Recommended Posts

I'm so jealous' date=' only lost 25 since surgery and sleeve 4/22. Maybe I should take my Nut advice to stop reading this forum.

Happy for all others success.[/quote']

We will all lose differently. Don't give up. I found eating avocado once a day helped boost my weight loss. Lots of Water and Gatorade, too. Don't forget your protein!

Wow, everyone is amazing, I haven't seem to have been able to lose as fast as most of you, but I'm moving along! I was sleeved April 10th, and I am at 41 pounds lost. I didn't do any pre-op dieting, so this is just all since surgery. I just really over the last two weeks have nailed down how to get all my Protein in and my Water and have started back at the gym.

I include my preop diet so really it's only 41 pounds via surgery

Nah I think may have you beat! Surgery 4/29

Pre-SW 233 (3days before, 9 weeks tomorrow))

LW 212.4

Bounced up to 217.4,

today 215.8

So officially 17.2! :-( including pre surgery.

I know this is how my body works, I know I'm a slow loser, I know my weight bounces like crazy, but this is still all playing with my head!

Hey i had surgery 4.29.13 and SW was 234 so we r pretty similar :)

I'm getting in 7-8 liquids a day and my NUT raised my Protein to 75-80, max 100. I'm averaging low nineties for almost two weeks . I am also exercising despite the pain nearly everyday. I don't know what to else to do except this week I lower my calories from 900 to under 600. Get on scale tomorrow for mid week weight. But I only record weight on Mondays. This Monday will be 11 weeks. 4/22. Hope down at least more than 2lbs. Thanks for the response !

Pre op 266

Sw 266

Cw 234

I tend to lose more weight when I up my calories rather than reduce them. I would say I average 650 to 900 a day. Although there are days when I'm not very hungry I do have these days where I feel the need to eat. I end up in the 900 range of calories but then I suddenly drop a few pounds. I guess it's my body's way of compensating.

Sleeved 4-15 I just saw my previous post from a while ago. Iam now down 55 pounds! I still cannot stand protien shakes. I was actually getting physically sick.. I would vomit them(no matter what brand I tried) and then I would get violent shakes and get dizzy. I'm fine unless I try to drink one. This sucks bc I have been having a hard time the last couple weeks getting all my Protein in from foods. I need 60grams a day. Other wise I have been doing good and feeling good. I need to get into a regular exercise routine.

      Hi there!  Just wanted to gain some perspective.  Out of anyone here who had the gastric bypass, can you give me info on your journey?  How much weight did you lose in the first month, 3 months, 6 months after surgery?  I'm working on getting my clearances so that I can have surgery in late summer.  My friend, who just had GB, told me "your new life doesn't start the day of your surgery, but right now, so take care of yourself!"  So, I'm trying.  But hearing what others have experienced will give me some perspective and I'm big on that kind of thing.

        I lost 25 pounds in 3 months before surgery and your friend is right. Putting off losing weight till surgery date just reminded me of all the excuses I made before. I'll wait till Monday to start or after the holidays.

        I'm 8 weeks out from Gastric Bypass and lost another 25. So I'm averaging about 3 pounds a week post-surgery. That's the most I've ever lost consistently over time without regain so I'm happy. Good luck on your journey!

      Lost 3 pounds this week. I'll take it!!!

      Waiting for surgery date…still undecided sleeve vs. RNY

      1. Jodi74

        I had the sleeve 9/13/21 and just had a the sleeve to bypass revision on 5/3/23. My HW:321 (I'm 5' 8" tall)and I went down to 254 while doing my 7 nutrition appts required by my insurance company. So just changing the way I ate, I was able to get those pounds off w/o surgery. I have many Co morbidities mixed hyperlipidemia, diabetes, htn, MI due to covid. I had read and done quite a bit of research so I could choose the best surgery for myself and learned previous to my sleeve that someone as heavy as I was and all the Co morbidities I have, it was better in my situation to have the bypass but, my DR. Kept saying I would have the same results with the sleeve. Every time I would see him and say to him that I felt it would be best to just get the bypass, he just shot me down and said the sleeve would produce the same results! Why he kept asking me which surgery I wanted at each visit just to tell me the sleeve was all I needed still a mystery to me????? Let's just say, my Dr. Was wrong you see, the surgeries are both about the same price, but the sleeve is easier for the surgeon to perform so I think my DR. Just wanted the easier since he would get the same pay no matter what. After sleeve surgery I did go from 254 to 226 BUT that's just because you are healing from surgery and can't eat anyway as soon as I recovered! I was starving non-stop. I went right back up and stayed at 248. Still had to take cholesterol meds, blood pressure meds, diabetes meds etc. I'm now almost 4 weeks post op the bypass and feel great. I'm not starving all the time, went from 248 to 220 and doing great! Not only what you just read about my story, you also hear about a lot of people needing revision after the sleeve due to acid reflex like severe acid reflex all the time. So the bypass surgery is the only way to stop This reflux if you acquire this condition after sleeve surgery. The regain possibility is higher with sleeve than bypass so just think about all these factors before you make your decision. I wish I would have just had the bypass and saved myself from having to have 2 surgeries in under 2 years. The bypass surgery was also less painful for me lol! I don't know if the new surgeon was better or what but, I was home the next day. After the sleeve I had to stay an extra night due to the nausea and vomiting all night and for pain control.

      2. BabySpoons

        After doing the research between the sleeve and bypass, I chose the Gastric bypass for quite a few different reasons. Thankfully my surgeon told me I was a perfect candidate for it after he examined my health history. Oddly enough, his nurse tried talking me into getting the sleeve too. Like your doc said, she thought it was easier and just as good. But I'm not looking for easy. I'm looking for more effective. Just the reflux alone was enough for me to say no thanks.

        Sorry you had to get 2 surgeries and wishing you all the best!

      Who knew Filet Mignon would make me so sick. Leftovers from Mother's Day.  On the upside..next day I started walking outside a little over a mile without stopping or back pain. That's a bit deal for me considering how inactive I've been for years. Woot woot!

      Five-week follow-up for gastric bypass and now on lifetime food plan. No restrictions.  In all that time I was fortunate to get sick only one time, week 1, on Easter. Chicken broth...go figure.
