What has worked best for me when I've regained a little....is therapy. Just figuring out the self sabotaging behaviors and the feelings and issues behind them...makes a tremendous difference.

I watch my eating...if it starts to get crazy and I can't bring myself to food journal and address it...if the scale goes up more than five pounds...I make an appointment with the bariatric therapist.

Helps like nothing else. For me, anywho.

Might not apply to you, but figured it was worth throwing out there.

Best wishes on getting back on track. You can do it:)

Hi and thanks for your response. I dont have a bariatric therapist. I have looked endlessly for a dietition with no luck. Maybe the therapist is what I need.

if you're no longer logging your food intake, you might want to go back to that for awhile and see if it helps. I quit logging my food and weighing myself for about a month when I was in India last year (well, I didn't have access to a scale, so...). I wasn't eating like a pig or anything, but I came home a few lbs heavier than when I left. Through that I learned I have to monitor myself pretty much all the time, or my weight will start heading north. Although I know different things work for different people...(my dietitian hates the fact I count calories and weigh myself so much, but hey...whatever works. And that's been working for me for the past several years, so...)

Great idea, i weighed myself daily for the first 4 years, rarely kept a food journal. I believe honestly that would hold me accountable which is definitely what is needed. Thank you a bunch

Maybe look into a "reset" before surgery? This is where you go back to the basic basics for a week or so...liquid, etc. After, (my understanding is) you start feeling the restriction again and have a better chance of continuing down the right path.

Good luck!!
