... 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.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
