    Hi guys,
    I am going through a three-week stall. Kinda bummed. Have lost 0 lbs- maybe +/-1 over the three weeks. I did increase my calories during this time and feel my hunger is back- I obviously dont eat as much as I used to, but I do get hungry nowadays. I wonder if this is it. Maybe all my body wants to lose is 50 lbs. I was really hoping to reach 155 lbs.
    Well, hopefully this is just a stall and not end of the road.
    Hope all the others here are having better luck.

    3wk stalls are normal. I know how hard it is to be positive about stalls, but they are just that stalls. You'll definitely lose again. I would put the scale away and not check my weight for awhile. Hope yall break your stalls soon. I know normally there is a 3month stall and we are all coming up on our 3 month so we should all start stalling soon if you're not already. I'm not looking forward to it...

    I am glad everyone is losing and staying on track! I am getting so many compliments at work about how good I look- lol.
    I am down almost 50 lbs from surgery! Down to 178 lbs. I am off Metformin and my plantar fascitiis is almost gone. This was the best thing I ever did.
    I am a little sad about not being able wearing any of the branded/ expensive clothes in my wardrobe. I am wearing the clothes I had when I was in medschool and residency.

    Hi guys,
    Wanted to thank this group for keeping me company in this journey. I have been a silent spectator but the group helped keep me on track on my sleeve journey.
    I got sleeved on 07/09. My starting weight was 226 lbs (HW of 231). As of today, I am 34 lbs down- and guess what- I am not OBESE anymore. I am finally wearing clothes that I have not touched in over 5 years from my closet (I am a hoarder lol). My waist size went from 42 to 34 cms.
    I just wanted to thank the group for helping me through the first two weeks. Honestly they were the hardest. I had to do 4 consecutive night shifts in the ICU- I could barely stand (5:00 PM to 7:00 am), three days after my surgery. This was followed by a week of service (Monday to Sunday 6:00 am to 5:00 pm). There were times when I regretted it. The pain, the shoulder aches. Trying to smile through it all. This group helped me see that there was light at the end of the tunnel. I haven't entirely gone by the book. My busy schedule meant some modifications. I had to go for a recruitment dinner with faculty members and I might have started solids sooner (GULITY!!). I also had a craving for flan made by a dear friend- she thought I was sick- and I might have eaten a bit. It took me three weeks to meet my Water goal (I just cant drink the zero calorie drinks, I really throw up- finally drinking diet snapple and coconut water- its calories, but i am still under 600- and losing everyday), I also couldn't refuse chocolate cake that my best friend made for my birthday three weeks after my surgery- plz don't judge me and I am meeting my weight loss goals. I walk 7 miles everyday and have finally begun to jog. Despite all the slips, I am here.
    Today at work, everyone commented on 'how good' I look. I havent told anybody I got surgery (I am sure people will figure out- its a hospital). But for now, I shall just enjoy myself.
    Thanks for posting- and keep posting. Its a source of encouragement for the silent readers like myself.
    I AM NOT OBESE ANYMORE- I just can't get over it. Three years of standing behind people for photos or flatly refusing to be photographed.

    Thanks for posting this Jake. I honestly never had issues before- maybe it was more fibre/fat content of food? I would go 2-3 times a day too. Now I am straining to go every day. Took Milk of magnesia once. Maybe need to clean out.

    Oh boy. I had no idea this would be an issue.

    You're not alone. Many people stray from plan a little (but you probably will not see it written about for fear of being berated)
    I also started some solids sooner than recommended. I started regular Beans in the pureed stage, I had a bite of fried dough about 1.5 weeks after surgery, a bite of cake for a going away party, etc.
    I did keep up on Protein, only breaking from plan for worthy cause but returning immediately and watching diligently at my hydration levels.
    Don't worry about whose looking and judging (except your surgeon 😂) stay vigilant in your journey and enjoy your success.
