    Thought I would post an update! I decided to go with the bypass. In the long run I think I will find the most benefit from the surgery because of its effects on diabetes. I got a call from my surgeons office and my surgery is tentatively scheduled for March 19!

    Back on Track

    @Sullie06 stop kicking yourself (you'll get black & blue!) you are doing everything correctly to get back on track. kudos for realizing you are in trouble - stopping before 10 lbs turns into 20, 30 etc logging everything you eat, counting calories, eating less, exercising, seeking support groups et al you must STOP eating incorrectly - go back to the olden days of smaller portions, less calories etc knowing the problem is half the solution,☺️ congrats on reaching GOAL earlier - i know you will get back their again!! good luck kathy

    Weight loss avg

    Thanks to all of you for the responses! I realize I didn't offer any info on myself. I'm not the most patient person in the world. I am feeling better about things. It's been about a 20lb loss in the first month or so. I kept hearing stories of 50lbs in the first month but never took into consideration all of the variables.

    what's the worse things about bypass

    There were the same stories about hair loss with the band. Some lose it , some don't.

    Help! Am I CrAzY?!

    I would say if you are steady in weight that you might not want to do this? I don't know your BMI but in the Netherlands the minimum for a gastric bypass/sleeve is 35 with co-morbidities or 40 without. If your lap band is giving you problems, you can consider it, but I wouldn't expect too much weight loss after? Good luck either way

    How often to snack???

    I was told to have my 3 meals a day and snack 2 times a day once 2 hours after breakfast and once 2 hours after lunch. If I still haven't eaten all of my protein or my calorie goal I can have one at 8pm for bed but most days I find that hard.

    Back on Track

    The past 6 months have been hard and I've completely gotten off track. I hit maintenance at about 15 months post op and was maintaining at 180-182 pounds. I was happy with that and my doctor was to since I was within 5 pounds of my goal. Well I got complacent and allowed old habits back in and I've gained 10 pounds in the last 6 months. I decided part of getting back on track is getting my support system back so I'm logging back in here and going to meetings again locally. I've started tracking food again and I'm back exercising. The hardest part has been snacking. I tracked my daily log a few weeks ago and I was eating so much because I was just snacking way to much. I'm back down to 1,000-1200 calories a day per my NUT suggestion. Its so hard but I know I can do it. I'm hoping to get plastic surgery in the near future so that is my goal.

    I had my surgery on February 15 & I’ve already lost 17lbs. So far no issues with nausea or vomiting. So far so good. If I keep this up I’ll be in my swimsuit by summer!🤗👙

    That sounds too much. Maybe u should do research first n try a diff psyh. Asking prices first. I just had my psyh. Eval done and i was with this dr only 10 min and he is highly recomended by my surgeon. Yes just 10 min. I was sooo happy. Sent from my LGMS210 using BariatricPal mobile app
