The Dreaded Stall!



Recommended Posts

Had surgery on 8/13. Still slowly losing...17 lbs. When the stall hits....how long does it last?? Is there anything you can do to get out of it quicker??

Try increasing your calories for a day or two and then drop back down, it seems to trick the body, kind of like switching up exercises! I havent got the chance to try this myself but have read many postings here about this exact situation and the people who have tried this did well, good luck!

I know how you feel! I am 4 weeks out tomorrow and 2 1/2 weeks of that was a stall, but luckily the scale started moving again. I am hoping to lose 1 more pound by tomorrow to make it an even 20 but even if I don't I know the weight WILL come off eventually! And I just try to remember that I am below 200 now and will never be over that again. It perks me right up lol! Oh and like everyone here says stalls give your skin a chance to catch up. I have also read that even when the scale isn't moving, to take your measurments because most people are still losing inches.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      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!
