Frustrated in Kansas!



Recommended Posts

I was sleeved on 12/12/14 and had post OP appt on 12/22. I weighed myself today and I'm only 8 lbs done since my post op appt and 24 lbs down since my pre OP appt on 11/17. I am eating all what I should and getting in my fluids. My doctor has told me I'll lose slowly cause I don't have a ton to lose (SW 232 CW 208). I plan to start at a gym on Friday which should help, but I still can't do strenuous exercise! Thanks in advance for your comments/words of wisdom!

Stay away from the scale. It will make you crazy. Also you don't need to do strenuous exercise, but you need to exercise consistently. A 30 minute walk each day is just as beneficial.

I'm also from Kansas....where were you sleeved? I agree, the scale will make you nuts, but I understand the want to check and be validated. I've been walking 30 min a day since I'm still not allowed strenuous exercise and it has been helping.

I have only weighed myself once at home since my surgery, which was 12-12, so one check in in a month is not bad, in my opinion & necessary!

I was sleeved through Dr Hoehn @ KC Bariatric.

understandable. I was done in Topeka at Tallgrass. Keep doing the right thing and trusting that this process will work...

It really depends on the person. If you can stand daily or weekly weighing without freaking out, then go for it. If you can't then stay off the scale and look at other NSV. Taking your measurements (neck, boobs, waist & hips) is a good alternative. I didn't get my first weight check until my 2 week checkup and was pleasantly surprised. However I know from previous weight loss attempts that the scale makes me crazy. Instead of focusing on eating properly and getting exercise I am worried about what the scale says. I therefore limit it to once a month, preferably at the doctor's office.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
