Saying Goodbye to Easter Candy Is Going to be Tough – Brian’s Blog [SURVEY]

One of the things that you have to give up to be successful after bariatric surgery is sugar. That means candy. Easter candy. This is going to be a long weekend.


Reeses’ Peanut Butter Easter Eggs, Whoppers Robin’s Eggs, solid dark chocolate bunnies, and Marshmallow Peeps. These are all of my favorite Easter candies. Candies that I will have to push away this weekend. Oh, the humanity!

You see, I’ve had a much better than average success rate losing weight after having successful Lap-Band surgery not quite a year ago. I’ve lost nearly 140 pounds, which is not typical for Lap Band patients. Most patients lose at a slower rate, but do hit their goals.

One of the things you have to give up is sugar, so that means no candy, soda pop — even milk, which contains lactose, or milk sugar.

So this weekend, while my family is enjoying their jelly beans, Peeps and various chocolate treats, I’ll be on my best behavior.  It’s either that or extra time on the treadmill.

Instead, I’ll live vicariously through you folks. Take our survey about your favorite Easter candy.
