I am 3 weeks out of surgery now and in the last week I've gained 2 pounds back! This is very frustrating. I've been eating all the right foods (I am on pureed currently) and getting all my protein, but I do have trouble getting 1000 calories in. I have been walking every day except for yesterday. Yesterday it was rainy, and my left foot has been hurting, so I skipped my walks. Excuses I know, but I really didn't think it would result in my GAINING a pound.
I had lost 13 pounds after surgery, but after the first 2 weeks I gained one of the pounds back, and held steady at the weight for a week until I gained another pound this morning. I know this is a time of healing and not weight loss since I don't have a fill yet, but if I am eating roughly 1000 calories of nutritious food how is it going to get better with a restriction???
I'm guessing at this point that my body is just adjusting to everything. I'm not used to this because in the past when I've been on track I've lost weight. I fully expected to hit plateaus on my journey, but not this soon!
Ok, gotta go walk now. Don't want to "find" anymore of the weight that I've "lost"!
