I am going to have to try upping my Water. Getting enough water has been my biggest challenge. I just don’t want it for some reason. I was 270 pre surgery 260 day of surgery (feb 26) and now I am 232lbs. I think I’m pretty close to where everyone else is at this point. I did think it would be faster though. 😐 Oh well starting to fit into some stuff that I haven’t worn in a while.

Hey Shanto :)

I struggle so much with water too. Weird that diluted juice or diet cordial seems to go down easier......I have only been managing 150 - 250 cals a day so dietitian is fine with it just for the calories. I wonder if less water slows weight loss? I am officially 12 weeks today and am down 71 pounds. I have had a bit of a rough run since surgery, but really feel like I am turning a corner.

I am thinking I will need to start looking at calories and macros soon when I start to be able to eat more. I am lucky to get any Protein in a day, but really it is only early days and if my body has gotten through the last 12 weeks ok, then I'm sure I will get there in the end! Has anyone else started looking into this kind of thing yet or still in the healing phase?

All the best February Guys and Gals :)

Between the presurgical loss, and what I’ve eked out about 34 pounds. I am disappointed, but at least I no longer binge and have stupid cravings. I have such a long way to go, I’m fighting the blues, all the time. I’ve developed some heart beat issues since the surgery. The surgeon is not good about questions, so I’m seeing a cardiologist. I’m not moving much, because the meds are still not kicking in.

Had gastric sleeve surgery 2/17/20. I’m down 33 lbs since surgery, lost 20 lbs before surgery so I’m pretty happy. I’ve been working from home since mid March and am finding that walking twice a day has been really good for my weight loss and mental health. I just found this forum and am finding a lot of good information and encouragement here.

How’s my February peeps doing? My weight loss has been decent. I seem to stall every 3 to 4 weeks but I tell myself that my body is readjusting. I weight once a week and finally hit onederland. I found that increasing my Water intake helps speed up weight loss.

That’s fantastic!! I was so excited when I hit the 190s- I’m about the same as you. I get real slow loss and then it speeds up sometimes. It took forever it feels like to get under 200 and once I did I sped through the 190s. I don’t get cravings anymore but I definitely get hungry which has occurred for awhile now. I’m always trying to get my liquids even if I’m not thirsty but the struggle is real! I love AdvoCare Spark fruit punch- they make products for weight loss and athletes. I just love their drink mix!! Keep going, it’s a marathon for sure!! I hope by the end of the year to see 150s (ish)?!

You’re doing so well. I hope I speed through 190s. Do you except use? I agree, the struggle is real. I feel hunger too and have been for a couple months now. I just ignore it or drink Water. Do you use the mix in the canister or the packets?

I struggle to get all my Water in too. I will lose a couple of pounds and then stay the same for a couple of weeks. Weight loss has definitely slowed. I will try getting in more water though if y’all think it helps!

Except use? Was that autocorrect for exercise? Lol - if that’s the case yeah I do spin classes on my peloton and then strength training afterwards 3 to 4x a week. I also walk several days a week. I will say though my 180s is sloooow going but my NUT says I’m doing fine and my weight hasn’t stalled technically. Most of my trouble is around that time of the month... really sabotages me but I also think not having kids yet and the changes that come with that give me an edge too. I had no health issues going into the surgery either.

I haven’t seen any posts in a while. I think it was such a terrible shame that just as I recovered from surgery covid took over our lives and I am not on program as much as I would have hoped. I have lost 32 pounds which is 32 more pounds than I have lost in 7 or so years so I’m not at a total loss. I have 45 more pounds to go. I am hitting it hard the whole month of July. I hope that will get me back to focusing on my goals.

I had my surgery 3/9, then got no support. Was stalled the first month. It was more than frustrating. I think I’m down 40 pounds, including the presurgical loss. I had hoped it would be faster. I reached out to the doctor. All he said was, Do you want to be a pile of skin?” The office support is non existent. I am using the ProTracker, Keto/calorie, free app. If I go no carb, I stall. Too much Protein, I have a gout attack. Have been diligent about keeping carbs under 50, Calories under 1000. Exercise is sporadic, as I had a serious leg injury, in April. I have no desire to binge, which is a big plus, no cravings for anything. I’m doing all I can, and focus on that. A pound-a pound and a half, a week, will have to do. It’s the mystery up a pound, that’s hard to take.

I’m down 50, haaaave I believe 30 more to go... ish. I got my first stall man is it brutal. I can’t tell if it’s already getting hard because I have less to lose or if it is just truly a stall. But I’ve been sitting at my weight for a couple weeks now.... just trying to keep doing my thing and keep the faith that it’ll start moving again soon!!

Day of surgery weight was 345. I am currently 293. It's coming off terribly slow, but I have not been exercising much as I should due to gyms being closed down in NC. It's coming off, but very very slowly!
