Well, with all the braggadocio and confidence that I no longer succumb to my old temptations I’m here in Maine with the fam and guests and everyone is eating their celebratory vacation food and I’m in the corner ( not literally, just having a inner pity party) and the only food that is crushing me is the cheese balls..now , I know I’m at the stage where I can try a few things but I have not cheated or tried anything to undermine my success so far but, those buttery , melt in your mouth , salty little things are taking up space instead my head . If I try some and get sick I won’t be able to be present enough for those I care about and if I give in I’m afraid of starting the ball rolling back to bad behaviors... oh Cheese balls! Help!

Be stronger then the cheese balls! Can you move them out of your site? That’s what I have to do when I’m tempted by a food that has been brought into the house that is my weakness.

Can’t really move them out of my sight since they are for everyone... the huge container has significantly less than last night so people are going to town on them and I’m sure it won’t be long before they are gone... it’s not really about the cheese balls , I think it’s about mourning the loss of a go to behavior from the past... people here are eating with gusto and I miss that.. but believe me not enough to EVER go back to my old ways.. this obsession with the Cheese balls makes me realize how easy it would be to slip back and I was over confident that I had that all behind me and I have more work to do than I thought.. Cheese balls 😪😡

Don't give in! I gave in to some Pringles yesterday and I regret it and I couldn't stop at just a few. Don't do it!

Hang in there. White knuckle it if you need to. Deep breathe. Exercise. Move them to the pantry. They will find them. Encourage them to eat them quicker. ;) Eat celery and carrots if you're truly hungry. You can do this. Vacay is about much much more than food!!! ((hugs))

Hang in there you can do it. Don't give in.

Always keep your mouth closed while you juggle! Its not cheese Balls for me, it's Simply Cheetos White Cheddar Puffs, they have been known to knock at my lips demanding entrance!

lol this is skinny pop popcorn for me! I bought me 1/4 cup storage containers and that's what I allow myself. I always measure. I have made a special cabinet for me tho. No bad stuff allowed in mine and all bad stuff must be hidden in the others haha

It doesn’t bother me to see other people eat, at least I try to not let it. But it is hard to process why I couldn’t just eat normal healthy meals and lose weight. I know I have the metabolism of a sloth. It just feels like (for me) food has become an enemy. Before I took the RNY journey I had lost on my own until it stopped working. My mom and I are the same height and ate nearly the same foods and portions but I gained and she stays small. Before surgery I weighed twice as much as her. I think that’s the hard part seeing people that can indulge if they want without worry.

Anyway. Sometimes you can find healthier versions of things you crave. Bariatric pal has a bunch of flavors of Protein cheese puffs. 21 grams of protein in a portion and several flavors.

I think you nailed it with the mourning an old behavior. I know that's going to be hardest part for me. Oh how I love that hand to mouth motion followed by a sweet fake cheese flavor. But think about your loved ones that you'll miss for just a moment of salty non nutrient added food.

Just tell yourself when people are eating junk food and with abandon that they are reeking havoc with their health. In SO many ways. Feel sorry for them because YOU are in Control, and you're body loves you for it! Think, " They're all weak, however, I, am strong...and healthy!" Turn the tables so-to-speak.

I know this is an old post, but I had to give my 2 cents. ❤️

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)
