Unfortunately, fear will get you there. Got to tell that fear you won't and move on. You can do right by your sleeve, just believe it and work for it. Blessings hon, but don't let that fear rule you.

Hi, I had the surgery aug 18th 4 mo ago. I have been learning many lessons and do not regret my decision. But there are many realities you must face to be successful and to overcome them one by one. Having the surgery gives you a great head start, you lose a significant amount right away, which leaves you feeling very positive, esp with all the applause of friends and acquaintances. But after you navigate your post surgery diet , and everything is healing fine, there are other battles to consider, my main one is realizing , for me at least, I can eat and tolerate almost all food. So 60+ years of bad habits are still lurking in the background just waiting to rear their ugly head. So to make this short and concise, this is where I am today.
no snacking, I mean, nibbling snacking. even if it is good for you. eat at specified times, even your snacks.
I am staying on my very low carb, pre surgery diet, only vegs and fruits for carbs, very minimal bread( I use one slice under my poached eggs.)
I can eat whatever I want now, but I got this big for a reason, and it was by not taking 1 lb seriously. One lb, = 1 lb of butter, that is significant, gaining that volume is not to be ignored
So as I continue this journey I have a good 60-80 lbs to go, but I am going to be in control of my addiction and not let it control me. Everyone has issues contributing to our weight problems, so learn to be honest with yourself, attack them one at a time. and Good Luck!!
