I am 4 years post op. I started at 227 and my lowest weight has been 103. I've done amazing. These last three months I have gained 14 lbs. I known shouldn't worry but I am. I would like to lose at least 7 of those. We all know the struggle and I fight it everyday still.

Any advice on how to drop those few lbs? Can't seem to do it.

Thanks so much and many blessings!!

I work 7 days a week mostly 12 hr shifts. Nights. So I honestly don't exercise. Work is my exercise. (not making excuses). I'm just wore out from working.

I eat a lot of Soup, meats, and veggies. My weakness is my coffees I do used fat free Creamer now.

My eating could be better. I don't have the time to meal prep like I used to.

Just very worried.

From your reckoning then you are 117lbs. You are still well below your goal weight and currently at a healthy BMI. Maybe your body is just readjusting. Giving yourself a little leeway might be a good thing for now.

I know and fear my worry is for nothing but going up a pants size is frightening. And If the weight continues to spike I'm in trouble cause I know how hard it is for me to lose.

I am blessed and know I am Fortunate. I'm not trying to be ungrateful at all. Just cautious.

a 10-20 lb rebound weight, usually during year 3 (although it can be earlier or later for some) is EXTREMELY common. A dietitian who gave a presentation on one of Unjury's virtual support groups a couple of weeks ago said they don't even consider it regain until you gain more than 15% of your lowest weight (so for you, that would be slightly over 15 lbs). Under that, and it's just your body settling in to a weight it feels comfortable at.

you can always lose weight again by cutting your calories - although weight loss is a struggle for those of us at or near a normal BMI.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 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!!

        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 .
