welcome to the forums!!! I have a brother that had gastric bypass several years ago, he got really skinny, started looking sick. We were all worried, unfortunately he didn't change his ways and now is close to where his was before the surgery.

We are all here for you. Stay around and post often!

Yup, my BIL did the same thing, twice.

Now a lady I work with had the lap band thing and has done really well. Of course, she had to actually gain weight to be able to qualify for it :cool: I think she was, perhaps, 50 lbs. overweight. Now she's super skinny and seems healthy.

We all do what we think is best, and by all means, BigGirl, welcome to FitDay!

Regards,
Michael

Welcome!

Do they give you post-op advice on the types of foods to eat and how to maintain the weight loss?

Won't it make you really sick if you go over your 'limit'? I don't really know very much about it, but would love to see you stick around :)

Congrats Biggirl! You made the most of a year that I wasted. Hoping this next year is mine for the taking! Good luck with your continued success!
