    Some people actually gain some weight after surgery bc they give you lots of IV liquid to keep you hydrated. But after a week you'll probably start losing.

    Now your body is recovering from surgery so you may not be losing weight at first. My suggestion is to hide your scale for a month and just concentrate on learning about your new lifestyle. You will be amazed.

    You will stall around 3 weeks too, no clue why, as you will hardly be eating anything. It makes no sense but happens to most of us. So if you wait for a month to weigh yourself you won't be stressing about these little times where you stay the same or even gain. Or maybe wait until your first follow-up with your surgeon.

    Take your measurements now. I did that about once a month and it was really fun. Now when I see how big I used to be it is unbelievable. I also ONLY weighed on Mondays and journaled the date and weight. (Your weight will fluctuate day to day, so weighing daily isn't really accurate.). Most weeks I lost, but a few times I stayed the same or gained. I made my goal in about 9 months.

    This works. I promise. Get excited and don't worry.

    Haha. Everyone loses at their own pace. You will lose. Just have faith and follow the program.
