Pre and post opp I lose weight like a ladder. Lose 4 lbs. gain 1 back, lose 2 lbs. stall lose 1 lb. gain 2 back, etc. I look at long term trends instead of my daily weight. Water retention or constipation could result in a small gain like that.

It's just normal Water and weight daily fluctations probably. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Yes, I gain and lose sporadically with a general downward trend. So for example, I was 242.6 a few days ago, the next day 243, then 242.8, this morning I am down to 241.2. This is a typical pattern for me.

      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.

      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".
