  1. I know a lot of people on this forum are going though the first year of their weight loss journey. Just would like to hear from someone who has gone more then 5 years, were you able to keep your weight off or not? Would love to hear from you, where you are at and where you are going. Inspirational stories would be a plus. Thank you
  2. thank you gamzap.
  3. Well haven't posted in awhile but I am wondering if there are other people who have in the past or are having problems that I am having. 4 ½ years I had my Gastric By Pass, lost over a 100 pounds in the first year, have gained a few pounds back but my surgeon who is a good friend of mine is not worried. My dieabet3s is gone and never came back, along with some other problems are gone. Physically I feel great. Happy with my results and love my 2nd lease on life. But several years ago, I started to just withdrawal from things in my life. Things that I thought was important just had less and less interest, in my life, And I started having these ringing in my ears. Very disturbing during the day, and It effects my sleeping too, and now I think I am depressed. Never had depression or Tinnitus at all, before. Never have had any problems before. I have a appointment with my PCP Wednesday, all the therapist and psychologist, I inquired with, wouldn't take me unless I got a referral from my PCP. Just seeing if anyone had problems start years after your WLS.
