My 1st question is: What's that website that gives you Medifast recipes based on the ingredients you have on hand? Thanks in advance for any answer. Second question.. I had my GB.

Surgery.

On 11/15/10 and I am feeling a little depressed and in denial about this whole thing. I also feel like "What the hell did I just do to myself". I have been doing great physically since the.

Surgery.

And I meet my protein and fluid goals most days but I am starting to hate eating Medifast food and hate obsessing over how much protein I got in. I have lost a total of 13 pounds since.

Surgery.

And I am feeling as though I will never lose the weight. I know this is ridiculous since it has only been 3 weeks but I can't help but feel like I may have made a mistake. One day I can tolerate chicken and the next day I can't because I feel the sticking sensation and it may be the same thing I ate yesterday! ! I know there is probably a lot of swelling still but will I ever be able to enjoy a normal meal with my family again? Maybe I'm just having a mental breakdown. Has anyone experienced this?..

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can help you..

In denial? or just not ready to treat yourself with love? And.

Patience.

! And compassion! Treat yourself like you want others to treat you!.

Even at four months, I still like a Medifast food one day and the next time it tastes yuck! I had some sonoma chicken yesterday which was delicious but today wasn't. Such is life. I went to a potluck party last night and had a blast. I had a few bites to eat and was full. It was wonderful to be involved with people rather than being involved with food..

Relax! Take a deep breath and give yourself a break!..

I had major buyers regret between the 3rd & 4th week too. You're body and brain are in major upheaval, your stomach is now the size of a walnut & trying to figure out how to digest within it's new parameters, your hormone levels are going bonkers cause of all the estrogen being dumped from your melting fat into your blood stream, and it's gonna take a while to adjust to this major life change. It does get easier day by day. Be gentle with yourself, write or talk out the worst case scenarios.

Running.

Through your brain, remember to breath, do some.

Stretching.

&.

Walking.

And treat your brain & body both to something relaxing.... like a.

Massage.

Give yourself time for your body to heal and your brain to catch up. What you're feeling is 100% normal...

The first few months were difficult for me. I obsessed about Medifast food and the scale constantly. Then one day someone told me that I have to learn a new way of dealing with food. Because as long as I am obsessed with it I will never be able to lose the weight. So I worked really hard at not feeling sad, angry, depressed and upset about the fact that I now can't eat the foods I used to. I decided to give myself a break and learned to enjoy the Medifast food I could.

Eat now. I also put a lot of energy into my work outs. I also started giving myself little treats other than food, like going to a day spa, or shopping for smaller clothes. Once I started looking at Medifast food differently things got better for me...

I am a month out and I still feel this way. I know everything will work out and I will get over it but this was a life changing event in our lives. It is going to take some getting used to. I never in my life would have thought I would never be hungry again. I know I am not getting all my protein, Medifast food or liquid amounts in everyday but all I can do is try better tomorrow. I am starting my exercising so hopefully this will help me do better. Don't fear though, you are not alone in this! Best of luck to you!!..

Post-surgery depression is a really common phenomenon among GBS patients. I'm single, but I've heard some describe the emotions as being like getting a.

Divorce.

You're losing your former relationship with Medifast food and having to go out.

Dating.

Again, to find foods that you can tolerate. All perfectly normal and common emotions. Just be kind to yourself and be patient. Take it one day at a time, and as much as possible, get active. Walk the block, walk the mall, walk, walk walk, and you'll see the weight really start to come off. Hang in there...

OMG I totally thought I was the only one feeling this way. I am glad that I had the.

Surgery.

But...... I had mine 11/11. Maybe it's just the holidays stressing me out. There have been birthdays and Medifast food and holidays and I feel like it's all too much. I am supposed to be on mostly solid Medifast food tomorrow but I know it is too early for me. I think I just need to take a breather and listen to my body, and listen to my head.

I just have to step back and breathe. Big hugs to you sweetie...

I've struggle with the same. I had my.

Surgery.

On 11/17. I struggle the most with realizing I had a problem. I was in denial until now, when I want to go out to dinner with friends just to go... and I'm not even hungry. As far as regrets... all I have to do is look in a mirror and I say "Oh, right. I remember why I did this." I know it will get better and no one ever said it was going to be easy! Hang in there and keep telling yourself it will be SO WORTH IT!!..

I must say that the first few weeks are very tough...emotionally. I was going back and forth...wondering if I made a bad decision. I finally realized that I didn't!!.

I think this is a very emotional time. It almost feels like we are in mourning..of Medifast food and our "old" ways..

Just hang in there and remember why you did this. You did it for YOU!! You are going to do great! Just stick with it!.

I am now almost two months out and I can go out to dinner with friends. I just can't pig out like they do! LOL..
