Weight Gain - phase 2/puree



Recommended Posts

Is it normal to gain weight during the puree stage? I've been losing weight nicely but now it seems like I'm gaining. It is hard to get in all the Protein so I'm working on that. But just wanted to know if anyone else has had this experience.

How much are you gaining? It could just be Water weight fluctuations when you weigh.

It's 2-5 lbs. That's what i was thinking, it could be the timing that i weigh plus Water weight. But i just got a little nervous. I'm only a little over 2 weeks post op. So i guess its normal the body has to adjust.

What are you eating if you're having trouble getting Protein in? How much Fluid are you getting in daily also?

My last surgeon appointment for my one month checkup I only lost 4lbs and was pretty upset. Here the nurse practitioner said she told the surgeon to prepare us that the weight just doesn’t come off in weeks 3 and 4 and sometimes people gain a pound or two. She said it will really start in the coming weeks. So I would say concentrate on Protein and fluids and hang on for the ride. Good luck to you.

I'm getting most of my protein in its the extra fluids on top of the Protein I'm having a hard time with. But I'm doing better.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
