Hello I have my surgery on January 6, 2020 and I just got a question in the beginning I wasn’t able to get any of the Protein Shakes or mixes of any kind down I would throw it all up , so I was fast forward to more softer foods so I can get Protein out of what I eat as of right now I am 20 days out from surgery and I haven’t lost any weight I gained is there any reason for that ?
Surgery wait 230 , four days later 237 , on 14 January I went down to 221 , A week later I went to see my nutritionist for the first time since surgery and I went back up to 229 now I have also had a hernia repair at the same time as my surgery right after surgery for four days I wasn’t hungry now I’m constantly hungry and I’m getting approximately 50 to 60 g of protein a day

Sounds like you may be consuming too many carbs/sugar..?

What do you eat each day?

Breakfast consists of a half scrambled egg then I start my Water consumption lunch tuna salad more water consumption I sometimes do pick in between it’ll be a string cheeseOr sugarless applesauce or sugar-free popsicle . dinner it will be grilled chicken if I have anything left in my stomach room for a little bit of mashed potatoes a spoonful of peanut butter
More water consumption maybe I have to get more water in the day

im on soft food stage right now

That all seems fine.. Do you put dressing on sauces on salad or chicken?

Doesn't look like you're getting much Protein?

Okay well I'm confused how you can't be losing anything?

I personally have about double that amount of Protein though and less carbs; like Keto without the fat...

That’s what I’m saying I’m confused too I talk to my nutritionist and she said she’s not worried about it but I am now granite before my surgery before my 10 day pre-op diet I was 271 now 228 that is a considerable weight loss but now that I had the surgery I’m 20 days past my surgery and I am not losing any I gained I’m starting to wonder whether he did the operation right or not

From your screenshot it says you consumed 300+ calories for breakfast...

What was your total calories for the entire day? (I'm unsure if the 668 shown for calories is total consumed? Or total remaining?)

This thread is a little confusing because two different posters have posted two different problems. I'm responding to the original posters here:

OP - how long have you been stuck at 217? If it's just a week or two, you're in a stall. If you're talking a month or more, then you're eating enough calories to throw you into maintenance.

if it's been just a couple of weeks, just keep sticking to your plan and your weight will eventually start dropping again. If it's been more than a month, then try cutting your calories by about 100 per day. If after a couple of week you're still not losing, cut by another 100 and see what happens. Rinse and repeat until the weight loss starts up again.

as for the hunger - yes, it does eventually return for most of us, unfortunately - and things get more challenging after that 😞

Good point @catwoman7...didn't realize there were two different posters probs on here!

Oopsies

@msilva_777: what @catwoman7 said. Also it would help others troubleshoot if you updated your profile with your stats and provide a couple day's worth of data of what exactly you eat/drink in a day.

@MissPennyP : see above...

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
