I hope it worked!



Recommended Posts

I know it sounds crazy because I know what was done. But does anyone else feel like they just won't believe it will work? I am really not having any problem with food or drinking. I refuse to get on a scale more than once a week because I do not want to be frustrated. My procedure was Feb. 9 -- two weeks ago. Please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks like this. : (

you arent the only one. My sleeve was Feb10th. Im stuck at 12 pounds lost. I dont see how because I am only eating @600 calories a day and getting all my Protein and Water in. I also have hypothyroidism so I always think it will be harder for me.

My sleeve was January 19 and I've only lost 12 pounds though I lost 23 on the pre op. I gave up weighing every day for 2 weeks and I gained. I'm back to weighing every day. I think it makes me a little more accountable even if the fluctuations are tough to see. I was banded in 2008 and was not successful so yes I do have a lot of anxiety that this won't work for me. But I'm gonna keep at it.

If you are working at staying on program, your sleeve will work for you, but your body is not a machine. It needs to do what it needs to do and will take the time it needs to do it. I know it's hard, but try to give yourself a break and focus on improving your health rather than just losing pounds. That way you will have rewards you can count on, rather than wait for the fickle scale to tell you you done good.

(This is what I'm telling you to do, not what I did. LOL. I stressed and complained for the first month, just like most of us did.)

I feel the same way. I was sleeved four days ago. But, I know that as long as I'm following the plan something has to come odf. My first appointment after surgery is next week, so if lose anything it will ease my mind.

It took about two weeks till after surgery for me to start really dropping weight. Don't get frustrated. It was slow early on for me too. It'll come off. Try and get more calories in. Once I started eating higher calorie foods i started dropping the weight.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
