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!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

        Click on your pic/name. A list will pop up and scroll down to “my surgery”. You can change Surgery specifics there.

        To adjust weight stay on that same page, look left and click on progress. Voila!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
