I had gastric bypass in 2008 and lost around 200 pounds and everything was great. I would sometimes eat too much and paid for it with the awful feelings that can accompany it.
Since Thanksgiving, I seem to be doing nothing but gaining. Has a lot to do with boredom (I work parttime and find I do much better when I work), holidays and family gatherings, and just a feeling of "wanting it".
I have recently started the Special K diet and hope to lose arount 15 pounds. After weighing 368 pounds, I want to get back to around 160 pounds.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated. JaniceView Thread
