    Hi there. I have really gotten used to Portion Control for sure !!! I stick to Protein first and don’t drink anything within 45 minutes before or after eating ... NEVER. I eat my protein first then try to take a couple of bites of the other stuff. I have learned that I have to stop eating and give myself about 5-10 minutes to determine if I am full or not. For some reason , my brain doesn’t register it with the food in front of me and while I’m eating. .. weird. So I rely on myself to stop and wait and decide if I can’t take a few more bites. Sometimes , I will get up and walk around or walk outside or to the bathroom or something like that so I don’t just sit there on front of the plate of food. Why ??? Because it’s STILL a struggle. That’s what I want people to know ..... it’s not magic. Your hunger for food doesn’t go away. Your desire to taste good food doesn’t go away. It’s still there. You just have to learn to deal with it. I wake up every day and day “ ok, we got this “ ..... truly is a change of life and how you have to view food. It’s fuel not comfort.

    Now don’t get me wrong ... I don’t want to scare anyone and make anyone think that I haven’t indulged. I absolutely do have a couple of bites of ice cream once a week. Or I eat a cookie once a week. Or I take a couple of bites of desert every now and then when I’m out dining. But it’s a treat and it’s only usually a bite or two at the most just to satisfy me and help me not feel deprived.

    I started my weight loss journey, this time, March 2018. I had my sleeve surgery on February 19th 2019. So much happier these days.

    In clothes I am looking good, but I have so much extra skin now. I would rather not have all the hanging skin, but I would rather have all the empty skin than the fat that it once contained. I won't be able to afford the plastic surgery to get rid of it, so I look at it as dues paid for years of weak will and over eating. I choose to be proud of my saggy skin.

    It is work, and if my arthritis would allow me to exercise more, it would be easier, but it is doable. I know I will get there. Just keep working at it, and you will get there too.

    Guzzling can stretch out you stomach. You want to be very careful not to drink too much at a time. I too was a guzzler. " Fill up on water to prevent over eating" but that won't work anymore.
