My surgery is about a month out. I’ve been working really hard to lose some extra weight I had before surgery. I keep reading about girls gaining weight after surgery, and having to stay out of the gym for at least 6 weeks is making me pretty nervous about how much I’ll put on. Is this something that happens to everyone? Does anyone have any tips on staying active while on restrictions?
Diet is key. Just be obsessed as possible with vegetables & good meat proteins. Stay away from carbs/fast food. Stick with water. I’m about four months post op. I’ve gained five pounds I’d say. It feels way more. It’s pretty stubborn. But, my kids make it a bit hard to go daily to the gym. Luckily, school starts soon though!! Haha Kayla MarieReply
Like Kay said, diet is key. Its inevitable that you will gain a few lbs from swelling and bloat right after surgery, but it will go away after about a week or so. I did not step on the scale for the first week. As long as you maintain a healthy diet you probably wont gain any actual weight.... except for the weight of those new boobies hah! Pre op i did HIIT classes 5x a week and ate quite often now that i cant do anything I dont really get hungry often. Try to stay mindful of only eating when youre hungry, but easier said than done when youre laying around watching TV all day lol.Reply
