I lost 29 pounds in the three months before surgery, from 396 to 367. Much of that was in the two weeks prior to surgery. Surgery date was 12/13/2012 at 367#. Today is 1/2/2013 and I weigh 347#. It took a week after surgery to lose the water weight I gained in the hospital, but losses have been steady since then, though I expect some sort of stall imminently. I am eating pureed foods in small amunts, and having trouble getting in more than 2 protein shakes per day, and really struggling with daily water intake.

My priorities are 1) getting my fluid intake up, 2) getting my protein intake up (it is supposed to be 130g or more and I typically don't make half that yet) 3) walking more.
