Absolutely!!! But you know how we always heard that the last 5-10 pounds were the hardest to lose? We laughed at the thought of only needing to lose 5 pounds, right? Well on maintenance, that's exactly where we are. When a few pounds come on, it's a whole lot harder to get them back off. I've been fighting with the same 5-7 pounds for months now. Some days I'm winning, and some days I'm losing....... but it's a much better battle than the one I used to fight!!!!!

Same here! - 5 to 7lbs - I am going to do a restart starting this weekend, I have softball championship (local fun league) tonight, so need to be on point, but Friday I am going to start from the pre-op Protein shake diet for 5 days and see where that gets me... I get so scared when I see the scale go up, I am active but not religious about exercise (I prefer fun things like this softball league over "working out"), so I can kick it into high gear and see what results I can get. After 5 days I will go into early foods and then back to normal food. I am hoping this will help me reinforce the good habits this surgery has supported...

We all know what to do, right? Detox from starches and sweets and then avoid them. Five days of Liquid Protein will be a challenge. But allow yourself as many shakes as it takes to keep you satisfied, don't hold back. And keep in mind that the weight loss might not happen right away, your metabolism may need to reset before you start losing again. Good luck – You can do this!!!
