I got on the scale this morning and i gained 4 lbs! Wth?? The same thing happened to me last month and I dnt know why. I was going along so good and then bang. The only thing I can think of is that I ran out of Protein Drinks and I'm not getting my Protein in now. That happened last month too. I don't exercise like I should, but I counteract that with cleaning. I clean hard and vigorously everyday, with and occasional walk on the treadmill here and there. And I dnt have a period due to an oblation I had and few years back, but I can tell when it's my time because my boobs hurt really bad. And when I gained last month it was around that time. But this time it isn't. Does everyone fluctuate 5 lbs? Has anyone else had this? Or am I doing something wrong? I can still only eat a few bites at a time so I dnt think I'm overheating :(

Our weight does fluxuate different times per day as well as daily. If you are concerned with over doing it call your nutritionist. Are you getting in your Water? I wish you the best. I too have gained and lost here and there.

Thank you! I dnt really drink straight Water but I drink it with mio, and I drink a lot of tea with Splenda in it. I have an appointment coming up soon with my nut so I'll talk to her. It's just. Wry frustrating but I'm kinda glad I'm not the only one. Thank you again!

Not sure what you are down overall but in short term (a week os short term), lots of things cause fluctuations but so long as the trend is in tact. This has happened to me a few times and it does suck.

I was sleeved on July 22.

HW: 272

CW: 218

GW: 170

I've lost a total of 54 lbs. I'm more than half way to my goal. I know that i can do better. I let my old/bad habits get the best of me sometimes. Also, weekends are rough for me. I go off schedule, don't eat enough Protein, or drink enough fluids. I also indulge on things that are bad for me on the weekends (wine, sweets). Ughh...

I was sleeved 7/22/13... Officially down 51lbs from surgery date .. I too am having trouble motivating to get to the gym ( hate it)! But I need to tone so I don't have floppy skin :( so far I'm ok . I pretty much eat what I want - cant eat much and I try to get in Protein or meat first. Thank God I enjoy Soups because often they are my go to lunch - I can usually get Soup down easier and feel satisfied. Everyone in my family says I still try to eat too fast which in turn makes me miserable after just a few bites.. I try to slow down but my mind is telling me this is delicious - your hungry -eat ?! Loving the sleeve - feel so much better and able to move around, get dressed, not feel so tired ;)))

      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!
