Great work! The hardest part for me has been to get my family member (mostly my mom's side) to understand the life style change I've made.

We have put all of our dinner plates away. We use the same size plates as our kids now. It does help to think I'm getting a full plates worth of food. We went to my parents for dinner the other night and I went into her cabinet and got out two salad plates for me and my husband. She said "you are going to need more then that". She knows that I had the surgery, she just still doesn't put it together what it all means. I hugged her and said "Momma, this is what I need to be healthy".

My biggest issue when I first started this journey is having a plate that looked very empty. People would look @ me and say "is that all your eating even though they knew I had gastric banding. I decided that @ parties I'd use desert plates & @ home toddler plates, people no longer asked me about the amount & I felt like I was eating a full plate of food.
