Checking in ... 4.5 years out



Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Just went to my annual appointment with surgeon and realized I’ve not checked in here in quite some time.

I’m now holding at 10 pounds above My lowest weight, which has been the case for several years. However, During the winter I gained 6 pounds and attributed this to increased snacking on Cereal. Then, I got the flu and lost 10 pounds. Interestingly, after getting better I decided to stop the cereal snacking and have ended up back at the same weight I’ve been at for about 3 years.

Hoping to continue maintaining at this level. Still weighing and logging...

Regards,

Andrew

Hi Kathy,

I'm glad to hear that you're well...

The challenges never cease. While I've been able to maintain, it's still a lot of work. I got a taste of rapid weight gain after allowing my cereal snacking to get out control.

I've been slacking a little on my exercising lately due to being very busy with work and need to get that back on track.

Keep fighting the fight...

Andrew

Congratulations on maintaining at that level. Had my 2 year a few weeks ago and my surgeon said most people gain between 10 and 20 between 2 and 5 years out. I consider 10 a win. Thank you for sharing, it's nice to hear from veterans like yourself on how you are doing. I am reading about Vitamin deficiencies a few years out and would love to get more information on how people are doing with their lab work at 4/5 years and on.

My Husband and I are almost 5 years Out (Oct) and we take a multi and Vitamin D every morning. I also have to take Iron. We have just had our blood tests done and everything is fine but need to continue with what we are taking
