I’ve been pretty discouraged by my lack of weight loss following gastric sleeve surgery. I’m just shy of being three weeks out and have only lost 9lbs despite following the program exactly as instructed. Took my measurements today and I have to say this lifted my spirits. I may only be down 9lbs but I’ve lost 27 inches total! Absolutely incredible. I’ve never been able to accomplish this before in my life with all the yo yo dieting I put myself through. If there’s anyone out there feeling disappointed with your journey, don’t give up hope! Thought I’d share and hopefully lift someone else’s spirits too.

Sometimes we need to stop looking at the scale and count the Non-Scale Victories. You're only 3 weeks out, give it some time. Expect a stall when transitioning from liquids to soft foods.

Amazing !! I’m getting better and better about not getting on the scale. It’s better for our overall health and well being to be positive and that 12x12 piece of whatever it’s made of robs me of that.

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

        @Orchids&Dragons, thanks! 💚

      4. Dr-Patient

        Congratulations. I remember that day for me: May 13, 2014. I thought it'd never happen (especially after a 7-day stall at 200.2!!), but it was a "Hallelujah" day! Now...stay on program so you can stay in Onederland. After five years, especially...when ghrelin returns. So stay on track.

        CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!! Onederland is a GREAT place to be.
