Stall: I survived and beat it!



Recommended Posts

The stall arrived 3 weeks ago. I knew it'd come sometimes around the third month and it did at -25 kgs (or 55 lbs).

I wasn't that happy, I wasn't sure what advice I should follow. And I basically didn't do much, apart from increasing my daily Water.< /p>

Today the scale was down 1 kg or 2.2 lbs, not much, but still. You just have to believe it will move again, because it will.

And I can actually see amazing advantages coming from my stall: first of all my skin. It was going so fluffy I hated it but in the last three weeks it tightened and now it looks almost OK. People started noticing my weight loss. It's amazing how they didn't notice much while I was losing and now they keep asking me daily how much more I have lost (which is basically nothing!).

My hair has a break too I haven't started losing it yet and I honestly hope this stall will avoid the fall. We'll see.

Another thing I did is... relax. In the last 10 days I didn't stress over my non-weight loss. I was like "Whatever. At some point the scale will move again" and it did. I relaxed, kept going to the gym but no more often than before, I kept having my 2 days a week without carbs, I just went on with my life. I am really happy now because I feel good and my skin looks much better.

I just wanted to share my experience, because it was a positive one even if it involved a stall!

Mine arrived last month. I wouldn't call it a "stall" but I'd lose one week, gain the next, lose the next. So for the month of June I only lost 3 lbs. I'm off to a better start this month with 3 lbs down the first week. I stressed at first, but then got all logical about it. It's IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO LOSE WHEN YOU'RE ONLY EATING <1400 CALORIES A DAY!! Period. The body is just adjusting, wait it out, you'll be good.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
