I had laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery 8 years ago and went from 300 ponds down to 160 pounds. I maintained a 140 pound weight loss for 5 years and had a tummy tuck and arm lift to remove excess skin. What a great feeling to go from a size 24-26 to a size 10!
My confidence soared and my life changed. I think the more comfortable I got, the more relaxed with my diet I became. I lost 140 ponds by not eating fat, sugar, cards, and by not snacking between meals, but after 5 years all my old habits gradually came back…along with 40 pounds and out of control feelings.
I am back to eating until I am sick, eating when not hungry, eating fast food, following different diet plans for a week or two and then falling off the wagon and gaining what I lost plus some. EVERYTHING I did prior to weight loss surgery!
I feel out of control.I am so afaid of gaining more back. I went back to my surgeon and his only advice was lap band over my gastric bypass!!! WHAT?! I do not want another surgery.
After an endoscopy, he claims my pouch is stretched out again! What can I do without getting another surgery? I know any diet works, but right now I feel so out of control with binge eating and that feeling of what diet do I try next! Any advice?
