  1. Good morning everyone! I'm about a year and 5 months post op RNY and I just got a Fitbit and am looking for people to keep each other motivated. I'm leaving my email address if you would like to add me and others can add theirs if they would like some friendly motivation too! Here is my email: FTroublebubbles@gmail.com Looking forward to some good competition and fun!
  2. I'm so happy everyone is doing better! Whoo hoo may peeps! I'm doing better too! Finally busted that stall after 2 and a half weeks! My doc doesn't have protein requirements which I find odd so I was only getting 20-30grams a day. I tried upping my protein, water, and calories a day and it worked! Finally! Yes! Lost another 5 pounds in the last 5 days bringing the weight lost since surgery to 18 pounds! Yay!
  3. Lol, I also upped my calories, protein, and water intake and busted my stall too! Yay!
  4. I feel your pain! I haven't lost anything in 2 weeks. I lost 13 pounds in the first week post op. I am now 3 weeks, almost 4 weeks post op. The scale hates me. I don't get what I'm doing wrong either so if you get some info please fill me in cause I'm getting really depressed about all this.
  5. Not in my book it's not. Walking isn't enough.
  6. Doc said I couldn't exercise until 6 weeks post op so all I'm allowed to do right now is walk.
  7. Right there with you! I had RNY done one May 27th and lost 13 pounds the first week. But I've been stalled for 2 weeks straight now. I feel the same way. Why did I have this surgery done if I'm not going to lose anything?! I am a little over 3 weeks post op.

    I had RNY on May 27th. I also have my fitness pal! Add me! Mwarner28
  9. My doc stopped my protein shakes at 2 weeks post op but he has no protein requirements either. No protein shakes is fine with me. I don't much care for them.

    I actually have a lot of energy, I walk everyday, get all my fluids, but I'm lucky if I'm even able to get in 500 calories a day. I track EVERYRHING! It's just SUPER frustrating!

    I've been at a stall since about a week after surgery and now it's been 12 days since the stall started and I still haven't lost anything. How long have your stalls lasted? I'm starting to lose hope here. Super depressed the scale won't move.
  12. Hooray !!!! So awesome. Whatever your doing just keep it up. ????Thank you ❤️ I hope you are doing better!!?Thanks Salonboi. I am doing better. It's gets easier. Still a work in progress but easier. ???? Ain't that the truth!!!! I'm noticing that I'm getting less and less head hunger pains, and am having to remember to eat phase. I'm still getting my 70+ grams of protein in and 64oz of water, but mainly from my protein shakes. I got sick off my beloved chicken, and am to scared to try again to soon. I'm doing apt of cheese and salads with veggies... I'm feeling like I'm fu*@@ing up my diet for some reason by being this way... Like I'm failing at getting proper nutrition. But things taste so different, and haven't gone back to normal yet, so I'm still limited on what I like. I know it'll change.... So no worries ???? I feel like I'm on the Atkins diet right now lol.Right there with ya salonboi! Still at a stall and I feeling I'm screwing everything up because the stupid scale isn't moving! Ah! Definitely feeling like I'm failing somehow. Day 12 of this stall... :-(

    @@TLW I feel the same way. This stall is driving me NUTS! I also think my body just needs time to adjust but that doesn't make it any less frustrating.

    @@TLW I have been in a stall since I hit 10 days post op. Today makes day ten of my stall... I'm hoping it ends sometime soon.
  15. It was around the 3 week mark and lasted 2 weeks for me. Each week for me after surgery was a new progression of diet. So soft food phase for me started stall. You just can't worry it's not gonna work, cause its gonna do what it is designed to do. We're hardly able to much, so our bodies are trying to pull a starvation mode thingy, and saying hey, we're not getting enough, let's hold onto everything. And if you are doing all of your water plus protein, you will start losing again. I bumped up my calories naturally, and that snapped my stall. But it was because I felt hungry, and wanted a bit more. Not a forced type situation.. It's scary knowing everyday, our honeymoon phase end is approaching, and yes it's still a ways off, but when you follow rule to the "T" we're like WTH.. Why am I not losing faster. But getting caught up in the numbers game is maddening. I knew the surgery wasn't gonna make it all come off in a month or two, but everyone said it just melts off. And for some that is true, and others it's not. And unfortunately that's just the way a person is built right!? But essentially, it goes back to not comparing yourself to any other persons journey with WLS. We all, as you know, are unique and have different health factors that determine our progress. I wish you continued success. ????????????❤️ Thanks Salonboi. I needed that. We all do expect the weight to just melt off. As frustrating as it is to not see the scale move, I know it will. Patience is not something I'm known for but I guess now is as good a time as any to really try and learn it.
