Don't click the link to it, cuz the tip isn't there. Am going to find it and post it here but loved the idea of performing this quick daily task!! Dangit, I couldn't get her video to load. But I found this one on the YouTube that makes great sense. I kinda like this guy!

Here's another potential resource for some of you. Don't know much about them other than they have a group on FB and do online bariatric counseling. Bariatric Counselors

Are you stumped to figure out why you keep self-sabotaging? Do you beat yourself for continually reverting to those highly processed, DELICIOUS tasting foods that contributed to our obesity and health issues? Why? Why? Why?

Well, turns out...it might not be "our fault"--although we do make the decision about what goes in our body. Ignorance is not bliss in this case. In a study just out (and come on, didn't we already know this--cuz I don't know about you, but I can automatically eat 2-3x as much Stauffer's Mac n' cheese as I can grilled chickie boob and steamed al dente broccoli--LOL). But turns out that highly processed foods themselves cause weight gain. They make us eat more. They up-regulate cravings, and they cause an actual HORMONAL shift in our gut-brain axis. If that isn't a great reason to shift our food selections to the outer perimeter of the store and whole, healthy, non-processed foods, then I don't know what will?!

This is a phenomenal topic - thank you FC for creating this thread! and for all the amazing information!

I've been very absent for the last month or so - and I feel very guilty about it. I took on another client - a charity that is set up to help young families struggling - it deals with dysfunctional families, mothers struggling with post-natal depression and psychosis etc. The workload has been enormous!

I've even cancelled my head-witch!!

Anyway, a small contribution to this thread is the book I'm currently reading - written by my head-witch - "Living with Bariatric Surgery" by Dr Denise Ratcliffe:

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
