I'm 4 weeks out today and have been at 23lbs down for the last week or so, really fluctuating with a pound less. I hate how this messes with my head lol like you feel like it's not enough but realistically it's more than I would've done on my own lol I keep trying to tell myself this.




I do need to work on getting more Water in, I've gotten a lot better at getting my Protein in but I don't think I'm getting enough calories either.




I want to start working out. I bought some weights and have an elliptical..just gotta use it lol








edit to add: What are you guys eating at the stages you're in? How may calories? I'm on my 2nd week of purees; I've had scrambled eggs, tuna, refried Beans and homemade guacamole so far. I don't have an actual schedule to follow on how I eat though. I "feel" hungry often but get full so fast. I see my dietician for the 1st time post op on February 11th.


You’re doing amazing I am 2 weeks out and 9.8 pounds down as of today. I started purée today! I made egg salad and I am making taco Soup. They will both last me all week. I will be doing refried Beans and cheese, ricotta bake, and chicken salad next week.

Im so proud of everyone! You all are truly doing amazing! I can’t thank each and every one of you enough for being here and helping me. I’m 4 weeks PO. Two maybe three bites I’m full. I try to eat 3 times a day, sometimes it don’t happen though. I’m eating stuff like vegan meat balls, soft veggies, tofu, avocado, PB2. I’m doing real good with fluids and Protein Drinks. I’m maintaining minimum 60g of Protein, and almost reached 85oz of Fluids. Whoot whoot!!

Sleeved 12/13 went from 228lbs to 212lbs really quick and haven't moved since

You have lost a lot of weight very quickly, your body may need time to just catch up. How much Protein, calories and Water do you get every day? I was sleeved on the 12th so we are neck and neck. Keep up the good work!

Thank you! Nice you get to start purees! This is my 2nd week of purees but I didn't get to start them until I was 3 weeks out. Taco Soup sounds good!!

I had the sleeve on 12/17 and I am down 22 pounds. I have definitely stalled though. I was losing a pound a day but I have not lost anything in about 5 days. I am hoping the weight loss will start back up again. Any thoughts would be helpful. I am on soft foods. I do have a complication of having cancer as well. I am on an oral chemo pill for two weeks and then off for one week. I just finished my first cancer pill cycle post-surgery. Things were fine for the first week and a half but I have been feeling awful for the last 5 days. The thought of food makes me want to throw up, but I know I have to eat. So, I am having a hard time with this new cancer pill wrinkle thrown in. I am hoping I will eventually get used to everything.

Hi Everyone,

Great to hear that I'm not alone! I was sleeved on 12/30/19. I have been down almost 25 pounds since last Thursday. I started puree stage then and since, then the scale has gone up a little then down. I know that my body is trying to adjust I'm sure. I am eating puree 3x a day, about 2 oz of cottage cheese with a little bit of peach puree, scrambled egg, chicken, a little spinach puree, and light Soup. I am really struggling to getting more than 48 oz of Water. Very tired of Protein Shakes, ugh and a wee bit of nausea now and again. Been walking around the block, doing light arm and leg exercises. My next Dr appt is in 3 months! He told me to start on regular food at week 4, no more puree. I eat slow and sometimes can feel it, other times I don't feel restriction at all, depending on the food. I'm so worried about stretching out my pouch! I am averaging about 500-600 calories per day.

Wow! You all are doing so good! I was sleeved 12/24 and am only down 9 pounds since surgery. I'm constantly nauseous and am beginning to think it's the Vitamins we're required to take because I was breezing through until I started those week 3. I cannot stand to be nauseous!!! I am in phase 3 of the post-op diet which is the soft food stage. I am able to eat about 1.5 ounces of tuna or egg but chicken makes me gag the minute I smell it. Hearing everyone else's results makes me think I'm not doing something right :(

I hated the chewable vitamins, after the first week I bought the vitamin patches off of this site and so far so good! Consider trying them, I haven’t felt nauseous using them so far

I didn't lose any weight pre-op though, so that's probably why those first 24 pounds came off so quick. I'm now at the point where I would get while dieting and could never get past. I'm hoping to lose about 5 more by the end of the month fingers crossed. I have heard that the more we need to lose the faster it goes off.

