Broken Record

This is me saying the same thing I have said for the last few months.  This is so f*ing hard!  I am struggling.  I am hungry again.  I am not losing... I am sort of maintaining and I have gained a little.  I am bouncing around roughly 183 these days.  I hate it... it is frustrating that I know what I need to do but just can't seem to do it. 

I am exercising and trying to count calories.  However, my life keeps getting in my way.  I have too much fun with friends and family.  I am legitimately hungry.  I can't seem to make it a day with less than 1400 calories, and that is a good day.  The full feeling I used to get after a cup of food is long gone.  Granted, I could always eat more than most sleeved folks.  My surgeon explained that revisions often have a much harder time than first timers and I think that has been the case with me.

The good news is that I still can't eat nearly what I used to be able to.  It seems to limit the damage I can do.  I am trying to eat lots of fruits and vegetables to minimize the damage but I am just so hungry! 

I have a fit bit and have been doing great on the activity front, but I think that just adds to my hunger.  Argh... the funny thing (not in a haha funny way) is that so many folks are struggling on the blogs.  It just proves that weight loss surgery is not the "easy way".  We all have to work for it and it is always a struggle.  I am hoping to get 5 lbs off in the next month.  I can do that right?

Take care all!
