First of all stay positive. Don't let it get you down. Start small. I find that an egg with some cheese and salsa keeps me pretty full for a while. Try egg for Breakfast. If you like it do an egg for lunch too. Whatever it takes. I make mine inside a pepper ring. I cook my pepper ring first to soften it then crack the egg inside the pepper. Let it cook up then add my toppings. I'm 10 weeks out and can only handle 1 egg. Hopefully starting small will give you the strength to get through it. Good luck to you.

Maybe start from scratch? Go back to Protein Shakes once or twice a day. Try to prepare your food ahead of time. So maybe put a portion in a container and know that’s what you can have.

Also, try to go to a support group or therapy and talk it out. I like the support groups because I get good ideas and I don’t feel alone in this journey.

You can get back on track!!!! Good luck!

Track everything that you're eating. I like the MyPlate app, but a lot of people here use the MyFitnessPal app; use what works for you. Set a Protein goal for yourself, and hit that goal daily. Maybe start with 60g. That's where I started, but then move up to 80g, then maybe up it again, if you wish; personally, I try for 100g a day. When I'm aiming to get that much protein in, there isn't a lot of room for junk food. Set a Water goal, and hit it everyday. Just go back to the basics and stick to them. You know what to do!

about 7 months out. Right? Take advantage of this first year. Your weight loss will slow down as you progress out from surgery. Start today. don't let a weight gain turn into 20, 30, 50 pounds or more. Time to get your head back in the game. Suffer the pain of discipline or the pain of regret.

  • Find your surgeons plan instructions. Follow them
  • Clear out temptation food . go grocery shopping for healthy food.
  • Log your food. Hit your Protein and macro(carb fat) goals
  • Hydrate
  • fit in activity/exercise into your day.
  • join a accountability/support weight loss challenge.

Thanksgiving, Christmas New Years challenge. New year new you!
