    Yeah I had the week 3 stall and it lasted 3 weeks. I remember losing 1.2 pounds during that time and it seriously messed with my head.
    And sadly I don’t get the benefit of a fast drop afterwards. Mostly I feel like Sisyphus with that damn boulder.

    I’ve heard that 3 months out is a typical stall-point for a lot of people and I’m seeing my typical 2-2.5 pound/week come to a screeching halt this last week.
    Losing 1.4 pounds in 8 days is almost freaking me out.
    Okay, so it’s not truly a stall because something came off, but I’m still over 50 pounds shy of getting close to goal weight.
    I mean, I’m 5’7” and I’ve got a goal weight of between 140-145 so it’s not like I’m shooting for some unrealistic low number.

    Ahh well..... if it does end up slowing way down for a few weeks I’m going to fight through it like the fighter I am.
    I mean going back to the before time isn’t an option, IMO

    I had my surgery in March I'm about 8 weeks out. I can start to see the loss. Just wish it was going a little faster. I hope the slow lose means no lose skin.

    Thank you, You look amazing as well Neely. I can’t wait to be able to tolerate food a little better. I was drinking 4 bottles a Water a day but since I’ve had real food I do well to get 3 in a day.

    I’m 7 weeks out. I’ve lost 49 lbs so far. Can’t eat hardly anything. I’ve been stuck same weight for 3 or 4 days. Beginning to think I need to try and get more calories in since I’m reading it has helped others.

  14. Thanks

    I got the Thai chili, Fluffy Chix mentioned something else with Thai seasoning and it sounded good to me. Got some diet mayo in the fridge, maybe I'll try it this weekend.

    @sallie Lindsey Thats awesome! Nice to have someone who started the post op journey on the same day
    I'm still finding it somewhat difficult to make myself believe I finally had the surgery. I had thought about it for years and years until finally making up my mind to go through all the requirements late last year.

    You know it’s so funny I am still on auto pilot with my eating and so forth. When my husband asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday immediately I was like Ruth Chris. Then I realized... what’s the point? I think we’re still going to go out to dinner tomorrow night and I will just split with him!
    It’s been a major adaptation for him too because he was like a wild animal with his plate when I first started asking him to split with me. You would’ve thought it was his last meal on earth. Now that we’ve been out to eat a few times he can tell it’s such a waste for me to order a whole meal for myself. So I think he is starting to release the death grip on his plate and just order a little larger portion and share.

    Okay guys.
    I HAVE to post this because I’m sooooooooo freaking excited I can’t stand it.

    My big goal for April was to weigh under 200 pounds and I’ve got to admit I was absolutely sure I would miss it by a couple pounds because I lose so slowly.
    Friday morning I was weighing 202 and I was afraid to get on the scale so soon, but since this is the last day in April I just needed to know.


    Anyway, this happened and it’s the lowest I’ve weighed since 2005 when I hit the upper 180’s for about 5 minutes.
    Can’t wait to actually hit the goal of weighing under 186 (the lowest I’ve weighed since 1996), but that will have to be a goal I set for June. 🤣🤣
