Annoyed with my weight loss



Recommended Posts

I was sleeved on 3/18/19 . Pre op 263 and now 233 or 234 or 235 or 236 every morning it’s in between . I’m following my diet plan as suggested by my nutritionist and surgeon but it’s getting annoying . I wake up one weight go to sleep higher . I’ve been trying to walk as much as possible . Am I doing something wrong ?

Maybe stop weighing every day. That way you won't get stressed with the up and down. I think you're doing great!!

Stay off the scale for about a month, if you are weighing in in the morning and at night u r going to drive yourself nuts!!!!

You've hit the Week 4 stall. Everybody gets it. It'll even out in a week or two and start losing again. Stay away from the scale, it's the enemy.

weight fluctuates all the time - even when we're losing. If you don't like seeing the fluctuations, just weigh yourself once a week - then you'll only see the trend (which will be down as long as you stick to your plan)

The average American desires instant gratification, but weight loss isn't a smooth sleek ride in a sports car, more like an old jalopy starting , stopping and trying to stay on course. I nearly stalled while on TPN, when it was DC'd I dropped 30 pounds, betcha I never am able to do that again! usually lose between 4-7 pounds a month at 7 months, just watch, since I bragged about it, the Longest Stall in Recorded History next could be mine, hope I didn't jinx myself.

I’m always a pound or so heavier in the evening than in the am. I would pick one time of day, preferably in the am before eating and drinking and after using the restroom . I may weigh at other times of the day but that’s the only one that in my mind REALLY counts. You are doing amazing btw!! 🥳

You are doing fantastic, be really proud of yourself. I was told to weigh first thing in the morning, after going to the loo and before a shower. I was weighing every day and getting disheartened so now it’s once a week with a realistic loss in my mind. Anything above that is a huge bonus. Well done again

Your weight is going to fluctuate - I know it is hard, but as others have said try to stay off of the scale. It can be such a curse and a blessing. I would suggest if you really want to see the numbers, aim for weekly instead of daily. It sounds to me like you are doing really well - embrace how far you have come so far! You are doing fantastic!

Weight normally fluctuates multiple times throughout the day. You will weigh the least in the morning and the most in the evening, generally. I was obsessive about the scale for several years so I have it figured out that I lose 2.2 pounds overnight from what my bedtime weight is, after a normal day of eating and that's almost every night. If you insist on weighing yourself daily, do it once, in the morning after you wake up and use the bathroom, wearing similar clothing each time. Then stay off the scale the rest of the day. I no longer jump on the scale so frequently anymore because it stressed me out.

Also congrats on the 30# loss! That's a huge loss for less than a month out from surgery! Please try to remember that your body is still healing so you'll have Fluid fluctuations that you won't have once you're healed. You're doing great!!
