Bad day



Recommended Posts

Just need to vent. I am about 1.5 weeks out of gastric bypass. Things have been going quite well. Today I had a terrible day at work and went back to eating like before. Of course the difference now is “over-eating” is maybe eating a cup vs 1/4 cup. However, my stomach is killing me and I feel so sick. And disappointed with myself.

I know everyone on the forum says people should not complain about loss not coming fast or stalls. And I know I am literally 1.5 weeks out from surgery. But I have lost nothing. Same weight today as the day of surgery. You wait for months, go through specific diet, pain of surgery. I did go up after surgery and that is all gone now- but I keep hearing about people losing 10 pounds first week and I’m starting to feel like I did this for nothing. I was already doing weight watchers and trying to eat healthy and exercise. Will my results be any different if I had just kept doing that? Losing 1-2 pounds per week?

I try to be upbeat most of the time and think positively, but this day has just gotten to me. Just a bad work day which is killing my self confidence and making me feel useless.

Tomorrow is a new day.

Thanks for listening.

I gained 8 lbs of Water weight in the hospital. They have pumped you full of fluids in case you could not drink much after surgery. Dont worry it wil come off quickly in the next week or so.

I didn’t lose for the first at least two weeks. Your body is healing and focused on that, not focused on losing weight. No
More weighing yourself for a bit

I completely understand, I am just over a month out and having lost jack sh*t. Everyone said your healing, it wasn't that, then it's Water weight. It wasn't that. Then I was told well your weight fluctuates, this is very true, but no in my case it was gain. 3 lbs in fact and its taken another week of extreme cardio just to loose 2 of the 3 lbs. I gained eating exactly whats on the menu the dietitian gave me. So finally I am back down to where I started, I wake up this morning and of course another 2 lbs gained. My gain wasn't anything other than gain, I don't know why or how, but it wasn't healing, or water, or constipation. Moral of the story is hide your scale because it will make you crazy and take it easy because beating yourself doesn't work either. Just take one day at a time, it's all we can do.

Hope by now all the frowns have turned upside down, if not we are still here for you Baby!
Woke up myself with upper abdominal/stomal pain. Is it the 5 ulcers romping and stomping? Can I drown their pain if I start drinking Fluid in? Am. I actually hungry? If I am, will anything stay down or is this a precursor to a pukey day again? I try to remember days when I woke up feeling good. Another poster stated " Don't Force Emesis" but what when it seem inevitable? How much can it be stifled?

Glad I saw this - I was frustrated with my own stall from 3 days after surgery. Have you girls progressed?

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
