First Official Post-Op Weigh-In

Starting Weight   226.4 (9/6/12 at Lap Band Consultation)

Today's Weight  215.0

Total Loss of  11.4 pounds

That big ol' number up there at the top is awful.  I have never weighed that much before in my entire life, and never will again!!  I am very impressed at the numbers so far, but I can totally understand the losses considering the diet I have been on this week, if you can call it that.  I'm trying to get more calories in but I'm just not hungry.  

According to my calculations, I have been getting about 300-400 calories per day, which I know is nowhere near enough.  I am still on full liquids and I'm doing good to finish a cup of soup before I'm full.  I try to have something nourishing to drink with me all day, but I'm just not interested.  I wish I could have said that a couple weeks ago before I polished off 3 slices of pizza.  I tried some cream of wheat for dinner last night and it went down alright, but I was only able to eat a couple tablespoons before I was done.  I have been drinking my protein shakes for breakfast, but it takes me a good 45 minutes to finish it, again not really interested in eating.  

I go in for my 2-week post-op next Tuesday and we will see if anything changes by that time.  Until then, I'm gonna keep trying to get some good stuff in my little tummy and hopefully get some energy going.  


  1. You are doing great! I didn't worry about my calories (or lack of) for the first couple of weeks. I only worried about if I was getting enough to drink. Your appetite will increase as you heal.

  2. Nice loss! Yes - just stay hydrated if you can!

  3. how exciting for you. And really as long as you aren't doing 300 kcals a day for a long period of time, you're good! and yes, stay hydrated!

  4. Yup, the first weeks aren't really about hitting calorie goals. I do confess I loved those big numbers the first few weeks!
