@diane69 , your comment about eating because it taste good sounds so familiar. That was one of my problems.
I use a mine game, the first bite taste great, 2nd bite also, but then after few bites ask your self is it worth it. Sort of a version of portion control. It is risky because you have to be able to stop and not eat entire serving.

This method works for me when I am craving something, I know only a very small portion will satisfy desire, so put very little on plate and rarely finish everything on plate.

It takes will power, but everything does.

I had gastric bypass over 10 years ago and lost weight first year, then slowly gained. I also had problems with low iron which lead to fatigue. I have my weight back under control and now actually at my lowest weight for last 20 years.

One thing that has helped is going back and meeting with someone from team that did my surgery. They were great help with advice. I now do a annually check in with someone at Mayo endocrinology department.

Thanks for the advice. I will try that. I also have low iron. I just had a hernia surgery last week. It’s been 7 days and it was so painful I don’t think I could survive the bariatric surgery.
