BigDaddyJoe how is your Fluid intake? Also watch the sodium intake, you will hold on to Water. I am not getting all of my fluids in, however I am restricting my sodium to the bare minimum, I am averaging a pound 1/2 lb to 1lb a day.

I'm getting in 64 oz of Fluid. My blood pressure medication also has a Water pill, so I doubt I'm retaining water.

I'm exactly 2 weeks post op. I lost 9 lbs on the 1 week pre op diet' date=' then 9 days post op I was down a total of 25 lbs, meaning 16 lbs lost in the 9 days post op. I didn't weigh myself for 5 days, and weighed in tonight, and I actually gained 2 lbs in those 5 days! I'm following the nutrition recommendations to the letter, so I'm not sure what that's about. Kind of disheartening. It has been a lot of work to comply with everything, and I expected to see better results.[/quote']

It is impossible for this to be fat. Just hang in there. As fat cells empty, they fill up with Water, there is then a "swoosh" and you'll have a sudden drop. 22 pounds in 21 days is NOT a disappointment! You got this!!

Ok weight loss count, how much weight have you lost since surgery? I've lost 5 pounds. Let's see how much weight our march sleeves have lost so far.

Surgery was the 6th. I have lost 13lbs since and 44lbs all together since pre-op. Experienced my first "stuck" feeling. I was taking my pills (cut up) just a few minutes ago and I think one was a little to big. Horrible pain! I can't seem to completely pass it. I am not the "vomiting" type and I tend to hold it in. This is such a horrible feeling. AHH!

Health Wise Protein Drinks are on the Clear Liquids diet, 40 grams Protein. I buy them at the docs office but you can buy them online as well. I am now eating soft moist foods but still add one of those in with my liquids so I can get all my protein.

Are you all exercising? So far I have just been walking, but I see my weight loss the morning after I go for a 30-40 minute walk.

Hi, I just got my hiatal hernia repaired and got the sleeve surgery on March 20. I'm feeling pretty good even though I have pain between my chest. After I walk the pain tends to subside. I imagine its gases. I keep myself hydrated but I can't stand the taste of any Isopure drinks. They make me nauseous and leave me an after taste. In other words I'm not getting my Protein and that concern me. Has that happened to anyone else?
