Note To Self: Remember Your Daily Success Strategies!

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

I've been struggling since Halloween. On the Gastric Bypass Team page I found a thread about "Holiday Strategies". Made me realize just how far I've gotten from my DAILY success strategies. So to remind myself:

+Constantly sip HOT, low/no calorie drinks

+Make (and eat) weekly staple pot of soup (beans, veg or other broth based)

+DONT buy crackers/breads/carbs (including candy/cookies, etc.) that I eat until I throw up

+Control portions by using small dishes/utensils

+Only have ONE serving

+Protein first

+Daily Vitamins & Protein drink

+Check in with SP: Read & Post

+Daily weigh in

+Walk (more than just to the mailbox and back!)

+Wear 'fitted' (not tight) clothes (banish the baggy sweats)

+Self Care: some level every day - make up, hair (bye bye dark roots!), pedicures, bubble baths, pleasure reading/ internet surfing (luv Pinterest kitties), retail therapy (try-on clothes sprees. I'm not buying until my current clothes are too big.)

WOW! I've gotten SO FAR AWAY from my program! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    These are all great and I had to get back to basics myself. I totally agree with doing nice things for ourselves. I have only recently learned how valuable that is in the journey.

    These sound like good strategies for anyone. Stay focused and I know you'll get back into the swing of things.

    Those are great strategies. I didn't have surgery, but could sure take a page from your book.

    Good luck! I am only 3 months out from surgery and I find that as soon as I have a cracker or some sort, it doesnt fill me up (ie cracker dipped in spinach dip) usually I get the full signal so quickly but for some reason or another, crackers just don't do that for me.
