Do you use it often? I bought a food scale, but im not sure when to use it. Should I return it or just get into the habit of using it? Am I meant to use it for portion control? Do I use it to control my vegetable intake? I bought it to weigh out my foo

I ate coleslaw today and I haven't had it since before my surgery, over a year ago. Instantly regret buying it because I've had the worst diaherrea. I knew I would have to use the bathroom, but not like this.

Should I be more careful with what

I drank 80oz of water today and I plan to drink 32oz more. Is there such a thing as drinking to much water?

I'm supposed to have 3 dairy snacks, but im full and don't think I can eat a dairy snack before 8pm. Does this mean I'm susceptible to h

I know dumping can lead to diaherrea, but how do you know the difference between both? And why would I have diaherrea every Wednesday morning? I don't eat for 1-2hours after getting up and I don't eat past 7pm the night before. It's strange, can anxiet

I don't plan on stop taking my vitamins, but curious to know what's the worse that can happen? I hate separating pills each week and trying to find deals on them. I find walgreens to be helpful with buy one get one half off or free plus I can use rewar

I was in a great routine until my cat had to be put down and I adopted a new one. Now my sleep is all over the place, my cat keeps me up at night meowing non stop for can cat food and cuddling with me. It's so adorable but..I am tired throughout the da

Do I need to ask before taking pepto bismol or other medicines? Not to get into to much detail but I've had diarrhea and if it persists I'd like to take something to help.

I'm taking Topiramate (topamax), I'm not losing enough weight and so I was put on this to eat smaller portions and feel fuller faster. Just wandering if anyone has had any experiences to share with weight loss pills.

My surgeon is leaving to advance in college. Not sure what questions I should be asking other then who I will be seeing and if they do virtual visits. I live 2 hours away from the surgeon/hospital and they recommended I continue visits with my regular

I get my steps in and do weights 3-4 times a week. Should I be doing more cardio? My sister says I should be able to do intense workouts, but im reluctant to do more because I already aim for 13,000 steps or more daily. I'm disappointed I lost 10 pound


Want2beMe posted a discussion topic 6 months, 3 weeks ago

I lost 5 pounds in a week, but I didn't make any major changes. I went from walking for an hour to walking two hours split up throughout the day. Drinking tons of water which keeps me from snacking and I'm watching my portion control. It's a shock! Wis

I know it's been months since my surgery, but does anyone know why the nurses had to keep track of how often I urinated? They collected it in a hat before flushing. I still go to the bathroom A LOT due to the amount of fluids I drink. Will the amount o

I get a good 8 plus cups of water in every other day and in between I get 4-6 cups. Is that okay? Do you count coffee or tea as water intake? I have not.

Other then water, milks, tea, and coffee, what else is healthy and safe to drink?

My therapist isn't very helpful, she keeps insisting i have a deep rooted cause to not follow my food goals. I tried to explain to her that I turn to food for the pure taste and satisfaction. I dont have any history that causes me to turn to food and I

My Dr appointment was postponed to Feb.26 which at first I thought good it will give me time to lose weight but now I wish I would have had the appointment so I could get input on my struggles. I'm not at a plateau but in over my head with snacking, ea

I will be honest, I haven't been eating my protein first all the time. I'm still sticking to eating healthy but every now and then I treat myself to a goodie like a cookie or a bowl of ice cream. My exercise has been relaxed as well, Instead of 10k ste

I have plenty of sweat pants that are adjustable, but for jeans they are starting to fall down. Since I'm still losing weight would it make sense to wait to go shopping? I did buy some new shirts and I can fit in XL verses 2X. I was in a 24-26W pants a

I'm not big on breakfast in the morning so I drink a protein shake. I eat lunch and supper just fine. I struggle to get 3 dairy snacks in a day. It seems like a lot of meals. Anyone else required to take in 3 dairy snacks? I'm allowed to drink dairy as

I'm very disappointed I only lost 1 pound in 1 week. Shouldn't I be losing a lot more? I had VSG August 17 and lost 17 pounds in the first week. So why the slow progress now? Ugh!

My surgery was August 17, I haven't had coffee but kind of crave it. I drink decaf with milk and Splenda so should i ask my doctor if its ok or because its caffeine free its fine? I don't want to rush anything if I'm not supposed to. I also have bottle
