MONTHLY WEIGH IN 6 WEEKS POST OP



Recommended Posts

So i started the pre op diet on April 4th. Surgery April 18th. So far these are my stats 6 weeks post op. Always do my measurements on the 4th of the month. Not bad. Wish it was a little quicker but not bad for 6 weeks post op.

you're losing way faster than I did.

I think a lot of people's expectations are based on shows like "My 600 lb Life". You have to keep in mind that these people start out WAY heavier than the average WLS patient, who typically weighs in the 200s or 300s. So OF COURSE they're going to lose a lot faster than we do.

you are doing great!

took me 20 months. I started at over 300 lbs.

the key is following the rules and sticking to your program. If you do, you'll get there - whether fast or slow.

Great job. That's incredible. You averaged 7.5 lbs. a week. Even 7.5 lbs. in a month is great to me.

Continued success!

I LOVE that you can see non-scale victories! (I wish I had had the courage to do that.) You are fierce!

Nice spreadsheet. Blimey that's a rapid loss! Well done you. Enjoy! My loss has been a steady 2lbs a week for many months. It speeds up and slows down. Have never approached anything like yours :D

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
