I must say that when I was on the milk diet I never weighed myself once until I was a week into it and I had lost 13lbs the second week I lost 4lb.I to was constipated and I found milk of magnesia was very gentle on my stomach and shifted what needed to be shifted, if fact even now if I have constipation it is that what I turn to and that soons sorts me out.
My advice is stop weighing yourself daily as with the increase of your fluid intake and the constipation your weight is going to be all over the place, but don’t worry if you don’t lose a lot of weight, I had a friend who did was on the milk diet and only lost 7lbs over the 2 weeks but it is the fact that it is shrinking your liver and will help the surgeon in your op that matters.

Well said Elaine, it IS the shrinking of the liver that is important as that is what helps the surgeon to do his job more easily. It’s very easy to get hung up on the numbers, even to become obsessive but it only serves to fuel anxiety if the numbers are not to your liking. I’m at goal so I only weigh myself once a month. However, I know if I’m up or down a few pounds by my clothes. If my jeans waistband is ‘snug’, I know it’s time to go back to basics: soup, soup, soup! Home made soup is so good for us bariatrics at whatever stage we are on the journey and with Carol Ball’s recipes we need never get bored 😉
