Two and a Half Years Post Surgery



Recommended Posts

Just curious if there is anyone out there who is two years or more post surgery. I'm gaining and quite sure that I have stretched my tiny stomach. I need strategies to turn this around and refocus on my original goals! If you're out there...What is working for you???

It's a new year. This is a perfect time to recommit to your plan. A great place to start is joining the January 2019 weight loss challenge. Thanks @GreenTealael for creating it.

I had my first gain in my third year. I got complacent with my diet. (Extra calories, carbs and old habits) I went back to basics and worked back to my maintaining weight. Four years out and I have gained during the holidays. I am back in weight loss mode working it down. It's slow but I'll take it.

I definitely slacked over the holidays...trying to get back on track now!

Easily gained 5lbs☹

Back to healthy eating and exercise every day!

You got this! Good luck!

Funky_Monkey 800,

Thanks for the encouragement. You did great reaching your goal! In 2 1/2 years, I still have not met my goal. I came close and got discouraged when nothing happened! I had a plateau that lasted for months with lots of back and forth gains and losses. Complacency is the easy route...and it happened. Like you said...old habits crept in. Man, did I enjoy the holidays! I'm going to try to reduce the carbs again, make sure my Protein portions are reasonable, green stuff should take up the largest portion of my "small" plate, walk more, and go to the gym! I can do this. As you age, it really is a "do it or die" situation.
