Q & A

Has anyone here had weight loss surgery and experienced regain of greater than 30%? I’ve regained 50 of my 124 pounds lost and could sure use some support and good ideas to get back on track. I’d be happy to lose even 30 of these regained pounds.

    • It took me about a year to lose the weight, maybe a couple months more. I’ve gained the last 30lbs in the past year from not exercising due to back injury. I just need to get on a program. I did try Weight Watchers with no success. Maybe it’s that I’m not devoted enough to losing it. hmmmm

    • I know that weight issues can be just as much emotional as physical. Are you dealing with some added stresses right now? I know the back injury must be causing more than just physical discomfort. I’m sure it’s altered the routine you established to lose and maintain your weight. If it’s just physical, perhaps swimming or any other non-impact exercise will help temporarily. If there is an emotional component, perhaps a counselor or trusted clergy can help you process whatever is going on.

      In any case, you’ll find a lot of support here. Hope all gets back on track for you soon!

    • Thanks for all the lovely responses. I had the gastric-bypass to answer one or your questions. I’ve kept it off for about 6 years until this regain.
      Mentally I could do some work I’m sure. Life has been really stressful due to my back situation, my husband’s work situation and just life in general. Nothing more than the next person is going through though. Thanks for the encouragement and the website for the supplementation.
