it's not inevitable, but yes, it's very common to gain 10-20 lbs after hitting your lowest weight. And some, unfortunately, gain a lot more than that. It takes constant monitoring to hold the course. ARRGGGGGHHH!!!

I started at 227 and now am 110. I never meant to lose this much but still don't want to gain. It's been 19 months and I've been fortunate enough not to gain any but I know it's still early out.

yes - it's usually in year 3 that it starts happening. It's NOT inevitable, though, so if you want to stay where you are, just monitor yourself closely. Not everyone gains weight. Most do, but not everyone.

I actually gained about 15 lbs from my lowest weight. It's OK, though - I knew that was likely to happen, so I planned for that (purposely let myself drop a few lbs below my goal). My lowest was too low anyway, though - I didn't look that great. I look a lot better at my current weight.

I also gained almost ten pounds from my lowest weight, which was 18 pounds less than my original goal weight. As I've detailed elsewhere here, I actually found it difficult to stop losing weight when I entered maintenance. I thought I looked a bit emaciated at my lowest weight (132) and feel good after gaining eight pounds since then.

I think the unwanted weight gain later down the post-wls road is due to loosening of habits and generally eating more volume or more higher-cal foods without any offsetting exercise. If you catch the weight gain before it gets to big, you CAN work your way down to a comfortable level. Losing 5 lbs is much easier than losing 20. I think the key is to stay on top of it.

P.S. But I'm only 1 yr, 3 months out, so I may still be wearing my rose-tinted glasses...

I think you're exactly right!!

I had a big weight gain.

I was eating things I shouldn't because my home situation changed.

After the 70 lb weight gain. I moved out of the situation I was in.

I have lost close to 40 lbs. It took years and I am still trying to get back to my previous weight.

Hopefully I will lose 50 Lbs more. To get to a more sensible weight.

I had RNY and tried a revision surgery to SADI.

It doesn't seem to be doing much good. Maybe I am eating too many calories.

I was eating between 1500 to 1200. Now I am eating 1000 to 1200.

My doctor wants me to go lower than 1000. I am not sure how you do that without relying on Protein Drinks.

Which he told me not to do. I lost 17 lbs since the surgery 12/4. Most of that was during the preop diet and the initial

post surgical time.

Any suggestions about this situation are welcome.

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
