At that point I became pregnant, I did very well during my pregnancy only gaining 12lbs with strict supervision of my OB/GYN. I had a successful birth baby was perfect I was fine.

  11. So I know I don't feel real hunger pains, I have learned when my body is hungry and I try to keep a strict feeding schedule for myself so i don't get sick and get in what I need. Well the last 48 hours I have not been hungry at all the thought of putting food in my mouth makes me nauseous and even makes me gag. I try and eat because I know I have to but nothing is making me happy or really just having the want to eat food. any one else have this issue ever?

I have an addictive personality and just know I would have turned to alcohol or drugs after to deal. Knowing that I can't really do those things now with out probably really hurting myself has saved me. Now the issues is I am having the typical after wls blues mixed
