What was your first desert after sleeve?



Recommended Posts

A lot of people wait until their in maintenance to have desert for the first time but I wanted to know if I was going to dump on sugar so I had half of a candy bar to see how I tolerated it. I didn’t dump so now I know that I can have sugar in moderation during maintenance and I haven’t really craved it since. I have recently discovered the Quest candy bites. The caramel ones are my favorite. They are small so it’s only like 80 calories and there is at least some Protein in them.

I've opted not to have Desserts, treats, cheats, etc. until I am in maintenance or 1+ year out, whichever is sooner, even if I have the "ok" from my surgeon. I intend to stick to my plan !00% for the time being. My sleeve will never be more effective and weight loss be easier than it is right now, in the post-op honeymoon phase. If I want to be successful long-term, I need to be willing to give up some comforts in the short-term. The empty calories don't serve me or my goals and aren't helpful in any way. Additionally, I don't want to give myself any temptation to fall back into old habits that might hurt me in the long run. I support you in whatever decision you make, but I would suggest maybe holding off for a while. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

sugar free fudgesicles (40 calories each) were my fave dessert post-op. I would usually eat two 😏. I don’t mind artificial sweeteners, but some do.

sugar free popsicles, sugar free fudgesicles, Greek yogurt, or sugar free Jello topped with light or sugar free Cool Whip.

one of the first desserts I can remember was on Thanksgiving five months after my surgery. I brought a thing of Light & Fit pumpkin-flavored yogurt for my dessert. I think I enjoyed it just as much as I would have enjoyed pumpkin pie - and it was way healthier!

It’s a personal a thing. You know your strengths & weaknesses. I was an avoid sweet things person while I was losing - real sugar, artificial & alternatives. It is challenging as it seems like they put it in everything but avoiding it it did get rid of my desire for anything sweet. The first traditionally sweet thing I had was at Christmas (7 months after surgery & 1 month into maintenance) - I had a couple of teaspoons of Christmas cake & dessert. It was ok but I didn’t really want any more than what I ate. I don’t have Desserts, cakes, biscuits, lollies, etc. much at all - go months without it. My sweet comes from fruit, yoghurt & a Protein Bar (low sugar ones cause a little sweet tastes crazy sweet to me now). I used to make chia pudding & flavoured it with vanilla if I really wanted something dessert-like.

pumpkin pie filling. I had surgery in November so a family member was testing out vegan pumpkin pie recipes from scratch. The ingredients was bare bones and had no sugar. It was basically freshly made pumpkin purée but felt like a real indulgence.

      Keep going. I guess I'm experiencing a stall almost 6 weeks out. Keep going.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲
