help with regain



Recommended Posts

Having problems with regain several years post-op. Lost 72lb. Was 160 at lowest point but have gained 20 over past 2 years regardless of exercise, adequate Protein intake, Water consumption, following the program!! Very frustrated and clothing too tight (refuse to get bigger size from what I was wearing).....What can I do to lose this or at least STOP the gain!!!

Gains are frustrating!

Some options to think about.

Make an appointment with your surgeons team. Great time for a check up. (blood labs and all) ask it there is a medical reason for not having weight loss.

Your dietician. They should help you dial in your diet where your body starts losing weight again.(its different for each of us years out)

My personal experience with weight gain years out:

My restriction is not the same. it's a normal experience for my type of surgery. My weight starting going up and it was harder and slow to lose

I had to weigh and log food again. I found what calories and Protein goal puts me back into weight loss mode. Painfully slow.... at best 2 pounds a month..But I will take it.

I'm back up again..uggg mine was indulgence of food..Takes nothing for me to gain now...I know I can get it back to where I'm comfortable. it's just at a snail's pace.

Possible? Yeah...

Common or likely? No. It’s usually not being aware and creep of choices or portions.

NOT saying this is true of the OP, just what’s more typical.

Tracking and weighing or measuring will usually help ya find the culprit. Eyeballing portions can be accurate when we’ve been weighing but when we haven’t it’s not as accurate.

Oh also it takes fewer and fewer calories to maintain as we loss. A 150lb body may maintain at 1200 calories while a 200lb body loses. So constant course correction is necessary

Ok because it sounds like even on plan there is just regain , so I was puzzled
Is that not really likely?
Can someone please have a real open discussion about regain and prevention. Pretty please ?

      NSV today. I have been wearing my size 26 jeans which have been getting roomy. So today I decided to try on my size 24 Lane Bryant jeans and see if I could get into them. Not only can I get into them, they are also loose. That made me feel super happy this morning. Weight is still 243 but the inches are definitely moving.

      Tried a few bites of pasta (protein-enriched penne) tonight. No foamies or anything, but didn't sit well. I'm sad about it, but at least now I know and can move on to trying other things, maybe revisit it when I'm further out.

      This is going to sound really freaking weird but I feel like I am in the twilight zone ... like this is all a bad dream I am going (or hoping) to wake up from. I hate food! I mean I fscking hate it! It tastes like saw dust ... I am never hungry and never have a desire to eat. Eating hurts and no one knows really WTF is going on. I mean they think the cause of this is the stomach ulcer but what if all this stuff heals up and I am still messed up? I am down 60 pounds and almost 6" from my heaviest but I could care less. I sleep but it feels like I get none at all. When I wake up even though my stupid CPAP says, "Hey dumbass! You had less than 1 apnea an hour. GTFU!" It's supposed to be really easy to find work because unemployment is low, yet I keep getting turned down for work. At this point, I am like what next?

      My surgery is May 30, 2018 and I can not take this 2 weeks pre-op liquid, very hard and my shakes that I got from my doctors office has a funny taste.  What kind of shakes are you drinking for pre op

        I have the Premier Protein Water which I still have to water down to be able to stomach it. I would rather be on full clear liquid (which starts tomorrow!)
