I had VSG on 7/11/2016. My high weight was 311 and I lost down to 217. In the past several months, I've gained back up to 238.5 pounds. I am dedicated to getting back on track and am in search of an accountability partner!
Great idea! Like a work out partner but with the challenges of food. Good Luck. Just remember how hard u initially worked to lose that weight & refuse to letnit creep back on.
That's what I'm trying to focus on. My fiance is a big junk food eater and his habits have slowly crept up on me, so I'm trying to break them. I'm reading all the blogs and watching all the videos on FoodCoach.Me and Steph suggests an accountability partner... someone to text/call/whatever when I need a reality check... and I need that from time to time!
Hiya and welcome.
I use these forums as my accountability partner. I find that participation in the daily meal thread helps to keep me honest.

Like Gwen, I find the menu threads to be the best way of promoting accountability. I try to post daily on both the RNY and VSG threads (different people for the most part though some do both like me - I like them all)!
