    Default Easy way out? and how to educate people...

    Here is a great video from a lady I follow on youtube. (yes, I follow a lot of wls patients on you tube )
    She tells about an experiment she performed with her co-workers to educate them in a funny way.

    English is not my first language anymore, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    I am the one of the few people who thought this WAS easy! It was like a miracle. Compared to every other diet I tried for decades it was a piece of cake. Well not actually cake but you get the picture.

    That lady won't be using her coffee saucer and baby silverware forever.

    Forever is a long time.
    But I know I still benefit from my bariatric utensils.
    When I eat in a different place my bites are still way too big.
    I guess some people never learn...

    Were my bites really that small in the beginning? They certainly are not like that now. I don't use the baby utensils that I used to use in the very beginning, but I do use a salad fork and small spoon. I also don't use the smallest plate, but the one in between the dinner plate. Very informative video.

    Well it is still the easier way out. Lord knows I tried when I was fat and was unsuccessful. This was much easier. Was it always a walk in the park, no but definitely easier.
