I still feel quite weak and tired when I do much. I think this is largely because I'm still on liquids only. My surgeon advised that exercise should be limited to walking for six weeks rather than anything more high impact.

I tried the elliptical machine yesterday, and found that my energy was not enough and once I switched to walking on the treadmill I was able to walk for 40 minutes no problem. I will be doing the treadmill only for another couple of weeks. I also try to get in a lot of Water the first part of the day before I switch to pureed food.

Not sure if it’s been asked, just wondering how are the April surgeries doing with weight loss. I had my surgery on 4/11 and just think I should be losing more.

Surgery was 4/24. Day of Surgery weight 298, today 263. Walking at least 1 hour or more 6 days a week, noticed that if I am not getting 600 - 800 cals intake per day weight loss stops cold. I also overdid it last week on a walk because I thought I was good and I was wiped out for 2 days. Walking works, walking too far or running or elliptical is a bridge too far at this point. Keep up the good work, the results will come

My VSG was 4/2 - I am down 26 which does seem slow to me - but I realize this is going to be a complete life long switch - so slow and steady is fine. Too many diets in my past with large losses and even bigger gains, sadly. I know I need to exercise more and to ramp up my walking. I am doing some - but any motivations out there would be appreciated! I'm thankful the sleeve is keeping my eating way down - but I realize I am starting to feel hungrier as time goes on. Any tips for satisfying the hunger correctly would also help! I've still got a long road to go. Nice to see everyone's updates on here!

Surgery was 4-25. I weighed in at 258, now I’m 240. I had a stall, but it’s moving again.

I’m feeling pretty good. I’m at the stage where I’m frustrated that I get tired faster than I’d like and that I can’t lift stuff. But, I’m back at work and walking/running again, which is helping me feel more normal.

Hi. I had surgery on 4/15/19. HW 378. DOS 319.8. CW 296.9. I’m happy with my progress. I lost the first 18 lbs in less than 2 weeks and because of the rapid weight loss my body went into self preservation mode and it stalled. But I’m moving again and I think its because I am finally able to get in more Protein and calories. I also walk about 2 miles and do a work out video at home about 5 days per week. So be patient. When you lose weight fast and then stop it’s your body’s natural reaction. Good luck!

Hiya! I think we have similar stats - i didn't really lose much weight at all the first few weeks.

I gained 10 pounds post surgery from iv fluids. The last two weeks my weight loss has picked up.

I also increased my calories recently. I was eating like 450-480 calories a day but am trying to be somewhere in the 600's.

I walk 4 miles a day. I want to join the gym soon.

Surgery date 4/8

HW: 303 or 304

SW: 262 ( 272 pre liver shrink)

CW: 238.8

Yea I can only eat about 600-700 calories per day. I think the more we can eat eventually the more we’ll lose. But stalls are part of the process.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
