  1. I've only lost 11lbs and I am almost one month post op. Honestly its slightly annoying but I tell myself all sorts of things that are TRUE to make me feel better like: - My body is probably like WTF is going on? I dropped 17lbs pre op and 11lbs post op all in 4 weeks time and now my body is taking a break (Im in a two and half week stall). - I can see changes in my body and the way my clothes fit even though I am not seeing changes on the scale - Yes, I might be a slow loser but hopefully that means it won't be so hard on my body and I won't lose my alot of hair or have gallblader problems. - It would of been very hard for me to lose those 11lbs without the surgery.
  2. Hello! Sleeved 05/31. I have lost 11lbs since surgery, yes not a lot but I have been in a stall the last two weeks and I know the scale will start moving again. My body is like WTF, is happening?! with losing 17lbs pre op and 11lbs post op in a months time so I am okay with my post op progress. I feel pretty good. Two weeks post op was a turning point for me. I got my energy back and I haven't encountered any dips in my mood which I was worried about. I am tolerating most foods I have tried fairly well. I am so excited about this process and really look forward to what my life is going to look like a year out. I was just so tired of my weight holding me back!

    one week post op weight stall

    I am so glad to read this. I am almost one month post op and I only lost in that first ten days post op and the last two weeks have been nothing. I only weigh once a week but it can still be frustrating. I know I will start losing again and that my body is probably in shock from losing so much weight since starting the pre-op. Plus I try to go off measurements and non-scale victories as well.

    Any MAY sleevers???

    For those of you struggling with low energy are you tracking your calories and macros? I ensure I am getting 600 to 800 calories a day, my water intake is good (plus electrolytes) and my vitamins are on point. 6 days out of 7 I feel amazing and feel like I have way more energy than before (knock on wood). I definitely notice my energy is low when I am consuming less then 600 calories. Plus increasing my calories I think is what broke my stall!

    2 weeks Post Op

    I had my surgery the same day as you and I admit I am feeling discouraged as well. According to the scale I have only dropped 6lbs. I have noticed a big difference in myself though so I am trying to not take the scale to heart. I do experience a hunger sensation as well even though I think it might be attributed to too much acid as I currently have acid reflux and when I do eat I don't really get that full sensation but I think that will come when I am on solid foods.
  6. I have a desk job with a desk that can change from sitting to standing and I returned to full days at 7 days post op and was just fine. I am 15 days post op now and feel amazing!
  7. Did anyone get acid reflux so soon after surgery? What did you take for it?

    Week 2 no weight loss?!

    I am in this same boat now. I lost 10lbs the first week, gained 2lbs back, and have been stalled for the last 6 days. How long did it take before the weight loss started again for you guys? I am hoping that this is just the famous 3 week stall early!

    I feel so down

    Trust me, I am very happy with 8lbs in the first week. But I have been stalled since from day 7 post op to now. I haven't read of people stalling so soon. But I am tellling myself that I am am just getting the infamous 3 week stall 2 weeks early so I won't have to go through it then. Fingers crossed! lol

    I feel so down

    I am 15 days post op and have only lost 8lbs and I started at a higher weight than you if that makes you feel better? Plus I have been stalled for a week
  11. I have a desk job and I returned after 7 days and it was fine. I have a desk that goes from standing to sitting so I made sure to alternate often. I am 13 days post op and I feel awesome (knock on wood).

    I think maybe your Nutritionist is coming from a place where they don't want you to become obsessed with calorie counting? Who knows? I am definitely trying to get my calories up in hopes that I don't destroy my metabolism either. I am two weeks post op and I average 450 to 600 a day but yesterday I got up to 700. My Nutritionist told me I should be getting at least 60 grams of protein a day and try to stay above 500 calories a day for this soon out of surgery but to get it to 1000 as soon as I can without over filling my sleeve. She said for the first couple months you should be eating/drinking a shake every 2ish hours. This is what my calories and grams of protein look like right now: 7am - 270 cal/ 30g - Morning Protein powder (120 cal, 20g ) and a cup and half of lactose free milk (150 cal, 10g) 10am - 80 cal/ 1g - Half of cup of pureed sweet potato and lentil soup Noon - 50 cal/ 8g - Half a cup of greek yogurt watered down 3pm - 160 cal/ 20g - Premier Protein Shake 6pm - 100 cal/ 3g - Tomato soup with a little greek yogurt mixed in. So that puts me at 660 calories a day and 61 grams of protein. This does not include all my water/tea. I feel like am constantly having to eat to get this high but I don't want to get fatigued or malnourished. Soon as I can start having soft foods I am hoping to get it to 800 at least.

    Gained 4 kg in 9 days!

    Yes I am very interested in hearing this too! I totally believe this theory is correct and I would love to work my way up to 1000-1200 calories as soon as possible. Yesterday I got 650 (two weeks post op) and I feel so much better today but I can't see how I could fit much more than that as it seemed I was constantly sipping a protein shake throughout the day and I am doing fairly well with my liquids right now. What did your daily menu look like CreeKimp13 when you first started getting 1200 calories in?Insert other media
  14. I have been stalled since one week post-op and I am currently 13 days days post op. I know stalls come and go but I really wasn't expecting to have one this soon and I am feeling slightly disheartened. I think it has encouraged me to stop weighing every 2 or 3 days to weigh once a week or two. Anyone else experience a stall so soon??

    Gained 4 kg in 9 days!

    Its most likely fluid retention or something of the sort. I gained 5lbs this morning from the last time I weighed myself 3 days ago but I know I am ovulating and I tend to bloat during that time.
