hi everyone, I am feeling really well. Still cant tolerate Protein Shakes, no matter what brand/flavor/homemade it is.

I am still able to get my Protein in through other approved measures.

I cant wait to move to thin purees this Friday and eat a little more protein based foods other than yogurt. So far I am down 18lbs since surgery. Hope you are all well and wishing everyone a speedy recovery. Cheers to August!

I'm 4 days out and just now feeling like the pain is manageable. I agree with the new stomach sensations. My tum is always gurgly and rumbly now, which I feel like I used to associate with hunger. So I'm feeling like I'm always hungry, even though I'm 100% sure that I'm not. It's quite annoying. Did anyone else go through that a few days after surgery? Did it go away? I hate feeling like I'm hungry constantly!
I'm in this stage right now! I would like answers too. I feel so hungry, and it's completely not what I expected.

Hello everyone,

I had my VSG on July 7th. First week I dropped about 10 lbs which was great. The past 3 weeks I have lost 3 lbs. Do you guys know the reason for this long stall? And how can I break it? I’m getting really frustrated

Also4 days out...following the program and hoping that when I get to the solid phase I feel the restriction and easily satisfy my hunger cravings.

My surgery was same day n I have been stuck for two full weeks with no loss. I feel like I am failing at this already and I consume 600 or less calories a day . I am right there with you.This is supposed to be a real thing the two week stall but it doesn’t make you feel any better when your scale won’t go in the direction you want it to.very frustrating and disappointing!

I had surgery July 24th, and I lost weight the 1st week, stalled for almost 3 weeks and then started losing finally. my dietician had me add a little carbs into my diet like oatmeal. my body does not like the zero carb thing at all. when I got my vcarbs up to around 50g a day it broke my stall. i eat about 600 calories a day, make sure i get atleasr 50 to 60 carbs, min 60 Protein. and i lose about half a pound a day, some days it stops for a few days, and then starts again. hang in there...the stall will break... don't do too much either...too much activity and not enough to burn will prolong the stall. have patience...you'll start losing again.

I lost a whopping 5 pounds the first two weeks after surgery. 😂 Things picked up in week 3 and 4. I guess I had a very early stall. I am trying to vary my macros while still getting minimum of 60 g Protein daily. Some days, more healthy fats, or more healthy carbs, or more protein while getting about 600 kcals/day. Weight loss is pretty stable now, at about 5 pounds/week. It doesn’t look like I am going to set any records for speedy weight loss, but I AM losing. Just stick with the plan and it will happen.

IWantthedream... sending you extra words of encouragement! You pushed thru preop and surgery and hit an obstacle. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it."- Michael Jordan

you got this! Don’t let the scale dictate your success . Be proud of all

you have done and the rest will follow!
