I had my revision surgery on 2/24. My weight was 181. Since then I am only at 173 (it bounces a couple of pounds). It has not moved (mostly) since 3/5. Getting Water in is brutal. The taste is awful to me and no matter what I try it just doesn't work. I've started going on walks (when the weather permits) and also hop on the exercise bike when I can. I am hitting Protein goals. I keep going back and forth between saying "it's just a stall" and "that's it - you did this for a measly 8 pounds". My original surgery was the sleeve and I was always stalling. I am just a little down in the dumps and needed to vent.

I'm sorry to hear you're struggling. I had THE SAME issue with Water. Found that I love Fiji water. Its expensive but it tastes like something.

I was told with the revision (coming up TUESDAY) loss would be slower than the first time around. Kind of like... our body is onto us.

Try sugar free Popsicles and Jello to get more liquids in. You got this!

Sorry, you're having a rough time. It's easy to get discouraged when you're doing everything right and the scale isn't moving in the right direction. I hope your hard work starts to pay off soon.

weight loss after revision is almost always slower than it is after a "virgin" surgery, and on top of that, you're starting off at a much lower weight than most of us, which also means slow weight loss. And...you're about three weeks out. Just in time for the infamous "three week stall" to boot.

I had a revision October 29th last year and started at 185. The first month I lost just about 8 pounds, since it took a week and a half to loose the 10 pounds I gained in the hospital. After that, I started to see a steady drop, but like catwoman7, revision weight loss is definitely slower than the original sleeve.

Don't be discouraged, it will level out and the weight will drop. As someone on social media posted - "weight loss surgery is all about making better decisions" - about what we eat, how we exercise and how we view our health!

All good vibes from us to you, @Plutonium

I'm on all liquids today and despite my disdain for Water I'm looking for 80 oz. I've had... 8. Baby steps, right? LOL

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
