I had a gastric sleeve in 2012 and went down to 167. I'm 5'11" so I looked great. I gained weight after the 5 year mark and went up to 235 [I was originally 280] and I was so depressed. I got a revision sleeve. First 2 weeks I lost 5 lbs each and then BAM nothing week 3 and GAINED 3 lbs week 4. I swear to you if I'm even getting 1200 calories once a week that's a lot and I walk for miles. Anyone else have this experience and any words of hope? Hanging by a thread.

I have the same problem. I think its just a bad metabolism for myself. Keep doing what you are suppose to do, maybe you are just having a stall.

I am down to 213. It's been 13 weeks. 22 pounds. scale just doesn't move. Some days I'm suicidal, some days I just say I did all I could

Dont stop or give up. Stick with the plan and keep pushing forward. 22lbs is great !! In 6 months you will be down to where you were before !!
