I'm new too. I am 9 yrs out from RNY . I was 410 when I started the process. I went all the way down to 160 I think. I thought I looked anorexic I went back up to 200 that is where I felt most comfortable. But now I'm at 225 or so and miserable. I have been sick for months because of not eating right and not taking my supplements. Trying to get back on track that is one of the reasons I have reached out to find some support.

Hi ladies...I joined few days ago...in the same boat as y'all.

I am almost 7 yrs out RNY 2/19/08

I started out at 277 , got down to 132 ( looked way to thin and sickly) so I went up to 140 and was healthy looking and comfortable...maintained my weight until we moved from California to Indiana a year and half ago and lost control,gained 34 lbs now I have been working to get my weight back down ,get back on track with my Vitamins and supplements cuz I am very anemic and Vitamin D deficient.

So far I have lost a few lbs. And do Zumba at my YMCA when I can otherwise my biggest Loser DVD at home and getting better with a vitamin/supplement schedule... would like a buddy.

I made an appointment with the dietitian I have to wait 2 weeks but I am beginning to get back on track today. I'm also going to write down every thing I eat and drink because they always ask and I can never come up with a typical day.

Morning Ladies :) Hope y'all have a great day!!

I haven't kept a scale in my house in a long time, I would just weigh myself at the dr office or the YMCA before workouts. Well I gave in and got a scale yesterday... I plan to do weekly or bi weekly weigh in at home...I have noticed my size 12 jeans were loose on me but my size 10 jeans are still snug and a little uncomfortable to move around in.

Keep telling myself baby steps, you will get there! My last December weigh in was 174, My first weigh in for January was 172, weighed myself yesterday (1/14/15 ) at 164....so far I am down 10 lbs and have 24 more to lose to get to goal weight of 140.

Right now the hardest part is remembering to take my Vitamins during the day and making sure I am drinking enough Water.< /p> Edited by navy2mom

Mtrevask I face the same problem I work Monday through Friday 8 to 5 pm. When I get home I have a busy schedule between my 2 try old and my husband it is hard to cook his food then mine. .. we do not eat the same... he eats fatty Mexican food with tortillas and all.... I can not afford to eat like him. .. so I go to Kroger and buy perfect fit meals for the week and plan my meals like that.

      Well, long time no see. 
      It's been a rough couple of weeks. I should have been expecting the other shoe to drop after having it so easy for the first three weeks post op. I was getting my water and protein easily, had no pain, nausea, or vomiting.
      But as soon as the soft foods really started in earnest I started having problems. Pain, foamies, slimeys, vomiting galore. There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to it. Something that I ate easily yesterday causes pain and vomiting after the first bite today. Sometimes it's my pills, other times they go down easy. I just don't get it. 
      I'm trying to stay positive. I know this is a season in my life, and things will eventually even out. I'm just so tired of being afraid to eat, not knowing what kind of response my body will have. I'm mostly hitting my protein target, thanks in large part to protein shakes (which I hate, but look at as medicine). I missed my water targets by a lot over the weekend, due mostly to feeling awful, which I know is a terrible cycle... throw up, don't feel like drinking anything, get dehydrated, get constipated, feel like crap, repeat. 
      The three-week stall is also still here. I thought I had busted through it, but I've been bouncing between 216-219 for the last two and a half weeks, which is a contributing factor to my mood and frustration level. And add in wee-lings who are going crazy with end of the school year insanity, friends with busy schedules who I haven't been able to see in weeks, and I'm an unhappy girl. 
      Things will turn around. I know they will. Just not feeling it at this moment.

      I saw the post where you were denied the first time because you lost to much weight.  How much did you lose?  I lost 1 # my 2nd month and 6# my third month and scared to death I have screwed up.  
       
      Thanks

        I lost 11% of my body weight and they wanted me to fail to lose 10%. I even called the insurance company and asked them to clarify because the wording was confusing. I didn't know if they wanted me to lose the 10% or fail to lose the 10%. I was told to lose 10% so I did and apparently the person that I spoke to wasn't correct. But also this was in December and my company was scheduled to change to a different division of BCBS after the first of the year. So that probably played more into the denial than anything.

        I continued my monthly visits and they clearly showed that I plateaued about month 5/6 and began to regain. I originally lost from 333 to 298 and regained back up to 330 but have now lost back down to 318.

      One week post-revision, down 5 lbs since surgery day.....which puts me back under 300. VICTORY!!! Still a ways to go but I'll take every little win I can get. Feeling great other than minor abdominal discomfort.
