Dawn! You NOT alone!
You didn't mention why you might have gained the weight? If you haven't changed anything, perhaps this is an "expected" gain because we are absorbing more nutrients/calories being further out?
I find myself stressing more about regaining weight more than ever! I had a 5lb gain last month and totally freaked! I had a long talk with myself and went back to basics...protein, vitamins, water...When I wanted to graze, I would truly stop and "check in" with my pouch. Was it really hungry or did I just want to satisfy some emotion? I then drink a glass of ice water and tell myself if I'm really still wanting to have something to eat, 30 minutes after the water, I will have ________. Funny...I usually forget about the food! Yes..the 5lbs came off but it took a couple weeks..
Hang in there!!! This food addiction of ours is for life..but we have the tool to fight it! (and I hope YOU will remind me of that when I'm one feeling like I'm losing it!!)
Thanks for posting! The struggles being 2 years out are certainly challenging!
