I think like any other WLS, with RNY you will get what you put into it.

However, with malaborption lasting 18 months (from what I hear) and the fact your digestive tract has been partically re-routed - the majority of those who have had the surgery will lose the weight and reach their goal within 2 years.

After that time, is when either you have learned a healthier lifestyle and maintain or pick up bad habits and regain. It is entirely up to you at that point whether you lose or gain.

well...we have the surgery to help us not be as hungry and to lose weight but, along with it it's a total mental game. WE fixed our digestive system but, we also need to work on fixing our head - break old habits, figure out what causes us to over eat, learn to mindfully eat...learn to not eat our emotions. I think that's the hardest part of any weightloss surgery but, I'm SO ready for it. I've been working on the mental aspects of it for more than 5 months now and I truly feel it's going to help me with this surgery and after the surgery.

it's true peeps who don't follow through with the eating rules and follow-up post op visits tend to gain it back or sometimes even worse, keep losing weight the unhealthy way. They don't eat their Protein, don't take their Vitamins.....that to me is a risk I'm not willing to take. That to me is someone who didn't do the work prior to having the surgery. Pretty scary.

Do your homework before your surgery......follow the recommendations. WE're not perfect but, we certainly can do the best we can with the tools we have and THAT will make us successful :)

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
