Is anyone at 5 weeks out not really loosing weight? I slowed to a stop at three weeks which I assumed was the "dreaded 3 week" stall. But I am still not loosing. I have lost 2 pounds in 2 weeks. I am eating around 700-750 calories, I burn at least 200 of those daily with excercise Anyone have any advice. I am seeing the nut tomorrow to go over my fitness pal. I track everything. I don't want 26 pounds to be it.

I too stalled badly at 2 weeks and am still stalled pretty much on the last day of my 5th week. It's really upsetting. I even gained 3lbs overnight because I had 700 calories the night before the last! UGH! I knocked myself back down to 520 cals and lost those 3 plus 2 ounces yesterday...and have tried to do the same today and will see what the scale says tomorrow. This stall is the absolute WORST.LOL

All I have to say (further) about this stupid stall is.....guys....just drink down that Water please! I swear...I don't know how I would have lost those evil 3lbs I gained the other day if I hadn't drank up my 2 litres like a mad women. Not to mention it kept me away from grazing and made it so I had less meals. I just had 2 Protein shakes a day and my 2 litres of water...and a turkey slice lettuce wrap (66 cals, 33 if you use just one slice). 3 times in the whole day. Kept my calories low at 520 approx, kept my fat super low at 13g, my carbs lower than ever at 13.9g, and my Protein HIGHER THAN EVER at 91.2g!!!

I lost those 3lbs over night. Plus 2 ounces that I was stalled at for so many weeks! I know 2 ounces doesn't seem like much, but for us stalled for several weeks....it's enough to have a mini-fiesta over LOL.

BTW...Just thought I'd add again...July 25th here. :)

Hi,

I'm having trouble eating as much as I should. My weight loss slowed down a bit but once I added Protein shakes back in, it picked back up. My husband told me that if you don't eat enough, the body goes into starvation mode and you won't lose. Good luck!

Lulu

Agreed!

Basically...if you stall despite avoiding all sugar and white carbs try one of these a day until you see what works for you.

1.Eat more.

2.Eat less.

3.Workout / Workout more

4.Stop working out / give that body a rest to heal and replace muscle!

5.Change up what you're eating. (If you're low carb, high Protein, low fat. Change it up, make it high fat, low carb, high protein or whatever else works for you!)

6.Change up you're workout. If you're lifting weights, try cardio. Vice versa.

7. Drink more Water. This should be number 1 from my experience!

Finally broke my stall!!! I'm so excited! 2 more lbs... Gone. On another good note, this weekend I went shopping with my husband and discovered I can now wear a size large top! It's so weird because at my heaviest I was a 2xl. I've always thought those who could wear size large were normal sized women. It's hard to think of myself that way... I'm still amazed that I can even fit into a size large! The best is yet to come :)

I was just getting frustrated about that too. I am getting out daily to do some sort of exercise, I am eating my Protein and some vegetables, plus drinking all my liquids and I am stuck, been stuck for almost 3 weeks now. I am 5 weeks out and this is frustrating, I'll be upset if I just lose the 21 pounds and nothing else. hoping my body catches up. FRUSTATING

What broke your stall? I've upped the Protein a bit and nothing seems to help right now. The scale has stayed the same for 2 and a 1/2 weeks now...super irritating.

Honestly drinking Water and excerise. I think with some stalls you just have to wait them out. I kept a close watch on my calories and tried not to over do it with carbs. Anytime I ate over 800 calories I got on the eliptical. I have been eating the same things for Breakfast and lunch for over a week. Greek yogurt for Breakfast and a ready made tuna pouch that was 100 calories with either a mini babybel or a half of avocado. dinner was basically whatever I wanted. I cut out the Protein shakes because they don't fill me up and I ending up eating food a little bit afterward which increased my calories quite a bit.

Hi all,

I got my sleeve on July 25. I'm new to this forum - just heard about it from an old friend. My husband got his sleeve in 2012 and has lost 200 pounds. Is anyone else struggling with food? I know I'm not getting 64 ounces of Fluid. God knows I try but I don't seem to have room! Food... well, food is such a struggle. Just about everything makes me so sick. Fortunately, I haven't vomited (my post op nurse has me terrified of vomiting), but I am so sick of the constant diarrhea. The thickest thing I've been able to eat is cottage cheese. I used to love cottage cheese. I'm so over it now. I know that it will be worth it. I'm already down 46 pounds, but my husband never had this much trouble. I guess I just want to know that I'm not alone in this. Nobody really knows what it's like unless they've been through it. Sorry for the long post - I think I'm just so happy to have found a place to talk to people who understand.

Cheers,

Lulu

im the same way i think the food thing is in our mind i dont know about u but some times i want to go back to my old eating habits i have gotten sick and it no fun i ate to fast but we can do this.

I was sleeved july 25 my starting weight was 391 at 3 weeks I stalled but I think it was due to a sugar intake. I am now at 343 and have stoped eating sugar all together. Its called ketosis. Its the body using your stored fat to create energy instead of burning sugar. At least thats how I understood it. I have maybe 600cals a day but I eat very high protien foods. I have bacon, lowfat sausage, eggs, canned chicken breast or tuna, grilled foods like lean pork, chicken, beef or fish. Remeber some fats are good for your body. I also supplement protien with 3 scoops of necrar protien shake in about 16 onces of Water. Usually in the morning then once I get that down 30mins later I have my first meal of the day.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
