i have only lost 14lbs since my surgery. i have done alot of working out in december and January more that i ever have in my life! the nurse at the bariatric office told me that im a little behind on the weight loss. so she told me zero carbs for a week to shock my body, and boost my metabolisim. i will be starting this tomorrow. i guess the upside to this DS to me so far is that i have'nt gained any weight. I had my Surgery October 25th 2012. any advice/encouragement is greatly appreciated. im struggling with an extremely slow weight loss.
I am amazed at your lack of weight loss. I am not in the medical field, but have been studying the DS for years since it is something I will live with for the rest of my life. Who is your surgeon? Are you sure he is reputable and that you really got a true DS? I have never heard of anyone losing so little in the first three months. I hope you find so answers because your post is troubling to me.

So sorry you haven't had the weight loss that you were expecting, everyone is different, but I would think you should have lost more then that. I had my DS Sept. 13th lil over a month before yours and I have lost a total of 109 so far......Id be checking into this a lil more.....Good luck to you.....
I agree with getting operative report, have you measured your body? Working out like you describe could be reforming your body, just not shedding the lbs.
How is your nutrition (how much protein, carbs, h20), usually people do not follow the surgeons office 'RNY' advice.
How's your restriction?
What's the length of your CC?
What is your French bougie size?
I hope you can figure something out and that you find answers. I wish you the best of luck.
as a matter of fact dani i am reading my surgical report wrong. i dont know what my CC is yet. i have an appointment with my surgeon this friday so that he can go over this surgical report with me. so i will see exactly what my cc is, and get a better understand of what was done to me.
