Gained Back All the Weight
I'm sure for many of you that are getting ready to head into surgery soon, this is not what you want to hear. I had GBS in 2000 and was quite sucessful with it for about 4 years. While I never reached by goal weight, I did loose almost 100 pounds. I started out at 305 lbs and got as low as 215 lbs in the first 6 months, but stayed there for about 3-4 years before the weight started to creep back on.
Over time, I was able to increase the amount of food I ate at each sitting and then was completely back to what I used to eat. There are still a couple of foods that give me grief - rice and pasta but other than that, I can eat everything that I used to.
This surgery is not the "fix all" that some view it as. It still takes a lot of work.
I have been overweight all of my life and continue to look for ways to reduce my weight. It's always on my mind.
Are there any others out there who have had similar stories?
