Tracking weight loss



Recommended Posts

Baritastic is what I use for food. It also tracks my weight by linking to my Fitindex app that is connected via Bluetooth to my scale. Fitindex does BMI and other weight related measurements….they also have a Bluetooth measuring tape that is awesome.

So, I step on the scale, Fitindex logs the weight and the weight is automatically transferred to Baritastic.

I track my food in myfitnesspal - and record my weight there once a week (on Wednesdays - the day I had my surgery back in 2015).

then once a month, on the date of my surgery (the 3rd), I put my weight in an Excel spreadsheet.

Been using the app called Libra. It shows graphs, BMI, rate of weight loss per week, how many calories less you ate a day, goal vs actual... Etc.

I track my food in MyFitnessPal (I tried and hated both Baritastic and MyMacros+).

I track my weight and BMI with FitIndex which connects to my smart scale and the super-awesome smart measuring tape. I weigh in every Monday morning.

I use the free version of My Fitness Pal. All I really care about is my Protein intake so it's really just to make sure I get enough. I'm 3 yrs out now and still weigh myself daily but record it only once a week on Sunday. This works for me.

I use MyFitnessPal (free version). I've been using it since 2011 and I really like that I have that history there. You can create and save recipes you make, you can get macros, look at your weight over time, etc. There's a lot more it can do that I haven't figured out because I'm not great with technology.

I use Baritastic to track food because its linked to my surgeon's office; it also tracks weight/BMI/goals. I also use a FitTrack scale, which I LOVE because its incredibly data heavy, the app is super user friendly. I also use an app called "monitor your weight" because I like the layout.

Now I'm using WW proprietary food tracking app that includes activity and weight, but before that I was using FitnessPal, which has both free and premium paid options. It works really well.

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!

        Hello! I m 3 weeks post op and I just went through the worst constipation of my life
        I was severely impacted for 4 days (it was at the door) it was the worst experience ever!
        within 2 hrs I did 2 suppositories and 2 enemas, it did nothing! I always had the urge to go but it wouldn't come out, with the enemas the urge was greater but still nothing! the following morning I did another enema and nothing. I ended up going to the ER and got IV hydration but they recommended to manually scoop some out which I did but girl it was not enough for relief. My MD recommended: stop protein shakes and go back to liquids only like during week 1 and oral exlax pills, 1 dose and if no bowel movement within 4 hrs then another dose. I needed the 2nd dose by the next day I finally started to get relief.

        my advise before you get so constipated like me, is drink smooth move tea and
        if you get impacted like i was maybe try the exlax after you contact your surgeon and let him know they may advise to stop the protein shakes until you have a bowel movement.

        I know you are only day 4 so maybe not to worry right now. I had my first bowel movement on day 5 post surg. BUT BEWARE of not drinking water!
        I struggle with my water intake too, which is why i became so constipated. all that protein but no water, I know its really hard but we have to try. for me that whole experience has been so bad I am afraid to eat anything! Drinking teas really helps me with the water. I like chamomile and the smooth move tastes pretty good. I also try to ALWAYS have a water bottle in my hand. that is a good reminder to drink it. right now i am assuming you are at home mostly resting so its easy to just have it in your hand at all times.
        and I know its prob bad but I havent had a protein shake in a week. I'm barely recuperating from all that impaction trauma, lol.

      2. Uniquely Me

        I hadn’t pooped in a week also. I was taking benefiber everyday and nothing. I finally decided to take a laxative and went. I’m 9 1/2 weeks post op DS.
