I was going to quote-post a million times responding to everyone but that would be annoying so... thanks everyone! Haha. As far as the Protein, I am very, very low. I average 27g a day. Yikes, I know. My goal is supposed to be 63-72g (if I remember correctly the upper end). With the soy shake a day I am hitting right under 60g... so, I really do need to keep it up. I simply can't live on 27g of protein.

I'm glad I'm not the only one to have these nutty thoughts of being "the only one to stay stuck at 20ish pounds". LOL. I look forward to the coming months and hope within 18-24 months I can reach my goal... I realize most people hit it sooner, but I am TRYING to be gentle with myself.

[emoji23][emoji23]...yes, safer. I actually went to Meritus in Hagerstown. I can't believe you're so close! Do you have Instagram? I'm hrsnjs on there too...if you care to follow! They have a support group at Meritus but with my schedule I'm never able to make it. I don't know anyone personally who's had WLS...would be nice to know someone local.

Just an interesting anecdotal thing...I've been having some issues and having my bloodwork tracked...

My Protein and albumin are both down in this last couple of months--they are both just barely on the low side of the curve in the "low" area--not anything to seriously worry about, BUT. I reduced my Protein from 70g to about 55-60g over that time frame, consisting of dense, lean "complete" protein sources. Since low albumin is "associated" with greater all-cause mortality, I'm gonna be working to up my protein to around 70g/daily again. I just got that result today. So today is Day 1. :)

While the A/G ratio test does technically test for blood Protein, it is not a measure of adequate protein intake. High or low protein levels are signs of a disease or disorder.

Will a high protein diet raise my total protein level?

No, increasing your intake of protein will not increase your total protein test result.
