Recommended Posts

none at all or just this week? If the latter, you're having the dreaded "three week stall" that most of us have...

Sooo I’m 3 weeks post opp and no weight loss ... what’s the deal?! It’s this a real thing? Please tell me !

The three week stall is a real thing. Perhaps your holding onto Water weight? have you not lost anything?

Id be looking closely at every single thing you put in your body....

Your intake would be so low this early it's almost impossible to not lose weight....?

Not going to repeat above but Something is not balanced - Either you are holding Water or you are taking in to many calories?

Move a little more and change up your diet to break this little stall - I think you will find all of a sudden pounds are going to start falling off

So at my “2 week “follow up I was down ten pounds from my pre-op class 286... to then 274... now another week later according to my scale at home ... and I check it everyday habitually... I have been holding fast at 270 even. 1 I should clarify .... I’m not losing anything more than that . I read a lot of posts and some folks have lost like 40 pounds by now

40 lbs in three weeks? No - that would be extremely rare. The average WLS patient loses about 15-25 lbs in the first month. There are some exceptions, but again, those are rare. People that lose that much weight the first month are usually people who start off at something like 500+ lbs - like the people on "My 600 lb Life"

P.S. I started off at over 300 lbs and lost 16 lbs the first month, if that gives you any idea.

My average weight loss is 14 a month. My neighbor saw me for the first time yesterday and said Wow, you have lost a lot of weight, you look great! That made me feel great!

Everybody stalls in Week 3 or 4. It's normal. Don't sweat it. Don't be in a hurry, you just had the surgery. It'll happen.

      My life is WONDERFUL
      JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      SO HAPPY I GOT THE SLEEVE!
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.
      I wish there was MORE than WORDS to express to you just how wonderful I feel!

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

        Congratulations on 32 pounds! That is great! Are you still on restricted foods? What are you eating now?
