I'm a bit confused? Can you help me understand if you're concerned about your calories being too low or too high? My plan does not have any mention of calorie goals at all, at any stage, so I'm not sure what you're shooting for.

That is just it, I have no idea what my calorie goals are supposed to be. I use myfitnesspal and I am super under but for some reason I thought I was supposed to be between 5-600 right now.

I have been around 500-600 the last few days and just started my 3rd week

That is where I have been too. 800, if I get through all of it today is a huge jump.

I found a great article on calories here but will double check with doctor. How Many Calories Should I Eat After Gastric Sleeve: A Quick Guide (drjalil.com)

I'm new here as well. Scheduled for Sept 20th.

I'm a little disappointed with how little weight I've lost but other than that I can't complain - how about you?

About 13 lbs
Since the 20th? That's over half a pound a day! That seems really good to me! However I know when you don't meet your expectations, it sucks. You got this though! I keep hearing most Dr's don't care about how much you lose until after you start regular food anyway! The rest is just a transition.

My surgery was also 9/20. I’ve “only” lost 4 lbs since surgery. During the preop diet I lost almost 20.

im trying not to stress about it too much but it is a bit disappointing. Just have to remind myself constantly it’s the long term benefits that matter. But yea. I hear you.

Omigosh that actually makes me feel so much better - my doc didn't have me lose prior so I expected big numbers in the first few weeks. Thank you so much really appreciate it.

My HW 230 my SW 220.4 I had my surgery 9/28/22 CW 213.6. I see lots of these post about not losing weight. I think its because we are all different all bodies are not the same. I do hope and pray that we all get to our weight goal. 🙏

Oh really?! That makes sense bc i went to doc today and he didnt even comment on my weight loss - you are so right, I shouldnt get wrapped up in it, but its hard lol. Thank you for the kind words, this is a journey :)

Incase anyone needs a little extra hydration these are wonderful, my doctor suggested these or liquid iv these are a little cheaper, you can get them from Amazon and they have alot of different flavors, my mom even found an apple cider one ....

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
