Why aren't I losing weight?

I had a uterine embolization on Monday. I didn't eat all day. Barely have eaten since then. I'd normally lose a couple pounds. Is my body maybe conserving my weight to help the recuperation process?

    Shoot, I had several organs removed and barfed for 24 hrs straight. Do you think I even lost an ounce? Nooooo

    If you are consuming under 1200/1500 (I can't remember which one) calories per day, your body may be conserving

    It's also fairly common for your body to retain fluid after a surgical procedure. I've been known to show an increase in weight for a couple of weeks afterwards.

    I agree. It's probably water weight. Take care of yourself. I hope you feel better and heal soon.
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
