I had my bypass 2 years ago and have lost 12 stone. Now I am struggling with food and I’m worried about putting weight on. I can’t overeat at meal times as can b ill but can snack more. Ive never been to support group b4 but am going to one in a couple of weeks. I’ve been emotional about things lately and think that’s y I’m eating more then normal. I don’t want to self destruct. Any advice from anyone would b great

I have just started a training workshop as opposed to a ”support group” as I am a qualified trainer.
My workshops cover all these points especially food issues and why we feel compelled to overeat
and self sabotage our weight loss efforts
and use a terrifyingly harsh inner critic on ourselves
as for being a glass half full type of person
WE ALL ARE THATS HOW WE GOT fat in the first place
I know I certainly have lived most my adult life either(compulsive emotional) eating or starving on the latest diet
NO MIDDLE GROUND going from one extreme to the other
and 3 years post bypass am in EXACTLY the same position as if i dont diet strictly and excersise then i gain WEIGHT
and I thought after bypass
i would never have to diet again
thought i had this licked
lol ha ha ha!!!
Please read my post on ”compelled to eat”
you never know it may help a bit
if not -what have you got to lose
best of luck on your own weight loss journey
