Stopped Losing?



Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was sleeved July 13, so I am 12 days out. The first 10 days I lost 18 1/2 lbs. It just fell off. Now since Saturday not only have I not lost any, I have gained a pound! How is that possible? I did graduate from clear to full liquids, but really the only change is I have a bowl of real Soup (like chicken Soup from chick-fil-a) and eat that broth. I have read about stalls, is this what I am having? Really what more coud I do right? I can't really exercise yet, although I am walking. Do I just need to be patient? Cathi

Yes be patient. I was sleeved on the 8th and I haven't lost in a week and a half. Continue to follow your doctors guidelines and you will be losing again soon. We both have to be patient while our bodies adjust.

Hi Ashley,

Thank you so much for responding. How are you feeling now? Over-all I feel good. My biggest issue is I am not able to take pills yet without crushing them and I use to live on tylenol. So my body just aches. I do take liquid tylenol at night to help with restless legs. Other then that everything seems to be going well. Cathi

This is me exactly! I was sleeved 7/11 and lost 15lbs and now the scale hasn't moved since Thurs. My Doc said don't be surprised if I hit a stall because our bodies are rebuilding muscle and as we all know..muscle weighs more than fat! I'm on mushies too and have been doing power walks, I guess I just expected the scale to keep plummeting! But, I know I'm losing inches and that I just have to be patient. Hard though when you're eating less than 900 calories a day, drinking lots of Water and exercising!

I feel great and am walking at least 1 mile every day. My doctor told me I can start eating just about whatever is comfortable. I am limiting my carbs to a few Beans every now and then and 10oz of apple juice each morning. I also have to have prevacid and miralax every day

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
