    I am 4 months out post surgery, Gastric By-pass in Boston Tuffs Medical Center. Great Hospital Great Staff, I have lost 75 pounds and am in a holding paturn. I am conserned I will gain all my weight back as I now seem to crave certain foods I used to eat, sweets are appealing again, just junk foods with no nutritional value is what i look for and than feel hungry and empty all day long. I know I need to start my day wilth protine of some sort to ensure weight loss and feeling good through out the day, its deffinately a head thing as far as eating what you want vs what you need..

    That’s where I went, and my husband too.

    Cravings are harsh. I wake up sometimes THINKING about food.
