My weight was down 4 pounds yesterday, but back up 3 pounds this morning. I cried. I saw a Red Lobster commercial for endless shrimp last night. I cried. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!

I totally feel you. I am a daily weight checker type of person and I was down and then up and down again - it is nerve wracking, we are going to drive ourselves nuts. I am obsessively looking up pureed food. I think when I go back to work it will help me get my mind off my food crush. Breaking up is hard to do, right?

Are you eating enough? How about walking? Do you still feel bloated from gas?

I feel like I must be eating enough because I feel satisfied. Although, what is satisfied after surgery, right? For sure I am having two Meal Replacements a day and two Snacks as well as one "meal" now. A meal would be what I puree and is on my list of acceptable foods. I feel less bloated. I have not been exercising much because my back still hurts a lot. My back hurts on a regular basis anyway because of back problems but any time I have had abdominal surgery it hurts more because I compensate abdominal muscles using my back muscles. I walk around a lot, though.

Maybe I am eating too much. I am going to keep going doing what I am doing for at least the next week and then reevaluate, probably putting exercise back in.

Weird, huh.

I am so afraid I'm going to fail. I am down 12 pounds since surgery day, 35 overall. But I constantly craving the bad foods. pizza, cheese, sweets, you name it. I move to stage 2 foods today and I'm hoping that just having something more substantial to eat will help. But I'm terrified that once I can eat other foods I won't be able to stop myself.

Do you have the option of seeing a therapist? Talking to a professional really helped me start to get over my food addiction. Then I read a book called Never Binge Again, and that made all sorts of light bulbs go off for me.

I think we all worry that we are going to fail, so now is the time for us to fix our mindsets, so our sleeves can help us more!

I'm feeling better lately, thanks. I'm down 35 pounds total and am in sort of a stall, but I'm hoping that's ending soon. What are you guys eating during the pureed stage? I go to the next stage on Tuesday, but I'm getting a little bored with cottage cheese, yogurt and cream Soups. My nut says no meats in the pureed stage. Anyone having any luck with pureed veggies though? I did try some mashed cauliflower that was great.

My stage 2 plan includes canned meats such as tuna, chicken or ham. Can mix with a small amount of low fat mayo.

That's stage 3 for me. Soon!

Stage three for me is tuna also but I have had some without an issue. I have been eating an egg that's really finely chopped up with the yolk. Scrambled eggs were a no go. Mostly I am eating my shakes and I will eat some baby food but I don't like the bland taste unless I am really hungry. It has to be something low in sugar and that's hard to find in baby food.

Really my dietician recommendation puréed meat like tuna or puréed turkey meat on the 7th day after surgery and then 3 days later told me to go to chopped I haven’t lost a pound since I’m hopeful that will change soon I’m getting so disappointed in myself

Don't be too discouraged. I ended up not losing one pound on pureed. I switched to stage 3 (soft proteins) on Friday, and I've lost a pound a day ever since!

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
