You should be drinking 64 ounces a day. 4 ounces of Fluid per HOUR. I think you have misunderstood your post surgical instructions and are getting yourself DANGEROUSLY dehydrated. Please seek help with urgent care immediately, or at the very least, start drinking 4 ounces of liquid per hour every single hour.

If you have an emergency number, call it and ask for clarification.

I've upped it to 6 ounces but when I take the Protein I'm told that's it for the hour. I try to get started early in the day but it never seems to stop me being thirsty. ( living in Florida where it's constantly warm/ not) probably doesn't help ☹

How many ounces of fluids per day total are you drinking?

If you're getting 64 ounces in per day, that's good...you might need more fluids if it's very hot there. You should ask about this.

When is your next recheck with labs? Are you diabetic, by any chance?

If I were you...I would err on the side of drinking extra Water for hydration until you can discuss your thirst with your doctor.

At a week out...I was told it was ok to drink all the water I wanted as long as I was sipping and not gulping.

You may need extra water in that heat.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
