Diet Soda after VSG



Recommended Posts

Hi-

I had my sleeve in July 2018. I lost 40 pounds within 3 months and then have been stalled for a while. I started drinking diet soda again around that time. I am exercising and I do not think I am eating too much. Could the stall be linked to diet soda? I started at 240, I am now at 200. I am 5 feet 7, so I am trying to get to at least 180. Any thoughts?

Do you log your food? You need to know if you are hitting your calorie and macro goals.

How many calories are you eating these days? I think I am usually around 1000-1200. I will try to get off it. I know it is no good for me. I have been trying to track food as well. That also fell off, so tracking should help identify some issues. Thanks.

Are you using baritastic or myfitnesspal as a log?

@TomC

i don''t think so.' most docs say not to drink soda, but i don't think it effects

weight loss or gain. Just not good for you. Slapping your hand telling you to

stop! LOL

"we" all hate the word stall, but unfortunately its highlighted in the Bariatric Dictionary

you are doing great with your weight loss - i think you are at a basic horrible stall that happens

to all us. Three (3) months+ is a long time, but i've seen others that have stalled longer!!

horrible, horrible - this too shall pass.

Agree with OP, you should always track your food, drink etc.

PATIENCE (easier said then done)

good luck

I am using Baritastic, and you are all right. I need to get more consistent with this logging of my food intake.

Guys Room, ladies.

I started drinking pop again and probably never should have. I drink much less than I used to, but now I drink the regular stuff because I figure it's not as bad for me now (which probably isn't accurate).

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
