Ok, so I had gastric sleeve on May 7, 2014. Which is seven weeks ago and I have lost 42 lbs. All of the sudden this last week I lose a pound or so than the next day I gain it back. This has been going on every day for a week straight. I heard that this happens to everyone however I thought it would be later on down the road when I had my last 30 pounds to lose. Can anyone tell me if this is normal? Has this happenned to you? Any suggestions on what I can do to get past this hurdle. Not like I'm eating a ton of food. I honestly eat like 3 or 4 bites and am full, so I stop. I welcome any suggestions you can offer me.

I had my surgery Marcg 11th. I had a week of not losing anything. Now im back to losing again. Its important to weight yourself at the sameime time everyday. Your weight can vary through so much throughout the day.

Hello!! I had the Gastric Sleeve April 29,2014. I've had this happen to me also. my nurse told me to be sure I continue my protein shakes along with my small meals. I agree with the first post, your weight can change thru out the day depending on what time you weight in. The best time to weight yourself is in the morning....with no clothes on LOL.

Stalls happen so it is important to stick to your plan regardless.

Yes I do track and measure everything. The only thing that I did differently was I ran out of my protein shake mix. I had been drinking three of them a day for a total of 60 grams of protein a day. I was trying to get protein from my meals. Im back to three shakes a day now. Hoping this increases my weight loss. I will keep you posted. Thanks!
I keep my carbs under 40 grams daily.

Wow not eniugh protein in the shakes im using? Im using the product Permalean which was given to me by my surgeon. They sale the priduct right in the offuce. According to what ive read im should have 60 grams of protein a day. I ran out but am having three a day again. Hoping that helps. I have my next doctor visit in a few weeks. I will talk to him and the nutritionist. Thanks!
I use premier protein shakes which have 30 grams of protein with 160 calories. I get my shakes from Costco. I am not able to drink milk because of lactose intolerance.
It is important to follow your plan yet you must advocate for yourself as well.
