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!

      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
