    Hi John

    It sounds like you are getting set up for success again which is great. Counselling and a good nutritionist will definitely help I'm sure.

    Just a reminder to chew your food thoroughly - like 30 times for each bite that you have, put your knife and fork down and wait before you have another bite. Take it slowly. You small meal should take about 30 mins to eat. Try meat that has been slow cooked or is minced. I found that the easiest to start with. I still struggle with a piece of steak or similar - no matter how small it is.

    Have fun with the smoothies. Make sure you put some veg in and don't make them all fruit. :-)

    Hang in there - you can do this!

    John,
    First, thank you for your brutally honest sharing. It took so much courage to say all that you said.
    You seem to have a good understanding about how you should be eating.

    What's helped me is 1) if it's not a healthy choice, don't have it in the house. That's easy to say if you live alone. I live with someone with a sweet tooth. But I have figured out there are things I can make for him or have in the house that I don't particularly like more than a bit fills.

    2) Protein first. I put my premier shakes 1/2 w coffee and have 2 cups in am. Salad w protein for lunch, and usually a protein and veg at dinner.

    I have diabetes, so no bananas, and seldom fruit except in a low fat yogurt.
    Cottage cheese is a marvelous thing. Tuna creations.

    I watched Dr V about the chewing. I do 1/4 bites, chew 20 10 w fork down between bites. Pain in the a**. But if I eat too quickly I get "toad froth", and often throw up.

    Yes, Kristina seems to be able to eat with more latitude that lots of us. Then again, I'm 68 and was suffering (as was my family) from my multiple chornic illnesses. So not as much interested in food freedom as I am in restored health. Which I have

    Know you can do this! It's not just for a while, or till you get your weight to "the number". It's how you chose for the rest of your life, one thing at a time.

    Please keep us posted! We are all in your corner.

    Oh, and I do meal prep ahead, and usually decide in the am what my plan is for that day. Obviously things change here and there, but at least if I have a start point to deviate from, I don't wander too far off.

    It's surely a learning experience Be well!

    Also, I’m going to try protein drinks again. I’m going to fine a unflavoured one and use the nutribullet to mix up a tasty way of getting my daily protein in plus have a refreshing drink with good nutritional values mixed into it as well

    Wanted to add for the first time in a few months I walked through Aldi without any temptation to buy sweets, crisps, chocolate or anything else. Had a slight urge to get some Diet Coke but I had to resist! I feel energised walking out without any rubbish in my trolley.

    Yay John! Sounds like you are doing really well. Good for you.
    I have a smoothie like you made most days for breakfast, not only does it taste good, I feel full longer and I also get a good shot of veges with the spinach. :-)
