Weight gaine 3 weeks post op from sleeve



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

So just want some feedback as I weighed in today and started pureed food 1 week ago. I have 6.2lbs back of the 11lbs I lost the first 2 weeks. Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong? As anyone else experienced this?

i am pre op… but are you tracking calories and nutrition macros? are you hitting Water goals?

could be retaining water or not balancing something in your diet. if it persists, talk to your nutritionist/ surgeon about it

you would have had to have eaten 21,700 calories above and beyond what your body needs to have put on 6.2 lbs in one week. I suspect it's just Water retention. Or it could be due to a very full bowel.

I am not tracking calories right now as I just started pureed a week ago and I can barely eat 2 oz a day twice a day. But it can't hurt to start tracking. Also, I still struggle to get all of my water in but am working on it. Will definitely be talking to my doctor and dietician.

Fluctuation is normal that early out. Try to weigh yourself less. It is not physically possible to eat enough to gain 6 lbs in a week, especially after WLS. You just can't eat enough to do it.

Just stick to your plan and you will see the weight fall off.

Good luck!

I agree with others. It’s just a fluctuation. Weigh yourself less often.
