Glad you’re losing! I’m 2 weeks post op and not really losing at all. I got rid of all of the 10lbs water/gas weight I gained post op but have only truly lost 3lbs so far. Trying not to be discouraged by the scale not budging 😩🤦🏽‍♀️

I'm sure we'll experience a loss soon? We have to! I'm sure our bodies are just in starvation mode right now. What is your diet like right now? I'm curious about everybody. I'm feeling a little more hungry today as I haven't had much food at all post-op. I do fill fast though. I'm planning on adding another Protein Shake per day to the below:

Water - 45ish ounces per day - trying to drink as much as possible

Breakfast - 1 Premier Protein shake

snack - sugar free pudding

lunch - maybe like a 3/4 cup Creamy Soup - strained

dinner - 2 oz. low sugar Yogurt

Did you do measurements? Honestly that’s the only thing that kept me semi sane when the scale wasn’t moving

dinner usually about the same as lunch lol

As for Water I’m still struggling to do even 30 oz

As much as I used to obsessively measure myself, I not only forgot to do preop measurements but I haven’t measured myself at all! I probably really need to. Thanks for the reminder to do so!

@Jessbear345 - your tuna and Soup sound yummy! I'm excited to graduate to puree's in a couple days.

@ALFxRNY - I feel you on the stall. I E-Mailed my doctor's office to see if they could send me my measurements they took in the office because I too have not been measuring. Great tip and reminder though because although the scale is not moving, I do feel a wee bit thinner. Jeans are a little loose today.

I did measurements and got sad because they were bigger measurements than what I took when I was in the 300s. I don’t know what is going on with my body. My clothes are a little looser but I’m not really seeing changes. I go back to my surgeon’s office early August so I’ll try to give my body time to adjust

@ALFxRNY - my follow up is in mid-August too. You must be holding on to some Water weight. I'm sure you'll see a loss soon. You're nice and tall so everything is probably just trying to adjust around to the shock. Awesome job on the 35 lbs. already!!! What are your meals like right now?

Well 35 from when I first started my journey. Post op (including the 10 lbs I gained) I’ve lost about 14 lbs. I still look very swollen though. Hopefully the walks will help. I’m just starting incorporate purées this week. My diet was just 60g of Protein (2 shakes a day) and 30-40 oz of Water. Sometimes I’d have a little broth to cleanse my palette of the sweetness of the shakes. As of yesterday I have incorporated a little bit of tuna (very tiny serving sizes) twice a day. And cool that we both have August follow ups. How is everything going on your end?

@ALFxRNY - You're doing everything you need to be. I keep telling myself that too. All we can do is be patient. I bet the walks will definitely help. Good job on getting in all that Protein. I think I'm going to try tuna on Sunday. Sounds yummy. I'm doing better. I think I passed a kidney stone this week. I'm still sore on the left side but it feels better today than yesterday. Once I feel the muscles have healed on the left, I'll be eager to begin some light working out. Right now, it's just daily walks/strolls.

A kidney stone! Wow! And I still have the soreness on the left side of my stomach too. I more over feel it if I move too quickly. Hope you feel even better soon and that you enjoy your tuna Sunday 😉

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

      My Body Image Issues:
      07/20/18 Friday
      I am writing this because it seems like no matter how hard I do love myself and have confidence it's like it's hard to believe the words I say and also my old eating disorder/OCD mind tends to take over sometimes and before I know it I'm counting EVERY food that I eat and feeling very fat/freaking out. I'm trying to do my affirmations everyday and fix myself up nice to make myself feel better but it seems like nothing makes me feel better and I go back to either these bad thoughts or I want to self harm to heal myself or randomly yell at people. I get no stress release from my frustrations thus I become even more OCD spend and have other  bad addictions besides OCD'ing on the food I eat like overly exercise until my feet really blister or hurt or over spend on items I think I need to feel a void. I'm tired of putting myself through the ringer but it feels like nothing is never ever enough for me and I'm always searching for answers in the wrong places.

      Summer heat has been debilitating to taking frequent walks. My future success depends on amping up exercise. So happy to see others achieving remarkable weight loss

      I am struggling right now.  I am working out 4.5 hours a week and it hasn't felt good for the last 2 weeks.  Feels more like a chore and I don't know why.  I am still going but it has been a fight. Corresponding to this I have also been wanting to eat - eat everything we aren't supposed to eat. I have held back for the most part but I have splurged - full sugar vanilla pudding cup, I had a chocolate chip cookie and tortillas. I even stopped tracking my food. I am back on track, but I feel really down right now. I am already seeing someone, and it helps, but wow I am not feeling like myself. I am hoping this is a passing phase. I don't want these feelings to continue. Sigh...
