Doesn't matter what surgery you have, the day will come when you realize the easy weightloss is over. And once again you are faced with the reality of diets, increased exercise, and less food. During the honeymoon, it's easy to fall into that false hope that you will just effortlessly maintain for the rest of your life. I guess it happens for a few but most of us end up back in diet mode sooner or later. This is why I'm always telling people not to waste those precious days of easy weightloss. And if you are lucky enough to reach goal, try for 10% below goal so you have some room for that seemingly inevitable gain. Yes, you may be less than a year post and the weight is still falling off. You are lucky today but your luck will run out! Lose as much as you can while you can. It will be much harder to lose down the road. Why does this happen? If you had a malabsorbtive procedure, your body will do it's best to adapt and return to normal. And normal means fat for us. The small bowel that's not bypassed may lengthen and sprout some new villi to absorb as much as possible. That teeny tiny stomach you used to have gets bigger too. You can eat more. This is why we stop losing and many eventually gain. If you had a procedure that is restrictive only like the band or the sleeve, you may learn how to eat around the band. And once that stomach gets bigger, the sleeve doesn't help you nearly as much as it used to. You can easily find yourself back in that eat less and less mode while still gaining weight. Of course, it's not fair and it's not right. But it's real life. Even though you took extreme measures to lose weight, you are still going to have to fight to maintain that loss. Darn it! Resolve not to sabotage yourself in the beginning by believing you have beaten your weight problem into submission forever. But it's not the hopeless problem it was before surgery, we can manage it but it's work. Hard work. I've been on one forum or another for more than a decade. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people worried about losing too much and how to stop the loss. Some even go to their surgeons and ask about revision or pharmacological intervention to stop losing. Some intentionally eat all the wrong things because they have lost too much too fast. There's about a 97% chance these same people will be back on the board in a year or so struggling to reach goal and lose more weight. It happens over and over. Lose as much as you can while you can! Don't even think about about losing too much unless your BMI gets too low. Like under 20. That rarely happens. I can only remember 2 people out of all the thousands I've followed who actually needed help to stop losing!
