Hi all !!

Im 18 months post op !!

My highest weight was 218 lb . In the first 9 months i got to 168lb and since then I've been in a stall . 5 weeks ago i decided to make a drastic change in which i excercize 6 hrs a week and dropped my carb intake to fruit only .

This change has been really effective. This morning i weighed in at 159lb

Im really happy and proud of myself , however i am worried that as soon as i dial it down ( when i get to my goal weight - 142lb ) im going to gain everything back .

I dont want to stop but i also don't think i can continue this long term

What should i do ??

Thanx

It has to be a balance. Aren't you happy with where you are? A good combination of eating right and exercise is key.

I think that 6 hours a week is a healthy amount of exercise. You may need to continue that indefinitely. If you are doubting your ability to continue, maybe you need to find another form of exercise that you find more enjoyable.
