Stress also makes the body hold on to weight, so try not to give yourself additional stress while your body is already stressed from the op. You have to be kinder to yourself and have faith that it will happen when your body had healed better, it's such early days for you yet xx

Try to keep sipping water and move around as much as you can as it all helps with the weight loss. I am sure things will get better very soon, just try and be patient even though it can be very difficult when you don’t understand why the expected weight loss has not happened but it will, all in it’s own good time. x

You definitely need to drink more that will help with the weight loss, don’t do to much at the gym though as it’s early days. You could try minced beef with grated LF cheese, scrambled eggs, weetabix, crustless quiche, fish in sauce is great (the boil in the bag type is what I used), I loved warmed up corned beef with LF grated cheese, protein porridge, I found the tinned mince beef good as well, cauliflower cheese, these are just a few things I’ve just pulled from my diary xx

I know im not getting enough water in me, somtimes 500ml sometimes 2-300ml i do have other things to drink like a milky coffee or a ovaltine, i got over the initial disappointment of the non weight loss for a while but now its depressing me, i could of lost more doing it myself, I really could , I am now 4 weeks post op 1st 1lb down...BUT i know 9lb of that is because i has to go back on my water retention tablets I okayed it with the hommerton as my legs fill and get so tight they are sore), the 1st day i lost 5lb then the 2nd 4lb now they just keep my legs from filling and dont interfere with weight loss.. so I have really only lost 6lb in 4 weeks... its stupid I am at the hospital next week, I cant see any other posts about not loosing weight after surgery, wer not for a month post op.... i will definatly drink more water i will make that my mission.. but i cant see it making that much difference... has anyone else had this problem

Is it foamies Hun! I have had that twice First time was tuna OMG was dreadful red hot pain and really uncomfortable I brought up some foam and the 2 teaspoons of tuna I had and was fine after that. Second time I ate a spoonful to quickly without thinking and bang foamies again ( that will teach me ).

As for the weight slow and steady hun it will happen I’ve not had massive losses at all but still lost 3 stone in 3 months and the inches lost have been fab. Please don’t be despondent all will come good just concentrate on getting those low cal fluids in xxx

The amount you can eat varies from person to person but 100% definitely drink more fluids, it honestly does help, there have been a few posts on here about sweetners that can cause water retention (On Sarnies thread I believe) it includes a link to the newspaper article too, it makes for good reading, I use stevia sweetners in at least half of my daily water after reading it. But please drink more, it will be interesting to see what your team say next week xx

Drink lots of water so that your body can flush out, try for at least 1 litre per day sipping. Try bone broth to get some protein in. The lactose free milk and yogurts will be soothing and also nutritionally good for you. Also are you able to walk for 30minutes at a time? This will get your system active. I hope that helps.
thank you.. i have been getting a litre of water down since this post, and i am looking at trying some protien in me i am stuck on what to have .. think i will take a look at the recipe forum for some ideas.. thank you for the advice its much appreciated.x
