7 months Post Op and about to enter panic mode!



Recommended Posts

VSG Family I need help. I'm 7 months post op and to date I've lost 83 pounds from my highest weight of 426. I'm about 17 pounds from hitting my 100 pound weight loss and very happy but I fill like I'm going backwards. I'm feeling like I did prior to surgery that the weight will never come off. I need suggestions on how to get back on track. Has anyone post op felt this way and if so what did you do to break the back tracking?

Sincerely,

Felling like I'm failing

You're NOT going backwards! Your weight loss has been incredible! To the extent you have been off the wagon, now you gotta get back on the horse!! You know what to do.... Less carbs, more Protein, make sure you are getting your Water in. Cut out any sugar you're eating. It's just like in the beginning (where I am!!!) - once sugar goes in, cravings start. Once you get the sugar out of the system, the cravings subside. YOU CAN DO THIS! (And, you're doing great! Don't be too hard on yourself!)

First off, congrats on the weight loss! Start celebrating your successes and cut yourself some slack! Ditto on the getting back to basics. Maybe also write down a list of things you are now able to do that you weren't 83 pounds ago....like smaller cloths sizes, having an easier time getting around, etc.

You've got this, girl. Just do what you know is best for you. Keep on pushing.

I have a friend that had the bypass. She lost 100 pounds in a year, then gained 30 back. She went back to journaling, working out, low carb, no sugary stuff. She had to battle but she ended up losing the 30 plus another 20. This was 2 years out for her. You might lose slower now, but you'll get rid of those 17 pounds!

Best advice ,right on the money sugar is just as bad as drugs for some of us.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
