@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.

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
