So I saw the surgeon yesterday and it does not appear that my pouch has enlarged at all (RNY 6/2003) but I have had a 100 pound weight gain. Needless to say I am deflated (i wish) any suggestions on how to re-start? Any good diet tips? ANything would help at this point
Please don't be discouraged. Remember, you were given a tool, you just have to be retrained on how to use it. I started climbing back up 2 yrs ago, and put the brakes on. I removed ALL bread, crackers, rice, sugar, and all carb type food and did a diet of straight protein and grilled veggies. I immediately lost 22 lbs. I had gained like 12. I have maintained that and lost another 5 recently. My total weight loss is 100 lbs. So it CAN be done! It's not easy, and I am here to tell you I strugged every single day. But I do not want to go back. I had my WLS 8 1/2 yrs ago (lap RNY), and I pray every day that I can keep the willpower going. Some days I think I can't and other days it's easy. Please don't give up! Good luck, and take one day at a time and don't punish yourself.
