You are not alone in having a weight gain. I want to kick anyone who says bariatrics is the easy way out. This is work.

Getting back on track is overcoming the mental battles. If you are having stress/emotional eating problems, you may want to read some books on this topic or work with a counselor. None of us get to avoid life stresses. Its finding ways to cope without using food. Getting back on track may be hard but, being over weight is hard. Suffer the pain of discipline or the pain of regret.

Go back to bariatric real food stage basics. Log your food, Stay within your weight loss calories and macros, hydrate and exercise. If you need help with your plan/calories/macros call your dietician for advice.

There is a search button on the top left of this forum. Type in weight gain.

Hi! I am only 4 weeks post op but the number one thing that sticks with me that my surgeon said is that these surgeries are a TOOL not a solution. If you are picking up on bad eating habits, try and slowly turn yourself back to eating healthy. I’m not sure if you are walking or going to the gym but try and get back to those also, it should help you start dropping pounds again! Don’t give up you are not alone!!

Maybe that no matter how good the surgeon and surgery were, the true solution lies within yourself. Each of us has to decide to hammer the nails into our own piece of furniture that is our body. Successes at the gym are good for your spirit, but the bottom line daily is " How do you feel about you? " Are all the different facets of your new life falling into place? If not do you know what or who to consult? They say it is a Life and Lifestyle changer for a reason!

Choose a way you can stay on even when "life happens". This might take some experiments and trust in yourself. It might also not bring you down to a BMI of 20, but obviously the approach you tried before didn't do this either.

However, no calorie tracking, carb phobia, exercise program, pouch test, Protein Drink or back to basics will work in the long run if you can't follow through with it when the **** hits the fan - and there will always be times in life when this happens.

Ultimately the choice is yours if you decide to hop on the dieting-merry-go-round again or if you ditch it for good.

      Behavioral modification is the key... I went to my first session of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and it was incredible! We talked about the purpose behind certain unwanted behaviors as all behavior is developed to serve a purpose, being ready, willing and able, thought mapping (finding the origin/pattern of thought that ultimately contributes to certain unwanted behaviors), and replacing one behavior with another that's as equally rewarding, if not more.

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.
