A few pound away from pre surgery weight



Recommended Posts

I am in the process of getting cleared for sleeve surgery. Do you think my surgeon will give me a date if I am Only 3 pounds from the weight he wanted me to weigh?

I would think so. Three lbs could due to just Water retention - or constipation. Of course I'm not the surgeon, but a two or three lb daily fluctuation is pretty common....so I personally wouldn't think anything of someone being a couple of pounds "up".

I think you could certainly argue if he chose not to, especially since your weight can fluctuate 3-5 lbs. just based on things like how much salt you've eaten, stress level, whether you're close to the monthly time, or a zillion other factors. You could point out that you've lost N pounds and are clearly able to follow instructions.

Honestly, I doubt you'll have a problem.

Yes I believe they will - you'll likely lose it.

Even Dr. Now would give you grace for 3 lbs.! I don’t think you have a worry!

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
