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?

What is your success. You must be doing something right. Have you increased your calories a bit

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.

Do you have any other new symptoms? You are right, that is a lot to lose so quickly 18 months post surgery. I hope you find some answers soon.

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