My SGV was Feb. 15, 2011 and I lost 25 pounds the first month and then have stopped I continue to loose inches but discouraged about my weight loss ... has this happened to others?

Even with the sleeve your body is going to be resistant to losing weight. It will move again, but also keep in mind that your weight is just a number. If you're still losing inches, and especially if you're exercising more, you could be gaining muscle more than fat.

Don't get discouraged. It might even be a good idea to throw your scale into a closet for a couple weeks and not even think about it and come back to it later.

Good luck.
