well it has been a while.......
Thanks for reading
Hello Erin, nice to see your face again. Angus had just posted on the DS forum that he's had a bit of a regain as well. He had some good advice. I think it was in the last day if you want to surf that forum.
I can do hard things, life is teaching me that I can.
Lost 222lbs with rny, 20 lbs regain.

I dont have much to offer in terms of diet advice as Im still pre-op but I wanted to say that I really think anyone can turn things around. You recognize the behaviour that's causing the re-gain and that's a HUGE first step!
Best of luck :)
As you know, it's common to have some "bounce-back" after a few years. Having said that, you've stated that you're slipping back into old habits, which I'm sure isn't helping. It is NEVER too late to get started again - I'm so glad you're reaching out for support!
One word of advice would be to get your depression under control - if you're on meds (I'm assuming), get back with your doctor to discuss a change or increase. It could be that you're malabsorbing some of it and you may need a change.
As far as eating advice - I HIGHLY recommend you visit the DS forum here. The advice and support and guidance they provide to each other is second to none and I never cease to be extremely impressed with that forum. There is a poster there, "majormom" who starts an eating thread each day and is fabulous about offering other board members advice.
My very best wishes to you - and again, I'm glad to see you back. We're all here for you.

It's a B$#%# isn't it? I hear you loud and clear.
You made a smart move though hun! That's TRULY when you need your support people the most - whether in person or online. That's when you have to come back, refocus on this WLS thing and get back to basics. You are doing the right thing and now that you are here again, make a point to come and post in the daily threads (What are you eating/doing threads) to be accountable again.
Welcome back!! :) Stick around a while!
