Hi Amy, My name is Julie. I was with Sparks in 1998 and lost 40 pounds. Slowly over the last 14 years, I have gained it back plus another 30. I completely feel your pain. My gain didn't have to do with a surgery like yours but rather trying to get healthier by quiting smoking. I quit twice and gained much both times. It has been nine months and I'm pretty sure I'm over that hump. My guess is your pretty much over your surgery hump too. If you ever need to talk to someone, let me know. Maybe we can work together at this life challenge. 1618 days ago
