    Me too I don't want to stretch anything. Think it's hormones?

    I do 60 to 70 protein no more than 40 carbs, 20 fat and 40 sugar. I exercise 3-4 times a week and wear a pedometer to make sure I am moving as much as possible as I sit at a desk all day. Calories total no more than 800 When I stalled for 4 days I upped carbs and protein 10 grams and within a week and a half stall broke and then I dropped back down and weight loss sustained at 1 to 3 pounds a week since so far. Oh and water water water. Good luck let me know how you do.

    I was sleeved on 11/14. Down 64 pounds. I had a bunch of mini stalls the longest lasting two weeks. I did some research on line and everything pointed to increasing proteins, increasing calories (I was at 600 went up to 800) and finding the right carb count to keep the weight coming off. I am also exercising 3-4 times a week for 20 minutes and doing strength with 2 lbs weights to keep my metabolism going. I am sure I will have more stalls but its coming off. Keep plugging away. Do not give up. What we have gone through was hard. Whenever the scale stops I freak out thinking that's it. I have another 50 to go. That number does seem doable but I am giving myself smaller goals. Like wonderland. My mini goal at the beginning of January was to break 200 by end of January. It was 10 pounds and I thought it was a stretch. Once I saw the smaller goal it seemed more doable. But I also made a pack with myself not to beat myself up if I didn't make it. I came in a week early. My reward... Went shopping for new jeans (thrift store) I went from size 18 to size 10-12 so far depending on the type of jeans. If I can do this (and I was the biggest procrastinator and had the worst track record for weight loss) you can do this too. Sink in and put you mind to small accomplishments and goals. Maybe "I wi increase my protein by 5 grams today and tomorrow". If you meet this goal, make another one. One day at a time is the biggest mind change I am working one. Baby steps!!! And I expect someone to copy and paste these words for me when I stall again. Hehe!!!

    Loose the scale!!! I had to as I was obsessed as well. Eating before bed isn't good either as you're metabolism slows way down when you sleep. Sounds like you aren't getting enough protein. Drink a protein shake. I had a 3 week stall and added protein and water and changed up my exercise everyday. I read that your body will get used to it and slow down. Also do some weight lifting. That will help your metabolism as well. My weight comes off slow some weeks and in chunks the next. Remember as long as the scale is going DOWN be happy!!! I set mini goals. Right now I am hoping to lose 10 by end if January. I am down 5 so if I can lose the next 5 then I am going to Good Will and look for new jeans????. And if I don't well I will shoot for it still and get the jeans when I get there. (I want to desperately be under 200 and this goal gets me there. What's your goal?

    Wow who would be mean. That's awesome. I've lost 55 since 11/14. People loose at different rates. Stay focused on the good and remove the bad is my motivation these days. I would love a cook and trainer but I also think I am learning more by doing it myself. Good for you that you worked hard to get those things. Enjoy your success and your journey. I think it gets more fun every day!!!

    This is the first time EVER in my lifetime I have not only lost weight over the holidays (the scale finally budged from a 3 week stall) but also I am feeling energized, enthusiastic and ready for 2013!! I have a goal to try and loss 9 pounds by the end of January... I want to be in Onederland so badly! Is this realistic?
  12. I am about the same ad well. Veggies seem to fill me up more than the protein.
  13. I was the 14 th as well. 2 weeks in a stall. Started upping protein and water. Will see what happens.
  14. I am one month out from getting on the loser's bench with one problem... I lost the bench! My scale has not been moving, or has been swinging between two numbers for the last couple of weeks. I have just started pureed food, although I can tolerate some food not pureed. I also have been having heartburn after I eat and often not feel full within one hour of eating. I exercise 15-30 minutes a day on either my elipitcal or combining different activites. I see comments all the time about this, and I thought it would be a good idea to have a forum where those of have broke their stalls, can chime in. I realize stalls are part of the journey, how do you stay mentally in the game? Oh and by the way, I am not weighing every day either... I wait until Fridays! Thanks in advance for your input!

    I just did. Add protein and fluids. Up your exercise. Broke pretty quick once I did that. Watch you salt and days too.
  16. Increase your Protein and fluids. I finally moved the scale. My nut said that around this time the body goes into hibernation. Your weight loss slows you feel tired and your body is holding everything waiting for you to go back to old eating. You can trick it by adding the protein and Water and upping exercise. It will start soon hang in there.

    Your life and health is more important than a job. You may be surprised by your employers reaction if you say you have to go to see your doctor.

    I'm not gaining but I am flipping between 219 and 220. I think it's the dreaded 3 week stall!!!

    No loss in 3 days. Is it a stall coming on? Nothing changed. Still on liquids but started working out. Lost 18 pounds in two weeks. Is my body in shock? Water and Protein intake is dead on. Need some reassurance. I didn't think it would happen this fast.
