I am 4.5 years post SLEEEVE. I had lost a total of 90# and felt great. Over the past 1.5 years I had gained half of it back. RIght now I would be happy losing 25#. Part of the reason for the regain was that I wasn't getting enough Synthroid (I have no thyroid) and part is medication and part is I have no OFF button. I can do great all day and between 7-10 PM I can't stop, Another problem is that an hour after I eat, I'm hungry. Yes I am getting enough Protein. I'm sick of regain and I'm sick of never feeling satisfied. Has anyone had experience with this and was able to lose?

I would recommend going back to your post surgical protocol. Hitting your Water, Protein, Vitamins and 10K steps goal. That's what I keep doing, going back to the Stage 3 numbers. I also do a low carb high protein diet and now either do an hour of boot camp a day or get my 10K steps in. 60oz water, 90oz protein, 10K steps, Vitamins. That's what I focus on. I don't' know if this will help but it's the only advise I have.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!! I know you can do this, with commitment to the protocol you were successful before, you will be successful again!!!!!!!

Not having enough thyroid will do this. Make sure you get your meds and regular monitoring. Having your thyroid level out of whack will mess with all your hard work, particularly if your thyroid has been removed. Make it a priority. Being low on thyroid will trigger hunger...which is why your off switch is stuck:( Address the thyroid first.

If you're hungry an hour after you eat...you might be eating too many high glycemic index carbs...like white bread, white rice, refined sugar and flour.

When you eat these delicious little jerks.....they hit your blood stream super fast....and your pancreas compensates by producing a ton of insulin really fast. The insulin balances the sugar and then has some left over...so now your body is going....we have too much insulin...must eat, must find sugar! And you end up hungry again. And around and around you go. It's a very vicious cycle.

Try to watch refined high glycemic carbs to avoid the boomerang hunger:)

I am 3 years out and have regained most of my weight. I had lost 70# and regained 45#. I am so addicted to sugar and am struggling to get back on track. I’m afraid I have stretched my stomach back out. I feel so discouraged!!

I'm starting weight watchers and seeing a nutritionist Friday. I love sugar.

Are you hungry or do you have an appetite?

If you never feel satisfied - do you eat the foods you really want to eat or the foods you feel you should eat?

We are 2 peas in the same pod hunny[emoji173]️
It’s hard when we regain. And mentally it’s crushing. My hours are 9-1am where I am the most out of control. I work 3-11 and manage to fool my coworkers with my healthier choices. Most of the time I want what I bring, but when I get home my family is all asleep and I’ve got the reigns. Sad actually [emoji24]
I was getting pissed at the “ do the pouch reset”. Really? To me that was a bunch of BS,,we don’t have a pouch. But, I eat way to fast. Nursing and a 1/2 hour break? Ya right lol so I’ve eaten fast for ever. Two young kids? Ya, I eat at the counter lol. But I tried slowing down, it’s actually working. For some reason my excuses out weigh my wants for weighloss. But I said “ I’ll start with a salad a day Jan 1”. It’s been nice, so I’m hoping it will all fall into place. One day at a time. Keep us posted, I’m sure I’ll be back to post[emoji173]️
Best of luck,
Tracy
