I had my bypass surgery 04/25/2019. It was one of the happiest and best decisions made. My depression comes from the weight loss I started at 308. and now 285. I walk everyday I work out and eat what it says in my booklet. My weight is not moving, is this normal?

Did you get the sleeve or RNY??

I had sleeve 2 5 yrs ago and am waiting for approval from the insurance company for RNY revision surgery due to reflux.

I have heard several people who had RNY revision surgery have an early stall but some are not getting enough calories in as well.

Hopefully you will start losing again soon.

If you're concerned about it call your Nutritionist and ask questions about your food intake and fluids. They may have suggestions for you.

Good luck,

Allie in SC

Thanks so much. The nutritionist has given me a book I follow everyday. I work out drink Water, I don't cheat, its frustrating. I will continue to work hard.

Torie, It's early and your weight loss so far is excellent. I know firsthand how you feel. I want it to be faster and I compare myself to other people. I can eat more now and it's scary, but my weight is slowly going down.

I know that it will keep going down for you as well. Have faith and give it time. Let us know how you do!

My best to you💕

almost everyone, sleeve or bypass, has their first stall within the first month after surgery. We call it "the three week stall" because it usually happens during week 3, but not always. Mine was weeks 2 and 3. Lost nothing. Then during week 4, I dropped like 6-8 lbs practically overnight. Do a search on the three week stall and you'll find HUNDREDS of posts on it. Just stick to your program and the stall will break. I promise.

There's an infamous Week 4 stall that nearly everybody goes through. It's normal. No worries. Let the stalls happen and the weight will get moving afterward. Your body just went through a major trauma. It's trying to catch up.

You’ve lost 23 lbs in less than a month. This isn’t an issue with WLS, it’s an issue of having unrealistic expectations

This cannot be said enough. I don't know why so many expect to drop all their weight in the first month postop.

I concur, not only is it unrealistic, it's unhealthy. The body has gone through a serious surgery and a major change... Give it GRACE! It will regulate and adjust accordingly. This process is NEVER just all about losing the weight or how rapidly. It is an external and internal transformation to be savored and appreciated...

We all are on our own path , some of us travel faster, some at a slower rate. What is important is you are traveli,g at a Tori Faye rate whole I travel at a Frustr8 pace, none of us hit our milestones at exactly the same time. Don't be sad for all the things you aren't achieving yet, be proud of yourself for how far you have come!
I have a constant battle with the Cloudy Monster of Depression, I have hung myself up with all the " "Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda", reliving the sorrows of yesterday sucks the Joy right out of Today. Keep safe on your path, Tori Faye, you will make it to future victory as I will also!😝

I think a lot of people's expectations are based on "My 600 lb Life" . Yea, at that starting weight, you're going to drop a crap ton of weight the first month. But for the average WLS patient, who starts off at 200-400 lbs, no.

        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.
