Stopped losing weight already?



Recommended Posts

So I had gastric bypass on March 27th. Within the first week I lost 25 lbs. But the past week I haven’t lost anything. Did any of you stop loosing weight for a short period then start loosing again? I guess it just kinda bothers me a bit because I don’t understand why I’ve stopped loosing weight already. I haven’t been eating anything just pushing liquids.< /p>

Also my urine is still really dark and I at least try to drink close to the 64oz they say to. And didn’t know if that was normal. And I have found my tummy can’t tolerate crushed Vitamins it makes me REALLY REALLY sick. Has anyone else had this issue? Any tips to help take the vitamins? Or as to why my urine says I’m still dehydrated?

is anything you're drinking have food coloring,or have you been drinking grape juice, that gives you green poo, keep on with your liquids,bariatric patients fare better on Fluid drive just like some cars.!

It's the famous Week 3 or 4 stall. Everybody gets it. It's temporary for 1-2 weeks.

It’s been dark since surgery I was eating Jello pudding and mashed potatoes but I found it difficult to eat three times and drink 64oz and since I’m not really hungry I just drink all day. Usually only Water and my two Premier Protein shakes. And thank you both!! I was really worried I didn’t know this was normal thank goodness I was thinking I was doing something wrong lol. Does the stall reoccur frequently or is it just something that randomly comes and goes? I didn’t know if this app before surgery so I’m learning so much and just feel like I have so many questions that are kinda minor and don’t require calling my dr for. So I appreciate your help!!

I had surgery the same day as you did, and Ive been stalled for a few days. I've only lost half of what you have, though. I'm kinda frustrated with the slow weight loss, but Im just gonna follow my plan, and persevere!! Best wishes to you.

It looks like nearly everybody gets the Week 3 or 4 stall and it seems several of us have also gotten it around Week 16 as well. That's what I've learned so far from these forums. I've experienced both and am just getting out of a stall going on Week 18.

Briswife15 I think mine was mainly Water weight because I was on my period during the surgery. My mother had the surgery and said she didn’t loose most of the weight till the 3-6 month mark. But couldn’t remember if she had a stall but I’m guessing she did(her surgery was YEARS ago) I trust you’ll loose the weight you’re wanting to and look great!!
GradyCat shoot sounds like it’ll be something that happens frequently but at least now I know it’s normal and won’t over think it the next time it happens.

I had my surgery on April 1st and am really struggling with the Fluid intake and lack of weight loss. My dietician said that women struggle more with the weight loss because during our periods we retain Water and gain weight. I was told that drinking fluids is the most important part of the healing process. Something I've found helpful is getting a steamer from my local coffee stand. 16oz steamed milk with sugar free flavorings. The warm liquid goes down easier and it also relaxes your intestines.

I’ll have to try that!! I’ve never heard of that thank you 😊 I was going to try sports drinks like Powerade zero tomorrow because I was drinking some in the beginning and my urine wasn’t as dark so I’m hoping they will help to 😊

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
