THANKS...

And Yes... I'm probably not getting enough :( It's hard because I just don't crave fluids that much... I think that I drink 1-2 16 oz bottles per day if I'm lucky :/

This no Water with meals... Or 30 mins before / 30 mins after really makes life a little complicated! :-P

I totally agree. The waiting to drink is hard. I get thirsty when I eat.

Sleeved Nov 14 I have lost 20lbs but I am also in the 3 week stall. Trying hard to get my Water in I drink about 35oz.

Menu

L - egg

D - 1 oz meat

I know I need to eat more and drink more. But I tend to get hungry around 9pm. I'm nauseous a lot of the time. I may vomit at times. Cold other times. My left incision finally stopped hurting on Sunday. I take Colace stool softner. I cannot tolerate Protein shakes I find them toooo sweet.

Sleeved Nov. 7--lost 17 pounds before surgery, lost another 12 after surgery. I have been the same weight for over two weeks, going on three weeks. Don't have any problems tolerating food or beverages so I am lucky there. Really wanted to get another 10 off before Christmas, but can't get the scales to move--ugh!!

I had my sleeve on Nov 13th and in two weeks I lost 35 pounds, week 3 nothing. I gave my girlfriend my scale to hide because I was on the scale 50 times a day and getting discouraged. Hope we all have a great weight loss in the upcoming week.

Ok everyone... I was sleeved on Nov 12th, and weighed 240.

My first week I lost 10 pds and my second another 10... Which was Awesome!!!

But since then "0" WTFudge is going on! :-(

This is my sample menu:

B: 1 EGG OR 5OZ Protein shake

L: 4 SHRIMP OR 2OZ tuna

D: 2OZ SALMON OR 1/4 CRAB meat

SNACK: cheese STICK OR 5OZ Protein Shake

I'm tracking my calories and I am under 300 - 350 max.

What is wrong???

Anyone else struggling???

Is this normal???

this does not seem like enough food or calories overall. How about more Protein Snacks, or supplement with a Protein Shake? Your body will hold onto weight if it feels it is starving..so feed it more food. Make sure you are drinking enough fluids as well.

Is there a nutritionist you could see? I found I was able to tol liquids better after I slowed down in amount of time to drink. What I thought were sips were actually to much. I went to half sips. I had to change protien powder to unflavored. Helped some. I went through kaiser and they have a whole center of Dr's and nutritionists and PA's who follow you. If you have kaiser then chek there. Good luck. Hang in there. One day at a time motto works for me.

If you cant keep liquids down I would go in an INSIST to my doc they check your sleeve . You may have some swelling that wont go own .. I was in the hopsital post op for 5 days due to not being able to keep liquids down if youc cant keep down liquids something is wrong.

Is it any liquid, certain liquids ?

Seems like stalls are common in week 3 or 4, I have not lost any weight for several days but im ok with it, im not even on full mushies yet . So im ok with it .

Your body is adjusting stilll just keep doing what your doing . it will come off.

Your not eating ENOUGH .. When i had my lap band surgery the ONLY time i stalled was when i did not eat enough . I know it sounds like 600-800 cals is not enough but it is , but under that your going to put your body in starvation mode.

      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.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
