I am 5 1/2 years post surgery, total weight loss 110 lbs. About 2 years after surgery, I had our last precious baby girl (totally a surprise at age 48!) and now I am at weight gain, weight gain, about 3 lbs. at a time, about 55 lbs. up. I cannot eat as much as I used to, but still am choosing the wrong food. When I orginally had my surgery, I did very well, but the facility that I had it at closed 3 months later, and I was without support. I have only had one checkup (by a bariatric surgeon) in that amount of time since the original facility closed and have been fortunate enough to be in good health. The one doctor I did see billed through a hospital, and for the type of insurance we had, I had to pay a new deductible every time and could not afford it. This breaks my heart, because I never did even get to goal, and I want to get back on track. I do eat when I feel tied down even though I love our children dearly. God bless you annamarie, I hope you are able to get back on track, and myself too. I hate the way I feel and look. SO much. I would appreciate suggestions.
