Not going to let it get me down, but...

That darn scale has not moved one iota since last Monday. Tomorrow will be a week! I have kept well within my calories, eating three small meals, doing some exercise (granted that could be better) but still!!! Water is okay, but again could do better. But still! Doesn't my effort at eating within WLS guidelines amount for anything?
Tomorrow is also 1 month post op. I sure thought the scale would at least move 1 pound in a week. That's all I ask!!!!
Well I won't be totally discouraged, I will keep on keeping on, eating three small meals, low fat, low carb, mostly protein. I will commit to the gym for six days this week coming up. AND drinking more water. Eventually the fat has got to move, right?
My first fill will occur on Thursday - so I will be required to be on total liquids for the day of the fill and one day afterwards, then mushies for 2 days. Hopefully that will jump start that scale moving again! I have lost 10 lbs. since surgery --- 4 weeks -- and a total of 24.5 lbs. since the presurgery diet started April 8th --- so I know I should be happy as many folks gain post surgery due to the swelling etc. Sigh. Its just when we take this drastic step to install a surgical tool -- we at least want to see some results.
Is 1 pound too much to ask for in a week (LOL).
Just venting today.
