8 WEEKS post OP.

Great job! I struggle with Fluid as well. I get about 36 oz. Less than the 48 I was told to get.

It's such a chore to eat and get fluid!

Yes it is a chore and struggle you had surgery 3 days before me. I’ve set alarms to remind me to eat but sometimes it works . If I’m not hungry I cannot force myself to eat. Good luck It might take some time to get a routine

Wow you're looking great, what a transformation already 😁😁

I found (and still do) Water really hard to drink, even though before surgery I was a big water drinker (only thing I drank apart from coffee). These days it just 'bounces back up'! What I've found works is adding some low calorie lemon and barley, or orange and barley cordial to my water, i make it really weak and it does the trick. Really important as I train a fair bit. I'm going to keep persevering with water as I don't want to keep having artificial sweeteners.

I've been adding Crystal Light to my Water and I've been getting in my 64 oz/day

      I saw the post where you were denied the first time because you lost to much weight.  How much did you lose?  I lost 1 # my 2nd month and 6# my third month and scared to death I have screwed up.  
       
      Thanks

        I lost 11% of my body weight and they wanted me to fail to lose 10%. I even called the insurance company and asked them to clarify because the wording was confusing. I didn't know if they wanted me to lose the 10% or fail to lose the 10%. I was told to lose 10% so I did and apparently the person that I spoke to wasn't correct. But also this was in December and my company was scheduled to change to a different division of BCBS after the first of the year. So that probably played more into the denial than anything.

        I continued my monthly visits and they clearly showed that I plateaued about month 5/6 and began to regain. I originally lost from 333 to 298 and regained back up to 330 but have now lost back down to 318.

      One week post-revision, down 5 lbs since surgery day.....which puts me back under 300. VICTORY!!! Still a ways to go but I'll take every little win I can get. Feeling great other than minor abdominal discomfort.

      Breathe baby breathe
      Where does it go?
      Some of the water produced as the body consumes fat exits in the usual way, through your urine and sweat. But a 2014 study in the British Medical Journal found that most of the byproducts of fat (including all that carbon dioxide) leaves the body through the respiratory system.
      Yep, you read that right. You breathe out the byproducts of most of the fat that you burn, the CO2 from that process mingling with the CO2 produced by your lungs as they process oxygen. It's something to think about while you hit the gym or walk on a track: getting rid of fat can be exhausting, but it's as natural as breathing.
