Need help from sleeve vets



Recommended Posts

So I am a year and 2 months out and have noticed I keep losing and gaining the same 5lbs. Did anyone else experience this, how long will it last, and what does this mean.

Could it be linked to your cycle? Prior to having a hysterectomy my weight would fluctuate around 5 pounds a week before and the week of my period. Mostly due to bloating and Fluid retention, and a little bit cravings.

there were a couple of times during year 2 that I stalled for quite awhile and thought "this is it - my body is done", but then my weight loss would start up again - albeit slowly. So you may end up losing more...

I had my hysterectomy years before my sleeve but I've seen other posts where people have said they were going through the same thing, just curious because everything happens in phases with the sleeve.

How long have you been on the five-pound plateau? If it’s a stall, work your plan and wait it out. I still experience this at almost five years out. I reevaluated how I was working my plan. Some things to try

  • Log your food and make sure you are eating your weight loss calories and macros. You may need to adjust them. (I have to admit; it only takes me a few days off plan to see a weight bounce)
  • If you are eating the same foods over and over. Try switching your menu up.
  • If your exercise/activity has become a stale routine or your intensity is the same. It’s time to change it up.
  • Some people do intermittent fasting. Here is a link to the thread if you’re interested.

LITERALLY the store of my life: had surgery October 2017. Started at 5'8" 278...lost about 75 pounds the first year. Then for the last 6 months I have been gaining and losing the same 5 or so pounds.

i have gained and lost the same 2 lbs since Feb. (147-149 up and down weekly)

i take it to mean that my body is happy right where it is and my calorie intake is perfect for maintenance.

Since i am well below doctors weight goal i am doing nothing about it.

If you still need or want more weight loss you will have to change up what you are doing.

are you tracking everything you eat. You cant control what you don't measure.

adjust your workout to increase resistance training. more muscle equals higher metabolism

Are you still eating clean (no sugars no, processed carbs) or have you slipped back toward quick easy food found in the middle of the store.

Shop the 3 walls of your store and stay out of the middle where everything is highly processed.

No One has every seen a box of anything growing in a field. Keep your food as close as you can to the way it comes out of the field.

And finally if you are not losing weight you need to stay away from fruit. Sorry but it is sugar and the very thing animals gorge themselves on to get fat every summer.

All of the above is my opinion only and you are free to take it or leave it.

What worked for me may not work for you so you will have to find your own path. i wish you luck and don't give up there is a path for you just keep working at it.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
