Had RNY revision 8/23 and went from 408lbs to 344 in 2 weeks. Problem is, have not lost any since then. Getting discouraged. Tired of people asking how much you lost, and answering "nothin". What am I doing wrong?

Nothing. You are at the stall phase. If you recall the first time around, your body went through it. That's quite a bit of weight at one time and your body has to adjust. Keep following your doctor's orders. That is HUGE!!!!!! You have lost 63 pounds in two weeks and you're discouraged?????[emoji44][emoji848] Don't you think you should be celebrating the victory?????[emoji323][emoji322] Congratulations and keep going. You can do this. [emoji846][emoji1474]

How often do you weigh? Many people weigh daily and get discouraged when they don't see the scale moving. I would weigh weekly instead.

Those plateaus are so frustrating!!

hey dude

people at a heavier starting weight tend to loose a lot of weight at the beginning

of their journey, will slow down a little as time passes, but will do great

it's mind boggling to me that you or anyone can loose 64 lbs in 2 weeks

not sure about that - but..... ok, that's great!!!

continued good luck, health and happiness☺️

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
