In my opinion, if you are following the rules of the sleeve like protien, hydration, no snacking, calories, exercise, etc., then you are doing all you can, and time is your friend. I think if you are truly doing the right things, there is nothing we can do impact it. Just my opinion.

Hi I was the same way, no movement on the stall so I added more Water and an extra mile to my walk and made sure I was having my protein...

I barely ever stall. When I do, I up my calories and carbs for a day and then I'm down the next day. I'm not saying it works for everyone, but I'm 5 month out and 96 lbs down. So I'd say I'm doing alright. Good luck.

Tekara, thanks so much for sharing this. Your weight loss is awesome--congrats! My RD recommended something similar to this when I had a pre-op stall, and it seemed to work. How long do you go without seeing a weight loss before you do the higher calorie/carb day? Could you give an example of your typical daily intake and then a carb/calorie day? I would really appreciate it. Also, how often/how much do you exercise on average? thank you so much!

I am 9 weeks out I hit a stall after weighing myself daily or even twice a day for 2 weeks only losing ounces. To me it was mental but I weighed myself at 8 1/2 weeks out and down 10 more lbs. So, if you weigh yourself like I used to give yourself a brake and hopefully it will pass and if not doing more intake and then less one day sounds good because it doesnt give your body time to adjust to a certain weight. Good luck!

Thanks everyone for the responses and CONGRATULATIONS to ALL on your weightloss. Everyone seems to keep mentioning Protein. My Protein intake isn't good at all I find it impossible to consume that much. What Proteins are you guys having?

I am five months out and 72 lbs down. (32 lbs from goal weight). I'm in my third stall and think partially it coincides with being in premenopause. My body and the stalls seem to wait until it figures out what it wants to do. I increase Proteins during this time (I drink chocolate Premier Protein shake from Costco). Congratulations to everyone!

Really increasing your Water intake is the sure fire way to help drop the weight quicker and at a sufficient pace.

Good luck! You will always be losing inches even when the scale doesn't budge so no worries :)

Thanks! Yours will end soon too!

I find it so hard to drink any kind of liquids because of the whole not drinking 30 minutes before and after a meal. I get scared I'm going to stretch my sleeve so soon. My drs have really freaked me out about everything and that's why I use this app as a resource. Thanks guys! For the support and responses :)

      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!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
