Anyone else hit 2 plateaus within 3 months of surgery?
Apparently, my body thinks it needs time to "adjust." I am frustrated. I have changed nothing I am doing, and am losing slowly anyway, but I got on the scale today and had gained 1.5lbs in two days!!!! I am 14 weeks post op as of tomorrow and factoring in the gain have only lost 44 lbs. I was not a big eater pre-op but managed to lose 15 lbs in the 2 months prior to surgery. I am wondering, hmm, was this surgery really worth it? First, I have been following my surgeon's instructions for the most part, I'd be lying if I said I didn't slip once or twice and have carbs. But, c'mon! I lost weight in the 2 months before surgery and I ate carbs then. This is my second plateau. My last one lasted 3 weeks from week 7 to week 10. I have been eating mainly protein and some veggies with an occasional piece of fruit. I also have been drinking my water, everyday and until the last couple of weeks, when it wasn't convenient, have been walking. I don't know if I am necessarily asking for advice, but maybe mostly I am just frustrated here. Anyone else going through this?
