So glad ya'll are posting, because I really need to get motivated to get back on track! Yesterday I ate good stuff during the day (bean "tostada," orange, salad, etc) but got into the junk food in the evening... and this has started becoming a habit. I'm up 5 lbs and need to nip it in the bud!

I am beginning to see a pattern that when I drink wine, especially alone, I eat more junk food. So I'm gonna cut back on the wine (all 2 oz a day of it, lol). Hopefully that will reduce my straying into junk food at night.

So far today I've had my coffee and some crackers. I'm about to eat Breakfast and am having a salad with chickpeas, blueberries, and pomegranate seeds so it should be yummy.

Oops, just realized I haven't stopped drinking the coffee for 30 mins yet. So easy to forget the basics, isn't it?? Posting here has already helped!

Awesome, good luck [mention=311505]blev[/mention]! Let us know how it goes.
Today I had a piece of homemade gluten free pizza, some buffalo tofu, and some of a Chipotle sofritas bowl. A very salty day indeed! (glugs water)

Thanks@fruitandveggies, I will definitely keep you posted I put a reminder on my phone

Just met with my Programs's wonderful nutritionist because I've gotten into a habit of snacking snacking snacking all evening! Put on 5 lbs so fast!

After we looked at my eating patterns, she showed me that I'd gotten into the habit of skipping supper, or just having a "snack" for supper because I wasn't "feeling hungry" at supper time. However that's led to snacking more all evening, probably because of a low-grade hunger. .

So right now I am treating myself to a "real" supper -- ruby tuesdays bourbon salmon with mashed potatoes and broccoli (lemon, no oil) Already caught myself sipping tea while I was waiting on the food, so that's another "back to basics" habit I need to focus on.

Hi I'm vegan 3 years now. I love my plant based lifestyle. No animals or animal products are consumed by me. I also just had a revision on 7/16/17 I went from vertical banded Gastroplasty performed in 1993 to my current gastric bypass.
I'd love to chat with y'all too.
My email is aka_et@me.com
You can find me on Instagram and or Facebook. However I do not discuss anything about my weight loss surgery on either media account. I don't care to do so. But I do discuss being a vegan.