If it makes you feel better I was down 14 lbs the first week but only 2 lbs in week two. I just keep reminding myself that if I stick to the plan the pounds will drop off eventually.

I wish I could but I'm allergic to adhesive. The Patches would literally burn my skin off. I may try one without the extra Iron and see if I can tolerate that. Some is better than none I would think

      I am   finishing up all I have to do to have the Loop Duodenal Switch. I have had a Sleeve which didn't work out well for me and I gained some weight back. My Dr. Suggested the Loop. So only thing I have left now is hearing back from my Bariatric Dr. With an appt. But I would love the be able to talk to some people who have had/going to have/going through process of the Loop Duodenal Switch. Forums? Support Groups?
      Thank You

        Just keep in high spirits. I'm 9 weeks post op and I'm glad I did it. Do you have a surgery date?

      It's been so long since I came here and I'm disappointed in myself for that, it's such a wonderful forum with amazing people. 
      But I'm back with exciting news: I had my surgery in August of 2019, and I met my goal of 180 by the fall of 2020! And even better: as of today I've far surpassed my initial goal and am now at 156lbs!
      In hindsight, I made the goal of 180 never dreaming I would be able to go below that, and yet, in the back of my mind I always knew that somewhere in the 150s would be the absolute ideal for me, I just never thought that would be a possibility, even with this surgery. So this is a dream come true for me!
      The mind is a very powerful machine, and I guess my mind clearly said "we're not done here" when I got to 180. I didn't even try to get below it, to be perfectly honest - it took no effort on my part, the weight just kept (keeps?) melting off of me. 
      That sounds like the worst kind of humblebrag, almost cringe-level - but I truly don't mean it that way. It's just that I'm just completely gobsmacked! I never in a million years expected this to happen!
      More good news: I started exercising with a program I'm obsessed with called Essentrics last October - heck, I've only missed a handful of days since I started. I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd be so excited about working out, that it would be the highlight of my day, even. But it is! I always haaaated exercise! But this program is downright enjoyable and I always feel something akin to euphoria at the end of my workouts. That's not an exaggeration. It's possible that doing this is why I kept losing weight, but I'm not sure, because it's not cardio-heavy at all...it's more like just stretching and moving your body, I guess kinda like a more "active" form of yoga, but NOT yoga, it's hard to describe honestly. Nothing fancy, it just really feels good for my body, I can't say enough about it. I can't imagine it burns that many calories since there is very little cardio involved, but I don't know because I don't do math and that's that lol.
      But now I have a new goal, and it's a big one: get back to a nutritious, healthy diet (maintenance I mean, not active weight loss). I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I have to be brutally honest with myself, and this is the ideal place to do it - the fact is, my diet SUCKS. I haven't even tried to eat healthily for quite awhile now. I'm so ashamed of myself just typing that out, but I need to face it and admit it to myself before I can fix it.
      I haven't participated on this forum for way too long, and that was a mistake. This forum is amazing and filled with such great people who always inspired me so much!
      So now I'm back because, even though I'm at my goal, the fact is, this is a lifelong journey - it's not just the weight loss part, it's so much more than that. I need help getting my diet back on track. I need the inspiration and excellent advice I always found here. Just because I'm at goal doesn't mean I'm done - far from it.
      So although I'm embarrassed that my diet (currently!) sucks, I can at least give myself credit for finally admitting it and setting my intention to change that. Being at goal weight does NOT mean I'm healthy. It's great that I'm exercising, but if I'm not giving my body the nutrition it needs, then I'm only hurting myself. If I took the giant step of having bariatric surgery, I owe it to myself to follow through with the WHY I did it - which was to become healthy again - and that is sooo much more than a number on the scale.
      I'm ready to make the changes necessary to get myself into the healthiest state possible. I won't be perfect, nobody is, but it's time for me to truly commit to giving my body the healthy nutrition it deserves as best as I can. I don't know where to start though, it's like I need an entire education about it. But I'm ready and willing to learn.
      I'm so happy to be back here because I know that inspiration is found everywhere here in this forum.
