3-Month Post-Op Appt - (Gastric Sleeve)



Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if I'm on track or if I'm being too hard on myself so I'm fishing for other people's results I guess you could say. I had VSG on 2/20/2019. I was 273 that morning at the hospital but came home at 279 from fluids (I suppose since it surely wasn't from eating :D). Today I am 231. There have been several days of no movement on the scale, which discourages me because I know I'm not eating much so it's frustrating! I have my 3-month post-op appt. on Monday and am hoping to see 229, which would be 44 pounds according to their scales since 2/20/2019. Granted, I've never lost 44 pounds in 3 months so I'm pleased but I'm just curious.

I had VSG on Feb 6th and have lost 37 lbs, which is slow compared to a lot of others on this forum but as long as the scale is going in the right direction, then I'm ok with it :) Plus it gives my skin a chance to catch up with me (or so I hope!)

I have lots of days the scale doesn't move, and then suddenly it'll drop a pound. While I weigh myself daily I try not to tally the amount lost until the end of the week, which I think has helped with not driving myself crazy

Focus on that!

Anyone else's results are irrelevant! :)

You can't compare yourself to others because they start at different weights, have different metabolisms, etc. You're doing GREAT, you're ROCKING IT!

Keep it up! Everyone is different. It takes time. Make sure your tricking your body too. Park far from work and home every other day if you can. Small things to keep you active helps keep your body's clock guessing. It helps.

Thank you for the suggestions and encouragement. P.S. My husband is a meat cutter/butcher as well :)
