    Re: Confession Time!

    Oh Miss Sharon, so grateful you've figured this out! As Barney Fife used to say, "nip it in the bud." I think those of us who have struggled with weight and overeating, may have "addictive"...
  5. Re: Have you had luck with a weight loss journal?

    I track, but was diabetic prior to surgery. SO it's pretty routine.
    I used MyPlate by LiveStrong, which is free. I do track it all eveery day. The good the bad, and the ugly, even when I already...

    Re: Daily Meds after Surgery

    I still take the same anti depressant and anti anxiety meds I took before, and they were not discontinued, other than the day of surgery. Mine is extended release, but not a capsule.

    I did go off...

    Re: Self Pay and seriously depressed

    First, I am so annoyed anyone has to go through the added stress - but my cardiologist (not the bariatric guy) said it is a known health benefit. But he also said that insurance, sadly, looks at...

    Re: What do you consider snacking?

    Oh bwa ha ha -- my bariatric doc (and my other ologists agree) that three meals and 2 snacks, or 5 small meals, as long as I hit my nutrition goals are fine. And he also said a brownie at lunch...

    Re: I knew something was going to sidetrack me

    I agree and sleep disturbances make weight "hang" on, for whatever reasons. And I found too few calories (even of the healthy kinds) puts me in stall, or slight gain.

    Re: It's been 10 months. I'm freezing :D

    I was cold before, colder now -- but I have CAD and kinda of poor circulation. I do think fat was a bit of insulation, but my feet weren't particularly fat -- so I can't blame the cold feet on them!

  25. Re: Low BMI, anyone else out there? Done it, advice, tips, ect?

    I agree -- the VSG is a major life change, besides a surgery. I can eat between 6-8 oz at the most at a meal (3/4 - 1 C). That's not a lot of food, so every bite needs to be a healthy choice. My...
