    Default My intro

    Hi! I was sleeved in March 2015 and reached goal six months later. I have been doing great and maintaining until recently. In the past 6 months my weight has crept up 5 lbs. it panics me a little and I want to get a grip before it gets out of control.

    I have not been involved in a support group, but, do see a therapist. I have tried local groups, but they are discouraging because so many have regained most/all of their weight. I need successful role models to give me hope that this is possible long term!

    Thank you!

    Hi Amy!
    Do you have any idea why this happens?
    Other foods, other choices, bigger portions?
    I am one year out and about to start my maintenance, so everything I can learn from others is very helpful to me.
    Please note: after months of reading I decided I wanted to be more active here and I want to write more. But please bear in mind, that English is not my first language, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications. I am doing the best I can!

    5 lbs is not a lot of weight to gain. Get back on the program, keep a diary (if you don't already), and try to exercise.

    I also use 5 lbs as my alarm signal for when I need to reevaluate what I'm putting into my stomach. I weigh daily so I'm not surprised by any numbers!

    My suggestions:

    Keep a food diary
    Drink lots of water 80 + oz daily!
    Weigh Daily

    With good diet and exercise the 5lbs should be gone in a couple weeks.

    Hope this helps.

    Remember, in this thing, it's a good thing to be a loser!

    High Weight - 317
    Pre Surgery Weight - 291
    Current Weight - 181
    Target Weight -205

    Agree with Glenn. 5 lbs is my alarm bell. Sraebaer had gained 5 lbs after an injury and used weight watchers point system to get back on track. She said it helped her really reevaluate what she was putting in her mouth.
