Best of luck Melanie. This isn't a big secret, exercise and watch what you put into your body nothing we all haven't heard 1000 times. I wish you all the best. I would however do something now though and don't wait until you're out of onederland.:51_scream:

are you still following the program and logging everything you eat? I still have to do it at 5+ years out, otherwise, my weight starts heading north again pretty quickly...

Before surgery, people repeatedly suggested that I log my food at MyFitnessPal and weigh the food every day. That was way too burdensome for me.

But when I reached maintenance weight a year post-surgery, this became my life-saver. Through MyFitnessPal, I discovered that prior to logging, I was eating about 300 calories a day more than my daily required caloric needs (1200/day) and was wildly off when I guesstimated how much food was in a cup. (I always overestimated). If I hadn't started logging and weighing, I would be quickly regaining all the weight I had just lost.

Yah, it's a pain. It's time-consuming. And it's burdensome.

But it may be what helps you lose those 10 pounds and shed even more.

I am 16 months out and have lost 60lbs and have gained 45lbs. Any suggestions on how to get myself motivated again? I feel like i have gained the covid 45, like the freshman 15. This my first time asking anyone besides the dr for help. I feel embarrassed and shameful.

Back to basics. Avoid junk and fast food, high carb food like rice, Pasta, bread. Choose whole, unprocessed foods. And exercise as much as you can. Logging intake may help but you probably already know what you are eating that you shouldn't. Too many return to old eating habits and then mystified tgat weight is returning.

Stats: 5'1", age 67, female. Highest weight: 245. BMI 41. Surgery Date: May 28, 2020. Weight at surgery: 211.
