I'm so discouraged right now. Had VSG May 8, lost 20 lbs in the first 3-4 weeks, then stalled since. I've had 3 periods in those 6 weeks, even though I had novasure to remove endometrial lining in January. Saw the NUT last week and she told me that my weight loss was too low (of course, it was lovely to hear this after she told me how she'd never been able to gain weight til she was 40 which means she totally doesn't understand where I'm coming from.)
I was so encouraged and excited by the weight loss in the first month. I know that I did a TON of exercising right after surgery, walking around shopping with my mom. I'm not exercising 60min/day 6x/week like my NUT wants, but I'm a single mom of 3 working full time and doing what I can - which is walking during lunch at work and doing the elliptical at home.
I started taking metformin this last week in the hopes of jump-starting something but it's giving me headaches and a hypoglycemic feelings. Need to find my glucometer to check blood sugar when I feel that way.
So I've increased activity, increased water, and no weight loss. Any suggestions or has anyone else gone through this?
