  1. Well it has been awhile since I have been on TTF and I dont want to ever go this long again.  I am almost 5 years out from Bypass. I have recently well not so recently been excusing my now 20 lb weight gain. BUT no more! I promised myself when I did this surgery for me that I never wanted to feel like I am over weight, never wanted to get to that point again where I was pulling at my shirt because it is now a bit snug.  I have looked at why I am eating and what I am eating and know the path to reduce again. I was given an amazing life line and will not abandon it or me!  I need to lower my carbs and increase protein and icky veggies. I like fruit not veggies but I love me more. So while 20 lbs may not seem alot, it is more than I want on my body so back to basics for me!! no fad diets or any thing extreme like the old day just good basic bypass instructions. I am glad to be back and look forward to getting healthier again
