So, first post-op visit ONLY 8lbs down..... 32 lbs total isn’t that bad



Recommended Posts

So, stepping on the scale I was excited to think that I may have loss at least 10lbs. But as the story of my previous weight loss efforts, great try and effort but still short. It’s been 2 weeks - no complications, getting all my Protein and liquids. .... So, 8 lbs sucks, but it’s better than gaining weight. So, I recommit to 64 oz of Water (not counting protein shakes); hitting my protein mark, kicking the walking into high gear.
Can’t wait to see what my three month visit has in store for me !!

8 pounds in two weeks is WONDERFUL! Each person's body has its own timetable and it'll come one day at a time. ANY loss is better than NO loss. Way to go! Good job! Keep up the good work!

Ave. weight loss post surgery is 2-4lbs. Congrats for being at the top of average. :)

When was the last time you lost 8lbs in 2 weeks? :)

I also agree. Any amount of weight lost is a great thing.

8 lbs in the first two weeks is fine. A lot of people come home from the hospital heavier than when they went in because of all the fluids they pump into you. It takes a few days to get that all out of your system and for the real weight loss to begin. I lost 16 lbs in the first *month* (I don't remember what it was in the first two weeks), so we're probably about the same.

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....

      1 month and 4 days from surgery and not losing. Actually have gained a couple pounds. Can't figure out what I am doing incorrectly. Have an appointment in a couple weeks hopefully she can sort me out. I don't know if I am not eating enough, not drinking enough, not walking enough. I get 60g of protein min a day, most days more. I have lost only 12 pounds since my surgery and I honestly thought I would be further along then this. Feeling regretful the last couple of weeks and I know it's early on but I feel like my honeymoon is being wasted.

      Hey ya'll. I've been trying to get more protein in my diet. I started tracking what I ate this week and I like it so far. It sort of feels like a game. I've also been trying to eat alot slower. That helps.  My coworker who hasn't seen me in a week said I was slimmer. That made me feel good! lol Tomorrow, I have 3 appointments. I have my weight management, my psych and my visit to my primary care. They recently changed my primary care doctor so I'm looking forward to meeting this new person. Tomorrow is a big deal for me. I promised my nutritionist that I'd lose 3 pounds the next time she saw me. (I don't know why I said that) She told me she believed me because of the determination in my voice. idk ya'll. This whole process is scary. I'm scared of starting over. Last month, I weighed 205.5 LETS SEE how much I weigh in at tomorrow. Send positive vibes ❤️
