missing in action month 21

I've been missing in action. It's month 21. I know I can't be the only one who has let old eating habits back into your life after weight loss surgery. I admit I been eating to many things I should not be eating. I'm stuck in 220's. The lowest I got was 214 but I keep screwing up with eating. So I'm following a challenge my dr. Office sat up. Protein shake for breakfast and lunch. Dinner is 4 Oz lean protein and 1 cup veggies. Snack is a protein snack. I'm slowly go back down. I haven't been able to exercise like I wish I could. I've been feeling light headed, dizzy and fatigued and about passed out a time or two. Went to urgent care they said it was ear infection. The emergency room thought I was dehydrated. My pcp did an ekg and blood work. Results soon.

month 16 after rny gastric bypass

Thats right month 16 , lets start with numbers.
Surgery date:330
Loss so far 160 pounds!
I really believe . That doctors dont get weight loss surgery patients enough psychiatric care. They should really make sure we have gotten to the root of why we are over weight! What causes us to eat the way we do,that got us so obese. And for us to understand and be prepared that the surgery doesnt cure that need to eat. What ever you reason be. i wish now i could have brain surgery to fix my brain!  Fix the head hunger,the eating when bored,sad,lonely,upset hell even eating when happy. Every emotion can be a reason to eat sometimes. Ok let me get off my soap box.
Thanks giving went pretty good. I ate turkey and a small portion of sweet potato with marshmallow on top. Well sweet potatos are my favorite. No one else wanted any so i shouldnt have even bought them. Lesson learned! Tomorrow i start with a new plan! Stay on plan for a full month and ill treat myself to a kindle. On plan two months another treat.
