I’ve struggled with obesity for over 20 years. I’ve weighed as much as 330 pounds and I’m only 5’5”. I started the process for bariatric surgery 8 months ago, starting weight at 310. I got down to 283 before surgery. I’m 3 weeks out of surgery (sleeve gastrectomy) and I’ve hit a significant plateau. I lost 15 pounds during the first 2 weeks post-op, but I haven’t lost anything in the last week. It’s extremely discouraging. I have struggled a few times with eating actual food when I’m supposed to still be on protein shakes for this week. I haven’t ate a real meal in over a month, so it’s a big mental struggle. I’m not physically hungry. However, even with those slip ups, I’ve not taken in more than 900 calories in a day.
Please pray for me that I would stay strong against the temptation to go outside of my prescribed diet progression. Please pray that God would help me get past this plateau. I earnestly desire to glorify Him with my body. Thank you and God bless.
