Its been a long time since I have been here, but I am slipping and can use help. I have fallen into a major depression due to our current issue and family stuff. i am on depression meds now, and they are helping a bit. I am gaining weight and still fit into my clothes...but barely! I am so scared. I never want to be the old person I was and I could use some pointers on how to jump start weight loss again.
Here is how I screwed up and know I need to fix....its obvious, but I could use other tips and tricks please. I began drinking alcohol, but now switched to light wine....working on stop drinking all together, been hard. I have not exercised in a long time. I do eat healthy for the most part, the part I am struggling with is getting off my rump and exercise. I am tired and stressed out. My hair has been coming out due to stress and it became so thin I cut it to chin length just to give it more body. Please share your experiences with me - I would appreciate it!

Laying in bed at the Endohospital in mexico. Everything went exceptionally well. From start till present everything has been first class. I have gas pain my neck and shoulders but it's not too bad. I have seen Dr. Alvarez 3 times today and the nursing staff has been by about 10 times, I called them about three times. Everytime I called they were here in about 10 seconds. The care has been fantastic! My wife and I have been impressed with how everything has run. I would definitely recommend Dr. Alvarez and Endobariatrics! I'll answer any questions or concerns you may have.
I had RNY. My hunger completely went away for the first five months. It gradually came back, but it's not as intense as it was before surgery. I think most people's hunger comes back sometime during the first year, but for some people, it never really does. Wish I was one of the latter..
yes it's much less active than it was when I joined seven years ago. I think that may be true of internet forums like this in general. It seems more people are using Facebook groups these days instead of these kinds of forums.
Thank you so much for the response.
On a separate note, where is everyone hanging out on this forum these days? I used to be an active, daily user when I first had my lap band many years ago, but the level of activity seems to have died down significantly.
I had rny back in October and I am rarely hungry. I have even had my nutritionist tell me that I need to eat more calories but from what I hear this is the time to make the most of the weight loss. I can't attest to a long term affect of hunger being gone but I have heard people in my support group that are 2 + yrs say that they are not hungry that it is more of a head hunger. Good luck on your surgery.
