I kind need help on this...

**My surgery was May 15, 2012 (240 lbs)**

2 weeks later was my 1st Dr. Check-up... Well at that time I was (211 lbs)... Since then everything was better n better right?!? Well, when I made my month I join back to the gym... Here is where everything starts... June 15, 2012 (207 lbs)...

I start doing (Zumba on M-W) and I have my personal trainer M-F 1 hour, plus I walk 1hour in the afternoon, I eat healthy n in small portions, also I throw up almost everything I eat everyday... Don't ask me why cuz idk... I don't eat to get full, n most of my snack is a grapefruit n the only Protein I can tolerated is tuna... Water 24/7... My next Dr. Check-up is on the 25th... And the sad part is I'm still (207 lbs)...

What I'm doing wrong?!? Is anyone having or had at one point this situations also?!?

At this point I want to give up.. And just think that this surety waesnt for me... I just read n see how 98% of everybody that had the surgery are doing so well at there 2 month n I'm just stuck.

Any suggestion?!?

Gracias, :)

If you are throwing up everything you eat, call your nutritionist / surgeon's office. With zero nutrition your body is in starvation mode and will hold onto everything. When exercising, you sometimes need to add calories. Lots of possibilities to consider, which your bariatric center should help with.

Why would you give up when you barely started? Almost everyone has stalls, and sooo many posts are about that?

Get the throwing up resolved, and back off the exercize a bit until you do, keep hyradted - and get in your head and find out why you are willing to give up so easily.

Good luck.

Great advice Pook - don't forget that the sleeve is a permanent, and new tool. It sounds as if your body is in starvation mode and not letting go - I know that if I dont get the Protein and calories in, my losses slow down - if my calories are at the upper range suggested (800) I lose about a lb a day.

I would try getting Protein shakes in if you can choke them down - something like Premier at 30g of Protein a pop. Your body is probably feasting on its own muscle with your exercise - and in my experience that is when losses stop - and you also dont feel so great. Sending you positive thoughts to keep up the good fight!

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
