Dehydration would be the obvious cause f you are barely doing 16oz some days. You really need to push the fluids. Dehydration is the number 1 cause of WLS patients going to the emergency room. Talk to anyone who has been there it is not a fun or cheap experience. if you have to set a timer to remind yourself to drink then do that. For me in the early days I had a timer go off every 10 minutes to remind me to drink. When I have bad weeks yes I do get them I will go back to my timer.
Seriously if nothing else get you fluids.

I'm having to change my drinking habits as the cold weather is coming on. I'm not wanting ice water and am having to make myself drink hot decaf or herb tea to keep fluids to 100 oz a day.
Never a "day off" from doing the right things after bariatric surgery!!
