    How long was your stall, i am going to push myself on the water intake? Calories is a bit hard cause im still on puree stage and not everything really goes down well. Hoping when i see the doctor they allow me to go to the next stage and start working out. Just feels like this stall is going to last forever 😭😭

    January surgeries?!

    Hey All, so i had vsg on 1/22, and for the first 14 days weight was just coming off i believe i lost about 13-14 lbs, prior to the surgery during liquid pre-op I lost about 23lbs. But the past 16 days i have not lost a pound i am either at the same or it goes down/up one...and now my monthly vistor is coming so Im expecting a gain😭😭 not sure what im doing wrong i go in for my first month check up on Wednesday so im hoping they clear me to go to the gym. I am getting my proteins in on most day, water intake is a struggle still, before the surgery i was getting 72 oz day during preop and now i can barely get in 40 oz. Just dreaded this stall and scared that it wont end...i am sticking to 400-450 calories a day, dont really have an appetite which is great but eat to get the proteins in. Just discouraged was hoping to be farther along. Not sure what to do

    Had surgery on 1/22, not feeling the greatest, barely getting my fluids in, heartburn or gas is the worst...i was able to eat a 3rd of 4ounce low fat cottage cheese, had to add protein to my water can barely get 24 ounces in a day. But i do feel a bit better than the day before. Not used to sleeping on my back so its hard. Trying to avoid taking the pain killers. I know its supposed to get better soon just hoping sooner than later

    So i cant believe this and i had to weigh myself multiple times but i literally have dropped 10lbs since Monday, started liquid diet this week...cant believe it. I stll have 11 more days to go till my VSG, and i cant wait. I thought this was going to be horrible even impossible to do liquids for 14 days but its not that bad. Actually getting more than 64oz of water a day which indont think i have ever done.
