My weight loss progress over the last two weeks has not been great. I’ve only lost 0.4kg (about 1 pound) in weight over that time.
It’s not a massive surprise to me, as I know my diet hasn’t been very healthy. I guess it’s the first time since surgery that I’ve been pushing the boundaries with the food I’ve been eating. My diet has been a lot richer, and contained a lot more sugar and fat. I’ve eaten (and enjoyed) a lot of cheese, bread, crisps, chocolate and icecream.
I’ve also not been tracking my foods, so I have no idea what kind of calorie intake I’ve had. I’ve still lost weight over the time, so it can’t have been terrible, but the rate of loss is much slower than I’ve been used to.
I guess the main lesson I’ve learned is:
It is absolutely possible to sabotage weight loss after bariatric surgery!
- Just because I’ve had a gastric bypass it does not guarantee a weight loss
- I cannot eat whatever I want, and still expect to lose weight
- To achieve my goals I still need to eat sensibly and healthily
So with that in mind, I’m going back to my healthy eating. And that also includes beginning to track everything I eat in the MyFitnessPal app.
