Hey all im new to here. I would like to know if any of you had any bumps in the weight lost after surgery and how did you accomplished to keep going? So here is a little something about me i had surgery basically almost 2 months. March 21st was my surgery date. I went in weighting 232 pounds and i am down to 202 pounds. I been back on solids and i bren cooking my own meals and prepping and drinking lost of Water, i also workout about 3times aweek. I feel like im stuck on 202 for the past 2 weeks ina half. I do see a change in clothes and when i take pictures i see change as well, but its discouraging.

Any help? Would take some suggestions and what to try out to help.

Sorry hun, I'm just a little confused. You said you had your surgery 2 months ago but list the date as April 21? I'm guessing you meant March 21?

Either way, stalls can be normal. Make sure you are tracking your Protein and calorie intake. You are still early in your journey and this takes time. You still have months to go in your honeymoon phase so at this point I wouldn't stress the stall.

Stalls are a normal part of the process, even though we hate it and we may be doing everything right with exercise, Water, Protein, and calories. They still happen. Don't let it worry you.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
