I personally didn't after 3yrs. I got pregnant and from that point on I was never thin again.
I never got as big as I was when I had the surgery, but I was never that gorgeous self that I was just shortly afterward. (1982).
I'm very ill now with a chronic, progressive conditon called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy and I just have to lose weight. I'm in a wheelchair but the few steps I have to take are so hard I know it would be easier if I weighed less.
Anyway, I just wondered, if you guys wouldn't mind telling me if you re-gained your weight too?
I am 2 years and 3 months out and have not regained at all. I am still losing a lb here and there, now and then. BUT I am a life coach that specializes in working with bariatric patients to help them maintain weight loss or get back on track and eliminate the regain. So I am very careful to keep myself in check and to walk my talk.
I wish you all of the best in getting the regain off, and I hope you will be able to leave the wheelchair behind one day soon.
