So I am 2 1/2 weeks post op. between my 2 weeks pre op diet and first week post op I lost 18 lbs. it'll be 2 weeks on Wednesday since I lost 18 lbs and I've only lost 1 lb! What's going on?!! I'm so discouraged !!

Don't worry!!!!! The exact same thing happened to me. I asked my surgeon he said it was 100% normal. The body loses weight, then it needs to stabilize at that weight before it starts losing again. I have started losing again now but I didn't for about 2 weeks. You will start again too don't worry

Drink your Water. And if you can realize that the healthiest way to lose weight is 1 to 2 pounds per week - you will be so much happier. You will lose it faster - but if you set your mind up to be happy with 1 or 2 pounds per week- your state of mind will be better. I promise!

Congratulations, your body is normal and just like everyone else's! You will not ever lose 18lbs every week. Bodies react differently and some people lose consistenly and some people have bigger weeks and smaller weeks. Everyone has stalls. At first, everyone freaks out because of their stall. This is just one of many as you begin this journey. It'll pass and another one will hit a few weeks/months after, and it'll pass too. Just keep following your post op plan and have faith that the tool you chose will help you get the results your desire!

I am 5 weeks post op tomorrow and I had a 3 week stall. I thought I was going to lose my mind and then suddenly this week I lost 8 lbs. Just be patient. I knew I would have these stalls but they are so annoying. Take it easy on yourself. It will happen.

Thank you! How steady is your weight loss now that it started again?

It changes all the time for me. Sometimes I lose 5lbs a week sometimes 2lbs. But I'm always losing everyday so I'm happy. You should expect to have stalls, pretty much everyone does and my surgeon and nut say its very normal

I lost 10 lbs pre-op week and then 16 the week after surgery. I then stalled. Picked up my Water intake and finally lost a lb this week. Most people state they get a stall at week#3, but I got mine at week #1. Hopefully things will pick up shortly for me.

I am 21 days today, last week lost zero and even gained 8 ounces, I upped my Water yesterday to 40 ounces and had ground beef for first time, lost 1 pounds 4 ounces this am. going to eat the exact same thing today and see what happens, I hate the scale, but I do feel smaller and 2 people mentioned my face looked slimmer. so I am happy about that. I started soft foods yesterday. Good luck

Yes my clothes are feeling much better and I can notice myself getting smaller. I just obsess about the number on the scale. Idk whether or not to start exercising yet. I will be 3 weeks post op on Friday.

Anyone know when I can start going on bike rides? yea... I'll ask my Dr, but I was curious what others were told.

Took my bike to the shop yesterday for a tuneup. I'm ready to roll!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
