Highest Weight Ever - 426
Lowest Since WLS - 301
Current Regained -405

Had RNY Gastric Bypass done in Fall of 2005 (8 years ago). I lot about 125 lbs, I have regained 105 of that lost. I believe I didn't lose as much as I could have, and regained because I was drinking with meals, so never staying full and able to eat more than I'm supposed to. Also, not exercising enough... I increased activity but not actually exercising. And I didn't follow the high protein diet after surgery. I more got in the mindset of being able to eat whatever (other thank junk food obviously) as long as it was small amounts I should lose. Well eventually your stomach stretches back out some, and the drinking allows me to eat more also. I can now eat a full plate of food which I consider about a normal meal for an adult who hasn't had any surgery. But I'm still staying the same weight. I'm just ready to lose. I've felt like a failure for so long after the regain... it's time to do something about it. And I'm really optimistic... I'm not TRYING to lose weight I'm GOING to lose weight. Really I'm just going to start off trying to follow a post op diet more strictly. Mainly focus on protein and other healthy foods. Not drinking before, during, and after a meal. And making sure I get enough fluids in between meals. I have been having some back, neck, and nerve pain problems lately... but I am going to start slow with just taking the dog on walks or just walking alone each day. See how much I can handle comfortably, and build up my tolerance. I'd like to maybe start swimming again soon, depends if our pool has steps or just ladders right now. And I'd like to do some stretching like the kind when I was in physical therapy to build my muscles back up and get to a point where I can exercise more. I can't wait to feel better and look better. Am looking for other people, preferably with similar history with the Weight Loss Surgery. To just chat with or email about Diet, Exercise, Health, Stress, Life, Kids, anything really. Just someone we can support each other and brag, or be a shoulder to cry on. My goal is a little flexible... I'd like to at least get down to about 300 like I did after surgery, I'd be even happier at 250... and if I EVER got down to 200 I'd be ecstatic, but I don't expect it. I mostly want to fix my back and neck problems. They didn't bother me much for years, but as the weight kept climbing back up it's gotten to a point where it's affecting my daily life. I'm waiting to hear back from my doctors office about results of a thyroid test also... maybe something simple like that, that medicine could help increase weight loss once my thyroid is back in check. Not sure though, I should know soon.
