12 Years Later
Jan 06, 2019
Hello. I'm now 12 years out from gastric bypass surgery. Wow, it's been a while. I'm happy to say I am keeping the weight off, currently 151 pounds.
I still have food intolerances, especially sugar and lactose. I can eat cheese, but no milk or ice cream, sugar-free or otherwise.
I walk regularly, mostly outside. I dread the treadmill. I plank and do some yoga at home.
I must admit the I have gained and lost weight over the years, at one point I was a little over 190 at a doctor's appointment. I got that back under control quickly.
One of my biggest successes is being consistent on weighing daily. When I stop that, I gain weight. When I keep it up, I keep the weight off.
Good luck to you all. Keep positive, but allow the dips.
