Can't stop losing weight



Recommended Posts

I had my gastric bypass surgery on June the 21st 2018. My starting weight was 229 pounds and my current weight is 115 pounds. I never Intended to Lose this much weight.

I'm not sure on how to make the weight loss stop. I'm am eating more calories and am trying to eat as much as I can. Are there any suggestions on how I can gain any weight? Or at least make this weight loss stop? I can't afford to lose any more.

Thanks so much!!

All meats, potatoes, all veggies.

Fruits, breads, and bow some sweets. Can't handle many sweets and don't do fried foods well.

Have you called your dietician? What is on your maintenance food plan? How many calories are you currently getting in?

You’re not alone having difficulty in changing over to maintenance and figuring out what calories/macros slow stop weight loss. The link below may help.

The maintenance thread.

I have just run your numbers through a BMI calc ( yes I know some people hate them) and according to that your BMI is 21.1 which is still well within the healthy range.Therefore I wouldn’t stress too much at this point.

I would suggest adding back in healthy fats. Things likes nuts, seeds and avocados. Also use higher fat versions of dairy.

I often think that people worry that they are too skinny when they are in fact healthy because these days we are more used to seeing overweight people .

This is true. I checked also. Thing is i am so small. I have no boobs left! I have had to buy new cloths time after time and yes i do shop at Goodwill and consignment shops to save money.

People see me and ask me if I am sick even though I don't think I look sick at all.

I have had bloodwork done and all is well.

My sugar has been known to drop out of nowhere though.

Maybe i am worrying for nothing but I really don't wanna lose a pond more.

BTW I am in the same sort of position as you but I figure it will stop at some point. My loss is very slow now, a couple of 100grams every month or so. The fear is that if I add in too much food I will start regaining which I don't really want to do.

Embrace your new skinny body :) of course it will be a shock to some ppl who are used to seeing you overweight...

There's always compromise in life so you're healthy and skinny but you've lost some curves...

I'm also struggling a bit with this. I have added healthy carbs, more nuts and seeds, but I can't tolerate higher fat levels. I already know I am not absorbing fats well, from the nature of my stools, and any more just causes upset. I am doing a bit more Protein Shakes, but am eating beyond comfort, which I do not like at all.

I am the same. My stomach is very finicky. I thought about adding extra Protein Shakes. It seems when I try to eat more I tend to get so tired. It seems to drain my energy if that makes sense.

I don't mean to seem like I'm complaining. I never want to go back to my old unhealthy self. Just don't want to be too skinny.

Lol.....at one time I would never imagine myself saying such things🤪

Give your body time to correct itself. Losing 112 pounds sounds about right to me. Rejoice.

I've lost over 130 pounds since June of 2018. We all lose at different rates. I still suffer from body dysphoria, though. Still see a fat person. Still shop for a fat person. Still wear large, baggy dresses that a fat person might wear. How about you?

      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".
