hi everyone... long time no check in.

**sighs** bubs is now 5 mts old and an absolute treasure!!! as for my weight... PFFFTTTTTT i was breast feeding for a few months but it wasnt enough. she was crying all the time as she was hungry... the very first night she got a bottle she slept all night.... and i got the first good night sleep in 2 months. the thing is while i was pregnant i was being told to eat a bit more which i have apparently become accustom to and now am totally struggling with. i lost weight for the first 2 weeks after my baby was born and have been mostly gaining since. its not a lot of weight but more than enough to stress the hell out of me and start the whole weight tug of war again. its like my body is use to the sleeve and the intake and now without the demands of a baby, on goes the weight!

i found while i was breast feeding and awake wayyyy more than i should of been, i was actively seeking sweeter foods which i found weird after not wanting any sweets during pregnancy???? i have to try and get back to what i was doing early sleeve. 16 months post op and my weight is like a crash with me in it!!! so upset with myself for not being able to control what the hell is going on. after all this time it seems i am still battleing fat demonds!!! do the ever go away??? what makes us slowly revert back even tho we have come so far.

it seems i mentally may be a fat person all my life. **sighs** even sadder is i have come so far losing over 130 pounds (60kg) but still am nowhere near my goal weight!!

yes my weight loss was excelent through my pregnancy after sleeve and yes i am battleing now from pregnancy issues.... and self control issues.i wonder if having to eat more durring pregnancy has ruined me now or this was just the normal cource of the sleeve maybe/hopefully its just a platto and all will start up again.... who knows!!!

till soon

Ange.

A big hug for you Ange!!! I haven't been on in forever either, but I just read your post and had to reply. You are such a SUCCESS! 130 pounds gone is AMAZING. You should feel so proud. Yes, I think those old fat demons are still with me too. I felt I got too skinny (was not happy with how I looked) and allowed too many of my old bad food habits to creep back in and easily gained the 5 pounds I wanted to...unfortunately another 5 creeped back on right after the first 5:-( Something that has helped me get back on track (sort of) is joining an in person wls support group and attending pretty regularly (until the last month or so). I'm sure it's difficult with a baby, but maybe there is one in your area.

Okay, this turned a bit longer than I planned:-) I just wanted you to know that you are a success!

Happy Holidays!
