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!!😉

I’m only five years out, but maintain a weight loss either side of 100 pounds by about five pounds. 100 in summer 95 in winter. I am generally physically active five days a week. The past three weeks I’ve been struggling with a sinus issue.
Otherwise I still weigh myself every day and track my eating even on the bad days when I eat too much.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
