  1. I saw my nutritionist and surgeon today for a one month follow up. Neither seemed concerned about the fact that I haven't lost in a while. They said I was doing all the right things, just stick with in and the loss will resume. I am not weighing nearly as often now, so I don't worry about it so much.
  2. I haven't had hiccups more than usual (I have always had a little hiccup problem). Everything I read and everyone I talk to says the stall is normal, just be patient. Easier said than done. I guess when I get past the first stall I will feel better about any future ones. For now I think the only thing I can do is drink lots of Water and get enough exercise. You sound like you're doing great.
  3. I was sleeved on August 17, 2011 (at New York Presbyterian by Dr. Gregory Dakin). In the first 2-1/2 weeks I lost 34 pounds. I started at 407 and lost 20 before surgery, so 54 lbs down from my max. The surgery went well and there were no complications (so far and I hope it stays that way). A few days ago the weight loss stalled and I have lost nothing. I read that this is normal, so I find that encouraging. I started back to work a couple of days ago and I am finding it hard to drink enough Water since I get distracted by work. I know that it is unlikely I will lose at the rate I did right after the surgery, but I am impatient for the pounds to start dropping again. How often do you weigh? I'm sure weighing every day adds to my discouragement.
