    Not losing very depressed

    Ok first off stop beating yourself up about not losing more weight you've lost 20 pounds, second are you writing down everything your eating? third are you getting in at least 64 oz of water and 65-85 grams of protien??? I have lost about 103 pounds in about 14 months I too get down and depressed when I see other people like my friend who's lost 135 in 9 months. Everyone is different and loses at a different rate. How many fills have you had? I would start with making sure you don't need a fill, then I would either do liquids for 2 days or the 5 day pouch test to jump start weight loss again, then I would put myself on a 1000-1200 calorie diet and write down everything I put in my mouth whether it is a piece of candy or gum to what you drink. sometimes I don't realize how much I actually eat until I started writing it down. when I say that my meals consisted of mostly carbs I had to charge what I ate around. I am not try to depress you further because I've been there and I'm trying to help. ps you may want to set up an appt with an nutrionist just to see where you're at. btw what was your start current and goal weight? if you have any further question you can email on this site. p.s I have also found two mentour buddies on this site that helps keep us accountable for our actions. I hope this helps

  15. Well right now, 10 days post surgery, I'm still on liquids. I saw the nutritionist and surgeon today and have been told that I can graduate to mushies. I'm not quite ready, though, and will probably begin sometime next week. I have really been enjoying watching the weight just melt off, lol.


    For right now, my diet is:


    Wake up, protein drink and one multi-vitamin

    Mid morning, meal replacement/protein shake


    Lunch, tomato soup (about a cup)


    Evening, protein drink


    Dinner, soup


    And plenty of water throughout the day...Hope this helps.
