Today celebrates 19 months since I had my revision from lapband to RNY. I couldn't be happier with this decision. I have, however, allowed old, bad habits to creep back in, and now I am faced with a 21 lb gain from my low weight of 112 lbs. Today I weigh 133lbs. I exercise regularly, which is great, but I am eating simple carbs like chips and crackers, and I graze from 3-bedtime. Both habits are attributing to this gain. I also have started drinking water while grazing, so this habit also has to be eliminated. Today, I commit to a healthier, bariatric eating plan and lifestyle. I don't like feel uncomfortable in my clothes, and I am starting to feel my self-confidence dwindle based on this weight gain. I am looking forward to Summer and being able to wear all the cute clothes I bought last year, and do not want to have to buy a bigger size clothes for this Summer. I am still very grateful for this surgery, and I am healthier than I have ever been since my teenage years. I wouldn't change a thing!! Today, I still wear a size S top and a tight 2, comfortable size 4 pants. Last Summer, my clothes were a Size 0, so I have some work to do!! I want to lose 21 lbs by July 4. I know if I put my mind to it, I can accomplish this goal. One day at a time!!
