@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.
