18months post op- weight loss??



Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just wondered for how long do people generally keep losing weight for after surgery. I'm 18 months post sleeve and I barely lose anything each month now. Is this nora. In last 6 months I've lost just under a stone and feel I should be losing more than this. I can go 4 or 5 weeks and never lose a thing.

I'm on permanent crutches or wheelchair so mobility is very limited but I try and move as much as I can each day.

Any tips or advice please. X x

Switch you diet and do some Fasting - Drop one day below 500 calories and then the next bump to 900 then back down. Intermitted fasting during it also. Time to trick the body to start burning again

Are you still following the program and adhering the the 60g Protein, 64 oz of Water, and limiting carbs and sugars? Try resetting your diet by going back to 800 calories/day for a week or so and reboot your diet.

weight loss DOES slow down a lot after the first year. How long you keep losing depends on how much more you have to lose and how closely you stick to your program. My body stopped losing at about 20 months post-op. I can tell you those last few months the weight loss took FOREVER, though...we're talking like a couple of pounds a month...

The smaller you get, the less calories you require. Depending on our current height, weight and activity level, you may need to either decrease your calories or increase your activity to ensure you remain at a calorie deficit. The bigger the deficit, the faster/more weight you will lose.

Good Luck!

Hi. I've only been losing about 3lb per month since 10 months post op. Then I stopped losing for 3 months then it started again but I can go 3 weeks and not lose anything then suddenly on week 4 I will lost 3lb. Like you say it takes forever.

I am sticking to the Protein but wasn't told anything about Water and I know I don't drink enough. I only have between 600-800 calories a day anyway so don't think I should cut down more???
