I"m almost 2.5 years out and have gained about 15 lbs in the last 6 months or so. I joined a fitness boot camp this week and cut out the carbs and sweets. I'm hoping I can get the weight back off before it gets any worse.
As I lost weight, I had to make regular visits to my chiropractor. As I got smaller, I had many aches & pains that I didn't have before surgery. The good news it, that I'm 2 years out and don't have any major spine/joint pains.
So glad to know that I'm not alone. I'm also 2 years out and have gained 10 lbs. I get up every morning with good intentions only to toss them aside during the day. I absolutely MUST get a handle on my eating. My jeans are getting too tight and I refuse to buy new ones.
had my 2 year check up yesterday. I've gained 6 lbs from my lowest weight. My Dr was totally okay with the weight gain, he said this was just a good weight for me. On the other hand I am NOT ok with these 6 lbs. I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow, but when I get back I have GOT to get busy and get rid of those pesky 6 lbs.
I'm so sorry this happened to you. I also had my surgery cancelled at the last minute. I had to have an ERCP on the friday prior to my Monday surgery to dialate my common bile duct so they could remove my gallbladder when they did my RNY. Anyway,d/t the procedure I developed pancretitas and had a GI bleed that landed me in the hospital having to undergo another ERCP and get a blood transfusion. I was devestated, I had already completed my 10 day liquid diet and everything. I had to wait 8 weeks before they would consider doing the surgery because of the blood transfusion, but everthing worked out for the best. I had my surgery in January 2011 so I'm 2 years post op now and doing great. Hang in there, your time will come.
happygrandma, good luck with your new surgery. I don' t know why I ever started drinking diet soda again. I just love the stuff. I just don't understand why I can tell myself " I can not drink alchol" and never even think twice about doing it. but with soda I just can't say NO. I've just got to try harder to resist that particular temptation.
I'm so frustrated. I'm 2 years post op. I absolutely do not drink when I eat. I do not drink alchol, not any at all since my surgery. So, WHY, WHY, WHY are soda and sweets my downfall? The others, i just told myself those are the rules, and I haven't even considered breaking them. Sugar and soda I find myself partaking of on a regular basis. I'll get on the wagon and do good for a week or so, then I fall off and BAM! get run over by the wagon. I just don't know how to get my brain and belly to get in sync. LOL
