It's Super hard restarting your weight loss journey! Much harder than the initial surgery weight loss. The mental wrecking ball is probably the biggest hurdle to overcome. Let's face it people, people are cruel and yet none is more critical than your self! Finding the support to keep momentum appears to be non existent. I have looked and reached out and it seems everyone is in a panic over their own worries of weight loss or gain that they aren't interested in working as a team to combat the weight and healthy living..I know I will do this once I conquer the depression and eliminate the little voice of self destruction but I wanted to send a message to all those searching for a friend and support to overcome the battles in their life.. yes we all have them just different demons or obstacles. Be a supporter, be the person you want others to be! Best wishes to all the beautiful people! Remember Failure only happens when you don't try!!!

I agree that it is hard and without support almost impossible. We have a daily menu thread on the RNY board where we post what we are eating, talk about what is happening in our lives, and offer each other support. It does not matter which surgery you had or what your plan is.

Don't wait until you overcome your depression. Don't wait for any reason. It gets harder everyday, never easier.

Please join us and let us help each other.
