Hi, my name is Debbie. I had RNY 14 yrs ago, in all I have regained 20 pounds. They told me that could happen,I did manage to keep it off for sometime. I let life get in the way and stopped taking care of me.
My family doesn't think it is such a big deal. I worry that it will not stop and be back where I started.
Why is it so easy to loose but to maintain is where the hard work comes in. Thanks for listening, l am looking forward to reading this board.
Since I wrote the above, I have started to work on me again, not just taking care of others. 20 lbs regain may not sound like much, and yes, I know they tell us that can happen. To me I was worried it would snowball. I never want to loose control of my health. So my answer is Paleo and it seems to be working for me. The RNY life is not like anything I know of. I have tried many of the suggestions my nutritionist suggested, but just didn't work for me. I felt like I was in no mans land...and scared.
Truly this is a journey not a marathon. God bless.
