I had my surgery in May 2014. I have slowly gained 50 lbs back of the 125 lbs that I originally lost. How can I shrink my stomach and lose this weight? Any help is appreciated.

Are you still on lifetime care with your bariatric office? Maybe the nutritionists there might have some advice. I see articles about pouch reset diets and going 1 or 2 weeks on liquids only and then back to 600-800 calories a day like you did right after surgery. Maybe that'll help? Good luck.

here's the thing....you gotta address the disease of obesity....the noise in your head that pollutes your determination to be (& enjoy) good health.

A 50 lb gain suggests you're "off program". It's a symptom of your disease of obesity.

Make appointment for follow-up. Speak w nutritionist in bariatric program. Weekly weigh ins @ the surgeon's office doesn't require an appointment, & makes you accountable. Get to support group.

There's no shame in the struggle. Anyone posting here has been & is, in the same boat.

For me it's my disease of compulsive over eating. Despite my WLS I still have the disease and I struggle with it every day.

I go to a therapist who recommended Over eaters Anonymous (OA). It's patterned after Alcohol Anonymous (AA) and I also attend monthly group meetings sponsored by my surgeon. With OA I have a group of people I can call or text if I feel that I will eat something not on my food plan and they offer me constructive support. There are those that can stop eating when ever they want I can't I need to constantly work on it. One day at a time. Seek help and build on your past success. Good Luck.

Congrats on all that work. Sincerely.

You're right, struggle is ongoing.

My path has been similar. Indeed: 1 day @ a time.
