Hello i was sleeved on 4/27/16 and im stilllll not at my goal weight.:(I am so depressed and upset about it IM AT 80LBS down i wanted to be down 100lbs by my one year. It really depresses me because i was doing so well losing a lot of weight and then all of a sudden i hit like a 3 month stall and i was doing everything correctly and then i see people who have had the same Surgery date as me and are down over 100lbs .. i wonder if i am doing something wrong

I found this while reading articles about working out and another one about stalls in general. They both have some good information so I thought I'd share.

80lbs is Amazing btw. The article kind of implies to go back to basics which i'm sure you've heard. Try not to be so discouraged. You've accomplished something truly amazing. :) 170 is pretty good. If i get there by next year, i'd be golden. I suspect that you've likely put on some muscle as well. Take a look at the 1st article.

What do you eat in a day?

How many calories do you eat per day? Protein? Carbs? How much Water do you drink each day? Do you track your food and drink each day? What do you do for exercise?

Was the 100 pound loss your own goal? Or was that the 60% excess body weight calculated by your surgeon?

There's your problem. You have no idea how much your intake actually is. Start tracking it. You might be surprised at how much your snacking adds up. Or you may find that you're not eating enough. You can't figure this out until you become serious about tracking everything for a while.

Check out this calculator. It should tell you how much you were expected to lose with Gastric Sleeve. If you've already met or exceeded the predicted weight loss than you are doing great!

My recommendation is to get back to basics. Get your carbs below 25 grams per day, get your calories back to around 1200 or so, and get your Protein around 100 grams. Keep your Water at 64 oz or more. Track everything you eat and drink to make sure you are hitting these macros. If you are doing that, and getting some exercise each day, there is no reason to think that you won't start losing again.

Remember that the sleeve is not a magic wand. You have to change your relationship with food, and embrace this lifestyle of good eating in order to be successful long-term.

Good luck!

I really appreciate all of you guys help this has been a rough road for me .. i lost a few family members during this journey and also had a wedding so i have had a lot ups and downs and i didnt realize how much work was put into it and i think all of sudden it is just now hitting me and i hate the fact that i didnt realize this sooner . so im going to do as you guys said and going back to the basics tracking everything . I dont overeat because its still so hard to get things down so sometimes i just wont eat at all because i dont want to be bothered , i just hope its not too late to get back on track

@Chaelove0810 - I know exactly what you are going through! I have been in a yoyo stall since around october/nov - 2016 and i had surgery 3/1/2016.

My self imposed goal was 100 lb loss - and that would be a goal of 140 - I have gotten to 141 but never below. I recently have fluctuated back up to 146,147 at the highest and gotten back down to 142. it is a never ending cycle - But I DO track everything I eat in the free myfitnesspal app and can see a pattern. I had gall bladder surgery March 1 2017 (exactly 1 year after VSG with the same dr) after being hospitalized for 5 days with severe pancreatitis and ever since then i have been eating more carbs and junk because i feel tired and out of sorts.

but today I am gonna kickstart again - low low carbs - high high Protein -

PM Me if you want to join myfitnesspal and we can be friends and hold each other accountable :) Good Luck Half the battle is recognizing that you may be going the wrong path and then righting yourself!
