Didn't give it a thought till the weight was gone and firmly into maintenance.
I do have it on occasion now.....
Problem is.... ounce for ounce, popcorn has more calories and more carbs than straight up white bread !!!
Even air popped popcorn without butter? :(
Butter (oils/fats) add calories and do nothing to effect carbs....
I am not anti fat per-se, but in WL and maintenance you need to be conscious of both carb and calorie intake.
Sometimes the difference between WL and maintenance is added fat calories.
Popcorn is basically in the same category as bread, pasta, rice, potato.
If your plan allows those things and your doctor approves..... your golden !
I've eaten popcorn many many times since about 2 months out. I know it isn't ideal, but it works for me.

I have been eating popcorn since 8 weeks post surgery. I eat it frequently. As long as you are journaling your food and nutrition and meeting those goals, it isn't a problem. I am currently 5 months post surgery and have lost 73 pounds with another 28 to go!
