Am I losing weight too fast?



Recommended Posts

It has only been six weeks and I'm down 38 pounds which is about 40% to goal. I get plenty of Protein in every day and am close to expected on fluids (not counting protein shakes). In lab tests last week all of my numbers are within normal ranges except of glucose which is only 78 and below the bottom threshold of normal. I've been having some dizzy spells from, what I would guess is hypoglycemia. I average 500-600 calories per day and around 25 carbs. I get full very fast and just can't eat any more after I get my protein in.

Any thoughts or ideas? Anyone else in this boat?

I am also - You may want to consider a Supplement like a MRE or Find one of the legends here who knows how to slow it down - You calories are low so are mine. I just started upping the calories with the MRE powder for fuel and energy, To early to tell if it is going to work or not -

As a male i guess we shred it faster so trying a whole new approach

You and I are running pretty much dead on. You might be a little light due to some dehydration. Make sure you get a minimum of 64 oz liquid per day.

i am down exactally 37lbs today from day after surgery, but I calculated 5lbs of iv drip liquid, so I took my start weight at 265 on the calculator vs 270.

Hey Fatboyslim1...we were sleeved the same day...so we're running neck and neck. Let's keep in touch. I know that I could be getting more fluids in...but I think it's the blood sugar levels.

Dizzy spells could also be low blood pressure. Or early on post WLS I was low on B12 and that make me feel tired and weak.

      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. 😁

        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.
