Preop and I guess this may qualify for after as well..

How do you know when it's just Water weight you're dropping or when it's more than that?

Hard not to get excited when the scale goes down but sometimes it starts to creep back up.

I don't know that you really know other than watching for trends (for instance knowing when you retain Water or are getting ready to have your period).

The best thing to do is to stay off the scale and not weigh very often if you tend to let the numbers on the scale drive you crazy and can't deal with small weight fluctuations. Early out I only weighed at my doctors appointments.

None of us lose at a constant or steady rate. We all experience weight fluctuations, slow downs, and stalls.

I have bad PMS - mood swings, cravings, bloat, the works. I *always* gain weight right around my period so I try to stay off the scale until the last day of my period or later. Just not worth the discouragement!

Also try to consider if you consumed food that was saltier than usual the day before, or if you had a glass of wine. Alcohol and foods high in sodium lead to Water retention.

I'm a big believer in weighing every day. Because I know not getting on the scale for me gets me into big trouble.

I have a problem with Fluid retention and my weight can fluctuate up to 4 pounds at any given time. I've learnt to have a lot of patience. Eventually I go down to a newest low, so I know the weight is still coming off.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
