So sorry to hear this. Have you tried going back to the type of eating that made you successful in the first place? I know that's easier said than done, but it's a place to start. Maybe even start with a 1500/cal/day diet or a two week liquid diet to get you started back toward weight-loss. You don't want it to keep creeping up. Take care.

I'm sure you are frustrated. Reality , Any one of us can gain.

Have you contacted your surgeons office/dieticain? They may have some good advice on getting back on track and ruling out medical issues. Counseloing/therapy is an option to fight the mental side of weight loss.

You already know your baraitric plan. Time to put it into acction before 210 becomes 240, 260 or 300

  • Get rid of temptation food and go shoping for healthy whole foods. Get healthy options for sweet and salty cravings.
  • Being off plan your body is used to the extra calories carbs and sugars. You will feel crappy as you detox off them and get your body back in to weight loss mode. Embrace the suck! it will get better once you are consistant and back in your weight loss zone
  • Log and weigh your food,
  • hydrate and exercise.

We also have a group weight loss challenge. Its a good way to support each other as we lose weight

I was wondering if anyone out there is experiencing the same thing.

Your not the first person that has experienced a gain.

A while back I did but they were saying the same thing. “Just go back to eating like you did when you were losing “. Right🙄

Going back to basics, keto and weight watchers did not work for you. It may be time to seek counseling.

This is just an observation talking with people over the years. Many of us have eatting disorders pre surgery. It's not suprising to find some have them post surgery.

Maybe start seeing the nutritionist again so that she can give you some tips to help you get back on track, I know it's hard but you gotta start somewhere and take it one day at a time. You can do it, you did it before, it's just getting motivated again so get the help that you need to get you back on track.

Keep in touch with this site, you will find lots of motivation and tips as well...you may just read that one thing that makes a bell go off in your head like YES I can do this.

I wish you the best ((Hugs))

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
