It has been almost 2 years since surgery and overall I couldn't be happier with the results. However, I have managed to gain back 13 pounds and I weighed in today at 160. That number scares me to death! So I have decided that starting tomorrow I will do the 5day pouch diet and start back to exercising regularly and log my results in here every week until I am back down to at least 147. (I would really like to go all the way to my orginal goal of 135, we'll see.)
I think the weight came back for a couple of reasons:
1. Stopped exercising
2. Didn't follow the rules (protein first, no drinking with meals, started back on the sugar)
3. Got really comfortable with my success and didn't think I needed to be careful anymore
I really hate the way my clothes are fitting right now - pants are getting a bit tight when they used to be loose. I REFUSE TO BUY BIGGER CLOTHES EVER AGAIN!!!! That is why I am stopping this weight regain right now, I am the one in control, and I will lose this excess weight.
My goal is to lose 3 pounds by next Tuesday (1/20/09)
