I see a difference in your body profile as well as your face/neck. I was the same way, couldn't see it, but I think I lost a lot in my back, arms, legs early on...the places I didn't measure. I think the first thing I noticed was less overhang around the bra. Even when your clothes are the same size, they probably fit more like they are supposed to. Hang in there!
It varies greatly. Most people gain as much as 10 lbs from the IV fluids over the weight they were when they had surgery, then they drop that quickly. It slows down a lot around the 3 week mark for almost everyone, so don't worry when it happens. The body takes time to catch up now and then. It doesn't mean the surgery didn't work. Your body is changing in other ways when the weight loss slows. Usually that's when you lose inches. Also, blood pressure and blood sugar can come down, along with improvements in other comorbidities. All my data was on my pc that crashed, so I can't look back. But if I remember correctly, the majority of the changes were really noticeable around the 2-3 month mark.
