Why Won't My Body Cooperate?

Recommended Posts

I'm doing everything right. Thought the carbs (like watermelon, broccoli and lettuce) were causing slow weight loss. Eliminated them (on the advice of NUT), lost 5 lbs in a week, then...STALL.

All my life, I have had a hard time losing weight. Even at 17, when my Dr. put me on a 1,000 calorie diabetic diet (I don't and never had diabetes) the weight would not come off till I eliminated most food groups, and ate less than 500 calories per day. I also walked at least 2 hours per day.

Now I have a Protein shake in the morning-17 gms Protein, 100 cals

lots of Water and Crystal Light

Lunch-1/4-1/3 cup of some kind of lean protein food

more Water and Crystal Light

dinner 1/4-1/3 cup of lean protein food.

More water and Crystal Light

How am I not dropping massive poundage?? Or at least a steady weight loss. I physically can't eat more or more often.

I rarely sit still, for long, either. Walking, household chores, hiking, Zumba, etc...

BTW, I feel awesome!! Amazing energy. This was also the case, during my phases, in the past, of eating less than 500 cals/day.

What happened to if you burn more calories than you take in, then you lose weight?

Any advice, things that my doc should check, etc...?

      this one is a bit of a slog to get thru but it is important to see the differences they are trying to define.

      Dinner tonight was: a dessert plate (cuz it's small) topped w/ dark leafy greens, refried beans & stewed shredded chicken. Pretty good.

      This is great, but having difficulty changing where it says under my moniker & next to my profile picture, "Pre Op" to ---> "Post Op".  I'm new, but had my Gastric Bypass procedure 06 February 2018. Halp! lol  Also, how do I post Before & current "After/ Work In Progress" photos?  Do I post it/ them in this status box? Any assistance appreciated. Thanks a bunch in advance. Toodles!

      Day 2 of pureed food diet, 15 day post Sx. I'm eating lunch (leftover taco ground beef mixed with 2% cottage cheese) and wondering "Am I full? Am I full? How will I know I am full?" I've prepared about a 1/2 cup total and eaten about a half of that. Then I get the familiar pressure behind my sternum, like a burp is just sitting there wanting to come up. I hiccup a couple times and gas bubbles up from my belly. There's no feeling of fullness in my stomach, its all in my chest. I guess this is full for me? I am just learning what full feels like. For the new me, fullness isn't leaning back from the table with my hands on my belly wanting to unbutton my jeans. Fullness is a feeling low in my chest that the food has stopped going down. Air is trying to escape to make room. It's the feeling of really needing to burp. Still learning.

        I get a heavy feeling in my chest and can't burp, then the hiccups come and they are loud and obnoxious
