What's going on? Scale is going in the other direction



Recommended Posts

I know I probably shouldn't be getting on the scale every morning, but what can I say..I am post 16 days out and I have noticed the scale isn't going down but up. 3 days ago it creeped up a minimal amount..less than a pound..I didn't stress then..but since the last 3 days I am up 3 lbs. needless ro say..now I am thinking I have done something wrong here. It took several days to climb up the additional pounds but I am here. Is this normal? I am only in phase 2 of liquids. I start on mushies in 7 days and am wondering if the scale will continue to climb with normal food...if you have any thoughts , or similar experience Please post.

Ahhh yes the good old climbing up the scale thing. . .me too, I was doing really well and guess what? the heat in Texas started and I started to swell and retain tons of fluids even on my diaretics (lasix and amiloride) I thought at first it was because I've been grazing here and there, but nope it was the heat. . . so if you are susceptible to gaining Water weight during the hot seasons, this could possibly be the answer. . .don't worry, just cause we're gaining some weight isn't the end of it, just look how far we have come! Wow, I'm ok with some weight gain. . .at least I'm not 350 anymore! Good luck!

I guess your right, although I haven't been out in the heat but very little lately. Non-th-less, it does suck! makes me feel like Im missing something.then you know how the old mind comes into play..ha! you were drinking more than the alloted ounces per 10/15 min. your pouch is stretched..I could go on and on..but then I have to catch myself and ease up..knowing good and well it is a process.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
