My surgery was January 2012. Just curious how others are doing that are 7 years or more from surgery.

May, 2011 here. I should probably qualify my answers, as per usual, I tend to defy categorization.

1 - yes, at goal with some ups and downs.

2 - I usually go to they gym five days a week, alternating between swimming and a weight circuit, depending upon which is more available crowd-wise. And a hike with the dogs in the woods or up in the canyon every day, weather depending.

3 - I basically do what I did before surgery, which owing to my wife's WLS around six years prior, was/is effectively a WLS maintenance life. I started when she was working up toward her surgery with a strict no-fad-diet regimen - cleaning up the diet as much as possible while being sustainable long term rather than the quickie diet of the day. Best description of it now would be "a bit of everything, not too much of anything" - fundamentally what most any RD would set up for a normal person for good health and weight control. Protein is only what is needed for lean mass maintenance, or about 20% of total, so certainly not "high protein" (though typically in excess of 100g per day) along with lots of fruits and veg and some whole grains.

@TheRealMeIsHere!

boy oh boy, sure are nosey aren't you!🤣

December 15, 2011 - 1rst day of my new improved life!!

i admit that i rarely exercise! (honesty is good for the soul)!!!

i don't measure my food. i eyeball - know my portions, so i

continue to do well. i am in maintenance - up and down a few pounds.

Even though i am doing great, i know i will have to continue to watch/be

careful with the way i eat for the rest of my healthier, happier, longer

life.

it's not a sprint, it's a marathon!! I'm a winner!!😉

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        Congratulations! You have every right to feel proud!

        That's amazing, it must feel great!

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

      08/16/19 - weight 149.5 /  bmi 23.5 / bmr 1500 kcals / fat% 16.7% / fat mass 25 lbs
      desired range fat % 11-22 / fat mass 17-38.5 lbs
      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
