      Had my gastric sleeve surgury on 12/28. I have lost about 15 pounds since surgery but have hit a stall. It is soooo frustrating! Any advice is greatly appreciated

        Just be patient. It sounds like a pat answer, but it is literally the only thing you can do to crush the dreaded 3 week stall!

      2. MissSimpson

        We have the same surgery day and the same problem. I’ve lost about 20, then stopped. I’m hardly eating anything, logging everything, getting my water and proteins. I don’t know what’s wrong. It’s so frustrating.

      3. Creekimp13

        Nothing is wrong. Be patient. Eat well. Exercise. Don't panic:)

        I'm in the same boat, i was sleeved 12/29 and lost 15 lbs since surgery, and the scale hasn't moved for me in 3 or 4 days. Its frustrating.

      5. devaunt

        I’ve had the same problem(twice). The first time was about a month after surgery and I added exercise to my day. If you are already walking add 10 minutes. The second time was this last month and I upped my calorie intake slightly. I’ve been exercising pretty hard and my calorie intake was very low. Once I upped the calories by just 100-200(not going over 1200) with the heavy exercise, I started dropping again. I hope that helps.

      I'm doing so well on the new plant-based way of eating! It's been 1 month since my final diet visit, where I found out I had gained about four pounds since my previous visit in November. That meant I had only lost 3 pounds overall from March-December 2017. Ugh, sad trombone. However, in the last 3 weeks of eating a plant-based diet I've lost 13 pounds from my December visit weight! And that includes Christmas and a vacation! So definitely not a "perfect" month by any means. I'm really hoping this way of eating will support my goal of reaching and maintaining 100% of excess weight lost.

        Hey whatever works! I've had a few friends go plant-based and drop a lot of weight naturally.

      I had my consult last Friday and do not have my first "series" of appointments until 2/2. 
      I'd love to have some direction until that date regarding an eating plan ect.

        Were you given any paperwork at the consult that showed what your diet plan would be like after surgery?

      2. proudgrammy

        practice not drinking while you eat, and no drinking for 30-45 minutes after you eat. essential rules for the rest of your life - hard to do, but essential
