Default Still trying to get to goal weight

My name is Tracy and I have been viewing this website over the years. 2 1/2 years ago I had weight loss surgery. I was at 351 and was having trouble walking and doing much of anything. I thought that was my last resort so I took the plunge. I went in for a gastric sleeve and came out with a rouyen y gastric bypass. Although I was unhappy with the surgery for the first year and a half, I have made it through 2 and 1/2 years with great success. I am at 205 today and started following the metabolic research diet because it is high in protein and that is what I need to live. My goalk weight however is 165 and I am no where near there. I am not sure how to get there honestly. A few good things have come out of my surgery besides losing weight. I have better outlook on life, I can exercise again, I feel good most days, I am never hungry (who would have thought that) and sugar makes me sick (again who would have though that). But I still have sugar cravings and don't know how to get get past that. Any suggestions?

Has anyone else had a rouyen y gastric bypass and what did you do to lose the rest of the weight after surgery.

Welcome to the forum! Congrats on your weight loss success. Losing almost 150 lbs is amazing!
I do not have a ton of advice. You might try posting in the Weight Loss Surgery forum on this site and see if you can get some helpful advice there.
I just wanted to let you know I think your amazing and to keep trying!

Wow 150 pounds!! That's amazing!

You still have sugar cravings - how about trying Aktin's bars or deserts? They're not exactly the best tasting things in the world but they hit the spot for a lot of people when they're craving something sweet.

Smile Atkins Bars

I haven't tried Atkins bars in years so maybe the taste has gotten better. Thanks for the advice.

Congrats on your 150 pound weight loss. I myself chew that extra dessert gum and that has worked for me for reducing sugar cravings
