Hanging in the hospital after getting sleeved yesterday. Things went well. My only surprised is that when they weighed me this AM I gained 6lbs from when I came in yesterday AM.

i have stents in my heart so might be here another day- hopefully not.

up and walking and feeling good

Congrats and welcome to the club. Dont worry about the weight gain. You are filled with IV fluids from surgery. Everyone has a little gain in the first few days post op. Also, i was in the hospital 3 days and 2 nights (standard for my surgeons practice) so just enjoy the time that other people are paid to take care of you.

Again, congrats!

Congrats! I'm having mine on 7/1. Now that I know they may weigh you before you are leaving, I'm going to close my eyes..I don't want to know. Each time I've been in the hospital, if I'm on an IV, I swell up like a balloon.

I got to come home today

I ate 6 oz of broth before i left hospital. Working toward liquid and Protein goal today.

I took a little nap, but am gonna polish this 20oz water bottle in about an hour. Too fast?

64oz of fluids and 60g of protein seems like a hefty goal

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
