    emet1976 got a reaction from SublimeLemons in Asking older sleevers, did I make a mistake?   
    Thank you, gradycat. It really does help to know we're not alone. I will dispute the calories in/calories out theory ALL DAY LONG : ) I know I don't eat near as many calories as I naturally burn, not even including the exercising I do. So it really just comes down to what our own bodies are capable of doing and when they choose to burn or store. Everyone is different that's for sure!
    Congrats on your success by the way - this is not easy!

    I am exactly the same. I was sleeved on 2/20. Lost 55lbs pretty quickly and then the brakes went on! I've been stuck and teetering with a 1-2lb loss (and gain) for over a month now. I still follow the rules and mostly do Keto foods so it's very frustrating. I feel like this is it - and once I can up my intake to the full 8oz per meal that I'll stop losing altogether and actually start to gain. I too have felt like I should've gone with bypass. Glad to know I'm not alone!

    emet1976 got a reaction from DanaC84 in 2 week stall   
    I feel the same way. I had my surgery on 2/20. That morning I was 272. I came home from the hospital at 279 from the fluids. Today, 19 days post-op, I'm 259. BUT according to my weight loss clinic I'm sure they'll go by the 272 so they'll only see a 17 pound loss in 3 weeks (I have my first post-op appt. this week). 259 is an increase from 2 days ago by the way! How can I gain when I've literally had 500 calories or less a day?! I too feel deflated and like I could eat pizza and chips and at least justify a gain! I think you and I are similar in our numbers and height so I was somewhat pleased to see your post. Thanks for sharing.

    Awesome!! I'm about 25lbs down if I go back to Feb. 6th when I started the pre-op. I guess I just hoped for the 2lb loss daily for the first 2 weeks post-op but hey, we're on the "loser's bench!"

    Thank u! All went well. At home & just trying to adjust. The cut where the drain was is the most sore. And the gas pains!

    Do you work - did you take time off work after surgery if you do?
