How I broke my latest stall



Recommended Posts

I am 7 months out and down 86 pounds WOOHOO. What a great new life I have been given!

I found I have been so focused on just Protein that I wasn't getting enough veggies. I am lazy. I admit it. I didn't want to chop up the veggies every day.

I saw something on Pinterest (Such an addicting site) and tried it. It worked great!!

I took canning jars and made salads for the week. I added chicken or shrimp, eggs, cheese, and lots of veggies. They were fresh every day! Loved it.

I found an awesome new store. It only sells olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I tried their best sellers quite sure I wouldn't like it... Chipolte olive oil and Dark chocolate balsamic vinegar. OMG It is awesome on salads!!

This broke my latest stall and put me in Onderland!! When I stall it is for a long time and then all of the sudden I will lose 5-7 pounds. crazy!!

I stall often and I no longer worry about it. It will all come off eventually. I know my body is busy adjusting to my new eating styles.

Heartfelt congratulations! What an inspiration.

BTW, I have seen those Pinterest canning jar salads--but the one I saw requires using a food Saver to keep the salads fresh. Can you actually just put them in a canning jar and seal them up? Any other tips?

I only used the canning jar. They were very fresh each day. Loved it! The only problem i had was some of them had too much in them. With our small stomachs you don't need a lot in them! I can eat more now that I am 7 months out but still not a full big salad. My hubby usually ended up finishing mine or I would save it and eat it later. I now make smaller ones :)

Dressing is added when you eat them, right?

oh, right, with stuff in between that and the lettuce to keep the lettuce from getting soggy, right?

Yep Lettuce goes on top so it does not get soggy. This is the order I put mine in.. dressing (next time I will just add it when I eat it) meat, egg, carrots, cucumber, broccoli, Tomato, cheese, lettuce/spinach.

Did not get at all soggy and tasted wonderful!!

I also wondered about the egg but it was just fine! I sliced it before I put it in too.

I love salad but sometimes I'm in too much of a hurry to make it. Will definitely try this; I think if I had it already assembled in the fridge, I would eat more salad! Thanks!

Are these salads in addition to full Protein per day or in place of?

I always get my full Protein in every day. I add a lot of protein to my salad. chicken, egg and cheese. I check my protein intake after dinner and if I have not had enough protein I add a Protein Shake. I usually have enough protein but was hardly eating any veggies.

Sometimes I break a stall with a high calorie day. I usually stay in the 800 calorie ballpark, and once a week or so I let loose up to about 1300 calories. Seems to keep the stalls away.

Any advice for someone in an early stall - 3 weeks post-op? I'm still in the full liquids phase for another 3 weeks, so I can't much other than Protein. I've been averaging around 40 gm of protein a day.

I am 6 weeks out and if I eat anything I mean tuna or baked fish I still have lost nothing for 2 weeks. What can I do? I don't think I can live on Liquid Protein and Water for ever! Help

the 3 week stall happens to most people. Your body needs to adjust. Never fear it will pass :) I know it is hard to believe that but its true.

I stall all the time. This last stall lasted for almost a month. I no longer get upset as I know this is how I lose. I will stall for quite a while and then lose a bunch. I don't mind it as long as I know I am still having the times when I lose. I know my body will lose weight with the amount of calories I consume in a day.

Just think back to what we used to eat in a day and look where we are now!!

Good luck!

      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.
