I am a little more than 4 months post surgery and I am seeing similar issues. I lost almost 80 pounds overall but find that I reach plateaus and sit there at that weight for a while. I am still under 1000 calories per day and walk around 4 miles a day, trying to keep active. I watch the Protein, drink 80 ounces of Water per day and try to do everything I am told to do.

Right now I have been stuck at 216-217 for 2 weeks. This morning I dropped to 214 so I hope it is another stall broken and I drift down for a couple weeks. I want to get to under 200 pounds but it has become more and more difficult. Being cold outside is not helping because I would like to exercise more but at 20 degrees, it is hard to stay outside. I hope to drift down slowly then when spring comes, really go crazy riding my bike and walking and get down below 200 quickly after that.

I was at 206 lbs for .... 5 weeks or so? I really thought that was it and that my body was happy with our new weight. Just bouncing up and down a pound, back and forth. Then blam, outta nowhere, 5 came off. Then, 5 more. Then covid and 5 more, but that was 5 too many - had one morning of 190.8 and then I swear, the 5 covid lbs came back in 4 days.

The body does what it does. We're just helping :)

You've been very successful. Congratulations! 50 pounds in 3 months is outstanding! Your body is going through an adjustment period. Just keep doing what you're doing and it'll start moving again. No worries.

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

      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!
