Loosing too much weight



Recommended Posts

Friends,

Have any of you experienced too much weight-loss? I started at 402 and 18 months later I'm 159. I was 184 just 6 weeks ago and that was perfect for me and my doctors. Has anyone else found themselves unable to stop dropping pounds?

Yes. I had this happen. I started at 248 surgery date. At 14 months I was at 130 and pretty comfortable. My surgeon predicted I would end at 124. I kept going past that and went to 113. I was eating my Protein and drinking my Water and making sure I got my exercise in. I tried seeing my nutritiinist who told me I needed to add calories and should start drinking Ensure. I did not do Ensure. At 17 months I picked up a pound and at 18 months I went to 116. I am holding firm at that weight. It will be 2 years in April. It just seemed that my body knew where it wanted to stop and did what it had to do to end healthy. Dont be afraid. You have done wonderful. Trust yourself. Your brain and body will work this out. Good Luck.

I eat anything I want because after after 4 to 6 ounces, I'm done.

But you should know that I've had post-op complications. I got multiple infections, stomach leaked, 4 surgeries and so on and so on.

Hope you have healed and mended and are now enjoying your new life! Congrats on your dramatic losses!

Are you ounces by volume or weight? So you're talking 3/4cup to 1cup?

My surgeon and RD said the 1 cup maximum volume is for life. What you put into that 1cup depends on if you're gaining or losing or maintaining.

Looks like you are just barely in your normal range. I wouldn't worry, but would try to max out your nutrition at every meal so you are getting the most nutrient dense food you can get.

Thank you.

These charts are crap. If anything they show you what is too thin if you fit in their normal range. The real concern is that I dropped 25 pounds over the past 5-6 weeks. 18 months into this my weight should be stabilizing - maybe drop a pound a week and even seeing a few weeks where I gain a bit.

Have you seen any physicians about this issue yet? Are they concerned? Why do they think you’ve lost weight?recently?

I brought up my concern a few weeks back. I had just went below 170 at the time. Doctor wasn't overly concerned. Mention drinking a weight gain shake. He is supposed to call me after I notified his office yesterday what my weight had d5opped down too. Still waiting for that call.

Yes, I started 225 in March now I'm 120 doing the same as you, but sometimes I can't eat much.

      This is completely unreal but two days in a row now I have seen less than 200 pounds on the scale for the first time in over 15 years. I am a pound away from my first goal of 199 at 13.5 months post op. Time to set a new goal for the New Year!

      hello all i have a question i have cigna and i called them personally to ask if they cover the weight loss surgery and they told me off the bat that they do not cover weight loss surgery. my question is should i have my dr submit something in writing?

        Yes, continue to fight this with Cigna! Ask what process they require for a possible review of your case? Ask your surgeon and his team to help you clarify and challenge.

        Since weight loss surgery has gained more popularity and momentum - Cigna from our experience is playing games with their patients who wish to get healthier. It is egregious that Cigna would rather pay for someone's weight related heart attack, hernia, diabetes, sleep apnea and/or other costly conditions then being pro-active! As for ourselves, we tired of jumping thru they're hoops putting off my surgery until April or May 2019 with continued ridiculous, redundant requests. Yet, we know of a colleague where Cigna was cooperative and approved without a hitch.

        Because I needed weight relief off my injured left knee when exercise and dieting were no longer effective... We made the decision to self pay and get on the road to self restoration sooner than later. I wanted to start my new year with a hope and future. For us, the Cigna mill was becoming just to stressful. And, we hold a premium policy with a reputable international corporation. They refuse to pay for vitamin regime now, too.

        Your Cigna story may be better. Not to discourage you - you may or may not have a fight. It is your health and worth fighting for. Do let me know what transpires, will you? Many best wishes for a very positive outcome.

        I don't know anything specifically about Cigna, but maybe they were thinking about the cosmetic kind. Maybe you should have said "bariatric surgery" or asked specifically about their benefits for medically necessary bariatric surgery? I got lucky and my insurance had very good coverage and benefits for WLS and I was approved on the first request. Out of $50,000 billed for the surgery I only had to pay $600.00.
