5.5 weeks, 40 days Post-op



Recommended Posts

Since post - op i am 28lbs down, weight loss is on stall. Not a very good progress. I started eating everything but very very less sugar. No cheese and less oil. I ear crabs but not too much. If i drink Water after eating, i throw up everything. That happens once every few days when i can't resist having water.

I feel super hungry but mentally and even before i have 2 3 bites i feel full. And that's not a worry thats how it is supposed to be but not having good weight loss is making me go crazy.

Have not started work out yet. 1.5 week back i had a normal checkup with my family doctor and he said not to start gym not even cardio for 10 more days because to hernia. I will be starting cardio soon.

What to do about the weight stall? It stays the same for like a week keeps increasing decreasing, pisses me off so bad. I get stressed.

First. Who said that you have not made good progress?? Your expectations are too high. Your weight loss is amazing. Surgery is a tool. You are not going to lose 100 lbs overnight. scale will go up and down. You will hit a stall and the scale doesn't move. Accept it and safe yourself the frustration.

28lb in the first five weeks is quite a bit. How much did you expect to lose? What was your start weight? Don't forget your body is possibly still carrying some Fluid while in recovery mode.

There are going to a lot of stalls along the way, you had best get use to them. Stalls are a normal part of weight loss with or without WLS. You keep on doing what you are doing, occasionally things may need shaking up though. It seems typically to have a stall after about three or four weeks if past forum posts are anything to go by.

These results sound great to me. I’ll be on week 5 this coming Wednesday and so far I’ve lost 17 pounds since surgery. Hit a stall between week 2-3 and it finally broke. It was frustrating but I’m happy with my progress. There’s no way for this not to work as long as we do what we’re supposed to do. You’re doing great. Stalls are the not fun part of the process.

I have to say, if I had lost 28 lbs. 5.5 weeks post op I would be jumping around like I just won on the Price Is Right. I am 5 weeks post op today and am barely hitting 20. I've been at a stall now for two weeks and keep going up and down and up and down and up and down the same lb. or two. It's very, very discouraging. All we can do is get our Fluid and Protein minimums in and trust the process. Everyone says these stalls are completely normal and will break. Hang in there and try to stay positive!

You are doing great! When was the last time you lost 28 pounds? Don't compare your weight loss to others and give the scale a break. Look for non scale victories... are your clothes fitting better, etc.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
