October 2016-Surgery Date. Where are you now?



Recommended Posts

I was sleeved on 10/24/16. I'm 5'4. 35 years old. SW 235. CW 188. Down 47lbs. If my 13+ weeks I've stalled about 5 of them ????. Not back to back though! I'm currently in a 4 day stall now. I need to do better with Water that's for sure. Gym 3 times a week and on those days I notice I'm a bottomless pit. Lol.

I'm wondering if people's calorie intake has increased in the last month or two.

My sleeve surgery date was Oct 24 and the scale said 218 (initial pre-op weight was 230.) I posted my stats earlier in the thread but today I'm 184. I've had some hiccups along the way but mostly I'm just so happy with this!

To try and stay more accountable to myself about what I'm actually eating, I decided a week or two ago to use myfitnesspal to track my food and exercise. It turns out I'm eating about 1100-1400 calories a day. It feels okay to me and non-restrictive (I don't feel like I'm "dieting"). It feels like a eating lifestyle I could keep forever. I'm losing, but very slowly. But maybe I'm worried that I'm eating more like a person on "maintenance" than someone in the peak of their weight loss arc. I will ask my doctor when I see her in two weeks but just curious how much others are able to eat and/or want to eat. :D Thanks!

I stay right around 1000 calories, I try to get at least 800 calories a day. I have slowed losing as well. This week I haven't lost anything. I'm down 59 pounds, I get stressed when I stop losing though. I'm afraid I'm going to stop losing.

SW- 278

CW- 220

How many carbs are y'all getting a day? I know my carbs are high but I have to have some fruits and veggies. I am having horrible BM issues, I have to go and can't go at all even on major meds. My GI insists I have to have some fruit and veggies daily. It is making my carbs so high!

I am still not able to eat much on most days. But I was sleeved on October 21, 2016. I am 5'3", weighed 257lbs before surgery and now weigh 211lbs. Excited to keep losing!

I still have to force myself to eat. Often it is bedtime and I have only had 500 calories, I have to eat another meal before bed!

My carbs and calories are so low that I really don't worry about counting them. I know I am getting about 500 to 600 Cal a day if I am lucky, and very low carbs because they literally make me sick. And as far as BM, I know the feeling, I am in the same boat, I bought laxatives to help because it is that bad. I have Fiber supplements too! I was told to take Metamucil too. I, too have to force myself to eat still. That is the only problem I have ever had. I have never been one to overeat. I have to verify with the surgeon that I was doing the right thing!

My nut actually had me increase my calories to 1000, so that doesn't feel way off base to me.

I am doing well. Haven't been on in a while. Surgery date was 10/5. Starting weight was 254, surgery weight was 216, current weight is around 185 (and has been holding at that for a month-ish). I am feeling really good though. Wearing a size 10 and super happy.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
