Goal Weight: I'm at goal

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Making the lifestyle and behavioral changes that comes with being a postop

Following any specific plan: Just a sensible diet..I only count calories

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: It forced me to really look at myself, face the issues that caused me to eat and become MO..it has humbled me.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Just do it for YOU..it will only work if you work it..and always remember..it's just a tool..nothing is forever..at this point postop..almost 5 years..it's like I never had surgery (cept for dumping *which is a GOOD thing*)..it makes those changes that are required come in handy..without making those changes..it will be a much harder journey.
