So I’m worried today. I was losing weight everyday and now all of a sudden I haven’t lost a lb In 2 days. My wife says this is normal because she had the surgery. I’m getting discouraged but I’m following my dietitians advice.

Stop weighing yourself everyday. Try to cut back to once a week.

Everyone fluctuates all the time, I can easily gain 5 lbs in a day and by the next morning it be completely gone plus some.

Also, you will experience "stalls" at times. You won't loose weight and may even gain a couple lbs over a week or so. It also will pass.

Just stay focused and follow your plan and you will loose weight.

Best of luck to you!

yup stay off the scale... you will stop loosing weight for a bit throughout the journey. They are called stalls. typically at your 3rd week is where you hit your first one where you probably wont loose any weight for a couple weeks. Just stick to the program and it will come off

Agreed on not weighing yourself everyday. This is very normal & checking everyday will only bring on stress (which doesn't help the stall) you WILL eventually start losing again as long as you follow your plan, so might as well just relax & focus on just healing! Things will be okay

Are you tracking your calories? At a week out, you're probably not getting much over 500 calories a day. Logic says that consuming only 500 calories a day, you're going to lose weight whether you want to or not.

But, your body is freaking out, right now. It doesn't know what you've done to it. It has to adjust to its current condition and then you will start losing again.

Stalls - and even slight weight gains - are a normal and expected part of the process. If you're going to weigh yourself everyday, then you need to come to terms with this fact. The scale is going to go up and down, but the overall trend will be downward. If you're making yourself crazy with it, then switch to once-a-week weigh ins.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
