... and hopefully he/she will have more to offer than "try harder".

My advice would be to come up with a menu and plan your meals. Avoid buying foods that you shouldn't eat. Maybe make your grocery list and get one of those apps for grocery pickup like they have at Walmart and Hyvee - depending what you have available in your area. That's usually free with a minimum purchase amount and would keep you from impulse buying.

You DID NOT go through a major surgery to let that crap food back in your body! Think back to the struggles you went through immediately post op and all the success you've had so far. YOU CAN DO THIS!

Thank you for your response. I am sort of restarting my body by eating the way I did when I first got home from my surgery. Major Portion Control. Somehow I had fallen off the wagon and have been drinking wine beer and candy. food is one of my addictions. It is so hard to not buy Easter candy.

Call back and see if you can get an appointment sooner. Sometimes going in for an appointment can reset your mindset

Start logging your intake and counting calories. Make rules you can live with and stick to them.

What nevermore said, also set a goal for daily intake, when you go over excercise to offset the extra .....

Keep tracking your food intake in an app like MyFitnessPal or something and stick between 600-800 calories per day. Have you attended classes at your surgeon's office? Have you considered visiting the nutritionist? Best to get back on track before it gets out of hand.
