Great Book on July 20, 2009 4:10 pm
Recently found a great book. "Eating in the light of the Moon: How women can transform their relationships with food through myths, metaphors and storytelling" by Anita Johnston. Its amazing how as we grow we learn to turn off things in our mind that we need for later in life. How to express ourselves, dreams, we turn off our good inner voice, we stop connecting with the people, world and ourself. This book has been a gift to me it is helping me nurish my self with other means than food. It is helping me to reconnect with that part of myself that I have stop listening to. Its helping me find my true self. If you still struggle with any type of eating disorder after your surgery I highly recommend this book.

Food Obsession and Gaining Weight on July 2, 2009 4:07 am
My brain feels like it has been reset back to the way it was before surgery. I have been gaining weight the last couple months. I can't stop thinking about food. Always thinking about food. How it tastes, the texture, the way it makes me feel. I think about what I'm about to eat what I can eat and what I have already eaten. I'm told that its not normal to spend that much time thinking about food. I always thought it was normal because I can't remember a time when I don't think about it. So that is my new goal to work on. Not weight loss but conquering my obsession with food. Behavior modification. If anyone knows of some great books on the subject please let me know.
I knew I had to catch the scale before it climbed much further. I was doing the same thing as before surgery where I would say oh 2 more lbs and I'll do something about it oh I won't let it go above 250lbs well I'm now above that point I got down to 235 at my lowest since surgery. I want it back but I know it will just be a cycle until I get the behavior under contorl first. And maybe it won't be controlled but conquered with the tools needed to get the thoughts out of my head. I just never thought it would be such a struggle after surgery. Surgery is not a magic fix, we still have to a lot of work to make it successful.
