Could be stress. I've also had a damn period for a month! I've been getting on treadmill for 20-30 min a day. Eating around 1300 cal.

Have you tried increasing your time on treadmill or intensity? Often our bodies adjust to the same routine.

I've been increasing the incline

Try some circuit training. Running for one minute then walking for two, then back up to running for about 30 minutes. After a five minute warm up and a five minute cool down. It really jumpstarts the metabolism. Good luck

I have to be a certain weight before they will even put me on the schedule :( I'm getting so frustrated and down. My weight keeps going up and down even though I'm doing all the right things.

Yep, you gotta go very low carb--Protein and veggies only, if you need sweet then no more than a cup of strawberries and/or blueberries a day. It sounds crazy, but don't be afraid of real butter, olive oil, and real salad dressing (2 carbs max per serving)--it will help the weight come off.

I lost 85 lbs 2 yrs ago doing this - gained it back of course, because its hard to stick with long term. You don't need long term, you need quick results! I'm now down 43 lbs since mid Feb doing low carb too. My NUT and doc are thrilled, and surgery is in less than 2 weeks!

You can do this!

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?
