Cubankitten9 Posted September 30, 2005 Report Share Posted September 30, 2005 I had my surgery on 9/16 with Dr. Ortiz, and I have been RELIGIOUS with the liquid diet... I spoke to Dr. Martinez on the 7th day after surgery and he told me that I could begin to add yogurts and liquid protein because I got very dizzy while driving... ever since day 8, the diet has not been as hard... easy, no, but not impossible... So 2 weeks to my surgery day and I go in and weigh myself and Ive lost 1.5 lbs... yes, you read that right! To say that I am beside myself with disappointment is an understatement... I figured that in a best case scenario I'd have lost like 10 lbs... in a worst case maybe 5, but a pound and a half???!! I find it hard to believe that water retention could account for a lack of weight loss... most people I've read on this and other boards show more of a weight loss than this. I had been weight training 2ce a week and spinning 4 times a week for the 18 months prior to surgery, so I know that even when I just do cardio, I begin to build muscle... so I havent been doing any cardio since surgery because I didnt want muscle building to interfere with seeing a difference on the scale... at least not at the beginning. Plus, I usually take a break from all exercise for one month a year to give my body a rest, and I figured that this would be a good month, then I'd go back to it when I begin back on solids. I am beside myself and wonder what the hell is wrong with me... Im going to put a call into the doctors office once they open today, but at the moment I feel completely deflated.
