Should I be worried or glad about really rapid weight loss?



Recommended Posts

I hate to ask this question because it seems so crazy, but...I am 6 months post gastric bypass and had been losing at what seemed a "normal" rate. Then I upped my calories to 1000 to 1100 a day and now I'm losing really fast. I've lost over 8 pounds in a week. I know that mathematically it is impossible to burn 3500 calories a day, so how and why am I losing weight so fast?? Should I be worried, or enjoy it?

Every time I've had a stall I've broken it by increasing my calories. If you feel healthy, I'd enjoy it! Good luck.

I think that's fantastic and counterintutitive. Let me ask, did you increase your calories and your Protein or just your calories?

Just calories. Protein has stayed the same. Added in avocado as a healthy fat, and a few more carbs.

So much has to do with Fluid shifts, related to glycogen in the muscles, salt intake, etc. Don't be worried if you gain a few next week - just fluid rebalancing. Your overall weight loss seems fine, so keep up the good work!

Good to hear everybody's input on this. I'm 6 months post-op and my weight loss has jolted to a halt!!! I'm doing everything I can to make sure that I'm doing everything according to plan--- Water, Protein, food tracking, and exercise.

Even though I know it's irrational to think that my weight loss is just going to stop completely at this point, I'm totally scared that I won't lose any more weight. Trusting the process and myself, but it's hard!!

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
