I live in Chi-Town also and my surgery was done by Dr.Cahill also, I’m at 60lbs and I’m hoping my weightloss continues, it’s slowed down quite a bit! Wish I would have done a little more research on WL drs. I would have chosen a different one!

One get on board with creating boundaries. 2- get your own Snacks. Protein Bars or whatever works better. 3- .air fryer? 4 stick notes on the frig or mirror to remind you that you are the victor here in this battle. 5 prayer or meditation to reduce the stress, or whatever gives you peace besides food. 6 see if one of the kids will help you, kids do make great mentors if they understand what you need. 7 stay on here for support or find a group - gym - another person from the surgery center or Drs office. Praying you get your mindset and strength back to get back on track. This is your health and your family needs a healthy mommy. ❣️ Keep us posted.

So I had my surgery 6/11/12 and this ain't working! I no longer dump on anything! I can eat more than I'm supposed to. And I've only lost 60 lbs. Started at 338 day of surgery 321 but was 336 after surgery I'm at 278 now. Its so freaking hard because I no longer have support from my husband who demands junk food fried food pop and fast food. I talked to my Dr and nut and they said don't eat it....if it was that easy I wouldn't have needed the surgery to begin with. I walk about a mile a day but that's the extent of exercise. I have 3 levels in my house and 4 kids so I'm constantly up and down stairs. Oh and the kicker I now suffer from insomnia so I only sleep 2-3 hours a night. Sorry for the rant I'm just so frustrated #stillfat

Maybe look into some therapy to see why you're having a hard time making better food choices. The surgery is a tool, not a miracle cure. You've made great progress, and you can get back on track and make more.
