If you are SS and drinking your water and not taking in any diet sodas (they can cause fluid retention and insulin spikes signaling the body to store fat) then you are doing all you can. Your body is working hard right now dealing with healing and hormones and mobilizing fat. There really is nothing else you can do but what you are already doing. The number on the scale really is not a gage at all of what is happening in your body. It can not tell you bone or muscle density, fluid level, or what waste products are being broken down for elimination. It's so much more complicated then that number. Stick with it and see what they tell you. 8 lbs is really not enough for them to not do your surgery In my opinion, especially since you will likely drop that or more post surgery. Healing from a traumatic surgery like hip replacement burns energy like a locomotive engine! I lost so much while recovering from my knee replacements!
