I’ve regained ALL the weight back 😢♀️



Recommended Posts

I need your experience people because my weight is spiraling out of control and I’ve loss all hope.

2014 I had the sleeve and was tipping the scales at 136kg

2015 I got down to 97kg and I FINALLY fell pregnant.

2016 I had my son and my weight got up to 118kg and then back down to 106kg through breastfeeding. Unfortunately my milk dried up and since then I’ve continued to eat like a pregnant or breastfeeding mum!

2017 My weight had crept back up to 133kg.

I can eat a fair bit, double cheeseburger, medium fries and some of a coke. I no longer feel that restriction I once had from the surgery. My stomach never rumbles so I’m hoping I haven’t stretched it, I eat because of head hunger.

Will a pouch reset shrink my stomach? And can you please recommend anything else? I’ve even tried hypnotherapy with no success.

Thanking you all.

I'm sorry you are feeling out of control with your weight.

Set up an appointment with your surgeons office. Get their opinion if you have stretched your stomach. They can help you get back on track. Another option to consider is counseling/therapy. It will help address your mindset with weight loss.

food choices and grazing will cause significant weight gain.

Grazing is the consistent, day-long consumption of low value food items, in other words: snacking. For example, mindlessly finishing your child’s Breakfast Cereal, stopping at mcdonalds, popping two donut holes into your mouth at the office, eating a Protein Bar mid-afternoon and a strawberry Greek yogurt with granola at night.

The best way to address grazing after bariatric surgery is to employ preventive measures prior to the onset. That said, many patients will not succeed preemptively and must therefore deal with the problem of grazing only after it presents.

Should you find yourself in the habit of grazing after bariatric surgery, the obvious resolution is to break the habit. This is no doubt easier said than done, but consider all that you have achieved to this point.

The first step is to ask for help. It is unlikely that you can resolve your maladaptive eating alone. So simply ask for the help. Use your support network and those professionals who are currently among your inner circle.

Begin to monitor yourself closely. Write down or log your food in MYFITNESSPAL all that you eat or drink for a period of three days or so, and then compare your notes with the nutrition plan from your bariatric surgeon’s office to note how much they do or do not correlate.

Learn the different types of hunger, specifically head, eating out of boredom and physical hunger.

In addition, cut out all junk food. Sit when you eat, and mindfully enjoy the meal. Eat meals that contain Protein and Fiber in the form of fresh and lightly cooked or raw fruits and vegetables because they make you feel full. Drink plenty of Water over the course of the day except at meal time.

WIshing you the best,

Jenn

Nothing is wrong with eating a Protein Bar. The example above was grazing food all day. One healthy meal won't make up for the total daily calories.

Why do you think you gained the weight? And why would you think a revision would be the answer? Sure, you may lose again with a revision, but it will come right back if you repeat the same behaviors that caused you to gain in the first place.

Just keeping it real.

Aww are they revising your mind? Otherwise I can't see how that will help in the long run. What's stopping you from regaining after a revision.. your still the same person.. I'm confused.

I saw someone online who's had 4 wls surgery's and was seeing if there was anything else she could do as she couldn't control her eating so she wanted another surgery...just think If she used that money for counselling maybe two surgeries ago she would have been successful. So heavy on the surgery being the cure. Our minds are in control. We need to nurture it. Help it grow as we all make mistakes.dont run away from underlying issues. Face them.

I'm not a super hero. I'm trying to help her as I've seen people have a sleeve then another surgery when there is things that need to be resolved. Simple as that . I'm not local though but thanks.

Exactly. Lol your only allowed to have an opinion if you've been sleeveds 10 years. It's pathetic. No ones immune to having problems on this journey. And if a year out I gain the weight I'll take responsibility and face it. I'm not judging anyone . People make themselves feel better to make out like someone under a year can't be right but at the end of the day. It doesn't effect me if someone has 10 surgeries. I have no agenda she can go ahead. But if it was me I'd like a reality check.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
