This is an interesting article: Obesity Surgery Yields Clues To Weight Loss Mystery
A couple of thoughts...
1. It mentions that one third of us with WLS will regain all of our weight within 7-10 years. I vow right now that will not be me.
2. It says that those of us with WLS : "They're losing more weight than they ever had before and not only are not hungry, they have to force themselves to eat."
Lord I wish!
3. Turns out that the brain have to do more with hunger than they previously thought. Um...hullloooo!
4. I thought it was interesting the different way a gastric bypass patients body handles the hormone ghrelin vs those of us with the band.
