Not sure if you will see this or if you have since got back on track. My advice is be accountable to something or someone other than your self. Whether it's coming here daily and posting or going to a dietician and getting weighed in regularly and talking about what you have been eating. Do what your weight loss surgery program told you to do. Not what your fat brain tells you to do. Your fat brain is going to trick you into fooling yourself by telling you a little bite here n there is ok..I will get back in track tomorrow. But tomorrow never comes.

Always be aware of how many times a day you are eating, always be aware of how much you are eating when you do eat. Weigh protein every time. Calculate calories. Make best friends with a food scale. And always have it out on the counter.

Good luck.
