A few weeks shy of my 2 year anniversary



Recommended Posts

Hello all,

It's been a long time since my last post. It's good to see all of the new folks that have found their way to this forum. It was extremely helpful to me both pre & post surgery. My 2 year anniversary is right around the corner (10/8). It was one of the best decisions that I've ever made. I've lost 120+ lbs though I've been in a stall since the COVID-19 lockdowns began. It's been 9 months or so since I've had any kind of pain or dumping. At this point, I can eat just about anything though my stomach is still sensitive first thing in the morning. I can tell that my stomach has stretched some b/c I can eat more in one sitting now. I plan to try a 'reset' and then do some intermittent fasting to get back on track. I'd like to lose another 25lbs.

I've said all that to say this, keep the faith, especially you newbies. I know it's hard but it's worth it and believe it or not, it does get easier.

Be well and stay safe.

Twism44, we were just a day apart in our surgeries. Hard to believe its almost 2 yrs already! Congratulations on your success and hoping you have continued success to get that last 25 lbs off. I feel this has been one of my best decisions and has changed my life in so many ways. Keep up the good work and you will get where you want to be!

Hello Twism44--It is so nice to hear that we can relate. I have been post op from my Gastric Bypass since 2016 and I am now facing a stall. I decided to revisit my preop liquid diet and I am happy to say that I am doing my thing. It feels good to be disciplined. The pandemic led me to each due to boredom while working from home. But now that the gyms are open in NYC I have included my exercise now and am watching what I eat.

Kudos to you with the inspiring words. Thank you! Remaining positive and keeping the faith alive is important. I hope to lose 50 lbs within the next few months.

Be well and stay safe.
