That is a lot of calories. Go in for your fills because you will be amazed at how restriction really gets you full fast and keeps you full. Some of us do not lose any weight until we feel restriction. We need so much less food than our minds are trained to think we need. Having the band lean on our Vegas nerve really takes the hunger away.

Are you eating enough Protein. 70-90 grams of protein or whatever your dr recommended. Are u eating too many carbs. Is your exercise challenging enough, I see a nutritionist once a month. That helps me to stay focus on eating healthy, also...I see a psychologist twice a month to make sure my mind stays balance .. She specializes in eating issues. These are the things that are helping me. I had my surgery in dec 2013. Had a stall over the summer. Of course I was on vacation most of the summer so my goal was to maintain, which I did. Now that my travels are fine I am back with eating 1200 calories per day editing at least 85 grams of protein. I have lost two pounds since this past Tuesday. I log in everything I put in my mouth. Don't give up ..u have come too far. Sit down..re-evaluate your personal goes , make a plan to achieve these goals. You can do it. !

Edited-- Whoops my bad. I thought it was 2 months out not 14.

First, 1200 is really too much this early on. At 2 months I had a hard time getting in 800 while eating the right foods. To get to 1200 you have to be eating foods you probably shouldn't be. Then you have to be honest with yourself. Are your portions actually what you are entering? Its in our nature to say we are only eating 3ozs of something when the scale actually said 3.2ozs. So if you are eating 1200 and your portions are ever so slightly over then at the end of the day your 1200 are probably closer to 1600+

Now this may not be the case, but I am sure most people in here would agree that when we portion our foods were more likely to give ourselves a little more than a little less.

She had her surgery over a year ago, in May of 2013. Karen, it looks like you need to cut back on calorie and change up your workouts, that's the most common sense thing, good luck!

As previously mentioned, you have to track your intake...MFP is a great tool, but only if you're honest! :angry:

Physical activity is also key...change up your routine and make it fun! Add new activities, biking, swimming, jogging, etc.

You know what you need to do, you just have to do it. If you burn more calories than you take in, you will begin to lose again.

Good luck! ;)

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
