How Do People Not Lose Once at Goal?



Recommended Posts

I've still got 28 pounds to lose, so this isn't currently an issue, but I'm wondering how people stop losing weight once they reach their goal. I don't feel like I'm depriving myself or hungry. I eat lots of lean Protein and vegetables and snack on nuts, string cheese, and other high protein foods, something I didn't do before my surgery, but I feel like this is the new normal for me. I don't see myself changing this new way of eating once I get to a healthy BMI, so how does the body know to stop losing? I'll meet with my doctor in June when I have my surgiversary and I'm sure his nurse will go over this with me. I'm just wondering if a WLS veteran can give any insight into this. I'm curious.

I never feel deprived, either. I eat full fat foods and Proteins. If you had the full DS you can, too.

If you run into the problem of losing too much, remember many people have a small rebound after a few years. However, if you're just too thin, you can try adding more carbs. If that causes gas issues, than an enzyme like creon is usually recommended and that should stop the weight loss.

Thank you for your response. Yes, I had the full DS and eat full fat foods. I've got a ways to go before I reach my goal, but I'm hoping to be there by June or soon after. I never thought I'd ever worry about losing too much weight. I've never heard of creon.

It’s rarely a problem.

Usually the fact that as you shrink you need fewer calories just to be alive takes care of it.

If not, low volume dense calorie foods can be added... a few more nuts, nut butter, full fat dairy, avocados, olive oil on your veggies, etc. It doesn’t take much.

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
