    Hey July Sleevers

    Sleeved 7/31/12, sw 260, cw 205. Down 55 lbs--from size 18/20 to 10/12 but these long stalls r killing me! Want to b under 200 soo bad! I've been bouncing between 205-215 for few months. I do eat crap every now & again but i walk 4x a week for Hour & eat alot of protein. Surgeon wants me at 198 but I think I should b 175. I'm 5'9". What is normal anyway? I feel a size 10 is the lowest I've ever been or will ever b...like Oprah, I was a 10 for 15 min in 1990.....my belly feels loose nit tight looking though:(

    First Major Stall

    I agree! I was on a stall & did this too and what my body was holding on to in starvation mode, it let it go. I needed some sugar & fat. I find the more often I eat, the smaller the meals, the more I lose. Like a fire consistently being stoked--it burns longer.
  6. I lost 10lbs the first week & I'm down 27 lbs after 25 days. So I don't think you are losing too fast. It slows after a few weeks.
