I am 16 pounds away from seeing my surgeon and setting my date. So why am I eating all the time ? Yesterday I was 300 calories over my goal. It is 2:00am and I am up just ate 9 triscuit for 120 calories and a Barbacue beef sandwich for 240 calories I think I have issues with succeeding

More likely you are an emotional eater. And you have to learn to address it so you can succeed. And right before surgery, to me, you go through a myriad of emotions. I think that's normal. And if you eat your emotions, well, that's the answer.

I still struggle with this, surgery or no surgery, it's (to me) not easy. But keep trying.

I am in a WLS support group and a dr. runs the group. Do you have anything like that in your area? Could you work with a professional on cognitive behavorial techniques?

Try meetup.com to see if you can find some other WLS patients who already have a support group started.

No u don't have issues succeeding ... u have issues eating. We all do. That's why we are all here. I know at my drs office they have a support group and.support meeting 2xs a month, at least. You may want to call and ask your drs office if they do or know of any. If u can't ... everyone here is great!

Thanks, I was really worried about today with all that chocolate floating around the hospital. But guess what today was pretty stress free and I didn't have one piece. Tells me more about myself Lol

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
