Anyone else sleeved July 3?? I feel like m losing really slowly <img src='http://www.bariatricpal.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />

HW 299

Surgery day weight 289

CW 250-252

I was sleeved July 9 my HW was 245 Surgery day weight was 233 and my CW is 198.... I thought I was losing really slow too until I saw my NUT today and told him my concern and he said that it may seem that way but what we have to look at too is before surgery it's possible your calorie intake was like 1500 and now you take in 800-1000. It's a difference but not a huge jump compared to someone who was taking in let's say 2000 calories and now only takes in 800-1000. He says my weight loss is a a good pace and its will start to take off soon just be patient.

I'm getting nervous because I'm almost 4 weeks out and feeling crappy as well. Back to almost all liqids because everything else upsets my stomach. Also feel nauseous and stomach pain and also super tired and easily fatigued...

Actually feeling a lot better and even lost 1 lb! I guess the stall is over for now! Back to the gym and I am also finding that now that I am back to work I eat slower and more mindfully and I am able to eat more of a variety of things without feeling ill. Still can't drink Water, but Gatorade is my new best friend!

I hope all of you that were having problems are feeling better! I am so glad I found this forum because I really can't talk to anyone at work or friends because they have no idea what we go through! My daughter had the surgery April 23, 2013 but she is 25 yo and recovered almost like nothing happened! She has lost 60 lbs so far and looks fabulous. I am using her as my goal for my 4 month mark. I know people say "you should go at your own pace and not go by how other people do or look", but it helps me stay on track. No way am I going to let her beat me!

I just found out something today! I've been frustrated with this "stall" and called the doctors office. While my mom said, since seeing pics of me today, that I look like I'm turning into a different version of me, and to relax it will all catch up. to which I replied...RELAX...ME!!!! HA!!! Well, the nutritionist said I am not eating enough calories! HMMMM, no one has EVER told me I'm NOT eating ENOUGH!!! I backed up, sat down and said, you have the list in front of you of what I am trying to eat and I can never eat the whole portion...she stated I needed some good calories, like a spoon of nut butter, or banana in my protein...and up the calories a bit to boost the metabolism. Who knew that I would NOT be eating enough!!! I'm just stunned! My mom said she can see that I am losing inches, and the RELAX comment is really sticking in my head! Plus the nutritionist said ONLY weigh myself ONCE a WEEK, NOT every day or it will consume your mind! I said too late for that piece of genious!!! Too late lady!!! lol...well I feel better now! Have a blessed night!

I started out at 176 on the day of surgery August 13, 2013. I have no pain or no vomiting. I'm having trouble eating as nothing taste good, but have been forcing my self to eat. I have no energy. I realized yesterday the chewable Vitamins have been making meet feel terrible. I am so discouraged to be feeling this way.

Hey there July! I'm new to this site and think it is GREAT!! It's good to relate and have helpful hearts available.

I am wondering if there is anyone out there that is structured like me... I am a 6' tall lady and at the start of this journey I weighed 367. I was sleeved on July 30. I have lost, as of 8/26, 50 pounds. I don't know if that is fast or slow? I know everyone is different, but haven't seen anyone "my size" to ask...

I am not a lady but you are doing great. I had my surgery on July 11th and have only lost 28 pounds so far but I hit a stall and I am finally starting to lose again. I started out pre surgery in Feb. on a diet and lost from 389 to 340 lbs. the day of surgery and as of this morning 312 lbs., you are not losing to fast just getting rid of a lot of Water weight is what the Drs told me. The first 5 lbs a person loses is liver fat then Water, then fat. Keep up the good work.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
