You know how most of us have tried so many different weight loss programs?  Yeah, me too.  The one I had most success with was Overeaters Anonymous.  I lost 100+ pounds and over the course of time regained everything plus.  Don't know how many other people this has happened to but regain is real.  Even now.  I am 3 1/2 years out from my sleeve surgery and still have so far to go but yep, you guessed it, I regained.  Not going to dwell on that though.  I did it, I'm not proud of it but I own it.  

If you''ve ever attended an 'Anonymous' meeting of any kind then you know the mantra of one day at a time.  Well, I've strung up 12 of those one days as of this morning and I need to see it in print to remind me of how far I've made it so far.  I'm coming back from 30 pounds of regain.  Am I perfect? Hell no!!  I've had a bad  day or two along the way but today is a new day and I am determined to continue with my eating plan and using My Fitness Pal to log my food and do my walking.  I have grown lazy but it's time to stand up and get moving again.

Thanks for giving me a place I can come to and see I am not alone.

Today I am struggling with head hunger.  I see that in my food log and my attitude.  I'm still working my program but it's not easy today.

Thank you for being along on the ride with me.  I love the company. <3

Try warm drinks Liz - Celestial Seasonings fruity teas are my go-to when I have a case of the munchies.

Like @cinwa got to hot drinks. I still buy lots of chicken broth to heat up and drink to fill myself up ... 

Last night after eating some cheese and a bit of salami I sort of woke up to my snacking and realized it was all head hunger. That and your posting reminds me I meant to buy some more lo-cal lemon lozenges to put in my mouth when the head hunger comes knocking at my door.

None of us are perfect....as you said, " one day at a time" you've done it before, and you can do it again!!!
