The easy answer is this:

When you stop doing what worked before, it doesn't work anymore.

When you stop:

Eating Protein first

Drinking at least 64 oz of no calorie, low calorie fluids

Limiting sugar, white carbohydrates, and calorie laden drinks

Moving more than sitting

Not drinking with meals

Eating mostly fresh, non processed food

Eating tons of colored veggies

Weighing yourself to hold yourself accountable

you will gain.

Pretty much it in a nutshell.

I gained 12 this last year. That's why I'm doing my 6 week 20 pound challenge. I'm going to have to work and sacrifice to get it off, and I think I can do even better by getting my focus back on my health again. It helps my girl friend is joining me on this Quest.

Have you recently had complete lab work done? Conditions like PCOS can substantially increase your craving for sugar and carbs. A Vitamin D deficiency can diminish your energy. I'd systematically rule out any potential medical contributors, as well as analyze your lifestyle habits. For me, keeping track of what I eat and drink on MyFitnessPal has been really helpful with making me more mindful of what I'm eating in a day.

Thank you for being so honest. I'm concerned about the weight gain years down the road...it's a true reality....

Studies show after year 4 there is an expected regain as your body normalize to the drastic loss.

What you left out is the mental aspect. Fear and hope were motivators. You get comfortable. You lose and feel good. You forget the struggle.

Like most women who have experienced childbirth. You forget the pain until you are pregnant again lol They joy of a new body. For some a new life. You forget about your struggle until the scale or your body starts to remind you.

That is true I say Now I get cocky when I lose weight and then it comes back. But I am so ready for this I believe I will keep it off. I think of it like this. If someone came and got me all set up paid all my bills gave me a good job and all new stuff and all I have to do is keep it up and it is all mine. U bet ur butt I would and that's what I think about weight loss surgery.

Only 5-10%. My hubby gained 20, but still felt good under 200 so and he's kept the rest off for 10 years.

You gain it all back?

We have TOTAL AND COMPLETE control of that. Don't think we don't.

Seems to me, I have to work on the trilogy of Protein, Water and moving.

After 10 years, I'm still so thankful for my band. And

I work hard on this lifestyle .... I may not always

Do well.... cocktails or sweets seem to be my nemesis... but dang it, I try.

Almost all the time, I try.

No more " I'm not thinking about my daily intake"

More : patterns of behavior that work in the long run.

Ps if there was a box of sees candy in front of me... I'd totally eat it.

A lot of my battle is what gets brought into the house!

It has to be our main focus at all times!! What we eat, how we eat it, how much are we exercising? The WLS as we all know (we are not newbies) is a work in progress. When and I'm speaking of myself as when we let our guard down well we all know what happens. This is one of my biggest fears!! WEIGHT REGAIN I don't want to be a statistic!! This is why I am so glad I didn't have the means to have WLS when I first tried. I had to grow up and try try again!! Failure was my middle name. Yes we all face things every day, people just don't stop buying stuff and eating it in front of us, because we had WLS. I feel for you!! It is one of the hardest things to do. But...if you want it YOU CAN and WILL DO IT!!! Start now!! You have lots of people right here with you!!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
