I had gastric sleeve on April 29, 2013. In September 2015, I gave birth to a very premature baby boy, who lived in the NICU for 6 months before he passed away.

During that 6 months, I didn’t eat. I drank so much coffee, and I had 1 sugar in each coffee. As you can imagine, I gained.

I found out I was pregnant again 8 weeks after my son passed away.

During that year and a half I gained back about 70 pounds. I have been trying to get back on track, but I can’t do it. My head just isn’t in the game anymore so to say.

Yes, I still have 100lbs off, but I want to be where I once was.

Has anyone else been in the same situation and got back on track?

Reach out to. a Bariatric consultant, I think perhaps will help you get more of your motivation back. So sorry about your son, losing a child is one of the hardest things to live through

I think going to a counselor of some kind could be greatly beneficial to you. Both to address your grief and any possible eating disorders you might have. I'm so sorry for the loss of your son.

I'm so sorry about your son. I can't imagine your pain. I think you really need to work with a counselor to sort out your feelings. None of these surgeries work if your head isn't in the game. Please check in and let us know how you're doing.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
