Still Holding At 216 ??? :(

Hey Y'all,

I can't believe it, after a day of just liquids & some veggies, I am still holding at 216 lbs (WTH??).  So, what is this all about?  I thought if you drank your diet as given, & you didn't cheat & you were only at 1000 calories, you would lose.  So what is up with this?  Most of the blogs that I have read had them losing up to 20 lbs or more on the Pre-Op Liquid Diet phase.  So why not me?  Am I doing something wrong?  Other than NOT exercising?  Am I expecting too much too soon?  Please tell me so.  :(

Aloha My Friends  :)

I know from experience that some people just don't loose on the liquid diet. When I did mine I got most of my 800 daily calories from the protein drinks and the rest from a low calorie meal. In the first day I lost 4 pounds. The following 9 days I lost like 2.5 pounds total (many days were no loss at all). I ended up going off it the last 3 days (the protein drinks were hurting my kidneys) and just eating high protein, low cal foods and lost over 4 pounds those last 3 days. My body just didn't do well with the drinks. Since my surgery 3 days ago I haven't lost an ounce. I think it might be because I'm only on liquids and clearly my body has shown that it doesn't respond well to just liquids.

Thanks Robyn, I suppose it could be the liquids, but maybe part of the reason you aren't losing right now is because of the swelling. I have read a lot of the bander's say that once the swelling went down, they started to lose?

Or was it they lost a lot until the swelling went down, then got really hungry? LOL Let me know how it goes. I will definitely be checking your site out all the time now, especially since you will only be a couple of weeks ahead of me!!

There is no rhyme or reason to it, I know. I just did liquids for 2 days after my 2nd fill and lost nothing. It can be maddening, but it will come off eventually!

Thanks Gen, I sure hope so. I will be pissed if I go through 2 wks of liquids to not lose anything!! Just because the Dr said to. I have already lost the weight he required me to lose prior to Surgery, but he also wants the Liver to shrink as well, which is why I am trying to follow this anyway. I'll keep you guys posted. Have a great weekend!! :)
