4 months post op... loss slowing



Recommended Posts

Just wondering i anyone noticed a big decrease in their loss at this point? I lost quite quickly in the begining, but now have slowed to about a pound a week. Im know this isnt' a race, and Im still grateful for loosing, but I was just looking for your experience and any tips you guys might have! Thanks:)

You've done really well and have lost double what I've lost!!

My loss has slowed to a pound a week too - and my surgeon is more than happy with that - in fact they say between 4lb and 7lb a month is a good loss and that any faster than that and you risk excess skin.

I'd rather lose it slow and steady than drop very quickly and have to deal with excess skin!

I am 4 months post op as well and my total weight loss is 19lbs. That gets me discouraged at times but I try to stay positive. I had my second fill 2 1/2 weeks ago and have not lost anything since then. I have no restriction at all... it's weird, I almost wish I wouldn't have got the second fill because I was losing with the first one. I am going to call the doctor tomorrow because it doesn't make sense.

I am 5 months post op today, and my weight loss has slowed dramatically. I don't go back to the doctor until Dec. 11, so I will make sure to talk with him about why he thinks I've slowed down. Some days I'm so tight I can barely eat anything, yet on other days, I'm so hungry I want to eat everything!

Just saying that I'm in the same boat as you! I'm not discouraged, just a bit puzzled!

      Hi everyone, I wrote back in May about having no strength. I still get totally exhausted just walking from room to room, it’s so bad I’m using a walker with wheels of all things. I had the gastric sleeve Jan. 24th. I’m doing exactly what the programs says, except protein shakes. I have different meats and protein bars daily, including vitamins daily. I do drink my fluids as well.  I go in for IV hydration 4 days a week and feel ok just til evening.  So far as of Jan 1st I’ve dropped 76 lbs. I just want to enjoy the weight lose. Any suggestions or has anyone else gone thru this??  Doctor says just increase calorie intake, still the same.

      Losing my hair in clumps and still dealing with "stomach" issues from gallbladder removal surgery. On the positive side I'm doing better about meeting protein and water goals and taking my vitamins, so yay? 🤷‍♀️

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.
