I am 9 weeks post op and down 30lbs. Not the fastest weight loss but I’m happy with it. I haven’t gained any since starting, just a steady loss. I can pretty much eat anything.. haven’t tried much salad or of course steak. Had a super long 2-3 week stall and the pounds are coming off again. I think once you’re healed it starts coming back off?? Anyone else feel that?? I’m just going off what I’ve read on here and what I’m experiencing. I am feeling better as the weeks go on. More confident, which has been a struggle.

I'm almost 7 weeks out and like you I haven't had any issues with any foods so far (I had some raw spinach today after my Protein and it went down fine). I haven't had red meat yet so no clue how that will go. I also had a long stall (3.5 weeks) which seems to have broken. During that I had days where I went up and days where I went down so I finally stopped weighing daily.. I thought I could handle it but apparently not so much :) Overall I am feeling good, exercising daily and just following the plan.

Yeah, same here. I stayed at the same weight maybe a few ounces different during the stall. I hope I’m finally past that! I think we see the first 15-20 come off so fast it’s like we expect that to continue lol. Weighing daily is def a struggle lol. I’ve taken days off from weighing and it seems that’s when I drop a pound or two lol

So encouraging to hear. I am only a week out, so I'm so curious about what is coming. Do you find you just naturally are stopping at about a cup of food? Also, did your doctor's office tell you to weigh every day?

Congratulations and good luck!

I have learned to stop at about 3/4 cup of food. A cup is too much at this point. And no, my doctor's office didn't have anything to say about weighing every day. My opinion is it's probably not the best idea. I take days off from weighing and feel a lot better than weighing and seeing the scale not move lol

I try to remind myself to only weigh in every week (every Monday) so I don't get too obsessed with numbers. I'm five weeks post op and seeing a huge difference in my clothing size (I don't see it in the mirror or anything, but photos are showing me that I HAVE indeed made a dent).

I'm eating good Protein now, too. I went three weeks without food because my gallbladder tried to murder me and stalled out during that, but I'm back to actually losing. :D

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

      4. BayougirlMrsS

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      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!!!
