So surgery was 2/26 so officially 8 weeks out. I started at 345 and am now 305.




Hoping to get under 300 by 4/26 but don't think it'll be possible.


I can relate. I was 308 the day of surgery and I’m at 288 today. 20 lbs in about 6 weeks, and I’ve been stalled for almost 4 weeks with no weight loss. I’m baffled. I don’t know if I should up my calories or lower my calories. I’m getting about 700cals a day and meeting Protein goals most of the time. However, I don’t always get in all my fluids, so maybe that’s why?

So I didn't make my goal. Was 303 this morning.

I think your calories are fine. I probably take in a little less that that probably 500. But that's only because I just don't feel like eating. I just make sure I get 60oz of fluids and at least 70g Protein.

Well, I added nearly 1 litre of extra Water intake a day since Tuesday, and that seems to have gotten things moving again. I’ve lost 3 lbs since then! So excited after about a month long stall!

So my surgery was 2/25. I started on the day of surgery at 345. I am now down to 306. I feel a little discouraged almost 10 weeks in and having lost only about 40lbs. I am slowly, SLOWWWLLLYY losing weight. I do not feel very thirsty ever, and initally I was not very hungry. But now I do get hungry.

I don't even feel that much different.

Its good progress. I wouldn't worry too much I'm not. My surgery was 2/26 @ the same 345 and I've only lost 45 and I'm a guy. Weighed in today at 299.7 so officially in the twos.

I’m almost 90 days since surgery five days away. Weight loss has been going with a few stalls here and there. Been outside doing something weather permitting and using the treadmill when rains or lifting high reps low weight. I’m only doing about 480 to 600 calories a day. I really like the Protein Shakes That’s mainly what I consume daily as not very hungry. Maybe I will have one meal and 2 shakes a day or 3 shakes and a snack, carrots or almonds in a day.Always make Protein and Water I sweat through all of my clothing everyday make sure I have t shirt and sweatshirt on.
One of my big goals is to be 250 or lighter by Mid June for my son’s graduation.

Everyone keep working stay focused and safe! We will all succeed

40 pounds is actually pretty good. My surgery was on 2/19 and I have lost only 25 pounds.I know it is discouraging but be patient. You are learning a better way to eat a slow weight is healthier. I concentrate how I am feeling rather the numbers.

My goodness, I would be absolutely thrilled with a 40 pound loss in that timeframe. My loss, in comparison is 18 pounds in the same timeframe and I am taking in 700-800 calories daily.

Hello everyone! Hope you all are staying healthy and safe! I weigh on Fridays, so this is my 3 month mark. I am down 30 pounds in the 3 months since surgery, 40 including the 3 week pre-op weight loss. Not very fast, and this week was barely a pound, but I am happy with it. I have really been increasing movement and I am walking between 4 and 5 miles per day, spread out over the day. I am experimenting with food, and am eating 700 to 850 calories per day. My Protein intake is good, and I fight to get the Water in! Downside....my hair is soooo thin, and I am noticing lots of saggy upper arm skin. Hope everyone is hanging in!

Hi Lisa from Massachusetts, My surgery was 2/28. I’m in the same boat as you. I’m weighing in at 195. Saggy arms and slowly losing. I have 50 more pounds to lose and it seems it will take forever.

I had my surgery March 9th, then all the lockdown started. The surgeon did a brief tele conf, a couple of times. Was really abrupt. The office was closed to questions. I had shakes and Soups for the first two weeks. The first month the scale hadn’t moved, except one day to go up two pounds, that stayed for three weeks. Very frustrating, to say the least. I got a free app for my phone, called ProTracker. Counts calories and nutrients. I found when I went to 1100 calories, things started moving. I eat very small portions of Greek yogurt, chicken, lean pork chop, tuna, garden meatballs, for main meals. Supplement with small fruit portion, or the bariatric bars and Snacks. Absolutely no support. Need someone to tell me I’m doing this right.

Wow! That's rough to not have the scale move for the first month. How much have you lost in the second month? Where did you start?

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
