Help! I can't stop loosing!

Recommended Posts

So I had surgery March 18th and I have lost 100lbs in 6 months. I was a low BMI and only had about 100 to loose. So I have met my goal and I do t want to loose any more. I still struggle with upping my calories. Still intaking about 6-800 a day. I'm never hungry and have a hard time forcing myself to eat. I still do Protein Shakes and usually with drink most of my calories trying to get the Protein. I don't know how to up my calorie intake without making poor choices. Is anyone else going through this,or have home through this. I'm afraid that the loss will never stop and I will just wither away and die. Oh and I cannot work out because I burn more than I eat.

Yes! I add Peanut Butter to cream of wheat, and rice cakes. I do Greek yogurt everyday and I have tried using 2% milk instead of day free. I do use regular cheese when I eat cheese. And have stopped purchasing fat free anything.

As much as I hate to reference it, because I hate it. What's your current BMI? There is nothing wrong with getting slightly under your target weight. There will most likely be a bit of a weight increase as you get further out and your body readjusts to the new weight range.

Well there goes that!

Ummm... My only other suggestion is adding a Meal Replacement shake a day in addition to your regular diet.. Not a Protein shake but a true Meal Replacement like slim fast, ensure, etc...

Oh and smoothies! There's a massive amount of calories in those healthy numbers!

Oh and thanks :)

I think you literally need to eat something every 2 (no longer than 3) hours. Whether you are hungry or not. That's what I do. My doc said that a lot of people lose their hair because of the extreme calorie deficit, and I did NOT want to lose my hair. So, I have pretty consistently (for about 6 weeks now) hit 1200-1300 calories per day.

I eat about every two hours--hungry or not. After my morning run I drink a high 200 calorie RTD Protein drink (@5a.m.); at 7 a.m. I have a 70 calorie boiled egg; 9 a.m. (my off period) I have my oatmeal that I add Protein powder to--about 130 calories; my lunch is at 11:39 a.m. and I usually do tuna and crackers-250 calories; between 2&3 p.m. I eat an ounce of cashews (160 cals) and a string cheese (80 cals); dinner is between 5&6 p.m. and it is usually a beef Soup, salad n chicken, or fish n veggies ranging from 200-300 calories. I drink a casein Protein Drink before bed.

It's hard work, it takes a lot of preparation, it's not always comfortable, but I have gotten used to it and I have yet to lose my hair. I am very happy with the rate of my weight loss. Not too fast, not too slow. I know you are further out than me, and being a low BMI'r like yourself, I hope I am not in your same predicament, but I truly hope this helps you up your calories. Good luck to you.

I know it illegal but I also know pot stimulates appetite. Friend of mine good portion of his large intestines remove due disease. After loading significant weight, this was the only thing that turned that around . He would have died without it.

Ahhh this is what I'm afraid of! I'm a low BMI'r and only have about 100 pounds to loose as well.... but that's awesome that you've met your goal in only 6months! How is your skin? (sorry, I'm very curious... my surgery date is next friday 10/11)

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
