157 this morning. Only ~1300 calories yesterday, trying to balance out the prior day's overage a little.

@Mountaindewed - an anecdote for you. I woke up early went downstairs, went to the bathroom and weighed. 158. I usually can't get back to sleep when I wake up early, but it was still close to 5 and I was pretty tired so I tried and was able to get a couple of more hours. I went down to take a shower and needed to go again. I did then weighed again. 157. I don't think I peed a full 16 ounces; I think the elimination through exhalation is uneven. Anyway, that's how quickly a pound swing can happen sometimes. If I had gone ahead and stayed awake at 5, had some coffee and yogurt and went to the bathroom an hour or two later, I wouldn't have thought it was from yesterday.

I stuck to the 1200 calorie diet plan today.I had porridge oats in soya milk with one strawberry and blueberries for breakfast.Lunch was chicken and sweetcorn soup.Dinner was a 5 ounce salmon fillet,sweet potato,peas,broccoli and french beans,with a little olive oil and lemon,baked in the oven.I don't feel hungry and there are no cravings for sweet stuff,cakes,chocolate,ice creme etc.It is really important I do this as they found protein in my urine which means my kidneys are at risk.So day 1 of the diet went well,so far so good.I will take it one day,1 hour at a time.

I was 147 today. I was so frustrated I actually shoved the scale against the wall with my foot. Maybe itís a plateau. I donít know.

Hey Mountaindew,I know it is frustrating not to see what you want to see on the scales,but you are doing ok really,a pound or two out isn't really a big deal.I am 317 pounds and I want to get to 140 pounds so I have to lose 177 pounds so that is way out.Just be patient and yes fluids can vary the weight up and down so that is annoying but at least there are no massive swings for you in the wrong direction,eh?

I thought I had already posted today. My weight is 177. I have consumed about 2100 calories. After midnight, I had a cinnamon and sugar bagel, so I will count this toward my calorie count for the rest of the day.

PS I am having problems with new software, so I may have double posted.

156 this morning. Inflammation is finally waning, I think. I did end up with only 1228 calories yesterday, still making up some ground for Friday's overage but that didn't cause a drop of a pound; less fluid did. I will eat more normally today.

155 this morning, after going over goal yesterday but probably still below maintenance. Another pound of fluid dropped. I am back to pre-surgery weight after 11 days.

I am slowly coming to realise that this change in diet to healthy foods has to be a permanent lifestyle change.I weighed today I am 21 stone 7 pounds that is 136 kilos,301 pounds.It doesn't matter whether I lose the weight slowly or fast since my food choices have to remain healthy whatever.I saw myself in the mirror at the opticians today,my body is massive,my arms are enormous,I never saw myself as so fat,I guess I know now that I am not just overweight,I am obese,morbidly so!

Sunday and yesterday were off days for me. This afternoon I weighed myself at 4:30PM and I was wearing a heavy hoodie and jeans. I weighed 155. I took off that and I weighed 152. So Iím probably more like 149-150.

Today I had about 1200 calories. It was probably a little bit less than that though.
