Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m 9 weeks POST OP and wondering how many calories you were taking in at my stage? How about carbs?

Thank you! 😊

600- 800 calories daily. Usually closer to the 800.

Carbs tried to keep under 50 usually ended up at about 60 grams per day.

Thank you so much for responding! ☺️ That’s close to what I’m getting in. Haven’t lost anything the last 3 weeks.

About to start week 7 and I’m between 800-1000 and try to get close to 1000 especially on days I workout. 50 total carbs or less and at least 80 grams of Protein.

Upping my calories helped me break my stall. I started at a much higher weight than most an less than 800 calories was not working after the first couple of weeks.

Yes, slightly upping my calories helped too. I am 5 weeks post op and hit a stall for about three weeks even though I was walking daily. I remembered several years back I was very successful with Weight Watchers and lost a lot of weight and hit a stall. The WW rep told me to increase my calories slightly (100-200 cals) with nutrient rich food (not junk) and it worked. I applied this theory again and have been losing a pound a day since. Also, walking helps tremendously.

I'm 10weeks today. I'm eating between 600-800 cals per day (mostly closer to 650-750). Protein is around 70-75g/day. I keep carbs between 20-40g day net. it's about 3/4 cup of food by volume and about 2-2.5oz protein per meal and 1-1.5oz of veg per meal.

I am also 600-800 calories/day until 3 month appointment. Not sure what happens then.

      I'm going in for a sleeve revision October 4th. It worked well for me, and I am not back to my starting weight. However, a revision is strongly encouraged at this time (there are additional medical issues). I have decided to forgo the insurance process, even though I know I would eventually be approved. "Eventually" is the key issue here. I have a small window to create this to where it will not impact my work or home life as much, and waiting for the insurance approval would take over a year.

      I just read @BoredCW's status post and also want to lament the loss of my butt.  Looking at me the side, my back is basically flat from my neck to my knees.  My jeans have lovely fabric folds draping from my backside from lack of filling.
      Two days ago, I was sitting on a worn couch at the gym and I could feel the springs and count how many I was sitting on.  Told the Kid and she said she wants to find her childhood alphabet fridge magnets in the basement to spell out words and have me sit on them and do some "butt-braille-reading" 😂

        HI-LAR-ious! I love your kid!!!

        Yeah, we all suffer from noassatall syndrome. :(

        Yes. I think the spandex in jeans is the only thing that helps keep the sag below the pockets form looking ridiculous. Even leggings wrinkle there.

        Ah, our disappearing collective butts.

        I am seriously considering changing my plastics plan. I am booked for an arm lift in December, but my summer obsession with arm exercises has improved the look of them quite a bit to the point that I think I may hate my butt more than my arms. Should I do a butt lift instead?!?! In conjunction with?!?!?

        I am trying to cultivate an obsession with butt exercises but its not working so far...

        I don't think you could do both at the same time. For me personally it's arms. I have granny wrinkles down to my elbows. I can always dover my body with tshirts, pants, etc but unless I wear long sleeves my arms are an issue. I also can't wear a small enough jacket since it fits everywhere but too tight in the arms. They measure around 13.5 inches. Can you compromise and get the smaller arm lift. I don't know if that saves much $ or recovery but if your arms improved that much maybe just a tweek will work?

      On the 3 week plateau from hell.. It seems like an endless desert with sand dunes that represent the 1-2 pounds gain then dropped from day to day. Met with my weight loss group tonight and was told its normal. That this is sometimes like a step, plateau then drop, plateau then drop. Only for the plateau's to go on longer the farther away from the surgery date I get. Much like EDM, I can't wait for the drop. 
      On top of it all, I lost my ass. Seriously.. its gone. All that cushion that I enjoyed lounging on eating what ever I ate, watching what ever was on the computer or tv... is gone. That glorious support system is vamoosed. I know this because my ass (tailbone) hurts all the time. I'm sitting on bone now and its sore. I am my own literal Pain in the Ass! (My family would say whats new, but who cares about them.. my butt hurts.) I have yet to bring a pillow with me everywhere I go to sit on, but I'm getting ready to as I sit for my job working on computers. So far losing the weight is a Pain. I hope it gets better.

        Hang in there, the plateau will end eventually. Also I feel you on the butt thing.

        I have a butt pillow. I'm not proud. :D

        The plateaus suck!!!! Keep the faith and motor on!

      In a bit of a stall right now.   267-269 lbs the past week.   Almost wrote that as "367-369".   
      Still 158 lbs. lighter than my heaviest.
