I was at the same calorie range as you and my team said I need to be eating from 800 to 1200 calories a day. I started using Myfitnesspal.com and am now getting upwards of 600 calories a day. I haven't weighed yet but I did take my waist measurement today and have lost 5 inches off my waist, and I'll take that!

@Lynda486 I was just about to start a thread called 3 week stall and weight gain until I saw this thread.. I am experiencing the same. I have not lost for about a week in fact I've gained 2 lbs. I JUST got the surgery Oct 1. I haven't even logged the two lb weight gain because I want to deny it. It happened around day 21 of the surgey. I've added soft foods in and I think that's why. I'm hitting my Protein and fluid goals I just happen to be eating more real food. I never go past 350 calories a day and I get two 30 minutes walks in a day. I don't understand and I weigh several times a day and at the grocery store. I'm reading the responses and they give me some comfort but this is disheartening to have gone through this and now I've gained??? I did better pre-op...OMG..wondering what I did to myself and regretting this surgery. I'm not constipated at all everything is working on that front. Everyone says you lose the most the 1st six months of surgery and now I've stopped.

Please don’t do this to yourself. Don’t be disheartened. I’m a year post-surgery, and you WILL lose. You will have stalls occasionally and even some gains. It’s the same when people diet to lose weight. Keep doing all the right things and following your surgeon’s plan, and you’ll be losing again soon.

      Just cleaned out my fridge of old/unwanted food. Next is cabinets and pantry!

      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.
