Back on Track



Recommended Posts

The past 6 months have been hard and I've completely gotten off track. I hit maintenance at about 15 months post op and was maintaining at 180-182 pounds. I was happy with that and my doctor was to since I was within 5 pounds of my goal. Well I got complacent and allowed old habits back in and I've gained 10 pounds in the last 6 months. I decided part of getting back on track is getting my support system back so I'm logging back in here and going to meetings again locally. I've started tracking food again and I'm back exercising. The hardest part has been snacking. I tracked my daily log a few weeks ago and I was eating so much because I was just snacking way to much. I'm back down to 1,000-1200 calories a day per my NUT suggestion. Its so hard but I know I can do it. I'm hoping to get plastic surgery in the near future so that is my goal.

@Sullie06

stop kicking yourself (you'll get black & blue!) you are doing everything correctly to get back on track.

kudos for realizing you are in trouble - stopping before 10 lbs turns into 20, 30 etc

logging everything you eat, counting calories, eating less, exercising, seeking support groups et al

you must STOP eating incorrectly - go back to the olden days of smaller portions, less calories etc

knowing the problem is half the solution,☺️

congrats on reaching GOAL earlier - i know you will get back their again!!

good luck

That's very important. Realizing that you're having a weight gain problem and working on it as soon as you can. You seem to have it under control. Keep us posted. Good Luck.
