I'm losing, she is stalled



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Got a stall question, more for my wife. We both had the surgery 8 weeks ago. I have lost 65lbs and she has lost 32lbs but has been stalled for about 1-2 weeks it seems. She is getting frustrated as she is seeing me continue to quickly lose but she is just hanging out. I can definately see the inches coming off of her and clothes are getting thrown out left and right. But just not sure what to tell her about starting to get the pounds moving again. Not sure if calories need to be increased or Fluid intake or what. She is getting her Protein in and doing pretty good at exercising. So if you got any help give a shout out.

Thanks!

I would have her up the intensity of her exercise. Find a challenging road with hills or go run the stairs at the local football field. I think just one to two days of high intensity would do the trick. Ive seen people go to the local park that has a slope down into the softball field and walk around it but go up and down the slope as they walk around the park. She can even do it at a slow pace just make the course a little more difficult.

Just an idea.

Everybody is so different. That's the one challenge to doing this as a couple - you have your partner to compare to. On our side it's the opposite - I'm losing faster than my husband. He isn't doing anything wrong that we can see... he exercises less than I do... but his inches seem to be changing more. Tell her to ask herself, when's the last time she was able to lose 32 lbs in 8 weeks? How happy would she be about that, if she weren't comparing herself to you? Hang in there and it will get better!! As for stalling, when I stalled around by 8 week point, I added in a Protein Drink every morning and that really helped me.

If she's throwing out clothes left and right, it sounds like she's right on track. Take her shopping. That usually makes us ladies feel better. :)

Keep up the good work - both of you!:biggrin0:

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
