Almost 1 Year Need Help!



Recommended Posts

So...I had my gastric sleeve done July 26 2011 and I am feeling so down. The day I went in for surgery I weighed 250 I now weigh 189 so I have lost a total of 61lbs not what I expected and the last 2 months I have been 189 and I am not able to lose weight. I am still obese and I feel like I am always going to be overweight. I would like to know if anyone has has these stalls that last a few months? I know that my weight loss is suppose to slow down around this time, but is there anyway to get it going again? I really want this and I am tired of being overweight! I only have 50-60lbs to go and to me that is nothing because I had more than 100lbs before my surgery I feel so close yet so far away. AHHH someone help me!!!

Are you journaling your food? Do you know how many calories you are eating each day versus how many you are burning? Post your food intake and we can help you, but if you have been stalled for a few months you are eating too much or sitting too much, Sorry to be blunt but that's the truth. The good news is that you can continue to lose if you get back on track with the proper food and exercise. Don't give up!

I actually eat the same thing almost every day and the same amount

Breakfast

1 egg

1 bacon

lunch

1/2 cup lettuce

2 chicken slices

2 tbs spoon ranch

3 olives

1 onion slice

dinner

Usually the same as lunch

I walk on the treadmill 3-4x's a weeks 30min-1hr.

I'm not sure of calories or the carbs, Protein. I have been eating this since about 6 months ago and have lost weight between 4 an 6lbs a month. I can't afford alot and I have celiac diesease and its something I haven't got sick of yet. Maybe I will have to find out the calories and all that.

Yes--please weigh or measure each item and get the calories, carbs, and Protein. Are you taking your Vitamins and supplements and drinking enough Water?

Sucks. Get your thyroid checked. I started about the same as you at 244, I'm 2months out and 31 pounds down. How have you been losing since the beggining? Has it always been slow? There may be something going on.

maybe you need to go back to protien shakes for a few weeks to a month and try and break the stall. I see some need a reset.

One thing is that our bodies get used to routines & we sometimes need to trick it. Try eating your meals differently. Even if you eat the same thing, if you eat Breakfast for dinner or something like that, it can trick your body. Also, if you eat 100 calories or so more one day & then drop back down the next day & keep alternating calories, you'll keep your body guessing.

I also agree with tracking your calories so you know that you're getting the right amounts of Protein & limiting your carbs & getting enough Fluid. I use MyFitnessPal & so do many people here. If you make your food journal available for friends to see, you can get advice and ideas from others & from looking at other people's journals too.

I would also suggest adding in some weight training to your exercise routine. Cardio is important, but weights are too for overall health & weight loss & muscle strength & definition.

You could also try going "back to basics" with Protein drinks for a few days if you're not drinking them anymore or just to trick your body some by having more of them for a few days and less actual food.< /p>

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
