  4. Contemplating surgery

    I am 6 & 1/2 years out -NO Regrets - I got down to 108 lbs 1year out and now stay 125-130. I went to CA in May here are some pics. I was so insecure prior to surgery I would have never taken this trip - RI to CA by myself - to see a friend that moved there about 10 years ago. I am so Happy I went had so much fun!. You can check out my profile for some before pic - my highest weight was 240 lbs!

    I am 6 years out.... How can we help?
  11. 7 years, should I be concerned?

    HI Jodi, I am 6 years out and just recently stopped smoking (10/31/2016 was quit day) and over the HOLIDAYS - I put on weight -up to 126 (8 lbs gain). It came on FAST!! I told myself that I was doing all the same things so WHY??? But after looking at my past logs (food and exercise) boy was I wrong. It seems just until recently I stayed the same weight no matter what so my exercising was not as aggressive as in the past - yes still going to gym but cut my cardio down and # of days going...also with food still eating the same things BUT was eating more and more often....so back to logging! and back to rule NO EATING AFTER 8pm. But like you said it just seems so much HARDER now to lose a few lbs....I still have a few more to go to get back to my low comfortable weight 118.
