I kinda suspect I will be a slow loser anyway, but this seems a bit ridiculous. I decided to do 14-days liquid pre-op. Between 800-1000 liquid calories, 70% from protein, 15% from carbs, 15% from fat. All I eat/drink is 3 protein shakes and 3-4 bowls of non-starchy vegetable soup. Lots of crystal light and so many glasses of water that my back teeth are swimming.
I haven’t lost a single pound in 6 days.
How is that possible?
I lost 2 poundss before I started by replacing one meal a day with a shake, and then lost 6 poundss the first week. So don’t get me wrong, I’m very grateful since I cannot tell you when I last lost 8 poundss in 3 weeks (try never), but I have to admit it surprises me that I’m not losing more. I’m at a 36 BMI now, and have at least 75 poundss to lose.
Did others experience this? I’m also wondering if there’s a relationship between pre-op weight loss rate and post-op rate. If you are a slow loser pre-op, is it usually correlated with slower post-op weight?
And now I’m wondering if I’m over-thinking this whole thing .
