I am 20 days post op and have stalled at the same weight now since post op day 10. I lost 10 lbs the first week and 5 on opti. I have not lost a thing since then. Im keeping my calories to 600 a day now on soft foods, tracking my food and drinking my water and taking my vitamins. Protein has been always at 65grams and carbs have been between 25-30 grams....

Is this a stall because i am so frustrated ! Im 4'11 and started at 204 lbs , lost 5 on opti and 10 the first week after rny. Is the fact that im a lightweight making it harder for me ? Also, i had a revision from lapband to rny, is this making it harder to lose as well ? I read that somewhere...

Any advice would be helpful... so discouraged...

At only 20 days post op I'm surprised you can get in 600 calories. Certainly that still isn't very many but I'm surprised. Your body is likely just adjusting to major surgery. How is your water intake? You want it to be in the 100 oz range. So early out I ate next to zero carbs. I concentrated on protein only.

I have read here many times that revisions lose a little slower than others but no I don't think the fact that you're a lightweight is slowing you down.

Post your typical daily menu and it will be easier for us to help you trouble shoot. Make sure you are getting your water in because that's a big deal.

Over 100 lbs lost!

My soft food stage ...

Breakfast- 1 scoop whey protein islolate 100 cals

1 cup unsweetened cashew milk 25 cals

Snack- on the go cottage cheese 113 g. 90 cals

Lunch- 1/2 cup white bean chicken chili. 128 cals

Snack - herb and garlic laughing cow cheese 2 triangles. 45cals

Dinner- chilli ( extra lean ground beef, kidney beans etc ) 1/2 cup 175cals

Water intake is usually around 6-7 cups , hard to ge****er in so addin Mio flavouring...

Healthly carbs are allowed ie. beans etc- have had no other like bread, crackers etc

Also, i know i am in slight ketosis because i have tested...i do notice it in inches a bit but still thought weight loss would be more by the fact that im not eating as mucch, avoiding all carbs and sugar etc....

I know that healthy carbs are encouraged by most NUTS but I think you'll find most of the successful people on these boards avoid them during the losing stage.

When you say 6 -7 cups of water are you talking 8 oz cups? That's not near enough water IMO. I would try to up that if you can.

Your menu looks pretty good except maybe the carbs in the beans......

Keep your protein and water up and your carbs as low as you can during the losing phase and keep at it.

Good luck to you and stick around. I'm sure others will chime in once they get back to the boards, this one is visited by mostly Americans, and they are enjoying their holiday. Try the Ontario Board or even the Revision board if you want more advice.

Over 100 lbs lost!

I didn't lose much the first month while it felt like others on this site were dropping huge amounts. Eventually the many stalls followed by some weight loss over the course of a year added up to about 150 lbs lost. It's a race where the tortoise wins every time.
