@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.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
