“I lost all of my regain! 26 pounds gone & I’m back to my lowest adult weight. Plus I’m not done yet!” – Stephanie Raynes
Three years ago Stephanie Raynes had stopped losing weight after her honeymoon period and not only plateaued above goal but also regained – she needed help. After finding the Bariatric Eating Support on Facebook, learning about the plans and seeing them work for others, she gathered the strength to dig in. Slowly the rock began to roll! Read her tale of pure joy. Bravo Stephanie!
Stephanie’s Raynes –
Today I am officially out of the 180’s! I weighed in at 179.8 pounds. I know that is barely out of the 180’s but, 3 years after hitting 181 pounds and then slowly gaining 25 pounds, this feels incredible! I can’t even explain it but I know you all know what I’m talking about!
The best news is that I am not done yet as goal weight, here I come! Thank you Bariatric Eating Support for your amazing support system here on Facebook. Thank you for tough love, thank you for being the Carb Police to those of us who really need them. Thank you for the stories that you all share and use to motivate others. I believe this a great group of women and men – I love reading your struggles, successes and just love for one another.
God is so able, so GREAT! I have been praying about this for years and doubting my ability to achieve this. Yet, when I put it in His hands and found the strength to follow what I should have been doing the whole time, He made it possible…
I am so excited that I forgot to post my news. I have lost all of my regain! 26 pounds gone. Officially back to my lowest adult weight. I am determined to use the new skills I have learned here, to not only break into the 170’s but, to continue losing and hit my actual GOAL weight. I am grateful for the knowledge I’ve gained from this group and the power I feel over my addiction to carbs and sugar.
I always believed my “everything in moderation” lie. Now I know the truth and I feel confident that after 3 1/2 sleeved years and a lifetime of being overweight, that I can finally lose this weight and be successful at keeping it off.
September 13th, I started with the 48 Hour Pouch Reset and immediately realized that I did in fact still have good restriction. I then moved on to the BE Easy Plan and at the same time quit eating white flour, breads, crackers, pretzels, popcorn, and all added sugars. I stick with protein, veggies and a small amount of fruit. I now eat the way I should have been eating immediately after my surgery. I could have saved myself some of this yo-yoing if I’d just followed the rules in the first place!
I don’t feel the cravings for my old trigger foods anymore, even when I’m around them or preparing them. I feel so good both physically and mentally and don’t have that ‘carb hangover’ all of the time. It’s pretty amazing to feel like this. Now, on to my goal weight and maintenance! I AM SO HAPPY, I AM SO STRONG! GOAL HERE I COME AND THIS TIME I KNOW THAT I MEAN IT.
