Yes, sounds like me, too. I am surprised at how hungry I do feel sometimes, especially at work!! Home is not that much of a problem. Sweets are not a problem either
and sometimes set better than other stuff!! The cake we had at work yesterday went down great while the chicken didn't.
So what can we do? My friend who had this surgery 7/03 and has lost all her extra weight and is maintaining well says she beliveves the secret is not to obsess with it. Not to become so wrapped in fear of gaining that we lose the big picture--so to speak. We will continue to lose as long as we work the tool MOST OF THE TIME. Don't go to pieces over and opps now and then---just go back to doing the right thing next time. I am like Sue, my behavior gets worse when I get discourged. So I am trying to stay positive no matter what!! This is not just the latest in a long line of failed diets. This is it, this is the rest of my life and I am going to make it a good one.
So I think you will do well too, Katie. You see the problem and are aware of it but I believe you can handle it!! Vent all you want when you need to---that is what this board is for. But just keep that big picture in view
And stay positive!! Sorry I got so wordy for some reason but I really have faith in us and this surgery--we are a team effort and we will do this!! Like my friend Tracey says, if she can anyone can. And she works nights which is a handicap in any weight loss effort.
So hang in there and take care of those kids and animals!! We have had birthday parties at our NICU like the one you did for your boys and they are great and always make everyone feel so good about our baibies and their outcomes. And my twin grandsons who are home now will have the same party one day!!
My best to you---------Sharon
