I had my lapband removed and sleeve done on October 1st and I haven't lost much weight. My doctor told me that statistically lapband patients have a hard time dropping weight faster than someone who only had sleeve surgery. I'm getting very discouraged and frustrated because I'm not sure if it was even worth it! Help! I don't know what to eat or even if I'm eating enough and then when I do eat I feel like I'm eating too much.

Your doctor should have given you an eating plan. If he didn't, you may want to visit a dietician and he/she can help you. Or if you'd rather not, there are some good books about eating after bariatric surgery. Many of them can be loaded into a Kindle, if you have something like that. There's also a lot if free info on the internet if you google "eating after bariatric surgery". Good luck!

Hi ❤ perhaps you could:

*Try to locate all the information that was provided to you prior to surgery and go through it again to see if you missed anything

*Attend your follow up visits with surgeon and nutritionist (if offered or schedule one ASAP) to discuss your concerns, get tips and find out how the professionals think you are doing

And some tips for when the scale does not reflect your efforts❤:

*Compare beginning weight (when you decided to start the process) to current weight (today) -there will be a difference even if small... Think of this as an amount gone FOREVER

*Take pictures and measurements as a visual reminder of progress- who doesn't love before and after transformation stories? Create your own!

*Use a food/water tracking app to measure and log food precisely for a while - stay on track!

*Only weigh yourself if it does not negatively impact you, other wise wait until you see your Doctor (dont stress over the scale- there are other indicators of progress and success)

* Generally it takes about a year to see those amazing completely transformative results so you have some time

Good Luck 💚

Have you checked in with your doctor's nutritionist to establish an eating plan and goals?

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
