Waiting to see some scale mivemeny



Recommended Posts

So I had my surgery July 8,2020 here in the USA. I then went to Water, broths right after til the 13th then I'm on the liquid diet now. Sadly I have gained weight 8lbs.

I know I am salt sensitive and they used a saline on me but that's a lot of water weight!

I have been walking as much as possible givin the weakness I have had since surgery. About 2k steps to 3k per day plus planting flowers some yard things. Fluids are 64 oz or better and have gotten in 80 grams of Protein everyday Vitamins are happening. I'm keeping positive though that results will happen, maybe it's a body shock and it thinks hybernation mode.maybe because I'm 49 idk.

I think I am just reading everyone's story here on how much weight they lost in the 1st month and I feel like I'm dragging.

Also looking for a support group in Everett, wa or someone that I can hang with to walk.

Ty for reading my stuff.

Everyone will tell you they pump you full of air and gas for surgery and that your Weight will go up for a while until the gas goes away

if you've just been on liquids then it's probably Water retention.

Add me to the list of SLOW losers. I am two weeks post-op and have only lost 5 pounds. I am exercising about 30 mins per day and get around 7000 total steps per day. It is very frustrating watching others lose 15 pounds in the same time period. Hope my body kicks into weight loss mode soon.

I lost 16 lbs in the first MONTH, and my high weight was 373 lbs. Your rate of weight loss is your rate of weight loss. It depends on many factors - age, gender, metabolic rate, activity level, starting BMI, whether or not you lost weight prior to surgery. About the only thing you can control (other than your activity level) is your commitment to your surgeon's plan. So stick to the plan, and the weight will come off, whether fast or slow. I was a slow loser throughout the whole journey, and I ended up losing all of my excess weight. You adherence to the plan is a much better indicator of your eventual success than your rate of weight loss is.

Don't be discouraged about being on the "slower" end of losing weight. When I went in for my surgery, after following my liquid diet and other adjustments they asked me to make before my surgery, I was already down to 168. When I came out of surgery and went home, I weighed over 180. It took weeks before I got back down to my pre-surgery weight. But once I got there, the weight was regularly coming off.

I started at 313 lbs

10 lbs is month is pretty normal. I started at 373. I lost 16 lbs the first month and about 10-12 lbs a month after that. At about six or seven months out, it dropped to 5-8 lbs. I did eventually lose it all, though, so don't despair.

your calories are fine. I wouldn't increase.
