The video linked above shares a few tips and members are able to connect with me on Baritastic and request a food journal review.

  1. I am one month post op gastric sleeve an for almost 2 weeks havent lost any weight. I am also weak and have bouts of diarrhea. Help!!

  2. Hi Linda! I will reply in email as well but for the weakness and diarrhea I would reach out to your bariatric program! You want to be very cautious of any symptoms of dehdration especially at 4 weeks out. Stalls are VERY common at this point in the game so I would also encourage you not to fret! Stay the course and know that you will see and feel changes even if the scale is weird about it! Here is a video about weight stalls after surgery.
