Help! Running out of will power!!!



Recommended Posts

I had a couple of mini chocolate eggs and some Easter bun, and bbq sausages, guess what? I didn't turn into a troll or 3 eyed cyclops! I had my treats and that's that . . . but i'm back on track today. . . I always do excellent during the week and on Saturdays, for some reason, I don't do well Sundays, but 1 out of 6 isn't bad at all. . . still losing and am happy. . . good luck

me too! no will power here! I ate the candy! LOL

ok. really not much. One or two robins eggs and a single reces pb cup in the last week. And I had milk with them so that balanced it out, right?? : )

I also keep a container of Sara Lee Cheesecake Bites in the freezer. I think 26 bites is a serving - and I will have 1 or 2, rarely 3, when I am in need of a treat.

I think you drive yourself crazy if you always deprive yourself. Moderation, don't over do it.

Isnt' it nice just to be human? Eat whatever, but now you know there is a limit? Its alot easier to say no to things now too, but whenever you need a little "fix" you can have it. . . I don't like depriving myself if i'm craving or wanting something i'll have it and get it over with then carry on. . .hasn't hurt me so far and i've not failed either. . . i had a really funny thought the other day. . .i was eating a metamucil wafer (which look like cookies) well this co worker of mine states "can you eat that!" I asked why not? She said it's fattening. . .my response to her was "Its amazing when i was fat, no one ever said, "you should be careful what you eat", now that i'm slimming down, everyone has become the damn expert on what i should eat. . I haven't lost 73 lbs in 3 months listening to the lot of you" . . . of course we're not friends anymore, but who cares. . . we are human and we have this surgery that helps us with Portion Control, that doesn't mean become obsessed totally. . . .good luck all! Enjoy being human!:biggrin0:

I like chocolate and enjoyed a little on Easter. Still lost a pound next morning. The sleeve is an awesome tool that lets us be NORMAL. Eat a little treat now and then, but follow the rules 99% of the time. It works and I don't feel deprived of ANYTHING.

when i'm around junk food i always say yea i can have some IF i want to and i will be fine. when i tell myself i can have it anytime i want to i don't want it then and it lost it appeal. because i know i can have it ANYtime i want to. kinda like the tricks my parents used on me in teen years when they wanted to win. so point. don't make it a big deal.

Ok so I survived. I sucked on a Red Tulip egg and made it last a loooong time. I think you're all right though. If I really, really want it I should have it so I don't obsess over it. But I will just have a taste and that will satisfy the craving...fingers crossed anyway :o

This is exactly my thought process. I know that depriving myself only leads to an ugly cycle of binging on junk food. I did that for so many years, and refused to do it this time with the sleeve.

Wheeee! The sleeve is gonna be GREAT. I hadn't had a single bit of candy since.....Chritmas?....when I had maybe two pieces, and went on a little sugar binge recently. It made me evil and I gained 7 lbs! THAT made me MORE evil. My poor husband. I guess all this gets him ready for the roller coaster ride after the sleeve.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
