I haven’t been here for awhile. A couple of years after my surgery, I thought I was good and didn’t need any help from anyone anymore. Boy was I wrong! I lost 100 pounds. In the past 2 years 45 pounds has creeped back on. Now I’m back and ready to focus on losing (again). Any tips to reboot my system? Any help and guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Hey there! Welcome back! Ive been trying to shift some regain lately too. Only thing working is back to basics. Protein first. Making sure i get at least 65 to 75g of protein. Trying to keep my carbs under 50. And not drinking or eating junk. My strategy has been filling up on protein and THEN having my snack if there is room after my meal. I do this at night since that's when my sweet took likes to take over. I find im less likely to binge on junk and ive been gradually reducing my junk intake. It's made me feel less inclined to pig out on it. And my cravings have gone down considerably.

Hello, I'm there right now. I had my RNY in '15. I lost faith and jumped off the wagon. Lost and gained, now excitedly losing. I NEVER thought I could do this all over but I am proof that Yes, You Can!!! I don't know exactly how much I've lost because my battery scale died during my "rebound." Ugh.

Anyway, it is entirely possible to be successful again! It takes head work first, then we get down to the food/Life. It helps to understand what carbs, sugar, LDL, HDL, Fiber, etc DO to and for your body. It was a big whoop in the arse to learn how we're putting our lives in danger. It eventually (I'm quite stubborn) made me change what I do and don't put in my body. Don't think I'm one of those people whose very, very strict, but I am way more mindful of my food now and that is what got me back on track. I read a specific Cardiologist 's book over and over and over till I finally let myself "get it and act on it." Then, a specific lifestyle ensued.

So basically, other than food advice (which does help) I won't give in this post, I say get your head in order first. Learn, and go from there. I'm really the last person I thought I'd ever say this....but it can be done, I'm living proof. I wasted 4 years! But I 'm back in the saddle again! YOU CAN DO IT!

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
