Weight Gained Since Having Gastric Sleeve Surgery



Recommended Posts

MoJo119 I liked your post. I am 5 months out and have lost 55 lbs but seem to be plateaued around 200 lbs. My goal was to get to 150 lbs but I'm starting to wonder if that is a realistic goal given my stall. I'm following the food stuff really well, ski 2 days/week and do weights and core 2 days/week. The problem for me is with the stall I am starting to feel frustrated and feel like ccheating on my food (although I'm not). MoJo119 I am about the same height as you and before I had WLS I had a tough time getting below 185 even with starving myself and working out consistently. I saw your post and can imagine being in your shoes in 6 months.

Don't sweat the not getting beyond 185 before and failing, that is in the past...

I am 5 months out and 48 lbs down and have stalled like hell. I work out hard 5 days a week. Get the tape measure and take measurements all over. I guarantee that you are loosing mad inches all over the place.

I feel the same way at times but when I measure I know what is happening.

Stay the course and you will be in the 170's it just is gonna take you and I longer because of our lower bmi starting point.

I see some people are 5 months out and down 100 plus pounds, I then say what the hell am I doing wrong, it is nothing we are doing wrong, some people are well over 300 so they are loosing at a rapid weight.

Sounds like you are doing everything right, dont let it push you off center....

Or me!

How far out are you? I'm almost a week out & I weigh more than pre-op but they say it's because of swelling and inflammation.

Going for my swallow test in the morning see what's going on with my sleeve

Good luck!!!!!

I was revised from gastroplasty to sleeve December 2013. Lost 150. Sw 350 cw 200. Losing very slowly now, but still losing. I am using every tool in the toolbox. Counseling, trainer, gym, walking, Water aerobics, monthly support groups, online support, and my personal support team of friends and family. I also call my surgeon's office when I have concerns. I have had many stalls. Some last a few days, weeks or a couple of months. Do not compare yourself to others. We all have different experiences. We did not gain over night, so do not expect to lose so quickly. Take your measurements. That is a better guide than the scale. Stalls are a good thing. Your body has to catch up with itself. Get your bloodwork checked. How is your thyroid? Are you taking your Vitamins? Are you getting plenty of Protein? Hang in there. Be patient. This is not a race.

@proud grammy...i am not so confident when i gain weight that i will get rid of it.im back over 200...was 207. Today: 205. Have no idea what helps at this point. Feels like I'm back to square one. Surgery does not consider these issues years out. i was sleeved 2011. My lowest was 185. Held onto 193 for a long stretch. Now 205. I feel like i need another surgery

I hear almost everyone relate to being "near goal" or "at goal" or "maintaining goal." I dont have a goal. Should i be concerned? My surgery is coming april 7.

Goal is what u and your doc think is right weight for your stats and then if/when u reach it, how u feel at that point. Don't worry abt it.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
