7 weeks post op

Rate this Entry
Hi all! Well it's now been 7 weeks and I feel great!

The first 5 weeks were not fun but I am all healed and have been swimming every day this week :-)

I have not once overeaten or been sick. Everything I've tried seems to settle well including chicken and fish. I still haven't tried pasta, rice, bread or any red meat but I'm really happy with my progress.

I seem to be able to drink a lot more now too and I'm still supplementing with protein powder just to be on the safe side.

I have lost a total of 39lbs (including pre op phase) and my weight loss has slowed down to 1lb per week in the last two weeks. I assume this is due to eating more solid foods. I am expecting a stall at some point but for now I'm pleased my weight is still coming off :-)

I hope to lose another 15lb by Christmas......I hope that is achievable!

I hope you are all doing well too!

    I am almost 8 weeks out. Since surgery I have lost close to 35lbs...my weight loss prettty much stopped for like 2 weeks, then it was 3lbs the next week. I figured out what I was doing wrong..I wasnt eating enough..my body was going into starvation mode..So I tacked on another 100 calories or so and I started loosing again..I have eaten red meat several times, hot sauce..pretty much anything they said might not be tolerable after..Well I can eat it all..I have not had any issues at all with food...except my taste buds did change a little...anyhow keep up the good work, sometimes ya just got to jolt your system into working again

    I've increased my calories a lot this week - now having 1000 calories per day as advised so fingers crossed, my weight loss will increase :-)
