating and now I’m very cautious to not let myself get over the top. I’ve been fortunate enough to not hit that point of puking and nothing has disagreed with me so far which is great because I know many people that get sick often. I’ve also lost about 120 pounds since surgery which I’m very satisfied with but I would like to lose some more!

Slices of pizza can be big or small. I have no idea how big pizzas are in your area (no kidding, they vary in size so much).

One slice of pizza is not what I would say is a particularly big portion. But I'm always surprised how little people seem to eat, both in calories and amount. Never could do this.

a 10-20 lb gain after you hit your lowest weight is actually very common. That's why some people intentionally go 10-20 lbs below their goal, to give themselves a cushion in case they have the infamous "rebound".

also, being able to handle a whole slice of pizza given how far out you are from surgery isn't unusual, either. I can usually handle two pieces now (depending on how big the slices are). This is opposed to half a large pizza, which I used to be able to eat before surgery.

I have to average 1500-1700 calories a day to maintain my weight. Too many days over that, and my weight starts heading north. That range is going to vary for everyone, though - some can eat more, some less. If you're not happy where you are and want to lose more weight, then calculate how many calories a day you're currently eating, and cut back from that.

I don't think I eat much differently now than a lot of my never-been-overweight women friends who watch their weight. Which is, of course, a lot more than I ate the first few months post-surgery. When I go out to a restaurant, I'll have a slice or two of pizza. Or I'll order an appetizer or a salad. Or I'll order an entree and eat half of it.

but again, if you're not happy with where you're at, then you'll need to create a calorie deficit in order to start losing again.

Even if your portions have got bigger you still need to make the right choices...

It's your choice to eat fat or carbs when you should be looking at Protein first as protein will fill you up where carbs will spike your sugar and make you even hungrier...

I made a promise to myself to be strict from day 1 and for the first 6/7 months I logged everything I ate and counted every calorie and carb I consumed and it's now 8 months 3 weeks since I began my own diet and 6.5 months since surgery with bypass and I've been in maintenance a few weeks now lost 156lbs as of today by being struct not giving in to bad craving...

The surgery is only a small part of your success you're also meant to learn better eating habits; healthy eating not going back to junk foods otherwise you'll obviously gain weight.....

It's not magic it's simple science eat right make good choices....

Go back to the start and tell yourself to be strict again so not giving into bad cravings.....
