Life so far......
Jan 08, 2019
So this year will be my 5 year surgery anniversary and I regret having the surgery. I have constant heartburn. I feel like I should have stayed fat. After eating sometimes I have to make myself throw up just to ease the heartburn. I am eating tumbs like candy. This is not right. If I had known that it would be this hard I never would have had the surgery. I go see my doctor next week I am praying for some good news because I can't afford to go to Mexico to have revision surgery. I could if o have too but that would mean no more car and still live at home until I die..... but i have to do something because i am miserable. I pray I get some good news next week.

I am so disappointed right now. I am 4 years out from surgery and I have continued heartburn. I eat tums like candy and the heartburn medication I take does not help. I am looking into revision surgery VSG TO RNY but my insurance doesn't cover it. In all honesty if I knew I would have major heartburn like this I would have stayed fat. . I am just gonna give up because I dont know what to do anymore.

So I will be 4 years out this year and i am tried all the time..... and i think i know the cause of this....... i am not taking my vitamins. I think my levels are getting low. I have no energy to do anything, but the vitamins are so expensive and I just started back working again. But this is a life style change for the better. So Drea we have to take our vitamins and I need to quit being lazy.

So I am 3 years out and I have failed my surgery and myself. I am at 236 now and I am heartbroken by this. I have wasted all my doctors time and money. In all honesty I should have stayed fat. I just feel like a major failure right now.
Hungry all the time
Feb 26, 2017
So I am two years out and I am now hungry all the time..... this scares me because I might ruin my stomach and this surgery would have been a waste of time. I need some help because I don't know what to do anymore
Almost 2 years out
Aug 25, 2016
so I am almost 2 years out and I feel like I have failed my surgery. I feel my weight slowly going back up and I hate it. My work schedule is crazy and I am always tired when I get off work. However I am making time to do 2 laps around the neighborhood. I hope that helps with my weight loss again. I know my stomach does stretch out a little but sometimes I wish I has RNY like my mother because I see so many skinny people who had VSG and look amazing. I don't know. It is what it is....

So I am a year and 5 months out and I have lost my motivation to exercise. I work 8 hours a day and I am so tired when I get off work..... (I work in retail) anyway I am still loseing which I find to be very crazy. My mother tells me I need to work out more but she sits at a desk all day and I have to walk around the store all day. I know that I should not count that as exercise. I just feel like if I see some weight gain then I wil get my but back in the gym. Maybe I am just being really lazy and I need to get off my fat butt........ I am just so lazy right now but working over the holiday season was stressful...... I just need the motivtion to exercise more, but right now I seem very happy with my weight which is 179.2 but my mother thinks I need to skinner and mabye she is right..... I am getting fat again...... who knows........
