Need advice! I'm 3 weeks post-op and haven't lost a pound since week 1 post-op.

Despite consuming liquids in post-op weeks 1 and 2 (about 100-200 calories per day) and consuming pureed foods in week 3 (~300 calories per day) per the plan, I haven't lost a single pound since week 1 post-op. I've exercised and drank as much water as humanly possible. What am I doing wrong? Should I be losing?

you're having your three-week stall a week early. Mine was weeks 2 & 3. It broke during week 4 and I dropped like 6-8 lbs practically overnight. Just stick to your surgeon's plan and the stall will eventually break. It usually lasts a week or two - although one of the members on here had hers last for three weeks. Yikes!

but don't worry - this happens to almost everyone. It'll break - just stay the course.

Ah yes, the famous "week three stall". It's perfectly normal and happens to most WLS patients; you're not doing anything wrong. You will start losing weight again soon.

Thank you for your answers. It's reassuring to know that I'm not alone in this!

That stinks but so many changes happening. I haven't had my surgery but it seems like I am losing 5-6 lbs in a day and then stall for a week then lose. It's just a pattern. Good luck!
