25 months out RNY...anyone else like me?
Hi Lori! You are not alone my friend. I stayed in the 140's for about two years. Then, this July I had my stoma stretched. Since then, I have gained 15 pounds. The Dr. told me to not go above 145...at 158-160 now. I do not exercise and can eat ALOT more than I used to be able to. I totally understand how you feel. I think we need to go back to protein and water, seriously, for like five days. I hear that gets the pouch back in shape. It is still going to be a battle for us forever. Hang in there, you are still successful. I have two friends that had the surgery six and eight months prior to me, and have gained all their weight back. We have to work our minds with our tool...hugs to you

I have the same problem. My weight was stable for about six months once I got to my goal and now I have put on 15 lbs. I'm really scared that I will put on all the weight I have taken off. I know what I should be doing but I keep eating the wrong things and way too much. I think about food all the time and I eat a lot of chocolate...even if it makes me feel ill. I haven't been exercising either. I know it will be easier to lose 15 lbs than 150 but I never start. My stomach is the part I hate the most too. I think all of the 15 lbs went there. I haven't been on this site for months. I hope I will get some motivation to get back to basics....Good luck to you both. Fran
