If you have a blender or nutribullet something like that, try a Protein Shake blended with ice. I switch it up and add my collagen, and a little extra Protein Powder in with my Protein shake. I also mix in fruit or frozen fruit in as well. I also do that with my crystal light drinks too it makes it easier for me. It seems so much easier on my system. I think I still drink too fast even though it is much slower so it really helps.

I just had my 3 month appt. My start weight was 203 my surgery 7-8-19 was 193 I am currently 169. I was concerned I didn’t lose enough but he said I am right on track and it has a lot of factors. The start amount has a lot to do with how quickly the weight comes off. My surgeon asked me if I would have done this again.., absolutely! I finally feel normal and not hungry all the time. I have more energy, sleep less and went down sizes. Such a big difference. Can’t wait till more comes off!

Congrats to you!!!! How many sizes did you come down? I was wondering how much weight a person would have to lose per pants size....

When giving away my clothes I had 1 or 2 dress pants in an 18. Some 16, a ton of 14. The 12’s I had are too loose and fall down. Now I have 2 pair of jeans that fit they are size 11. I carried the bulk of my weight in my belly. I lost a bunch in my legs, face, butt, arms, lost a bunch in my belly but still carry it there. So hoping that comes off. The surgeon said it will. I guess it depends where you carry your weight. From shirts I was xl to 2x ladies top. (Not woman’s) depending on the shirt. Now a large and I had on a medium shirt the other day. So that all depends on the cut. My husband loves it he keeps rubbing and squeezing me can’t believe how small I got. Yet still have 30 to go. I was off my blood pressure meds 1 week after surgery. That was amazing. Can’t wait to see my A1c.

Don’t worry, it is pretty common sometimes.

I had my surgery 2/6/19 and probably during week 2, I logged just 810 calories.... FOR THE ENTIRE WEEK... I remember being panicked and emailing my NUT 2-3 times with my food logs (or lack thereof) and she reassured me that many people have this issue.
8 months later I’m at GW and I don’t have any obvious deficiencies

I lost 23 pounds in the first 12 days, then lost 2 more pounds over the next 24 days.
It freaked me out, but at the end of the day I had lost 25 pounds in 5 weeks which is absolutely in the normal range.
The first couple of months are super weird and our bodies are really confused and the scale will seem bipolar.

Ride it out.
Get in Water and Protein and it will even out.
Everyone will have a slightly different journey.

I hate that I'm losing so slowly. It's really discouraging.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
