Walking Wendy, Welcome to the group (or is it welcome back!). I am glad to see that you are posting right away! Congratulations on your successful maintenance of your weight. You are correct that it is best to deal with any weight gain right away and not to let it go. Good luck on your plans for getting back on track!

I believe in taking a positive attitude toward the world. My hope still is to leave the world a little bit better than when I got here.

Hello, I just joined SP 2 weeks ago and am still getting acquainted. I had my surgery in Nov of 2004 and lost 65 pounds then. Since then I have been hovering within the 150s but have always wanted to lose another 20 to 30 pounds. It is like this giant plateau just came up and stopped me. Over the past 6 months my weight crept up to 161 and I simply felt awful, so here I am again. I know how to eat healthy. I know how to exercise. I even know how to maintain my weight. What I can't get through is this plateau. I am hoping with the extra support and upping my food intake to 1200 calories a day (I typically only eat around 800) then the weight will start to move. You heard me right, I have to increase my calories, increase my activity, and stay constant. One of the things I have learned about the after surgery life is that with the lower caloric intake comes a drop inthe metabolism. My body is comfortable with little food intake. Over the past week and a half I have dropped 7 pounds. I know this is mainly water weight, but I am noticing that I am feeling my better and more in control again. I'm sure alot of you are waiting surgery, just had surgery, or perhaps like me it has been awhile. I would do it all again in a heart beat, but remember having surgery is just the beginning of the journey. You can and will gain weight again. The key is to catch it in the beginning and reign it in.

Go Nevada Wolfpack!
