Welcome GeekGirl emoticon

emoticon on emoticon Lucas, what a cool name and a wonderful time in your life! This only means one thing...... You now have a workout buddy! taking those walks together in the stroller in the neighborhood or in the mall (if weather is bad) having playtime as you stretch to reach him, strengthening your muscle as you use Lucas's weight as resistance, there are great workouts you can find on the internet as well as dvd that is for mom and baby.

Welcome back! We are glad you returned and wish you success in your life with your new baby and in the weight loss.
I agree with Jennifer, the key for me is eating healthy, logging food, and exercising regularly. You may want to do a google search for the 5 day pouch test. Many people who are out a ways use this to jump start their return to loosing weight after regain. Visit your doctor and your nutritionist to get their assistance.

I would also recommend re-reading the books you read to prepare for surgery and for the early stages after surgery. If you did not read any then you have probably seen the books I usually recommend. I am working on Katie Jay's book on weight loss transformational stages ( don't have the exact title with me today) and that might be a good place for you to start by remembering those early days.
Good luck,

cindy

Welcome to the team! Congrats on your son and your weight loss. I know it is not as easy 3 years out to lose as it was in the beginning, but it possible. I am 8 years out and have lost 17 of the 40 I regained. Be sure to log your food, exercise, water, protein first and take your vitamins.

Best of luck to you in reaching your goals.

I've been lurking for a few months now. August 4 was my gastric bypass 3 year surgi-versary. Last week my son, Lucas, turned 4 months old. He is my first child. It felt strange to gain weight during the pregnancy after losing more than half my body weight! My highest weight was 296 lbs, I was 263 lbs when I had RNY, and my low was somewhere around 130 lbs. Now that I've had the baby, I've been hovering around 150 lbs. My old shirts fit me, but I no longer fit into the size 6 jeans I wore last year. I've gotten back to the gym now that the little guy is old enough to bring to their child care, and I only own 2 pair of jeans that fit me (size 10) in the hopes that it will help motivate me to get back on track. I've talked to the nutritionist at my surgeon's office a couple of times since my son was born too.
