    I'm 9 weeks out and find myself missing the bingeing. I find it's much worse when I exercise, and when I'm in situations with a lot of sweets. It's nice to know there are kindred spirits out there.

    i had the lap band first and i always noticed i was looking for the sugar high he . exercised a lot. the best way that i beet it was by being ultra organized. on the days you know you will be exercising plan your meals for the day. add Im your good barbs as your body needs these for energy. i used to have a half slice wholemeal toast with peanut butter for breakfast and a baby bell for a snack lots me water and them add some wheat pasta with your meat for dinner more water because thirst can be mistaken for hunger too. hope this helps Im only day four with my sleeve and hope to used the same technique it stopped me binging on bad sugars. Im on my phone so apologise for any errors in this reply

    I'm always analizing my habits. Sometimes I know that I shouldn't eat but I do. I'm not sure if its grazing or binging though. Remember we are still new at this and learning how to adjust to our new gift. I try to at least make it a healthy graze if I'm going to. Sometimes I think that in the motivated state I am in to not clean my plate anymore I stop too soon and become hungry faster. Or maybe my stomach is so small now that it just gets hungrier more often. I am going to my first group support as I have accepted that this is exactly what I need. Good luck to you but dont fret it just stay pro active about it....

    My insurance company requires a 3-month period of working with doctor & dietician. I spent the 1st 2-months in the last supper syndrome and gained the 5-pounds my doctor wanted me to lose. Since my doctor requires weight loss before he will do surgery, I had 10 pounds to lose instead of the original 5-pounds! Somewhere near the end of the second month I had a revelation... The hardest part of weight loss surgery is realizing you are addicted to food. My cousin told me this when I began my journey. I thought she was talking about post surgery, but no, it's a pre-surgery revelation. That realization changed my attitude and my pre-surgery diet. Having made the mental change in my attitude toward the pre-surgery diet, I feel like I am going to be better prepared for the post surgical diet. It really is all in my head!

    I feel that feeling too...that feeling like I will "never eat this food again". But other patients I have talked to say they can eat most anything after a few months but just in much smaller amounts. I keep telling myself "this food isn't gone forever" but adjusting my thinking to accept that I can never eat as much of it. And for those high calorie items I tell myself I can have just a tiny bit once in a while...like a mini cupcake instead of an entire piece of birthday cake. My biggest problem I have already gotten rid of...sugared soda. And you know what? I don't even miss it much.

    I'm going thru the same thing right now, it's horrible, all my clothes are too tight, I'm trying not to eat so much and keep myself in check, I don't want to keep gaining and have to lose more to reach my goal weight.

    Yeah, Denise, if you gain a lot of weight right now you're gonna be pissed later.

    Pre-op, I put myself on a 1200-1400 calorie diet, stopped drinking sodas, cut way back on coffee, started moving a lot more, drinking 64 ounces of water daily, eating slowly, chewing food a lot more, etc. During that time, I lost 11 pounds. Then I went on the pre-op diet and lost 8 pounds. Then I had surgery and have lost 26 pounds so far -- for a total of 45 pounds so far.

    Every bit of the work I did pre-op really helped me get my head on straight for post-op and has helped me be successful, in terms of both the post-op eating/drinking/exercising program AND the emotional side of things. I really urge you to minimize the food funerals and weight gain pre-op. It won't help at all.

    BTW, there's a big misunderstanding that VSG patients never get to eat certain foods again post-op. Yes, you can. Just not in massive amounts. And not all at the same time. After all, that's why you wanted VSG surgery, right?

    Breathe ... leave the anxiety behind. You're going to be OK. Have faith in yourself.
