    Stop weighing yourself every day, pick a day of the week then weigh once a week. The same day every week. Now with this being said, your body is trying to hold on to everything right now bc we are not giving our body anything in return. Our bodies are in shock right now and does not know what to do. The first month or so after surgery weight loss should not be your concern. It should be about healing and taking care of your body and getting ready for this life changing event. Stay off the scale everyday! You will not lose anything stressing your already stressed out body.

    I am experiencing the exact same thing. I am going to trust the process and the big picture and not the scale.

    fatnomore2017 reacted to blizair09 in Estrogen and weight stall   
    I can't speak to the estrogen, but I can tell you that almost everyone experiences a stall at about the 3 week mark. Search "three week stall" on this forum or in google and you'll find tons about it. My advice is to stay off of the scale for the first month. Your body is desperately trying to begin the healing process and that takes priority for it over losing weight. Your job is to meet your Protein and Water goals everyday and stick to your plan regarding your food stages. If you do everything you are supposed to do, the weight will start to come off eventually.
    Good luck!

    Hello everyone!
    I usually don't create a whole topic just for myself, but today is a little special since it has been exactly one year since I've had my surgery, time sure flies, especially when you go through a physical change of this ... magnitude.
    In a year, I have indeed lost 53kilos (117pounds according to google). I never thought I would look like I do today and I am really glad I took the dicision of having my gastric sleeve, it has helped my health (no more sleep apneas! I can swim and bike again!), it has changed my perspective toward food (I actually prefer eating now since I don't hate myself after each meal anymore), I have changed my life habits in many ways and last but not least, I feel way happier nowadays.
    Here are so before after after pics
    Before:


    And these after some after pictures:

    So, yeah, voilà! Good luck for everyone! I know the first months are quite hard, but it was all worth it for me, and I could not be more glad about the results!
    Have a great day

    I've had the same haircut since 8th grade. I think I'm ready for a change but not sure what. I looked up men's haircuts and they all seem so complicated.

    I agree, I lost 50 pounds before my surgery and I used two Meal Replacements and had dinner at night which was usually salad or grilled chicken and veggies. I also exercised as often as I could.

    Hello everyone, I had my sleeve on March 2nd. Was floored at my first weigh in today - 21 pounds since the surgery! I am so excited - definitely made these last two weeks worth the effort. I am also feeling great! Asked my doctor to release me back to work early but he still feels I should get some more rest if I'm able? For those just getting it done, push through any pain and regret - I know I'm still new too, but I promise you it gets better! Hope everyone else is doing as well.

    fatnomore2017 reacted to nonnilynn in 4th week post op have not lost weight sense week one.   
    My surgery was Feb 28 and, having followed all of the rules, my weight loss has been disappointing. I also find that I am not voiding as often as I would have with all of my fluids, pre-surgery. So, yesterday at my follow up visit with my GP, I finally got some encouragement. Here's what she said. "You are still in protection mode with your body. It
    does not know that you did this on purpose. Your body will hold onto everything it can until it knows it's okay to let go". What a tremendous help that simple statement turned out to be. So now I'm continuing with the plan for Week Two and relaxing. Hope this helps

    I just had sleeve today. My only problem is I was over thinking everything. Just relax and go with the flow. That is difficult until who arrive in pre on...I was nervous and excited at same time the evening before. God Bless and good luck to all of you March 2nd sleevers

    fatnomore2017 reacted to Deneishia in 8 months after sleeve   
    My weight loss journey started in 2010 when I weighed 386 pounds. I became stagnant and didn't lose any weight for several years after I lost the initial 100 pounds.

    I got the sleeve in June of 2016 and it saved my life.

    Learning how to eat again has been fiffucult. Learning how to eat around my food addiction has been especially difficult.

    But im happier than I've ever been and I'm going to run a 5k next month!

    Keep your head up and keep doing the right things for your body. I have found that sometimes it helps me to not weight daily. I'm working on learning that number does not define me as a person...I'm so much more.
