    EddieS reacted to Danny Paul in What I've Learned Three Years Post Sleeve   
    Later this week It will be three years since my sleeve surgery and this is what I've learned. The surgery gave me hope and a jump start to rapid weight loss and better health. That's it. Nothing magical to it, you lose a good portion of your stomach therefore you eat less and you lose weight. I learned that without any work on my part the weight came off rapidly and in eight months I was at my goal weight. Now, here is the most important lesson out of this whole process, ( need to capitalize this) THE HARD WORK IS MAINTAINING THE WEIGHT LOSS. Since April of 2018 I have been struggling daily to maintain that weight loss and to stay at my goal weight. For those of you who have had long term success you are truly the best and you should be proud of your accomplishment. Early July I saw that I had a weight gain of eight pounds. I redoubled my efforts and was able to lose 4 1/2 pounds in three weeks. I am still struggling to lose the other 4 1/2 lbs. So, to date I am 4 1/2 lbs above my goal weight. I don't consider that a good thing. For the first time since my surgery three years ago I am forced to work twice as hard to lose weight rather and to maintain my goal weight . I'm still ahead of the game being so much healthier.
    To those who have recently experienced the euphoria of weight loss and better health after surgery. Enjoy it, embrace it and most of all keep in mind that it can be lost if you are not vigilant in your maintenance. I wish everyone the best of health and the best of success in your weight loss journey.

    EddieS got a reaction from Takoda in June 2020 surgeries   
    I'm scheduled for June 16th. It's still possible that it'll be postponed at the last minute though, since CA is still doing scheduled surgeries very sparingly due to COVID. Things are trending in the right direction though, so I'm hoping by mid June hospitals will be more or less back in the swing of things and I'll be able to keep the date. Fingers crossed!

    You are giving people bad information about the bypass when it was your 2nd surgery not your first.
    I had the RNY BYPASS and had not one issue and below my goal weight already and doing amazing!!
