Hi

I'm 8 weeks gastric bypass on Wednesday. 34lb at moment but my surgeon and team say slow and sure as I was like wow people loose far more faster but I started at 266lb.

I stalled at some point but I take a picture every month on the first and the difference is showing.

My mobility is so much better and I can now buy clothes in normal shops and stopping to hide under my baggies.

Your doing great keep up the fantastic work

Xxx

So I'm 7 weeks post op now and I've been stalled for a week. Do you know how long your stall was? I had the surgery when I weighed 279 and I lost 30 so far.

Sleeved on 10/18. I stalled about two weeks ago. I freaked out and reached out to the nutritionist but she didn’t say it was normal. I’m so glad it happens and I wasn’t overeating. But since then I haven’t checked the scale because I was checking it everyday. Now I’m nervous but I know I’m losing weight because my clothes are looser.

I won't get on the scale. I am still learning that this is a tool. I got frustrated with my self because I had a family emergency and I moved on to soft foods earlier. Sometimes I feel like food is stuck in my throat but I try to slow down and keep moving forward. In any case I'm walking almost 10 miles every week and using MFP. I have to count calories!

I hope you all are doing well!

It’s hard not to. I see results but I want the scale to confirm it.

Yeah I started soft foods a couple of days earlier than my group class and I was struggling because I was trying to eat and drink. Now I know to set a 30 minute timer. It’s crazy how the food just goes down on its own and before we used to drink it down.

Wow I still can’t walk much but will when I go back to the office next week. I moved to soft foods a few days earlier too and it got stuck but go slowly. I finally am officially on all solids now and am nervous what to eat.

October 8th, emergency surgery on the 10th, second emergency surgery on the 15th!


Finally was able to start eating puréed foods at the very end of December/beginning of January. I was finally told I can eat foods except bread, Pasta and raw vegetables but I can’t eat more than about 700 calories a day and now my weight loss has stalled and I don’t know why. It is very frustrating after all the issues I have had. Happily take advice, please!!!

Hope you're feeling better after your emergency surgeries! Are you tracking your food? I use the Baritastic app and I notice I stall if I don't track and hit my Protein goal. I had my surgery on October 11, and I'm a slow loser because I have a disability and don't get in much physical activity. So long as you're not eating over your calories and getting enough protein though you're on the right track.

I am tracking everything in myfitness pal. The least I have eating in a day is a little over 500 calories and the most right under 800 and I get at least 60 grams of protein even though I know it is supposed to be a minimum of 90. It is just so difficult! My doctor said it is normal to just intake that many calories at first but I don’t know why the stall in weight loss. It is so weird and I am so discouraged! I know it will get better though! It just has to!

I had my sleeve surgery on Oct 27, 2021 and have also struggled with Protein and Water intake especially in the beginning. I'm continuing to lose but I notice it's defiantly easier at home where I have everything setup. I've started traveling a bit and I've noticed difficulties with keeping the regiment especially with getting enough protein. I have gotten used to taking my Purist Thermal 32oz everywhere with me which I love. my goal is to drink the thermal by noon and refill and finish the 2nd one by bedtime. For me this has worked well! I had a couple other thermals in the beginning but by the end of the day the drink didn't taste the same. This doesn't happen with the Purist thermal, and why I've bought a couple of them. Also I've been doing the Supernatural Exercise program on a VR Oculus Quest 2 headset for movement and steps. Its amazing, super fun and really gets me moving and working a sweat in the comfort of my own home. If you haven't seen it you should check it out as it been a game changer for me and is only 10 to 30 mins. I still feel that I could have lost more than I have but I focus like many of you on that I'm still going in the right direction.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
