I had the gastric sleeve surgery 2 years ago this March.
First year, dropped weight like a rock. It was fantastic. I kept to the diet and exercise instructions my doc gave me and just about every time I jumped on the scale my weight dropped.
But then, I fell off the wagon. Not literally, but almost : )
Biking became my go-to exercise. SO much fun! Until my tire blew up on some glass and I went over my handlebars that is. I was bedridden for weeks and I regained a bunch of the weight I lost after the sleeve.
My doc just cleared me to full health from the bike accident. But, I feel like I have to start over this weight loss process, which is just honestly kinda discouraging.
So, I was hoping for some strategies to jump start this process over again. Should I try and “reset” with a liquid diet for a while? Any kind of exercises I should focus on? I’m honestly a little scared of my bike now (jeez, did that pavement hurt), any suggestions for another good form of exercise that’s like biking?
Thanks so much! Good luck to everyone going through this!!
