I had the Roux en Y gastric bypass in January, 2003. The first 145# loss was easy---I wasn't eating! However, with time, poor eating habits crept back in, and the weight loss slowed down and even reverses. I had managed to get down to 200#, but regained 47# (Errrrggggh!) Now, I'm having to revamp my eating habits, to include nutritious foods, and LOTS of exercise!
