    No Weight Loss

    It is a biological defense against starvation...developed by humans over tens of thousands of years of adapting to poor hunting seasons and bad harvests. It's why you're cold all the time, why you get constipated, why you run out of go, why you can feel cloudy and not quite yourself....your body just shuts down everthing possible to keep you from losing anymore weight because it thinks you're dying of starvation. Lots of critters have the adaptation. Torpor. Brumation. Hibernation. Uban legend has it that sometimes kicking up your calories a little bit and doing more physical activity, getting more sunshine...can help snap your body out of it. In another ten thousand years, maybe our bodies will develop a resistance to the excess calories that are shortening our lifespans.......but for now, they're still more into defending against starvation. If only we could explain it to them. LOL.

    Sick of Liquid Diet

    I’ve been there I was losing it, everywhere I looked there was food. It definitely suck but I promise it gets better and makes that first day of purée foods a blessing. I’m 12 days post op and I had the same feeling. TRUST me it gets better and I know it’s easier said then done but it will get better.

    No Weight Loss

    I am experiencing the “three week stall” right now. Rest assured though, you can’t eat what we are eating and not lose weight. I think our bodies just fight it cause they literally Think we are trying to die.

    No BM for 8 days. But TODAY

    It does get a little better when you can start to eat some real food again. Those first couple months are the plain ass devil. I prayed a few times to just let me die, and came out of the bathroom looking like I ran a marathon. I also recommend looking into abdominal massage, hot tea and a heating pad on poop days!!! Happy pooping

    No exercise?

    He could have said that in another way. I think it is sooo great that you are walking. It speaks volumes to how seriously you are taking this lifestyle change. I think maaaaybe the doctor was trying to say it’s 80% diet and 20% exercise and wants you to make the diet a priority? I’m not sure, but in any case.. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK

    No exercise?

    I agree walking is good for your health for many reasons. You can lose most of your excess body weight by following a good nutrition plan with no exercise. Exercise will improve other aspects of your health. There are healthy overweight people and unhealthy people of average weight.

    No Weight Loss

    they're very common during weight loss. I think your body has to stop every once in awhile to "recalibrate" before going on. It happens to almost everyone.
