I am almost 12 weeks out, had my 3rd follow-up last Friday and was told I've only lost 27 pounds since surgery.! What the heck! I can't believe I've gone through having this RNY surgery and it's hardly working. I tell you this can get so depressing.

I am 55 years old and can except that my weight loss will be slower than if I were in my 20s or 30s, but damn! I don't cheat, I don't eat big portions, I drink tons of water, I don't drink with meals, I'm trying to get enough exercise. I lost 20 lbs. from May to August, while I was preparing for surgery. So why isn't it coming off now? Is it possible that I'm SOL? have you ever heard of such a thing? I'm feeling really sorry for myself just now.
