Hi

I hope everyone here is doing well

just wondering if anyone can shed any light or have any helpful comments

I’m three weeks post op today

I didn’t lose anything the first week I understand Fluid retention plays a part then

But two weeks later and I’ve only lost 6 pounds - I thought the biggest weight loss was during the first month so I’m a little disappointed but not too much

Ive never been a Water lover so I’m struggling with drinking that .. if we don’t have the full amount will it hinder weight loss ?

Ive never had a large intake of fluids even before the sleeve but did drink tea and coffee often in work

but I’m not keen on the taste of either at the moment.

Not sure why my loss is so slow

I know we’re not all the same just wondering is anyone else experiencing this such a short time post op ?

Any advice would be appreciated ...

Good luck to all starting this journey

Give it time. You most likely gained from surgery and it takes a few weeks for your body to dispose of the gas they bloated you with and the liquids they pumped you with in the hospital. I was the same way and it catches up quick. Just keep sipping, find flavors to add to your Water to help you keep drinking liquids. I too dislike water, but you can find a way to drink it.. whether its flavored, protein2o or something.. Good Luck and welcome to the losers bench.

Mine didn’t pick up until week 5(ish). Hang in there, eventually your body will figure it out and let go of those fat cells it’s trying to hold onto 👍🏻
