Hello, My name is Martha and I had Ds surgery back in 2012, I am really disappointed myself as i was close to 400(362 lbs) . I went all the way down to 240 I started jogging, exercising life was amazing, I ended up with an emergency hysterectomy that had to be done via c section which put me on my back for over 2 months then it got infected etc... jogging was out habits came back. I am now at a high 177 and super depressed. How to deal with it is really hard, any suggestions??

Hi Martha,

I’m Crystal. I had my DS February last year. So I don’t have much experience for long term success. So what I gathered is from your recovery from hysterectomy and infection that your current weight is approximately 177 lbs? What was your lowest weight? Martha, as a healthcare worker I can say I’m glad that you are better. I would just first realized that you are still not where you were. You can get back to where you are comfortable happy and complete. Your are at a good starting point and you have to stay positive. I would visit a Bariatric nutritionist for tips on how to get back. Return to the gym get a personal trainer if it’s in your budget and start out slow and work your way up. Also, the liver reduction diet might be a great way to jump start your body. But I’m not a professional and I would encourage you to seek advice from a medical professional. 😉. I hope I helped and didn’t hinder.

Thank you Crystal for responding, I just spoke to someone at the hospital and explained my situation after explaining about the hysterectomy via Csection, they suspect that perhaps something has been moved so they can go in and do a biopsy to determine if that happened and if so then they can if insurance covers a reset. I pray that it goes through, it will get me back on track and then I need to remove all this hanging gross skin in my middle.

Thanks again and I hope you are recovering, Tip do not get over confident on being able to eat everything. You will gain weight back so do not make the same mistake that I did, stick to the Protein and liquid diet and keep taking the vitamines, trust me on this. I got arrogant and now am paying for it.

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
