    Lightbulb Hello from Connecticut

    Hi. My name is Laura and I had gastric sleeve surgery on March 22, 2019. I have lost 95 pounds since surgery which has been an incredible experience after being overweight for over 20 yrs.

    I'm looking for a positive place for ideas, recipe modifications, and how to get past my current stall. I have lost confidence in myself as I did when I would constantly diet prior to surgery.

    I know I have a great tool but now I really need to understand how best to use it in year 2 and meet my goals.

    And I would be really interested in meeting other gastric sleevers in the area of Danbury CT to develop a local support group.

    Thanks and have a beautiful day!

    My only advice is to keep eating how you were originally taught. Maybe dig out your old materials. I'm over 6 years out and still do the protein first then veggies. I exercise daily. I also joined Weight Watchers for the accountability of stepping on the scale each month, but I wouldn't recommend that now as there are no meetings during COVID.

    I weigh a few pounds under my goal, and have been here since losing it. I'd love to lose a little more. Maybe when life gets back to normal? Losing is so much easier than maintaining. But we can do it! Best of luck to you.

    Your hospital doesn't have a support group? If not this is a fun place to hang out and ask questions.

    Welcome to the group!
    Like Sharon, I am 6 years out. My suggestion to you is to always stay on top of your weight. Don't become complacent because old habits do come roaring back with no warning. I also joined Weight Watchers because I need the accountability. If you're looking for a positive place with great people, you've come to the right forum. We are all very supportive of each other and are always available when one of us needs a boost or a swift kick in the butt!

    Thanks for the reply. Great suggestions. I have been terrible about my protein and water. Getting back to basics and managing my habits.
