Welcome and good luck! One thing that made a big difference for me was just checking the nutrition facts on things and logging my food, helped me realize what was worth eating often and what I should only have occasionally. I am also a big fan of setting small goals, especially for exercise. Fitness can start to give you energy back if you're consistent.

Welcome to the team, Yasmeen. I find that it's best to prepare in advance for situations where there will be a lot of food around to tempt me. I often pack an insulated bag full of food for the day when I know that I'm going to be working a long day and won't have healthy food easily available. I often don't have access to a refrigerator or microwave when I'm working so I don't bring anything that needs to be heated and the bag keeps everything I pack nice and cold until I'm ready to eat.

My name's Tina. I lost more than 90 pounds between March 2010 and March 2012 and have been keeping if off ever since.

Hi and welcome to the team! Try to eat three meals a day I know must be difficult. Bring a meal to work and a couple of snacks like popcorn, half a bagel, carrot sticks. If patient gives you chocolates give them away or open the box to share with the rest of the staff in a break room. I have put chocolates in the freezer I can not see them and I am not tempted to eat them. I forget they are there. If I am full then I can not eat more. I have eaten a hard boiled egg for a snack. I have eaten a tablespoon of peanut butter on 3 to 6 whole wheat crackers.I have eaten a piece of fruit for a snack like one banana. Best wishes, Linda from bean town, USA
