Maybe mind surgery would have been better than WLS!

Hey just curious if anybody is doing the new Weight Watchers program? I think it’s called WW wellness wins now a day. Anyway, I am the slowest “revisionist” ever. (From band to sleeve) it’s been 9 months and only down 42 lbs. however I do feel I could be better at developing better habits such as drinking my Water, exercising more, not giving into temptations etc. I just had foot surgery last month and can’t walk for another 2 months. But I can swim soon. I thought maybe WW would help me develop better habits & give me more structure. At this point 9 months out from revision surgery I have very little restriction, never experienced the pain or sickness others mentioned when eating too much & I am so discouraged with my slow weight loss. I know it’s just a tool but shouldn’t I feel full? Desperately seeking for something to just click in my head & get it together! Lord help me!!!

from what I've heard, weight loss is usually quite a bit slower with revisions than it is with a "virgin" surgery

I haven't done weight watchers in a long time, but have you considered a habit tracker? You can do these on paper or as an app. It didn't work for me but I am in a bariatric support group on Facebook and many people there swear by them as a way to stick to habits. You could give it a shot. You might also try "rewards" for getting your Water or exercise in for two weeks in a row, like a manicure or a piece of jewelry, or a movie night (without snacks!).
