1 1/2 years out and gaining weight



Recommended Posts

I am under a lot of stress and have gained 15 pounds in 2 months. I know I am snacking way too much and not eating right but I can't seem to "diet". I feel like I am right back where I started. How do I get back on track? I eat mostly at night but lately, it has been all day long!

Hey Carol:

Check out the Vet's forum, there are various posts about getting back on track, maintaining, etc. more geared to those further out in this process.

I'm sure they have a unique perspective and advise.

Good luck and be well.

Your post is exactly why I'm back on this forum. I so frustrated and angry with myself. I've gained 12 pounds in the last 5 months. I'm 45 pounds from my goals weight... and I'm so scared that I'm going to gain all my weight back. It is absolutely terrifying to me. Life has been throwing me a lot of curveballs lately, and I resorted back to bad eating habits to cope. And I know that... in the moment I don't care, then after I'm like... WHY DID YOU DO THAT!?

I will go track down the Vet's forum myself. I'm not sure how I like this combined site thing. Especially since I had an add pop up while I was looking around the site. That is not really a good thing.

I can relate also! I had surgery May 2012...I just passed my 1-1/2 year mark and I've somehow gained 20 lbs back in 3 months. I am no where close to my goal and just really....disappointed in myself. I still have 70 pounds to go and I'm wondering if my VSG-surgery is still going to help me get there. I'm terrified of gaining more back. Guess I'll go cruise the "veteran forums" for tips on what to do....

First, you can't hate yourself thin.

Have a real heart to heart with yourself about why you can't get the eating under control.

Consider therapy. It helps a lot of people, myself included.

Look at the 5:2 eating thread in the vets forum. It's worked for a lot of people.

Make a plan. Get the bad foods out of the house. Buy the heathy foods you like and put them in portion controlled packages so they are grab and go.

Eat solid Protein first, cut the carbs and drink your Water.

Buy yourself a present, you deserve it!

Everyone's journey is different. Don't compare yourself to others.

I know how you all feel, I have gained about 15-20 pounds, it's so frustrating because I always told myself that once I had this surgery I wouldn't go back to my old eating habits.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
