@mismeli I think it’s from all the swelling because I felt the same way. Im 6 days post op and I am finally seeing results. I am waiting to weigh myself at my 2 week post op at my doctors office but I feel the weight loss today. My stomach is smaller and my XL shirt is bigger on me today. I think our body just needs to adjust. give it a week and you’ll see. I was getting discouraged too.

Give it time. You get pushed so full of fluids at the hospital that its easy to gain 10-15 pounds just from that! It'll start coming off fast, at least it did for me!

I am feeling good - out of the house today for the first time. PCP visit to follow up to surgery today. I took the abdominal band off yesterday but had to put it back on - going to need the support for a while. 1 week out and I think the swelling is going away.

My weight was 8 pounds higher when I got home from the hospital than it was before I went. Today I am 2 pounds less than my before surgery weight.

I had my surgery on 11/14. It's nice to meet all of you. It took a few days, but I started losing weight again a couple days ago. It really is frustrating.

I had an early Thanksgiving dinner for my son since he was visiting from Germany. I put a little bit of mashed potatoes,Bread stuffing and Cream of Mushroom Soup in my Bullet. It tasted great!! I could smell the Thanksgiving in my soup bowl. Of course its not the same but I was satisfied.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      Good Morning! Today is the first day of my liver shrinking diet!  It is hard being in the office and in my classes thinking about my old habits. But surgery is so close so can't complain too much! !10 days away!! Here we go.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
