Sleeved on 6/5/2020 - hospital return - no weight loss since



Recommended Posts

Greetings All. May I please have a few suggestions and some encouragement? I was doing well since having my sleeve done on 6/5. Until On 6/22, I was 23lbs down. Then, I had a few hiccups. On 6/22, I had to go back into the hospital. I was not able to put anything in, and even Vitamins came back up. I stayed in the hospital for three days. I was put on fluids for dehydration and prednisone for a swollen esophagus. I was discharged on 6/24 and had put on 8lbs of Water weight. Discharge orders were for me to return to liquids and puree. Yesterday was my last day on prednisone and I have been back to exercising. Today, that Fluid retention weight is off, but I have not lost anymore. I need to keep losing! Too early for this!!

PS, I cannot [emoji102] at another Ensure or Boost. My Protein intake is terrible! I am playing around with a lot of things..... I cannot find anything palatable! I know I have to be patient with my body, but [emoji3061].

6/5/2020 - Beginning weight - 272lbs

6/22/2020- 249lbs

6/28/2020 - stuck on 250lbs!

Thanks!!!![emoji854]

You're likely stuck in the third week stall. It's normal and it will blow over. Not everyone gets the third week stall (I didn't) but stalls happen frequently and as annoying as they are it's just your body adjusting. They usually last a week or two. I've had three so far and I'm 5 months out.

It is probably a combination of the steroids and the 3 week stall. My "3 week stall" actually started at week 2 1/2 and lasted 3 weeks. It eventually broke and I've been pretty steady since.

For Protein, I like the Premier Protein shakes in chocolate and Latte (if your Dr. is OK with caffeine). You can find them at costco as well as online.

Cover the basics first... you absolutely must get your Water intake up. Many are unaware that water is needed to shed adipose tissue. Dehydration will severely hinder FAT loss efforts, as will Iron deficiency.

Thanks!! I have been doing pretty good with Water intake. I put a hint of flavor because plain water just won't go down. It is so hard. Yes, I absolutely need to start my Vitamins again. Any suggestions? The chewables make me gag.

I used effervescents for awhile... I added them to big jar of water then let it sit in fridge overnight (no effervescent bubbles by then). You might also try vitamin patches as a last resort.

Hey!!! Okay I am going to look into the Patches. Letting the Vitamins sit in Water sounds doable too, now that I can drink a little more! Thank you !!
