I'm in DBT therapy to help change my relationship with food. It's a behavior change method that gives strategies to deal with emotions and practice mindfulness. I think it's helping. I talk mainly about my relationship with food and emotional eating in therapy and I do reading and practice certain steps and techniques throughout the week. I definitely won't hurt to start talking about your relationship with food in therapy.

Yes, if it is a problem, you should consider therapy or perhaps Overeaters Anonymous to learn coping mechanisms.

At this stage, the "wrong food" is likely to make you feel crappy. Take advantage of that!

I also strongly encourage you to get some bariatric cookbooks so that you can try new recipes in order to stay away from the foods you used to eat.

      Keep going. I guess I'm experiencing a stall almost 6 weeks out. Keep going.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲
