Looking for some cheerleaders!



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I haven't posted in this forum in...ever? So, hi! I have my RNY in June 2017 with the hope that my weight loss would help my PCOS and help us conceive a second child. I am happy to report that our mission was a success and I am now 4 week postpartum! Our baby boy was born 8/25 :) Now, the next part of the mission beguns, which is losing the weight I gained during pregnancy. I was able to keep it on the low side, only gaining about 30-35lbs, most of which are now gone...however, I still have -at least- 7lbs I need to lose to put me at a healthy BMI. Any extra weight I lose would be a very nice surprise and be very welcome, but my initial goal is to get back to a healthy BMI. After 9 months of not really paying much attention to how much food I put in my body I am finding it hard to get back into it, so I need some cheerleaders...mostly people who can hold me accountable (although I should be hding myself accountable rather than hoping others will help keep me on track)...So anyway...any support and encouraging words will make me very happy!

Also...if anyone has any questions about pregnancy after RNY, I will be more than happy to answer!!!

Stay safe and have a wonderful day!

Congratulations on your baby boy and your other successes.

The offer of answering questions regarding pregnancy is very generous.

Being a guy it's obvious I know everything there is to know about pregnancy. I have done extensive research on pregnancy and rearing kids. So while it may sound counter-intuitive your baby boy is going to require a lot of your time, attention, and energy. In fact, your new baby boy will require almost as much time and energy as your spouse.

As you said, accountability is up to you. It sounds like you are pretty good at it. You will get back into your healthy routines.

Exciting times ahead.

Congratulations!!!!! Are you breastfeeding? If so, you already know this, but make sure you get all those liquids in!!!

Happy to cheer you on to victory! Whatever you need. If you need some accountability, feel free to post your daily food diaries, weigh-ins, etc, whatever will help you stay on track! Good luck - you got this!!

I had the vsg in May of 2017. I got pregnant with my first 11 months post op. I never hit my goal weight, oops. I'm now due in December with #2 and I'm really hoping to lose the weight in the New year.
