Newly sleeved. Slow loss



Recommended Posts

I lost 10 lbs my first week. My second week is almost over and I've lost nothing. What the heck? I'm a band to sleeve revision and unfortunately comparing to the band where I lost 9 my first week and 4 my second. I'm so confused as I'm only having my Protein Shake and purees

I went through a stall around that same time. Keep doing what you are doing and increase your Water intake. I started losing a pound a day right after that.

It's a little bit discouraging especially with a post op infection. Making me wonder why I did this all

10lbs in 2 weeks is a good loss! Don't get discouraged - stick with your plan - Protein, Fluids, Vitamins - the weight will come off. Stay strong! If you stay at this rate - you'd have lost 100lbs at 20 weeks (5 months)! That's not small potatoes!

I also stalled at 2 weeks. So 2nd week nothing 3rd week nothing I was so obsessed with the scale I kept asking my husband what am I doing wrong why why why. Then I just read all the comments and others story's and they are right stop obsessing with the scale and stop feeling down it will go away and you will lose again. I'm so thankful to say I up my Protein and 3 1/2 weeks letter I'm losing again. So I'm a slow loser but better then nothing. I don't mind loosing a pound every other day or so. So hang in there and listen to others that have been here and done that we are lucky to have their support. Keep going it will happen soon.

10 lbs the first week is a lot considering all the fluids from the IV... most people gain weight during that week. Your body is just catching up. 10 lbs is a lot.

I gained almost 10lbs from the ivs! I'm only down 4lbs after surgery but I'm super excited. This is a tool not a magic wand. ..use it to your advantage! And stay away from the scale.

Darling, don't get discouraged. I too went from band to sleeve and I'm having a hard time not comparing my first weight loss to my current weight loss. I lost 100lbs in six months with the band. I lost the first week or two with the sleeve and immediately hit a stall. I've started exercising again and I'm seeing some slight movement on the scale but nothing like when I was banded. Even though my weight isn't falling off like before, I can see a difference in how clothes are fitting.

So keep your chin up and make adjustments. You might even consider doing measurements because maybe you're toning more but not moving the scale. Also, are you taking your Vitamins? My weight started to go down more when I started taking my Vitamins regularly as well. Good luck!

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

        Had surgery on Thursday the 17th. Everything went well and came home the next day. I have been on two protein shakes and liquids/broth each day since but will finally graduate to pureed foods on Thursday. Been walking and doing my breathing exercises as recommended. No pain that Tylenol can't ease but only needed it twice since I've been home. Don't bother taking extra stuff to the hospital as you will not use it. No time to read or talking as you will be sipping all day long and walking. And they will be giving you pain meds so you will be sleepy. Definitely take lip balm and wear loose clothes to the hospital and wear the same ones home. No need to overpack. Good luck everyone who will be going next. YOU GOT THIS!!!!

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.
