First time I have gained since surgery

Today, I was up 0.4 pounds. I know thats not very much but it still made me sad.....its my first gain since being banded in Sept.


I had really good days and then a few bad ones with poor food choices this week. As I ate the not so good for me choices I kept telling myself "you know this will probably make you gain" but I resorted back to some of my old habits of talking myself into the food. Its like I told myself "weigh in is not til Friday so you have a few more days to cheat". Wow, I haven't had those feelings/thoughts for awhile. It was a reality check that I still have to be mindfull of my "issues" that contributed to my obesity in the past. I know this is not a race or a destination but a journey but it still made me feel sad. I made better choices today and feel confident I will just get back into the saddle. I just need to forgive myself and press forward. Wishing you all a lovely weekend doing things you enjoy!

  6. This is definitely a constant learning process. It's so easy to slip back into old patterns of thinking! Hopefully this will help you make better choices next time. Just keep at it!
