  1. Aydensmomma,
    Thanks for asking. I am doing better. I DID get past the stall!! I am pretty excited the scale has started to move again. I think you are right about the acid in the tummy feeling also. I have been making sure I don't forget to take my omeprazole also. I also think after years of head vs tummy hungry I am still learning with my new tummy which is which. I am cutting my calories back down to 600-800 now and also making sure I follow all the drinking rules, ect.
    When did you have your surgery? How are you doing?

    Hello! Did you get past the stall? I read that your getting up to 1200 calories a day. Im around 600cal per day. I try to drink water all day and I'm not hungry for food. I was feeling hungry for a while, no matter what. I take prilosec. What I thought was hunger was actually acid in the tummy. Really felt like hunger. Hope your doing well

6 months out and only 40 lbs down... feeling sad

by mercyme62 on 06-28-2015 at 10:14 PM
I am a former lap band patient, I had it done in 2009 and lost 60 lbs, gained back 20 lbs over the 5 years.. I had the band removed last August and then had the gastric sleeve in December. I am walking, getting my protein I am guessing I am still just eating too much.. Any ideas to get me going again.. I was loosing so good those 1st couple of months and then it just stopped.. I am feeling very discouraged. I was hoping to be down 50 lbs by now. Thank you for any suggestions.
