Hi. I had my sleeve done on September 5th and have followed the post open diet perfectly. My average calorie intake is around 600 calories per day with high Protein low carb.

According to my bathroom scales I have not lost a single kg. I swear I can see that my face in particular is thinner and my clothes are looser.

Am I being impatient or should I have lost some weight by now?

If you are indeed doing your plan then the scale is lying to you.

You have evidence you are succeeding, don't let the scale screw it up or take it away.

I think it's time to treat yourself to a new scale!! It's also possible that you are still retaining IV fluids, but I think it's the scale!

Congrats on having your surgery.

Frustratingly, sometimes it’s not about the number on the scales. Did you take any body measurements? You may see changes with those measurements when you see little or nothing on the scales. Fluid retention & constipation will affect your scale weight too.

Do you keep your scales in the same place when you weigh yourself? An uneven floor surface can result in erratic numbers on the scale. New batteries will give more accurate results too.

Good luck.

You kids and your new fangled ideas.

Batteries in a scale, what will they think of next.

I’ll take the ‘kids’ comment thanks as I’m 55 - lol. Mind you my scale does do all these fancy things but I just use it to weigh myself. 😁

Thanks everyone for your replies. After I posted I tried on a skirt that I haven't been able to wear for years and it fit so I am definitely decreasing in size.

If you are working out hard, you may be adding muscle and this could be what your scale is telling you.

I had my Gastric Bypass on September 1st...at my first post-op appointment (Sept 10th) I hadn’t lose anything. Dr told me it takes a little bit to get all that extra Fluid out of your system. As of today my scale is showing 20lbs down..but I will wait until my next appt on Oct 5th for an official verdict...I don’t trust my scale lol.
