    Default No weight loss in 2 weeks

    Hello All
    Yesterday was my one month surgiversary and I am so darn frustrated. I have not lost any weight in 2 weeks. I am doing everything right and I just don't understand it. I lost 15 pounds with my pre-surgery diet and I lost 18 pounds my first 2 weeks after surgery but that seems to have completely stopped. I just started to eat solid foods this week and I am drinking a lot of water. I have been walking and some light weight work. I just don't know what to do. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Have you tried doing your measurements? I find when I don't see the scale moving I see it in inches!! Don't worry though. Sometimes just making sure you are adding more protein and cutting down on carbs and you can get the scale moving!! I have lost a lot of weight with the sleeve but I had my plateau moments and these things worked for me!! Good Luck!!

    Thanks for the wise words. To be honest I am not eating any carbs and maybe about 2oz of protein per meal so maybe I need to add a protein shake at dinner time to try and up my protein. I think I am not taking in enough but find it so hard since my sleeve only holds a very tiny bit right now.....I have dropped 3 clothes sizes and I am certainly happy about that but it is killing me that in 2 weeks I have lost a big fat 0....lol
    Thanks again

    The doctor told me today that it is best to get 60 to 80 grams of protein a day. Especially when you are still not eating a lot of other foods you will need to add the protein. Good luck.

    hi! i am over 4 months after my surgery and still feeding mostly with liquids. the scale is an every day torture because i stall for long periods, then lose a kilo and then stall again... i think thats because the lack of food intake but i still feel like the first days when i could only drink a few sips...

    Hang in there Tammy! You are doing great so far. My nutritionist said that we will all hit plateaus and not to become discouraged. (Of course, I didn't think the plateaus would start so soon.) She also said that it is essential to strive for a minimum of 60 grams of protein each day. You want your body to live off of the stored fat, not your muscle; so it is important to keep up the protein and the exercise so that you don't lose muscle. I bet the next time you step on the scale you will have dropped multiple pounds!

    I soo feel your pain, I'm one month out and havent lost a pound in over a week. But like other posts I have lost inches. It's beyond fustrating but I guess we all go through this



    You can find me on Facebook under Leslie Hurtado or ThtzMsPrincess2U
    Also my goal weight was 160 lbs but I'm now below goal and hopefully holding at 151 and not just in a stall
