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.

      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.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      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".
