2 weeks and haven't lost anything in a week? -10 to 11lbs from DS.



Recommended Posts

I was doing great for a few days when I started eating soft to regular foods per Dr.....and then problems. I haven't tolerated anything I ate yesterday. Going back to Protein Shakes for a few days. I know it's early but discouraging never the less.

Friend, it happens to every one of us. We all get stalls and "stairsteps". JUST KEEP ON with your program! Do not give up!!

Sorry for being a whiner......I think everyone is in fear that they will be the exception and not lose weight. I've also wondered if my pouch was made small enough....or if the dr didn't really do the surgery and only made incisions. It's crazy the thoughts and fears that come out. Thanks for listening.

You're allowed to whine. It's very normal. :) You've made a very big change in your life.

Do yourself a favor. Stop weighing. I didn't weigh till the doctor weighed me the first time. Then monthly. That way I didn't see the highs or lows as I knew I'd go nuts.

I felt so incredible from day 1 that I swore the doctor didn't do the surgery. No pain, tons of energy, a poster child for the surgery. I lost 16 lbs. before surgery and lost another 9 the 1rst week. Since then,nothing! I'm trying not to get discouraged but it is so hard. Everyone says to be patient but I expected a little better than this. It's been 4 weeks and now I'm getting weepy and miserable. You are definitely not alone!

My surgeon said that sometimes that happens where people don't lose the first 4 weeks after surgery he's seen it happen . And then on the next apt they lose a grip load of weight. I am almost 7 months post op (surgery was August 6 2013) and I've lost approximately 100lbs. I am down 140lbs from my highest weight and I've had TONS of stalls :-/ I actually just got over a stall of 6weeks and dropped 12 lbs in less than a week. This happens sometimes maybe adjust your Protein intake get a lil more in and try to increase your Water this sometimes helps me along with more exercise if your body will allow you. Good luck :-)

I am really grateful to have read this experience. I'm new to the board and just posted about how I'm 7 weeks post-op and 18 lbs down but feel "behind." (I also recently experienced a 7 lb spike in my weight but it has since come down post-time of the month). It helps to know that others have gone through this and that I will be okay. Like the original poster, I too am fearful that I will be the exception to the rule and will not be successful at this!

I also gain about 7lbs during tht time of the month and it takes about a week post that time to go away. I was talkingn to my surgeon and he said he sees paitients that don't lose a pound till their 3-4months post op I'm like that's crazy but it happens. Our bodies are in shock so that's why this happens. I also thought I wouldn't lose and I'd be the exception to the rule but I am dwn from 350lbs to 190lbs. Day of surgery I weighed 302 so that's just over 110lbs dwn since surgery almost 9months ago!

I'm confused. What surgery did you have. I thought my the thread title you had the DS. But you said you have pouch so that makes me think you had RNY. Was just wondering which it was.

Sorry you are right. Got the wrong forum. Had the RNY.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
