How are you all doing?  I am dealing with regain and not liking it at all! There are some days I regret having my RYN done.  I seriously need some help getting back on track.  I am looking into the on at Barix.  Its online and would fit my schedule better.

Good luck with it.  I gained a few pounds over the summer drinking cappuccinos and lattes while dealing with a running foot injury, but am losing this weight slowly now.  I gave up the caloric beverages and drink only water, decaf tea and decaf coffee.  Once or twice a week I will treat myself to regular coffee but no flavored drinks.  It is working.  I have an appt. with Dr. Holland in December for a followup.

I learned to deal with the pain of the foot injury through other coping mechanisms and realized that as a bariatric patient, it is taking a long time to deal with the pain because we are extremely limited in medications for swelling.  So I still run but 1-2x per week otherwise the pain is severe, bike, do aerobics, hike and walk 5 miles daily.  I am dealing much better now.  I got $600 orthodics and $45 orthodics in 2 pairs of my shoes.  I have bunions and toe bones growing crookedly, but I am not handicapped for life.  Thank God!  That was my worst nightmare---not being able to run again and getting fat again.

I am taking a bariatric class with nutritionist and bariatric psychologist/counselor at a different institition on Monday nights.  This is helping me as well.

BUT healing is occurring very slowly.  I see it in hindsight.  Next 5K run is 11-11-2012.

Can you forward me the name of the program you are using?  I would rather find one in person than do it online.  Thanks!

SHH used to have a back to basics program as well.  Call their office to find out....

The one at St. Luke's costs money; and since they are in the midst of one; it might be awhile till they have a new one starting....

Try utilizing the www.livingafterwls.com site.  Try doing the 5-day pouch test - to get you started.

One day at a time, one moment at a time, keep getting up when we fall and trying to move one foot forward... even if it seems we are not going anywhere.... this journey is sure not for the faint of heart or those who have "give-up-itiveness" but we must all have "stic-to-itiveness"
