I had my gallbladder out this past Jan. and as soon as I was able to I begin working out and eating right. I have had success so far. Prior to having it out it seemed so difficult to loose just one pound, no matter how I ate, what I ate etc... Now I believe having my gallbladder in was the problem
I had mine out Leap Year Day. I gained 23 lbs, I blame my lack of exercise. I stopped exercising when I connected exercise to inflammed gallbladder back pain.

WEight loss is not a linear process. This is why weighing daily can show you some surprising results! Because it takes 3500 calories to make a pound of fat, you likely did not gain 2 lbs of fat in two days. It's probably water retention, from sodium, hormones, lack of sleep, any numbre of factors could be at play.
May I ask why you chose 1200 calories? If you are trying to lose 60 lbs, and are working out an hour a day, then 1200 calories is likely not enough for you.
I gained 30 pounds after I had my gallbladder out. I'm not exactly sure why. I finally had enough and quit eating refined sugar and carbs, switched to whole grains and more healthy foods and weight started to drop off. I wish you luck. I know it's hard.

I never put 2 & 2 together about my weight gain and having my gallbladder out over a year ago. Now I am really starting to think that it is the culprit. Had it removed November 2012 and put on 60lbs. At 1st I wasn't trying to lose weight, but now I am. One day I get on the scale and lose 1.5 lbs. Two days later I get on the scale and gain 2 lbs. Since January I have limited my calorie intake to 1200 daily and I am faithfully exercising at least an hr a day, either Zumba or gym treadmill or elliptical. Has anyone else had this problem?? Because it is VERY discouraging!!
