Yeah it's a bummer. But I did gain weight this appointment, 4lbs to be exact. I knew it was coming though I knew I was going to gain but geez 4lbs? Ning is very confused and doesn't know why that could have happened she said if someone with a normal size stomach adds 500 more calories a day for a week they will gain 1lb so for someone with the surgery to gain 4 is impossible she doesn't believe the scale. I personally think it could be water weight, I did have a lot of sodium the day before actually the couple days before. My carbs went way up last week I knew that was bad and well I'm due to start my time of the month sometime this week (sorry for any men that are reading).
Now I know a lot of people are going to think *you gained? you can't gain with this surgery* lots of people (practically a bitch of a neighbor across the street) will say *i told you, you did it for nothing* I am not ashamed that I gained 4lbs, in ways it is comforting that Ning doesn't know why, I want to say water weight but I don't want to be making excuses, so to hear her say it is better. Plus you know 6 weeks out of surgery is still new and your body is still traumatized. I had not had solid or normal good in 5 weeks and then to get normal food it throws your body off guard, its confused. Maybe it still thinks it is starving because my calorie intake is 500-800 a day compared to 1500 or more i would have before surgery. With the surgery YES there will be stales and YES it is common for your first one to happen around 6 weeks or when you start eating somewhat normal food. I know when I get back on that scale I will have a loss. If I don't then I want to see a doctor because something is not right.
So keep on me!!!! LOW CARB LOW CARB.
You know what I am confused about my nutritionist or Susan didn't say anything about good carbs. Are good carbs ok? People from obesityhelp.com say so but I want to know what Susan or Ning think. We do need some carbs to survive, I think I will email Susan and ask her, ask her a few more questions also. So yeah, this appointment was an upset but the 15th will be a new appointment with a weight LOSS.
