Recommended Posts

Had my 1st gain this week of 1lb [emoji18] I know why as just not been making great food choices so going back to basics this week and logging all food eaten and cutting out the crap! This is a journey and like other have said it's still hard to change bad habits and being able to eat less is not enough if you still eat crap! Lol.

Stats

HT 5.5
Start 238lb
Current 173lb
Loss 65lb
Goal 26lb to loose

Surgery date 28/10/16

Month 7 and wait loss is becoming so difficult now. Not dropping like it was. I started training with a Personal trainer and she said the first few weeks I'd probably gain and now this is freaking my head out. I haven't gained since surgery and now I am!! Very frustrating as I am so close to 84lbs lost but it keep fluctuating between 80 and 82lbs ugh. I need to stop putting pressure on myself but really wanted to be 100lbs loss by the end of May. Have nutritionist appointment today. She wasn't any help when I started so don't know what she's going to do today. On the positive the inches are slowly going if the weight isn't.

While working out DON'T be discouraged by the scale. You will not see it move. And if it does, your trainers right it might go up. I've been doing CrossFit for a few months now and the first month a the scale didn't move but the inches we're coming off for sure. As my clothes are fitting much better! It's important that we're working out to keep or loose skin under control. Plus you'll feel so much more healthier to! Keep up the good work!

I'm getting discouraged as well. Weight is coming off so very slowly. I'm down 76 pounds and I am so grateful but I'm just stressed about it. I have lost 76 pounds and still haven't gone under 200. Frustrating!

Perspective is so interesting. I read this and thought "wow! 76 lbs in under six months!" Hell, in a year that would thrill me! I think your loss is absolutely amazing from over here! It sucks that you're frustrated. Im dying to see onederland too.

How many calories and carbs are you eating on average?

Have you followed up with a NUT?

was the bulk of that weight lost in the beginning or are you steadily losing even if it's slow?

Thank you so much, I did hit onderland finally.

I still can not poop. Anyone else having these issues? I am taking 3 ducolax and 3-4 bisacodyl daily to go.

I haven't lost anything in few months and a new diagnosis of sjorgens has kept me from pushing any workouts past walking (which I still do daily) put I am still determined to get the last 20 pounds off and keep them off. I am still learning my body with this new condition and at least this weight loss journey that I was already on prior to diagnosis is a benefit.

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!

        Hello! I m 3 weeks post op and I just went through the worst constipation of my life
        I was severely impacted for 4 days (it was at the door) it was the worst experience ever!
        within 2 hrs I did 2 suppositories and 2 enemas, it did nothing! I always had the urge to go but it wouldn't come out, with the enemas the urge was greater but still nothing! the following morning I did another enema and nothing. I ended up going to the ER and got IV hydration but they recommended to manually scoop some out which I did but girl it was not enough for relief. My MD recommended: stop protein shakes and go back to liquids only like during week 1 and oral exlax pills, 1 dose and if no bowel movement within 4 hrs then another dose. I needed the 2nd dose by the next day I finally started to get relief.

        my advise before you get so constipated like me, is drink smooth move tea and
        if you get impacted like i was maybe try the exlax after you contact your surgeon and let him know they may advise to stop the protein shakes until you have a bowel movement.

        I know you are only day 4 so maybe not to worry right now. I had my first bowel movement on day 5 post surg. BUT BEWARE of not drinking water!
        I struggle with my water intake too, which is why i became so constipated. all that protein but no water, I know its really hard but we have to try. for me that whole experience has been so bad I am afraid to eat anything! Drinking teas really helps me with the water. I like chamomile and the smooth move tastes pretty good. I also try to ALWAYS have a water bottle in my hand. that is a good reminder to drink it. right now i am assuming you are at home mostly resting so its easy to just have it in your hand at all times.
        and I know its prob bad but I havent had a protein shake in a week. I'm barely recuperating from all that impaction trauma, lol.

      2. Uniquely Me

        I hadn’t pooped in a week also. I was taking benefiber everyday and nothing. I finally decided to take a laxative and went. I’m 9 1/2 weeks post op DS.
