I lost 26 lbs in the 1st month. I am keeping track of my food. But haven't lost an oz in my 3rd or 4th week. I surely hope it picks up this week, its really depressing and disheartening. Here is my menu !!!

9:30 cheese stick

10:00 another Tea (decaf) 16 oz

Sipping on Water until 11

11:30 tuna/Turkey meat 2 oz either one of them

12:30 Greek Yogurt

1:30 sip sip sip water

2:30 1 scrambled egg

sipping water

4 Tea with lil skim milk

water again

6 dinner with some meat

1 protein shot 42 gms of protein

I mostly eat protein. tomm i will start with crackers hope it helps. I eat about 600 - 800 cals per day. Please tell me where i am wrong ? Why am i not losing at all ???[/quote']

I was sleeved 11/28- had a Rough first week fighting a stomach bug but week 2 was a breeze. I was able to tolerate soft foods if I chewed them ALOT and ate slow. I go all day Christmas shopping and never get tired. So now going into wk 3 I'm down 15 lbs from surgery but feel Guilty for not starting exercising yet? My doc said 4 wks but I feel fine- I know I can be walking( doing that anyway at the mall) but I feel like I should be starting an exercise routine now. What's everyone else doing?

Hi all

I was sleeved nov 18' date=' down 21 pounds I am wondering is it ok to wear a guirdel to support the big belly from hanging down or is to too early yet[/quote']

This lifestyle go with how u feel once ur comfortable with wearing ur girdle which is great!!! Then it's nt to early actually a friend told me to wrap my stop in the plastic wrap. It helps firm ur tummy and sweat of fat.

Nov 28th and feel awesome!!! First week was terrible fighting off stomach virus but after that I'm great. Down 15 lbs and have amazing energy. I'm so suprised at that. Sometimes I feel like I had nothing done except clothes looser and full after a few bites! Loving this sleeve

I was sleeved Dec 5 and a have lost about 18 lbs, which includes the week long pre op diet. I am happy with the weight loss so far and really have not had any major complications. I am still having a hard time incorporating puréed foods into my diet allowing for the necessary liqiuds and Protein but I will keep trying! I have been told by others who went thru the same procedure that protein, liquids and making sure to get all the Vitamins is really the key to making all this work.

I don't think then shots of Protein are necessary because you seem to be getting enough with your meals. I don't know if that would cause the stall though.

I was sleeved on 11/5 & I was in the same boat. I was in a stall when I started solid foods.one thing that helped me was I drank 100 oz of Water everyday. It was sooo hard to do but I dropped 5lbs that week. Feeling water logged was worth it!

How long do the stalls last? I'm two weeks in. Not loosing inches either. My surgery was November 14th

Mine was the same day and I have been at a stall for a while I do seem to be loosing inches at least

Yep, I am indeed a revision. Of course I lost the band 5 years ago from erosion but I do indeed know the issues with the Lap Band. Glad I finally got the sleeve! Congrats on your revision.

Sleeved nov 16th. Had some internal bleeding & need multiple blood transfusions& had to take Iron post-op(-->constant abdominal pain& burning from iron).

Highest wt 245, day of surgery 226lbs. Now at 205lbs. Starting period. I had a 2 wk stall at 210 then was able to drink more& went from 500 cal to 650 to get body out of starvation mode. Walk 30 min a day. I'm a slow loser, but at least I got some wt off.

I am 5.5 weeks post op. Sleeved 11/13. I was 248 pre-op and this morning I was 214.4. I'm happy with everything so far. I had a two week stall that broke this week. I'm happy with everything. My normal day is:

B- Egg or string cheese or Protein Bar

L- tuna or chicken salad

D- whatever I make for the fan (I only eat the Protein portion).

Snacks- hummus or laughing cow cheese.

      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!

        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.
