7 year veteran slowly gaining weight.....HELP!



Recommended Posts

Almost everyone that I know that has had this surgery has put weight back on within a couple of years. Main excuse is they are not committed enough to stay on a maintenance diet.

Are you talking about the DS?!! My understanding is that it is the very best there is for maintaining and keeping the weight off.

Let me add my 2 cents here. Anything worth having is worth making time for. Although supplementation is great, getting quality Protein in is key. I hate cooking by all means. Therefore, I suck it up and do all of my meal prep on Sundays. I'm 6 years out. Started at 385 and now fluctuate between 173 and 177. I'm currently working to hit my goal of 160. I attribute it to ensuring I get quality Protein in and having something accessible throughout the day. Plus I bust my tail at the gym. Do I indulge? Hell yeah. On the weekends I may go to IHOP with kids or enjoy a naughty meal at the movies with the family. Life is about balance and finding what works. When I gained 20lbs at year 5 I knew I was at the point where I had to put in work just like my thinner peers. Surgery is a tool not the solution. You over eat, you gain. You under eat, you stall. Also remember, consistency. If you're looking for that over night weight loss that you had in beginning, hang it up. It's time to go to work. Be consistent, throw the scale out and trust the process. You will see the results.

With Love

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
