Six weeks out from surgery with limited weight loss. Ugh!



Recommended Posts

I didn't read all of the comments but I just want to say what an amazing job you've done so far!!!!! My surgeons guidelines indicate 20-40lbs in the first 6 weeks is fairly standard. Some people don't even lose that much but I believe in the end of the day it all adds up just the same. Don't be too hard on yourself. Based on your eating plan-- it sounds like you've got great options. Give it time. Log your weight from week to week. I have done that since surgery and I notice a pattern. I'll have a week where I lose 5, 6, or 7lbs and then the next week it seems the scale hardly moves. The week following that I might have a 2 week loss and then another 5-7 lb loss. I take that as the body is calibrating-- making necessary adjustments. If I didn't do that, I think I'd stress out on the weeks where I have a 0.2 lb loss. When I can look back over time and see trends it makes more sense. Consider measuring yourself and understand weight loss happens in different forms. We like to call them NON scale VICTORIES. Stay on the right path. Don't get discouraged and remember if you're doing all you're supposed to -- it's got to go somewhere. 1 year from now all the highs and lows will be a distant memory. Slow and steady wins the race.

I meant to say a 1-2 lb loss and then the next week another 5-7 lb loss.

Those are the highest Protein goals Ive seen on here. I'm 1 month Post op DS surgery and my goals are 64 oz of Water and 90 grams of Protein. And I've lost 31 lbs in 5 weeks. Sounds to me like protein is too high in my opinion
