I am about 15 months out and I have gained 6lbs. I'm so depressed I can't even begin to explain. Family problems and running around with the kids has really done a number on me. I'm frightened that the sleeve is no longer working and I will regain everything again.

Take charge! I too after 15 months had gained 7 pounds back. Its so easy to do. But now I took charge and cut my cals by a few hundred per day and started working out and am back down to where I was.... I am even trying to lose an additional 10 pounds. YOU CAN DO THIS!

1.) focus on Water between meals. get 64 or more ounces for sure

2.) when you wanna snack go for veggies and low fat dip, or high Protein low cal foods like tuna and cottage cheese.

3.) burn extra calories every day working out, walking more, taking the stairs, just move more!

you can take charge... don't give up, and on the bright side its only 6 pounds.... set your goal to lose 1 pound per week. :-) I am with ya!

The good news is: You caught it! Now let's get back on track and get it off. This is a life time change and so be diligent about eating healthy and exercising. Read the book by David Kessler called "No more overeating." It will enlighten you as to the reasons behind our food addictions....... :) You've got this and Sleeve of Steel has given you the best advice her........... :)

All my skinny friends gain a bit of weight & then they work on losing it right away. I hear them say "I gained 5 lbs on my cruise so now I'm working on losing it" & they do. If I had done that for every 5 lbs I gained on vacation, over a holiday, over a crisis, over a joyous occasion, etc...I wouldn't be on this board! I'd be out living my life as a slim healthy person. So while I'm sitting here pre-op at nearly 300 lbs, I'd just like to encourage you to take charge NOW so you won't return to looking like someone like me! That's what I plan to do once I get my weight off. Wishing you the best!

Don't be too hard on yourself!!! The great thing is that you're recognizing it!! I'm 17 months out and have been stalled for almost 5 months (and have been fluctuating 3-4 pounds up and down). I had to take a long hard look at myself...it was eye opening to say the least!! I would not consider 6 lbs a a real "gain". Look on the bright side, it's not 10 pounds...or 15...or 20!!!

I think there are a lot of us here that are working to get back on track. For me, it's just about tracking....when I start tracking, my nutrition improves. Figure out what you need to get yourself back on track and make that a priority.

You're not alone in your struggle, but you're the only one that can figure out why you're struggling!!!

And.....never, never, never give up!!!!
