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...?

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
