  1. Why do I keep hurting myself? Even if Im losing the weight, I can still feel my old habits clinging to me. I was really stressed this past week and ate at a fast food place and thought for some reason that I could eat my old meal. It turned out to be sooo not true and I felt sick after it. This is not the first time Ive done this kind of thing since surgery, but I seem not to be learning from the experience. So even if Ive been creating some really great new habits, my old ones are still hurting me. At 5 months out, I still have lots to learn about myself and my body. So even with all the weight loss, my journey isn't all that great since I know that if I keep doing this sh*t to myself, I am going to go back to my old weight after the honeymoon is over.

      You have to make the decision whether you want to go back there or not. You know what got you to your previous weight and know those habits can destroy what you have worked so hard for to get where you are now. Sounds like you need to have a serious conversation with yourself and change your negative thoughts! If that doesn't work does your team have a therapist you can talk to so you can rid yourself of the self sabotage? Sometimes we are our own worst enemy. Good luck. This journey sure isn't easy but is so worth it!

      Yeah, the whole decision thing is where I need to work. I guess for a long time that Im going to have to make that decision over and over and over again. Falling back on old habits that Ive had for my entire life is so easy unfortunately. Ive got to stop it. Thanks for the insight.
