Good afternoon everybody! I have to discuss my three year anniversary coming up for my RNY Gastric Bypass on July 28 and how I am not losing weight. I have notice that I am floating between gaining 5 pounds and then losing it. Even thought my goal weight is only 20 pounds away. The thought of even hitting 220 makes me cringe and sink down into a depressed mode. I refused to go back to the old fat lady that couldn’t even walk around Wal-Mart to get grocery without tiring out quickly.
I also blame myself for my kids being overweight. My son wants to lose about 70 pounds and I feel like my bad eating habits are something that I passed on to him. Not to mention my fatty genes. Some people argue that there is no such thing as fatty genes but I be to differ on that. Now I know good eating habits could be taught and learned but when you know only how to throw fatback grease in everything you cook. Not county deep frying everything in grease. Eating starchy and bread all day. I found this one research that states that men can passed fatty genes on to their offspring but he could be alter by losing weight also. However they were not able to prove that fatty genes were heredity. I will included the link at bottom of the page.
Learning and maintaining good eating habits are must on any weight loss journey. I don’t care if you have had the Gastric Bypass or not. You will never be able to eat any and everything and not worry about health issues such as weight gain or medical issues. There has not been a way to safe and healthy way to lose weight and keep it off. Besides eating healthy and exercising on a constant basic.
I am at that point in my journey where unfortunately you can start regaining weight. THIS is the most crucial time in my life. I am focusing on maintaining and keeping the weight off for the rest of my life. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I continue to fight this struggle. Oh how I wish I was one of those that just kept losing weight. NOT Tracy!!
Love, Peace and Happiness and healthy choices.
