Thanks everyone, I know I can it's just getting back to planning and exercise. I am doing the 5 day pouch test now, to get the carbs out of my system.
So I had my surgery on 7/18/2011. I lost about 60 pounds and I've gained almost 30 back. I know what I need to do to lose it again, but I guess my question is it possible or have i messed up my metabolism. I want to get to my goal weight of 140. Which means I now have to lose 60 pounds. It seems impossible, but I know I can do it. I just wanted to hear from some people that have made a come back after having gained.
Yes, that would be awesome any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I know I need to get back to the basics. Which is 600-800 calories less then 40 carbs a day and 80 to 100 grams of protein. I am going to sit down tonight and plan out my meals for the next 7 days. I think if I have it written out I will be more likely not to get off track. Believe it or not I asked for new scale for Christmas and Santa brought me one. Who new I would get excited over a scale. It's the Fitbit Aria.
Thanks Elina for replying. I am trying to get back to losing weight. I have about 40 pounds to lose to get to goal. Thanks for listening.
I have not been on here for several months. Partly because I've been busy with my kids and partly because I have been depressed and have been gaining weight. I had my surgery in July of 2011 and I lost 60 pound but that was in the first 4 months. After that I never really lost anymore. By the time the summer rolled around, I was really down because I was not losing, so I've let bad habits creep back in and I am not making good food choices. I've stopped exercising. So I've gained about 15 pounds back. I am not writing this to get some advise on how to get back on track. Should I go back to the liquid phase and start over. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Debby, thats encourging news.I saw the new PA. She is really nice,but I definately don't want to stop at 182. I'm 5'4 and would like to get down to 145-155 range. I don't have any co-morbids anymore so in that way I am healthy, but still want to go lower. I am definately working really hard get those extra 20 or 30 pounds off.
