Gaining weight with a new phase?



Recommended Posts

Do most people gain weight once they start the next phase? I'm only 1.5 weeks post op, and I'm scared that I will start gaining weight once I get into the next phase. My weight loss is already slowing down. I was losing a pound a day, and the last few days have been point something. Suggestions please. Thanks!

You're not taking in enough calories to gain. Even with a change in phase at this point. Your weight loss WILL slow down but there's not anything you can do about that. We lose a large amount in the beginning with pre/post op diets. Its normal to slow down to 2lbs a week depending on your weight and habits. But this soon out i wouldnt worry. Mainly because your still healing. So long as you keep at what your doing, move at your own pace and sip, sip, sip, you should be fine. Just take it slow. I didn't start weighing consistently until well after a month post. I'm almost a year.

If you expect to lose 1 pound a day throughout your weight loss phase, your expectations are dreadfully unrealistic unless you're a youngish male or your starting weight was 400+ pounds.

Think about it...if you lose 1 pound a day consistently, you will have lost 365 pounds in a year. Is that realistic or sustainable? No, it isn't, and it won't happen. Ever.

People may gain or stall when progressing to the next phase, but it's Water weight. It's not fat gain. It's Fluid gain. It's temporary.

Weight loss with a sleeve isn't a neat, clean, linear process. We lose pounds, then stall or plateau at times, them may even gain weight due to fluid retention before dropping pounds again.

By the way, the vast majority of my losses were single digit (1 to 7 pounds monthly). I lost 100 pounds in 17 months, so I was a slower loser.

What matters is my ability to maintain my new, lower body weight. No one gives a rat's behind how slowly or rapidly I lost it except for me.

Good luck to you, and stay off the scale so often. :)

I'm having this same problem honestly like I want it to go fast but I keep forgetting I already lost 37 pounds so far and it's not even one month. so Idk im so eager to get to 200 pounds but that's more than 100 pounds. Keep pushing you got this I promise

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
