  1. Well I have regained 60 or the original 80 lb lost...in a little over four years. My therapist thinks there was not enough therapy done prior to the surgery which was done when my life was a lot hectic with caregiving etc. i have gained weight by eating slider foods, the restriction is still there. I drink at times too soon after eating especially when out so not to look too different. I am addicted to carbs/sweets. I never settled my addiction problems prior to the surgery. I need help..Please no criticism or mean posts as not good for some one with depression.

    Hi!
  6. 53 days, 47 lbs and feeling a little bit normal. Down about three sizes, not bad lil sleeve. Lil sleevey wonder does not let me eat a lot and i tend to eat fast so I am learning to really pace my meals. Sometimes, I do not know why I shop or cook because what I eat isn't or doesn't seem worth it but it is a experience. I cannot do sausauge but one egg scrambled soft with one piece of turkey bacon seems to be my go to breakfast. Greek yogart by yoplait seems to be my yogart with 21 grams of protein. Nectar syntrax seems to be my protein drink with 23 grams of protein per 16 oz cup with a half cup of 50/50 orange juice. Dinner chicken something and well cooked string beans or brussel sprouts steamed and cooked a little longer in chicken broth. Don't judge me, I cannot do much more, never like to cook. I do turkey lunch meet with string cheese for lunch. Will try chicken salad or egg salad this week. Love a quarter peice of toast with reduced sugar jelly. Well these are a few of my favorite things. Be encourged fellow sleevers.... Can't wait to get to one's ville.
  7. Well I am at day 46, constipated for the inth time, at a stall for more than two weeks, and still feeling a little sore when I eat because i eat too fast. I can eat eggs scrambled with cheese, make that one egg, and one turkey sausage link- that is a lil painful going down that sausage. I eat chilles or refried beans for lunch/dinner, some chicken, yogarts-greek, applesauce and dreaded baked tortilla chips(delicious). I found a protein drink even though I do not get in all my water or protein drinks, Nectar syntax at 16oz 23 grams protein. Bariatric chocalate chews for protein _calcium citrate three a day. These are a few of my favorite things. I have had food stuck about three times. All in all feeling great and down one size in clothing. How is everyone...
  8. Day 15 stll nausea with protein shakes feel like meds ....ordered nectar syntax I have tried isopure juice too thick, click only flavor half way decent banana, tried isopure chocalate powdery, go lean watery, sick feelings after protein...started pure yesterday one table spoon chicken salad , this am egg good for one half then sick feeling made me not really want to see egg again.....good news lost 30 lbs....keep sipping it is a journey
  9. Hating the protein and calculating getting the water in at day 12 but in three long weeks things will be better
  10. Growling gurgling stomach, milk of mag yesterday scale barely moving on day five..thinking why did I do this ..family all on weird diets now ..is this a frigging competition...whew sorry...this is not an easy decision...I know my days will get easier because I really know who holds my future....day five liquids again

I do not exercise as I should, or take protein as I should but I am learning
Rome truly was not built in a day. I did not gain this weight overnight.

Since the surgery, my mom passed April 2014 I was caregiver for over thirty years with the last two mom being in nursing home.But I was the only child of four who went to doctors appt etc even right after surgery, nothing stopped.
