A Year Ago Today

1 year ago, I woke up from surgery without my crap band, but with a whole new opportunity to get healthy with RNY. Since then, I have lost more than what I wanted to lose, got off blood pressure meds, started exercising and have never felt better. I don't have any reflux, and other than sugar, don't really have any food intolerances. This is a good thing - I don't throw up or get things stuck, but it's also a bad thing - I have slowly introduced some of my trigger foods back into my diet, which sets off binges and cravings. I am working on getting back on a strict plan and dropping the lbs I have gained over the past 6 weeks. I am owning my deviations, and realize that I am happier being on a protein forward plan and eliminating the bad carbs, and I work on this every day. I feel so fortunate to have found this forum and the support and information I get from this site is so appreciated. I look forward going into my 2nd year with as much success as my first.

It's an ongoing lesson, isn't it?  Don't worry, you'll get it.

Congratulations on your wonderful accomplishment!  I am almost a year out and am finding that the cravings have come back in full force.  It is truly a battle everyday, but well worth it.  Hang tough....look forward and not back.  You have achieved so much!!!!
