For those of you that will puruse my diet tracking, DON'T FREAK OUT! @ the low caloric intake. I'll explain...
6 years ago I was 275 pounds and had been yo-yoing since puberty. I chose to have a Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass and went under the knife on January 10, 2004. In a little over a year I had dropped down to 125 pounds and had never been happier.
I managed to level out and maintain a weight of 135 for over 5 years. Then, all of a sudden, I had a lot things hit me at once, Hypothyroidism, extremely high levels of progesterone, daughter was hospitalized with severe depression, etc. I started stress & sneak eating in addition to the never ending hunger felt by the hormonal issues and gained weight. Next thing I knew I was 150 and scared shi!less!
I decided to work on getting back on track and noticed that things are a lot different for gbp patients. If I use the normal formulas to maintain a slow weight loss I end up gaining weight. Due to the forced portion restriction from the gastric bypass my caloric intake has adjusted as well. I gain weight when I eat more than 1400-1600 daily calories. I lose if I stay at 1000 or less. Perhaps this is just the way it works for gbp patients. I don't know many to compare with.
If you have questions, feel free to ask. I know once I mention Gastric bypass I either alienate people or gain a following of those who struggled like I did. I'll answer questions the best I can.
In any case, I am going to get back on track. It's not going to be easy, but I'm going to do it, for ne and that little New Years Eve dress that I'm going to buy!
