My name is Anne, I am 4 years out from my Gastric Sleeve. The day of the surgery I was 5’4, and 254, BMI of 44 or so. I followed the diet and exercise guidelines just about as good as anyone can expect (I may have missed a day or two of exercise or ate something I wasn’t supposed to on Christmas, but never got into any bad habits) and I got down to about 165. It wasn’t quite my goal, but it was pretty darn close!
Here’s where the issue comes in, though. About 6 months ago I started to slowly tick up on the scale. Every month was a couple more pounds. I didn’t fundamentally change my exercise or diet habits, for good or for bad, so I’m at a loss as to why this is happening!
I mean, I guess it could be, heaven forbid, that I’m just getting older? Is there something that could be causing this?
Also, what can I do to stop this gain? I guess stop the cheating all together and try and up my exercise routine? Any other suggestions would be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance for the response! Stay strong everyone!
