Wow, I cannot believe how long it has been since my last post - and I wonder why I have gained weight....
I was going through my profile today, deleting other people that no longer post and thought I better post something or I will look inactive, too.
Recently, I attended a weight loss seminar with my friend and really "heard" that I am missing the saiety (feeling of fullness) when I eat. I know what I "should" be eating, and usually stop - but do snack and graze, another killer habit according the the doctor hosting the seminar.
My surgery has not been a failure (as far as I know), but I have let myself down. I am currently exploring revision options as well as other nonsurgical options. The thing I am really scared of is hopping back on the rollercoaster diet cycle, so am not changing anything and am slowly gaining. I moved to Nevada 1.5 years ago and realized I gained 15 pounds...dang, that is almost a pound a month. I have had some short spells of success in losing and then go right back to my old habits.
As part of my journey to success, I am researching the support groups in the area and making some contacts here. I am not sure what part of me I do not want to give up with my eating habits and may need to take a look at the whole mental thing, too.
