Hello, everyone! I'm just checking in to see how everyone's doing? I lost almost 7 pounds the first week post op, and this week? ZERO! What is up? Now, I'm no longer on the liquid diet, but I'm starting to panic a little. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Help!

Hang in there, everyone stalls or goes through an adjustment period. I am 5 months post op and I've been stalled since October.

I'm in the middle of mostly a 3 week stall. I'm 0-3-0 for the last 3 weeks. It's going to happen. Mostly your body is adjusting, and you are going into starvation mode. My nut is on my case to eat something every 2 hours, and I am trying but mostly just forget to do so. It will turn around. Just hang with it.

Stalls are normal and they happen, don't worry, try to eat what you can, as much protein as you can and keep drinking liquids. It will pass when your body figures out that you're not starving. Good luck!

Lydia,

I'm having lots of luck with greek yogurt for protein. I've been going over my 60 grams of protein daily, while staying below 1000 calories a day. I do one shake, and then go for tuna, shrimp, and greek yogurt for the main source of protein. And the scale is moving in the right direction again!
