Hi my name is Wendy and I gained back 65 lbs that I had lost after my bypass in 2001. You can read my story at www.healthy-wealthy-n-wise.com/blog I have lost 36 lbs since May 19th and finally feel in control of my life again. I would suggest that you find someone to talk to whether it is a pastor or ounselor etc that you can talk to about the alcohol and depression that comes with the loss of people close to you. I went through a six month period once that was filled with death and it just about did me in. Sometimes just having someone to talk to that is outside of the situation can really help. I would love to chat with you sometime about what you can do to lose the weight that you have gained. I have had iron transfusions and B12 shots in the past but finally have found a product that seems to be absorbing and helping me lose weight as well. I love it! Check out my blog site and get ahold of me if I can help you in any way.

I am sorry for your loss. You need someone to talk to--I would be happy to talk with you about your weight and life goals. I had revision surgery 13 weeks ago after struggles with regained weight for 4 years. You need someone to guide you through a proactive stance; with your losses, a grief counselor or minister would be your best bet. As for weight regain, there are procedures to help with stretching of the stomach pouch--see your surgeon, and consult with your nutritionist to review your food intake. Also make sure you are taking your supplements, and getting your dietary needs met through the proteins, and vitamins. I would start again by journaling the food intake, noting feelings at times when the food triggers excessive eating, and exercise--walking is safest, and not expensive. If you attend to these things, the alcohol consumption won't be a problem. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org free to send me a note to chat, and discuss progress. I know we can get you on the right track again! Take care, Ronda
