Today is 5 weeks post op for me and I had another weigh in. I was weighed 10 days ago and in the last 10 days have added quite a bit of starchy carbs back into my diet. I was curious to see if my weight loss slowed down or stopped since in the past prior to surgery I had always gained if I ate very many starchy carbs. I had only lost 2.2 kilos which was a rate of half a pound per day while before my rate of loss was about 1.25 pds per day. I have to get weighed next Monday on my 6 week anniversary, so in the meantime I have decided to concentrate heavily on my protein again and cut out the starchy carbs and see if that turns things around. I suppose if I have a much greater weight loss that just might prove my point that more protein and less carbs is what takes the weight off. At least it would prove the point well enough to me so that I know what I am going to do with my diet in the future. so all told that is 16.6 kilos/36.52 pounds in 35 days. not too bad if I keep that up. I have alot of weight to lose so the more that I can take off in the beginning the happier I will be. I have more than half my body weight to lose, so I don’t want to have to be struggling with that when my weight loss does slow down. 😀
