I am almost 10 weeks out and have only lost 33 lbs since surgery 7/31. It is 3.3 lbs a week which should be considered good but not by my hospital! However, my new NUT (the old one moved) said due to my 42 lb pre-op loss that I was probably plateauing as my body adjusted. 29 she said anyday I should start seeing more rapid loss.

I do need to exercise more but my work hours suck and I can only workout on days off whish is 2 days a week. I want to get a more fixed schedule (why I am looking for a new job) so I can exercise more regularly.

I have had to buy new clothes though. Out of 30/32s and into solid 26/28!

I've hit a plateau for what feels like an eternity. I have been going up and down the same 3 lbs for about two weeks. I had surgery on 07/22/13. I've lost 48 lbs total... 40 lbs post-op and the other 8 from my pre-surgery diet. My weight loss averages to about the same 3.5 lb/week. I am very happy with that because I in the past it was impossible for me to stick to any kind of weight loss. But, I did expect to not plateau for as long as I have been the past couple of weeks. I'm very active (currently doing 125 mile challenge for the month of October), I eat well...lots of Protein, good carbs, plenty of fluids. My downfall has been the weekends. This has always been my problem pre-surgery and I know I have to get it under control. I like to drink wine on the weekends and that is packed with empty calories! Also, I indulge a little on the weekends with dessert or a treat. I don't go crazy but I also don't get enough Protein or drink enough Water on the weekends. I'm back on track today and hoping that the scale starts moving soon. I go to my 3 month post-op visit on Thursday...let's see what my NUT says! Good luck to you....your weight loss is great! I wish I would've stuck more strictly to my pre-op diet...

RoxFC weekends are my downfall as well. I have been trying to excercise more to make up for it and keeping busy.

I was not strict. That was the pre-op with the NUT an liquid so it was 6 months to lose 42 and then 33 the last 2 months. Wow, saying it like that makes it sound even better. I cheated pn my pre-op liquid diet. I haven't even tried alcohol yet and I don't get enough exercise...maybe 90 minutes a week? I figure the slowness of my loss with help with excess skin but who knows. Lol

The biggest exercise I do regularly is walking, it's trite but it is helping :)

26/28 and just bought a size 20 top - yay! But mostly I am a 22/2x now.

Very sedentary to I just went to the gym 6 days straight! My routine is - M - Gravity and Zumba, T - Zumba; W - Gravity and 30 min treadmill; Th - Zumba, Fri - off, Sat and Sun - 35 min circuit, 20 min treadmill, 10 rowing, 10 crossramp

I feel great mental/psychological relief to not be able to eat as much.

I still see some of my overeating/junk food tendencies rise up. I seem to eat a little bit of stuff I shouldn't daily. I think I am at about 1000 calories a day, but I should be at 800.

I successfully transitioned off of the PPI I went on after surgery. I had about a week of struggle with acid and it was causing me to reach for carbs to absorb. But, my stomach finally settled and I am glad I gave it some time instead of going back on PPI.

      hello! This is my first week researching gastric bypass/sleeve. Can y’all please tell me everything you wish you knew from the start? I have read a lot but I feel like there is going to be some surprising disadvantages and I would like to know now. I think right now I am more interested in the sleeve. Can you please tell me why you chose which one you did? With either procedure are you ever allowed to eat rice again like even after a year? Can you drink alcohol ever again? Thank you in advance

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

      I wish there was any obvious, easy soloution to the whole bony butt situation!

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

      3. biginjapan

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
