3 weeks post op Scales not moving



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone I had Gastric Sleeve surgery on September 2nd 2020. My Highest weight was 216lbs my weight day of Surgery was 207lbs. 3 weeks post op and I’m staying consistent at 195lbs which is basically the same weight I was after surgery. It’s hard most days for me to get in all of my Protein and liquids as of now I can drink at least 25oz-30oz of liquids and with my height and weight I’m suppose to be consuming 70 grams protein 64 oz of Water according to my doctor . She also told me my Protein Shakes would be considered with the liquids. Still I can o my drink 30z most days I can finish only 1 Premier Protein shake .


I’m curious am I not loosing any weight because I’m not consuming enough protein?! Just very worried feel like I’m failing this procedure .

do a search on the three week stall. Happens to almost everyone. There are literally like 15,000 posts about it here on BP. Just stick to your plan and stay off the scale if you have to - and know that it WILL break. It usually lasts 1-2 weeks.

Same here!! Same date, too. I am told by EVERYONE this is normal. So...thank the good Lord for that news! I have seen so many other changes that I must be doing something right. And I'm sure you see it in other areas, too. Right? And the changes in my moods and energy along with all the changes in my selfies lol have been awesome! How about you? Frankly, I want to throw the scales in the trash compactor.
