You were right! I lost 2.2 pounds 😃 so I’m now down to 247.6. I wasn’t expecting anything especially since my period started but it moved I’m so happy!

Glad you’re losing! I’m 2 weeks post op and not really losing at all. I got rid of all of the 10lbs water/gas weight I gained post op but have only truly lost 3lbs so far. Trying not to be discouraged by the scale not budging 😩🤦🏽‍♀️

I'm sure we'll experience a loss soon? We have to! I'm sure our bodies are just in starvation mode right now. What is your diet like right now? I'm curious about everybody. I'm feeling a little more hungry today as I haven't had much food at all post-op. I do fill fast though. I'm planning on adding another Protein Shake per day to the below:

Water - 45ish ounces per day - trying to drink as much as possible

Breakfast - 1 Premier Protein shake

snack - sugar free pudding

lunch - maybe like a 3/4 cup Creamy Soup - strained

dinner - 2 oz. low sugar Yogurt

Did you do measurements? Honestly that’s the only thing that kept me semi sane when the scale wasn’t moving

As for Water I’m still struggling to do even 30 oz

As much as I used to obsessively measure myself, I not only forgot to do preop measurements but I haven’t measured myself at all! I probably really need to. Thanks for the reminder to do so!

@Jessbear345 - your tuna and soup sound yummy! I'm excited to graduate to puree's in a couple days.

@ALFxRNY - I feel you on the stall. I E-Mailed my doctor's office to see if they could send me my measurements they took in the office because I too have not been measuring. Great tip and reminder though because although the scale is not moving, I do feel a wee bit thinner. Jeans are a little loose today.

I did measurements and got sad because they were bigger measurements than what I took when I was in the 300s. I don’t know what is going on with my body. My clothes are a little looser but I’m not really seeing changes. I go back to my surgeon’s office early August so I’ll try to give my body time to adjust

@ALFxRNY - my follow up is in mid-August too. You must be holding on to some Water weight. I'm sure you'll see a loss soon. You're nice and tall so everything is probably just trying to adjust around to the shock. Awesome job on the 35 lbs. already!!! What are your meals like right now?

Well 35 from when I first started my journey. Post op (including the 10 lbs I gained) I’ve lost about 14 lbs. I still look very swollen though. Hopefully the walks will help. I’m just starting incorporate purées this week. My diet was just 60g of Protein (2 shakes a day) and 30-40 oz of Water. Sometimes I’d have a little broth to cleanse my palette of the sweetness of the shakes. As of yesterday I have incorporated a little bit of tuna (very tiny serving sizes) twice a day. And cool that we both have August follow ups. How is everything going on your end?

@ALFxRNY - You're doing everything you need to be. I keep telling myself that too. All we can do is be patient. I bet the walks will definitely help. Good job on getting in all that Protein. I think I'm going to try tuna on Sunday. Sounds yummy. I'm doing better. I think I passed a kidney stone this week. I'm still sore on the left side but it feels better today than yesterday. Once I feel the muscles have healed on the left, I'll be eager to begin some light working out. Right now, it's just daily walks/strolls.

A kidney stone! Wow! And I still have the soreness on the left side of my stomach too. I more over feel it if I move too quickly. Hope you feel even better soon and that you enjoy your tuna Sunday 😉
