Regain of 35 lbs after gastric bypass - Getting back on track

- How much weight did you lose before the weight regain started? 130lbs

- How long after surgery did it begin? 5 years

- Which type of weight loss surgery did you have? Gastric Bypass RNY

- What diet, exercise or other factors caused your weight regain? I got pregnant in 2007 (5 yrs after bypass) and gave in to pregnant cravings. I ate a lot..of cheetos. :-\

- What did you do to stop or reverse it? After my son was born, I was left with 35lbs of weight gain. (I gained 60 but quickly lost the first 25..) I got pregnant again in 2009 and gained 25lbs, lost it immediately after delivery and STILL have that 35lbs!

I am trying to get back on track!

Weight Gain After Gastric Bypass
by: kat mol

I also gained about 45 lbs in 9 years. I am very disappointed because I worked so hard and it isn't because of exercise, which I LOVE. I belong to a gym and find myself there 5 or 6 times per week.

I have gone through menopause. Does that also have something to do with it? Help!

gaining 3-4 lbs a year
by: Anonymous

lost 100lbs... now 7 years later gained back 25lbs...seems like 3 to 4 lbs a year is creeping up on me. I am trying to increase my exercise, but I do not eat much and it's hard to cut back on food!! Need to be careful with my choices. I eat lots of cookies, graze through the day and evening. I never a meal (I just pick), and it all adds up...
