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.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
