Please help! I am completely freaked out!



Recommended Posts

I had my sleeve done on 10/22/12 and have steadily lost weight daily. I know, I know.....I'm not supposed to weigh daily but I have. Anyway, this last week I went from 205.5 to 206.5 and not 207.5 in a matter of 2 days. I know that I am not eating into any caloric danger zones, but I am scared. Is this where my weight loss is going to end?? I know a few people who have had this surgery and they say that they've stayed the same weight but never gained weight. One of them was talking about eating a Carl's Jr burger on FB yesterday. (which I would NEVER do, if I was going to eat like that then I wouldn't have put myself through the surgery). Any help or advice would be so very helpful. I want to continue losing and do whatever it takes. I have a protien shake in the am and small lunch and dinner as that's all I can intake. Please help!!!

Is there a chance that perhaps your period is coming up? I know I used to gain at least 5 pounds of Water weight from that darn thing. This week I gained about .6 pounds thanks to mine. (I had a procedure done so I only get it for less than a day now.) I waited a couple of days and then showed a loss.

If you started up any new exercise, that could also cause you to retain Water. (As well as eating foods high in sodium.)

Like you, I weigh myself every day which is a mistake. I can't stay off that stupid thing. If you weigh daily you must be prepared for ups and downs. I find that I have a range of about 3 lbs and as much as 5 lbs when I have my period. When I am a little up, I remind myself of my starting weight and commit anew to following the guidelines. When I am down, I Celebrate and commit anew to following the guidelines. That's because they work. Stalls will happen- work your sleeve and be proud cause it takes guts to change your life.

I start to gain a little if I haven't had a poop in a few days.

It's a stall, that's all. Consider yourself lucky this is your first one. You will have to get used to the fact they will happen. Stay on track, and try not weighing every day. I know that's hard, but believe me, it helps your sanity.

Best thing you can do is stop weighing every day, it will drive you insane. I weigh every Sunday morning before Breakfast. Your weight will fluctuate daily, so if you only do it once a week you won't be subjected to seeing that. Yes, you will have stalls and maybe even a few weight gains. Our bodies need time to stabilize along the journey. As long as you know you are eating correctly and doing all the things you should be, just keep doing them and your weight will eventually start downwards again. Be patient and kind to yourself. This isn't a race but a journey that changes our lives.

I almost never weigh myself :) it drives me crazy as well. How I look and how my clothes fit matter more to me than numbers.

Also: is your period coming up? I too gain before it.

I bounce. Meaning that I go up and down all the time. Can't stress out about it. Now. If it's more like 10 lbs, then you should take a serious look at things but a few pounds is nothing to worry about at this point.

U hear ya! Going through the same thing as you. Sleeved a week or 2 after you. I havent stalled yet (except for 10 days at the start) - down 65lbs and last week gained 3lbs and am stuck on that. Mid-cycle so period isn't coming up. So hard not being disheartened and thinking this is end of road huh! I have slacked on exercise and could do better with Water as well.

I weigh myself daily but I only count I as a loss or a gain on Thursdays. Daily fluctuations are normal.

      Psyllium husk is the sh*t! No really, it's my new go to for fiber in order to get regular. The nice thing is that it doesnt taste and is low in calories, so it's great for my shakes. It isn't expensive either and available in most grocery stores. Looking back on the forums, it seems to be FluffyChix favorite as well.

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com
