Best to keep though in mind that vets who weren't able to keep the weight off don't tend to hang around WLS boards, let alone post a lot.

For those vets have yall been able to keep most of the weight off?
I will be 5 years post this fall...lost 185 lbs. I gained 15 lbs in the last 6 months (totally my fault lol) and I am working it off now.

I have worked hard for years.
Knowing it’s a different lifestyle...
you might be hungry for a few hours. You might not want to move much... but it works. And Water. Still hard for me. Protein Shakes help me a lot
Best to all that try! It is a lifestyle balance for me

Almost to my 6 year sleeve procedure. I have started back on this site to help me loose the 40 lbs that I have regained in this past very stressful year.

I’m 51/2 years out and have only just checked in today after about 8months.
Struggling with a 15lbs increase not a huge amount but definitely over my danger weight of 143lbs. My vanity goal weight has always been 132lbs which I have probably only achieved a handful of times, generally just before we go on holidays. So that I give myself some wiggle room for a bit of relaxed eating which I tend to do when on holidays.
I try never to let myself go above 143lbs as a rule. I can usually get back on track just by being mindful of what I’m eating and logging all my food into my fitness pal but struggling this time around.
I have only ever stuck to the rule of walking 10,000 steps a day and haven’t really added any extra exercise at any point. I started out at 253lbs and reached goal in the first 12 months. So I’m very grateful for where I am but know that once you cross your own danger line things can spiral out of control very quickly.
About 12months ago I was struggling and tried IF and started to look at Keto but life got in the way and everyone and everything in my life became more important than me.
I think I just answered my own question, Gastric Sleeve is a jealous beast and doesn’t like to be ignored. I think if we ignore the rules she set out when we started this journey she will make us pay lol.
Good Luck everyone this isn’t a one size fits all. I know coming back to this site gets my head in the right place and makes me focus on myself. Which I think in my case is a rule I can’t forget or I pay the price.
I’m interested in how others are going this far out.

So true it’s definitely a lightning moment when you understand that it is much work. I went into it thinking it and saying it repeatedly but I don’t think I truly understood it until about 5 years.

I’m going on 12 1/2 years and I still have to be watchful

Do you think you have to be more vigilant than other people your age/weight?

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

        @Orchids&Dragons, thanks! 💚

        Congratulations. I remember that day for me: May 13, 2014. I thought it'd never happen (especially after a 7-day stall at 200.2!!), but it was a "Hallelujah" day! Now...stay on program so you can stay in Onederland. After five years, especially...when ghrelin returns. So stay on track.

        CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!! Onederland is a GREAT place to be.
