Sheepla ...

I too have my 3 year appointment the first week in June (had my surgery May 11, 2009)  I am doing well.  I too had about a 9-10 lb gain from my lowest.  I think that is somewhat "normal", however I too want to get it off!!!  I have to say I have been following all of the rules, so I am just sticking with it and getting in a little more exercise and see what happens.  I am VERY happy where I am also.  Good luck at your appointment.

I've got my three year appointment next week so am checking in.  I've been struggling the last six months. Still happy with where I am compared to where I was but have regained 12 pounds and want to get back on track.  How's everyone else doing?

I am here too ... never much action on this board!    I check frequently.  I am almost three years out now ... doing well ... maintaining.  I have to say it does get a little harder as you go on.  My husband just had RNY this past week so it is helping me to stay focused more.  Hope everyone is doing well.

 I never reached goal either, and I too have noticed a regain. I do not dump. HOWEVER, I do sometimes have reactive low blood sugars. If I eat something too carby or sugary I will fall into a coma almost, shakes, sweats, can't speak cohearently...then I need something sweet to rebound me. I need motivation to stop the grazing habit I have started again. AAAAAAAAHHHHH!!

I am worried that I have the dreaded bounce myself. I am up 9 pounds over my lowest weight and never got to goal. Keep up the good work!

I’m happy with the overall weight loss - > I guess I kinda got fooled into thinking that this would last forever (losing weight so easy).   I’ve  so far lost 60% excess weight and couldn’t  be happier with my current weight and my overall health.   I guess it’s getting on a scale every morning and seeing that swing from week to week.

Topic: RE: NOTLosing
I have a 5-6 pound swing/week for probably 2 months--I am VERY frustrated--I also do not dump and am finding myself hitting old habits a bit--BUT..I am on it and am making a conscious effort to stop it!! I know I can and will...seems like when there is not loss I get teh "what the heck" feeling and try things and too much of some things...I can eat more than I think I should and worry that I have hurt this great tool I have given to myself--but with that said, I feel I am heading to the right path now and will be okay----I would like to loose another 25 pounds---I'm at 185 down from around 310...I'm happy but would like to see lower numbers soon---I'm setting new goals and reaching them --- some things just take time and I am giving it all I have----WE CAN DO IT!!!! LET"S GO!!!!

 Are you saying that you are up/down 5-6 pounds a week? WoW! I have been stable for probably 6 months (with a swing of 2-4 pounds). How much more were you hoping to loose?
Just wondering, what do you typically eat in a day. Are you having problems with certain foods. I am asking because I am still struggling with food, most days it's impossible to eat more that 3-5 bites at a time. It's driving me crazy!!!

My weight loss has stopped just when I was getting used to losing a few pounds a month.   Stable now with a swing of between 5 - 6 pounds a week.

Now that I've got a date for the gallbladder, I can finally start thinking about plastics.  I'm going to look into have a panniculectomy after Christmas.  I was told you should wait at least 6 months between surgeries.  So, I'm quite excited that I can start that process soon! 

EOD WIFE, it sounds like you're doing great as well!  What kind of plastics did you have done?  And if you don't mind my asking, how was the recovery?

And I totally agree, it was hands down the best thing I could have done for myself!
I had a maxi TT (anchor type with muscle tightening and some lipo) and a upper arm lift, all of which I paid for and was about 14k. Then Tricare payed for me to get a breast reduction due to back and neck issues.

I hope y'all May'ers are hitting your goals and loving life!

I have had my plastics (all I can afford LOL) and feel fantastic. This time last year I was trying  to get to onederland and now I am so close to goal I can taste it!

Hands down WLS was the best thing I could of ever done for myself. I have my health back and life is good!

Topic: RE: One Year Surgiversary!!!
Sometimes I feel like my goal is out of reach also.  I would like to lose 50 more pounds as well.  I know we can do it.  I have prayed through my plateaus and cut way down on snacking between meals (this was a bad thing for me).  I try to drink a lot of crystal light, and exercise at least twice a day, 7 ndays a week.  We have a 5 month old pomchi puppy, so he has been a godsend as far as me getting out and exercising more.  I guess if I had any advice/suggestions it would be to never give up.  I get a lot of encouragement from reading other posts on other wls sites.
Have a blessed day!!

 I feel your pain! Is there a councelor for your bariatric program?

I am having my own issues and I am going to see a councelor soon. Good Luck!
