  1. I am about 11 weeks post op and I have lost 36 lbs since surgery day. I have some weeks when I lose 4 lbs and some where I stall and lose nothing. My doctor suggested weighing myself once a week instead of daily to help me see that my progress may be slow, but it is moving me towards my goal. I use an app that tracks of percentage of weight loss, instead of just lbs, which helps me see how far I have come.

  2. SW: 274.4 Surgery Day: 265 CW: 231.2 GW: 159 Surgery Date: May 23, 2019 I am almost 9 weeks post op, and it was the most challenging times in my life. Never think this is a quick fix! I have lost 43.2 lbs, over 15% of my body weight. I feel so much better, but eating is still a daily struggle to change old habits. I finally notice the inches lost and the energy gained, but still have 72 lbs left to lose. Has anyone lost the excess weight and got to a BMI under 25? It seems so far away.

  3. I am post op gastric sleeve 5 weeks, and I have not lost weight in 5 days, just stayed the same. It is so frustrating because I am hungry all the time but can't get much in my stomach. Anyone else have this with the sleeve? I have lost a total of 20 lbs, then nothing for almost a week now. Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app
  4. I have the same problem. My SW on surgery day was 265 and I have lost 7.8 lbs in 2 weeks. I have to keep reminding myself that this will pass and I might lose slow than someone with a higher BMI (mine is 40.3). Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Post OP regrets

    I am now 16 days post OP and feeling much better. My weight loss has not been as much as I hoped, but my surgeon says I am on track for a person of my height and starting weight. (7.8lbs down since surgery!) I deal with depression every day, so I am learning to not be as hard on myself. I feel limited by what I can eat, but am trying to replace food thoughts with planning new activities with friends and family to keep me busy. Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app
  6. I am 5 days post OP and starting to regret my decision to have VSG. Does anyone else feel like this? I thought I was prepared but mentally and physically it is really hard. Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    MAY 2019 date

    I had my surgery May 23 and had similar pain to deena1516 the next day post OP. My gas pains were terrible but I walked and walked and stayed active. The pain meds help but are not everything. I am day 3 post OP now and getting used to the puree diet. I keep getting gas bubbles from eating or drinking too fast. I have no regrets yet, I am down 9 lbs since my liver shrinking diet started on May 11, lost 4 lbs post OP, total of 13lbs lost so far.

    3 more days for me! I am having VSG on May 23 and the liquid diet is no fun at all. I am hoping my hunger subsides after I wake up from surgery. I am very nervous and excited. I have lost 6 lbs from the liquid diet. My weight today is 267 lbs and I am 5'7''. How much did people lose in the first month???? Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Waiting

    I am still waiting for my pre OP test results from the barium swallow and EKG. Waiting on a surgery date, almost 2 weeks after the tests were completed. What is taking so long? I am approved by insurance just waiting on surgeons office. How long did it take others? Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app
  15. How long after you were authorized from insurance did you get a surgery date? I know you need pre op testing as well. My insurance should be letting me know next week! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using BariatricPal mobile app
