I am just me!!! I had gastric bypass surgery on June 17, 2009. I lost a total of 130 lbs but, have recently gained about 20 lbs give or take a few. They say that 20 is natural but I don't like it at all. I've also noticed I have not taken in enough protein and my muscle has turned to fab (if you will). It has become discouraging. So, i've decided to keep track on FatSecret so I know exactly what i'm taking in. I've started to eat better and start off with a smaller exercise routine and build it back up to where i was. Many life factors happened and basically made me give up. I won't let that happen again...i will succeed at this. If anyone has any suggestions i am all ears and will try. Hope everyone has as much luck on their journey as I have.

Thanks for the info. I'm going to change my RDI tomorrow to 1200 and see how that works. I hardly ever seem to reach my 1800 calories anyway. (Friday nights out maybe but I wont give that up..I just changed what I drink). Hopefully, I will see a small result within the next week. Appreciate the help.

Thanks for the advice. I used the calorie suggested intake from the site but I don't seem to reach even 1200 on most days. I did 3 months at a gym doing 2 hours a day of ecercise and my results were weight gain. I know we build muscle and that adds weight but I got fustrated and stopped. I do crunches, squats, and a lot of ecercises with arm weights. Unfortunately, this site isn't spacefic enough with the "type" of exercises I do. The other problem I am having is understanding the Kcal's. I seem to be getting a green down arrow daily on my chart on the days I exercise. The days I don't record it (intentionally) the arrow isn't there. Are these good calories?

I'm following a much better diet then i was previously. I eat high protein foods like i'm supposed to. I am exercising daily and yet, i'm pretty fustrated getting on the scale. My weight increased and i'm not sure why. Everytime I increase my exercise I seem to gain weight. I think protein shakes will be my best friend for the next few days!!
