Hi Dizzy

Firstly, well done on a massive 16st loss! That’s an incredible achievement!

Secondly, you are not alone in this. It isn’t common but neither is it unknown for people to ‘bounce’ back some weight after several years. Doing the pouch test is a good way to go back to basics, as is keeping a food diary, using a portion plate and upping physical activity.

I would also suggest asking your GP to refer you back to a dietitian. Our nutritional needs change the further post op we are, and indeed, the older we get!

Please don’t beat yourself up as it doesn’t solve anything and will just make you miserable. After your wonderful achievement, you should still be feeling proud of yourself. Also, you have asked for help and advice – proof that you are not giving up. Anyone who thinks the wls journey is easy really doesn’t know that they are talking about do they?

Keep in touch and be kind to yourself.
