Its always worthwhile comparing nutrition labels of any products you buy as there can be huge differences in very similar items. Good reminder Angel!

Hi,

I am 5 months out of surgery and have lost a total on 22kg, however over the last 3 weeks I have had a lot of stress into my life and slipped into bad habits again and noticed i am able to eat a lot more. I had lost 24kg but have put 2kg back on in the past 3 weeks. I am so mad and angry at myself and quite frankly I am really concerned as I just didnt think this would happen only 5 months out. I think my big problem is snacking throughout the day and I have cleaned out the cupboards and fridge but I guess I am just wondering if anyone else has been in this situation because i feel like a real failure right now.

hiya
i am 6months out now and until about 3 weeks ago had pretty much a dream run - then all of a sudden over night put on a kilo - then a few days later its gone - then weigh in day its back! i am like wtf
i dont know what i am doing different than i did 3 months ago!... and yes it concerns me greatly that this is happening.
so i am trying in vain to have a look at my protein (like today - normally i would like mountain bread- but was horrified to see minimal protein - yet another brand had triple - so of course got that one - am trying to make wraps with protein meats and thinks like grated carrots etc) and i do feel that its winter - it makes us want to eat more- i know in summer we are salad freaks!
lets try and get through this together - tis what we are all here for (i am hovering for my 120's) and i WANT so desperately to get there.
hugs xx

melpaulned - we are works of art in progress. I agree. Just like a canvas we can start the painting again or tweek it just by painting over it and just like clay, we can change what we are making just by adding some water, add or take away some clay too. I hoped to have it written alot better but haven't been able too.

I know when I was banded I had to make a conscious effort...it certainly is a lifestyle change and one that we are continually battling....

I agree with the others. I also have slipped up many of times but I suppose it takes time for our head to adjust!! Lollies have become my downfall.

Our sleeve is our tool and we have to learn to use this tool the best way we can and look after it.

One thing that I know that has helped me is exercise - even if it's going for a walk and drinking lots of water. I also have scales in my bathroom and weigh myself once a week - when I remember just to stay on top of things.

I also sometimes revert back to protein shakes short term to try and get me back to a better eating pattern which helps and keeping a journal of what I am eating day to day.

I know it's easy to grab nibblies and especially if you were a comfort eater before - like I was. I too have cleared my cupboards out but some how I still seem to at times snack too often - especially because I do shift work.

Stick with it and remember - YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE!!

You are in a better place now and you have the support of this Forum.

Hey Rainbow,
Its a lifelong change and for some of us we have to work at it for ever!
If you really want something naughty, think about it, if you really want it, have some. I think we all have foods that we can have and foods we just cant. You know the ones that you just cant stop eating. Try and think ahead and plan what you will eat and try not to get too hungry. And remember that its human to stray a little as long as you can correct yourself without it getting to out of hand.
Sounds like hou are doing a pretty good job!
Linda :-)

Rainbow Im 5 months out too and have also found my sleeve is more accepting and portions sizes are slipping upwards.

I have also been snacking and yesterday was a monster day for me and I ate my way through a ton of stuff that should be well behind me.

The thing is that both you and I know that we have to pull it back in and if we do we can control it.

Dont let it get to you sweety, there is a lot of us out there that are in this situation... go read my dairy if you want to feel better about yourself... I was a baaaaaaad baaaad putty tat yesterday!!!!

Thankyou so much for the replies. I am sure it is the snacking and I just need to remember to stick to only a certain amount of meals per day! Thankyou again for the reassurance. I obviously have more work to do on my mind that i thought i did.

You are NOT a failure, I too am a snacker and when things get hard we often turn to food, this is what probably got us here to begin with. The important thing is that you have noticed that you are putting on weight and have taken steps to stop snacking. I agree take up a craft, I chew gum, or brush my teeth if i feel like eating, or leave the house and have coffee in a cafe with a book. Remember this is a tool and at least it is only 2kg not 20 so keep working, you will get there and remember 22kg is great.

yes and yes
you're not a failure, i am a compulsive eater and i just need to keep working on my head hunger
it's a life long journey
good for you for monitoring it - try and work out things that help you (ie craft etc to keep your hands busy, i'm sure you know the drill)

but YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE
just keep on going, we are works of art in progress LOL
