Frustrated as hell!



Recommended Posts

Okay I understand that I'm not as heavy as a lot of sleevers but I want to lose weight too. I had the surgery 11/9 and I've only lost 25 lbs. Trust me I'm grateful; however, I've been at this weight for over a week. I've read post where no exercise take place and these people have lost 30lbs +. I'm drinking Water, eating nothing but Protein and walking an average of 18 miles per week. I'm crying because I feel like something is wrong. I'm even fighting the hungry that I sometimes feel. I can't talk to my family because they don't understand because they can see my weight loss. Can anybody relate to what I'm saying?????

What is your starting weight? 25 pounds is a good loss. Also, a week stall is quite common. If it were me I would try to get something besides Protein in, like some vegetables or some light Fiber like benefiber. Elimination is a good thing. Just protein can bind you up and stall you even with all the Water you drink.

Most whey powder has little fat in it especially mixed with skim milk or Water. The Protein in it makes it worth the calories consumed. Protein helps you lose weight and stay healthy.

Hang in there! It sounds like you have hit the typical plateau that even I hit at 4 weeks. I think you are doing great and doing everything right. Trust me- it is going to happen. I even thought at week 4 and 5 that I made a mistake because I just seemed to stop losing weight after dropping regularly. You will see the scale move soon. Promise!

I hit mine at 3 weeks (last week). Only lost 1/2 lb. Following the diet to the letter and getting the exercise, Water and Protein. I'm seeing some loss this week but probably a lb or maybe 2. It will happen. The body is adjusting. My suggestion is to track everything you eat. It really help give you a good idea of what is to many carbs, not enough protein. I go on mushies on Tuesday and I think that there will be some stalling again. But it will all be good in end. Eventually things will settle and you'll be losing again. Hang in there

Every body is different, don't compare yourself to others. Just keep on track and the scale will move. Have you measured yourself? You may have lost inches.

Stay focused.

I agree with Smokey!! We're all different, that's why we're called individuals. So don't compare, just continue doing the great things you have been doing, you'll get there. Might I suggest a Yoga class to calm your mind? It sure helps me to relax and put my mind at ease when the daily life gets overwhelming...relax, breathe, proceed..you'll do fine!!

I've lost 20 pounds this month. Unfortunately it is the same 2-3 pounds that I lost before and gained back over and over. But, and a very big but, I am still getting thinner. I am getting down to the place where my unattractive areas have become one area, my lower belly. It seems the fat has retreated there for a last stand with it's ally, loose skin. The battle continues. :mellow::)

20 pounds is really amazing! I am averaging 10 pounds a month which is great too but I can totally relate to the belly!!! Finally there aren't two belly's just one lower with loose skin- erggg. But I always enjoy your posts. You have broken some serious ground!!! You are pretty much at your goal! Congrats.

Nursedel, don't let the scale get you down. Have you measured yourself? Sometimes you lose inches and not pounds. You can't let the movement on the scale stop you from doing what you need to do and should be doing.

Also, you might need to take some Fiber to get your bowels moving as well as drink at least 64 ounces of Water.

As long as you are doing what you need to be doing, the weight will come off. Things will change. I stalled from May until September. In September, I started losing again and am down another 12 pounds.

I would say do a search on the 3 week stall, but you will be reading all night. Just read the link in my sig. You have hit the inevitable stall that most people hit in their first month. Don't fret and don't change anything. Certainly do not cut out your Protein Shakes. They do not make you fat. Keep drinking and walking and take 2 weeks off from weighing yourself. Start measuring yourself instead. Soon the weight will be falling off.

Thanks for the advice. I started at 198lbs and I'm sorry it's not 25 but 23lbs. I will try some vegetables tomorrow and add some fiber because I'm really irregular. You would think I would know that since I'm a nurse. I guess nursing only works when it's someone else I'm assessing....thanks

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
