  1. I know this sounds odd. But at 260 I used the handicapped ladies restroom stall. Because I needed more space. Even though I'm very slow at losing weight. 55 pounds since November. But the happy part is comfortable in a regular bathroom stall. I know it doesn't sound like much but for me it is one more step Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app
  2. I've been on a stall for over 2 months. And I'm in full panic mode. I feel I'm doing everything wrong Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Slow Losers Club…..officially *sigh*

    I am a super slow lose too! Nov 26 I was 247. 5 months later I'm 198. My dr said I'm slow. I don't workout due to medical reasons. I work 9 hours a day. I'm 63. I got so upset I quit longing. I eat just about the same things daily. Protein drink with protein powder. Chicken, tuna, I'm just not moving much. I'm sad over it. I guess slow and steady wins the race. I'm slow and stalling all the time. Depressing.. Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Not doing good

    My surgery was 10/26/22 Weight was 247 Cw. 199. I'm not eating much or tracking my intake. I walk about a mile about workout 2 times a week. I'm not losing belly fat at all. I feel I'm doing very poorly.. and all my hair is falling out. I feel like crying all the time it didn't help my mother died a month ago and all I've done was sit.. I'm so sad Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Not losing anything??

    My surgery was November 26, I've only lost 26 pounds. Been on a stall for 3 weeks! Not one ounce lost. I'm so upset. Actually it showed I gained a pound. I get 90% of my water in and all my protein in. No changes in my measurements either Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app
  8. I'm so worried and frustrated.. I am really starting to feel more hungry. I workout 2 times a day 25 minutes each round. I put a pound back on. I feel like I'm doing everything wrong! Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app
  9. I didn't know what to expect. I keep getting from all my friends how people they know lost so much more . It was making me second guess everything I was doing. I'm losing slow but not as panicked! Thanks Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app

    November Surgery Buddies!!!

    Me too! I feel like I am failing! I lost 18 pounds in the first 3 weeks.. now I'm at 6 weeks and no more loss but a pound gained! And I am NOT pooping like a champ. Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app
  11. I never have that full feeling. I am 5 weeks out and food doesn't bother me. I just ate 1/2 cup chicken salad. No problems. This frightens me! I am trying to eat foods for protein not just smoothie with protein powder in it. Advise please. Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Protein intake day 4 question

    I've been worried because I never have that full feeling. Even after 1/2 cup chicken salad. Or a protein drink. Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app
  13. I'm feeling worried,. I'm not getting all my protein in or water. I'm getting like 50 ounces of water in and 50 to 60 protein in. And not losing weight. I can't walk much I need a new hip and back surgery. I feel like I am failing.. sad for me Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app
  14. Inuse the isopure. I mix it with premier protein shake or fairlife protein core elite. Together I get 60 protein in 4 meals. But thr strawberry.. yuck to sweet for me.i do vanilla or if I have to chocolate Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app

    food

    Kroger makes the best turkey bacon. It's simple truth! Tastes like Canadian bacon. Fry it a little longer and it's just yummy Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app
  18. Oh also try lemon water or slushie. It's not sweet Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app
  19. Let's just start over! Here's a great idea! I've done this with people that hate water. Maybe try making a slushie! Blend your ice with any flavor low sugar . Even the dollar store sells Hawaiian punch flavor sugar free. Eating ice can be easier. Try freezing your protein smoothie. Make it like a soft serve. If your protein powder is lousy that's hard. Get a vanilla flavored one. Freezing makes all the difference. You feel like your eating and yet it's getting your food intake it. It's like a melted frosty. I've been worried case my weight loss has been so slow compared to everyone else. But you can stall right out of the gate. Your body has to get used to everything again. My surgery was Nov 26 and finally lost 18 pounds. But I'm not getting my walks in. My fault I need a new hip. Good luck with the slushie! God bless Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app
  20. I'm 60ish.. had my bypass Nov 26. Down just 18 pounds. But I can't walk as much with bad back and need a new hip. Just stick to the plan. It will happen might take a little more time because we are older but we have the time. And we won't have the drastic look of our face looking as old because it will come off slower. It will happen. We have time that's for sure! You will be fine. Sent from my SM-A716U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Thank you so much! My surgery was 11/26. I've lost 17 pounds. I have not gotten my daily walks in like I should. I need a new hip and back surgery. But using a glider 3 days a week.fkr about 15 minutes at a time. I walk in the house and making sure I'm up every 15 minutes for some reason. I'm an older woman that's 5'3 and now 219. Nov 3rd I was 247. I lost 10 pounds before surgery. You took so much time to explain it to me thank you. I'm at another stall. And the wonderful constipated!

    Only 9 pounds almost 4 weeks post op

    It took me a while to get all the water in. I measure the protein I'm supposed to have for the day. At this point I'm not sure of anything! I keep second guessing it all. My friends all had this surgery and lost 20 to 40 pounds the first month. Yes I'm older and can't walk that much with a bad hip. I'll just keep trying. I'm gonna write my nurse tomorrow. I just don't know what else to do. I need to start logging everything. I just don't have the time or mental energy with my mother needing all my time. Good luck to us!

    Only 9 pounds almost 4 weeks post op

    I'm worried because I didn't log anything! Taking care of my hospice mother and my husband thought now was a good time for a puppy! I started second guessing myself. Did I eat to soon before the 14 days. Am I eating to much. I do know now my smoothies are to thick. I just found out that it is supposed to be as thin as mill. I hope I didn't cause this to be a wreck! I don't know how to look up other posts on baritricpal on This app . Thanks for thr kid words. I've been really upset.
