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.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.

      My life is WONDERFUL
      JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      SO HAPPY I GOT THE SLEEVE!
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.
