Congratulations, Waning Woman, TX, on your success after VSG.
I do have an addiction to sugar and wheat and know I must abstain from them lifelong to be successful with recovery from my overeating. However a few months ago I decided it would probably be okay for me to have a “healthy” muffin, and it was. But I started doing it more frequently and eventually the addiction cravings kicked in.
I am now finding myself overeating to the point of fullness, also eating sweets daily. I’ve gained about 4 pounds as well, it is ironic that small amounts of refined carbohydrates will cause the weight gain whereas no amount of healthy foods will.
My new found health means too much to me to just let it go. However an addiction being an addiction I am finding it extremely difficult to get back on track. Also I am fearful that this repeated full stomach may cause me some problems even this far post-op.
