I started the purée stage this week and I haven’t lost not even a ounce of weight for 8 days. I’ve actually gone up .4 ounces. What am I doing wrong? I’m having 4 ounce meals 4 times daily and I’m drinking like 50 MLs of Water a day. I’m so losing hope... I’m stuck at the weight that I couldn’t seem to pass before I had the surgery as well. Help!!!! Did anyone else experience this as well?

Wait, what? You're only drinking 50 mls of Water a day? I would say 2000 ml is a conservative minimum. Maybe I misunderstood your post. I don't think you're necessarily doing anything wrong except you need more water. Just keep working the program and keep your eyes on the prize. Everyone goes through stalls, and I mean everyone!.

It's a stall, completely normal. There are about 1001 posts about it on here, in the past month alone.

I think you have a typo on the Water amount you are drinking because that certainly isnt enough. I drink a ton of water and liquids throughout the day and i noticed i need to weigh myself in the am after I pee because all the water I drink. Maybe try that. I would also check with surgeon office and see if you are eating enough. Are you getting your Protein in?

Just broke a 9-day stall that started just before purees kicked in. Yes I threw a hissy fit or two in that time...sooo not fair when you're eating micro portions, right?! But the week 3 stall is real and you will break it, hopefully tomorrow!

Don't worry, you're too soon into the post-op process now to worry about weight. Just focus on healing. The weight will come off. Get at least 64 oz of Water each day and 60 g of Protein and just follow the program.

Obvious typo is obvious typo. I get you! It's frustrating. I'm 2 weeks out tomorrow and have only lost 10 lbs. I know that's 10 lbs lost and all but I started at a high weight (295) so I was definitely thinking it'd be more the first 2 weeks. I am following the program exactly to the T and walking 1.5-2 miles a day. It's frustrating but how can we not lose weight at this amount of calories? It's bound to happen.. but I get you.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
