Nearly Two Month Stall!



Recommended Posts

I had surgery on May 24, 2012, starting out at 270 lbs at 5'10. I was on no pre surgery diet. I was only on liquids for two weeks afterwards. By July 30, I had lost 40 lbs! Unfortunately, I have been stalled ever since! I formed a few bad habits with sliders foods and laxity on exercise. I started, two weeks ago excercising as I should five days a week with either Zumba or C25K. I also stopped drinking any empty calories like Sweet Tea, or eating slider foods like Pringles. Even after that, AND taking a Fiber supplement everyday, I've YET to move. I'm probably worrying for no reason, but it is hard to see rapid weight loss come to such a sudden and long stop. I have lost two inches around my waist since my stall that started in July. Any insight, ladies and gentleman?

Hello! I was sleeved one month to the day before you. I had a similar stall in July where I stayed at 210lb for 6 weeks! That was with excercise & 800 calories/protein shakes etc...I can assure you if you keep focus you will move that scale number! Everyone has stalls...just dont lose focus and give up!

Have faith and keep up the great work! x

Thank you do much for the encouragement! I am also going to post my before and current pic. One in the silver dress is before. I am now 230. I have gone from size 20 pants, to size 16. I am blessed for my progression, so far. I just want to use my tool successfully. :)

If you are losing inches around your waist, but not losing weight, then you're muscles are gaining density from the exercise. Very likely scenario if you weren't exercising at all before.

Hey tbstacks....you look great!!!! I had a 10 wk stall 5-6th month postop (im in my 9th month now). Just started seeing the scale move.....sloooooowly, but at least downward. Hang in there....it will pass. Even when the scales didn't move, my clothes were fitting looser....so we still lose inches. That's when i decided to stop being a slave to the scale and stayed off of it for week or two at a time. I also stopped comparing myself to others....we are all different! Good luck on your continued journey.

I'm only 3 weeks out, but I made up my mind to weigh only on Saturdays. Also gives me an out when someone says how much have you lost. I can say I don't weigh until Saturday.

Pretty BEFORE and after. I'm in a stall right now , it's been about 2 weeks . I went to my NUT today and was educated on non scale victories. Trying to learn that the scale is apart of my success, my total success does not rest totally in it. I wish you the best .

I did same. Was stalled for 7 weeks when i started ... and now finally been losing pretty well for the past 6 wks. So ya I'd like it to all come off fast and easy but in reality it's not going to ALWAYS show on the scale. Now onward to lose this last 20 for sure.! Slow n steady (or NOT!) wins the race LOL.

Thank you all for the tips! I was not assigned a NUT after surgery. Only a 2 wk, 6 wk, and 6 month app! I am so thankful for the advice I find through the boards.

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
