Hi all! Just wanted to share my story! My mother n law just had the gastric bypass surgery done not to terribly long ago. And what we've learned about the whole deal, I will put before and after pics when she looses her weight; per her approval ;D They told her that this procedure was for those who were obies? and you have to eat right! We also had a friend of ours his wife did it, and she seriously dropped the weight and I totally didn't recognize her the next time I saw her, but....she gained all the weight back, because she didn't stick to the program? Kinda like fat to skinny??? But "thankfully" she has stuck to the program, and has lost quite a bit of weight! We are all very proud of the sucess that she has come so far!

I know many people that have had the gastric bypass also and only one of my friends is still thin.  Everyone has gained at least a portion of the weight back. The one person I know is extremely thin and I don't know how she does it. At first she was losing too fast and they had to slow it down. So somehow she is still very thin but she doesn't look healthy. Noone else I know has kept the weight off. So statistics show that this is not the best way to go.

Some years ago, my wife and I had a friend that had a lap band implanted above her stomach.
Within six months, she lost over 100 lbs. and looked much better.
She also had a "paleness" (a sort of weak look) about her which we thought was odd.

A couple of years after the surgery, she still had an hourglass figure with a narrow waist.
But her hips, fanny, and thighs became VERY large due to weight gain.

Last time I saw her, she had a large bag of nacho flavored Doritos she was munching on.
Watching her walk away, munching from that bag in her hands, left a remarkable impression on me.

We lost track of her a few years back when she got divorced and moved out of state.
But if we ever run into her again, she will learn about the F2S lifestyle.

I pray that these posts will prevent others from going through a surgery that they really don't need!
What you do today is what matters!

I had the surgery 5 years ago. I dont regret it and have been very lucky to have no medical issues and can eat everything. But mentally i have the same issues...closet eating, stress eating, etc. I still love carbs and junkfood. I did real good the first couple years then pushed my luck and added all the junk back. Now 5 yrs later im eating just like I did before the surgery, and gaining weight back. I think if i stuck to the eating plans and exercised more i would have kept it off, but real life came into play instead. The trick is def no to little carbs eating healthy and exercise. So this plan def has the right ideas. wendyg73
