I have been eating really bad for the last week and I’m now discouraged 🥲 how can I clean my system and start over. I was sleeved April first and has only 54 lbs (I been at 245 for almost 2 months now) and I know I should be down more than that. I really wanna make this sleeve work the way it’s supposed to so I’m willing to start over but don’t know if I have messed it up

You don't need to 'clean your system.' Just return to plan, and stay with it.

Think of it this way, if you are walking a mile and trip and fall after 1/4 mile, you don't need to go back to the starting line. You just get back up and resume walking.

Good luck,

Tek

You just have to give yourself grace and keep trying. We all know it’s not easy but the good news is two weeks did not stretch out your sleeve. Your tool will still work, you just have to stick to your plan and let it work for you.

The first thing to do is ask yourself, what are my triggers? Then work to resolve them. What makes you get off of your plan? Find out what your triggers are, then resolve to get back to your plan.

If it's cravings that are driving you mad, try and find bariatric friendly versions of your favorite junk foods. Just make sure to measure out your portions. There's nearly a bariatric friendly version of just about any food these days, many of which taste just as good as "the real thing."

Good luck! You've got this! ❤️

I’m going through a “get back to plan” moment too. I’m just focusing on one day at a time. I started by making sure I drank my Water. If I drank my water I was on plan. Then I refocused on Protein and measuring. Then if I could do that, I was on plan. Lastly, I had to track my food intake. If I was tracking I was on plan. It took about a week to resort myself but it’s working. I realized I was just tired of the healthy lifestyle I had been following for a solid year. I went to yoga and meditated about my intentions and checked in with myself. The Halloween candy seriously made my knees hurt and caused my asthma to wheeze again. The struggle is real. I’m just getting through this lifetime of healthy choices moment by moment, day by day. It’s a little overwhelming to think farther than that. You will get back to plan when you are ready. Start with one thing.

      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!

      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.

      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 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
