Weight Loss

10 posts in this topic

I was banded on 10/2/13.  Have lost maybe 25 lbs.  Had 1 fill on 11/7.  Think I should have lost more weight.  I can eat anything.  Nothing bothers me.  Is this normal?  2nd fill is on 12/16.  Thanks

3500 calories is a pound (ate or drank)

are you taking in more calories than you burn off?

and just because you can eat more than you should (or was recommended) doesnt mean you should.....

 

congrats on 25 pounds lost.....try picking up 5 bags of sugar and tote that around all day and see how it feels...sounds like you are doing well...losing is based on a person on many different things...who can say....only you know if you eat more cals than you need to or if you exercise...

The average weight loss with the band is 1-2 pounds per week.  You've lost about 5 pounds per week.

 

You didn't gain the weight overnight and it won't come off overnight, either.  It takes time and patience.

Details, details, details. Every time you put something in your mouth, put it down on paper, or in the computer. Measure everything, KNOW what you are doing, don't guess.

My motto through this whole thing has been slow and steady wins the race! I am not showing any HUGE numbers on the scale each month, but I have lost 6 dress sizes and I know for SURE that I will never see those number again except maybe on my winning lotto ticket!

I was banded this year in early August. I had my fourth fill last week - the last three have been 0.5 cc's. I can eat just about anything in moderation by eating slowly and thoroughly chewing. I was 276 two weeks pre-op when I started by 2 week liquid Proteins and am now down to 216. I have had no "stuck" or "sliming" episodes.

As stated, you're are doing great.  Stop looking at the scales, exercise and keep a good food diary.  You'll get there.  My surgeon wouldn't give me a fill the first few months because I was losing adequately.
