Sep 07, 2010It's been so long since I've checked in, I can't find any of my friends and I'm not even sure why I'm here at this point. I guess just wanted to ground myself.
5+ years out and going strong. Had a small bounce-back, about 10 pounds, but have lost about half that in the past few months. I pretty much feel like any other 'normal' person - no real food issues other than sugar and hyperglycemia which is totally manageable. Eat 'normal' sized meals (i.e. not normal for normal people,. not what I used to eat pre-WLS), mostly veggies and some protein, drink mostly water, etc.
Feel great, would do it once a year for life if I had to! For those of you still struggling, don't give up! It's totally doable and totally worth it, you just have to fight for it!
