Good morning!

I had my 2 week post-op appointment on Tuesday. My incisions are healed and I had lost about 15 lbs since my pre-op appointment.

During the first week and a half my weigh loss seemed fairly consistant on a daily basis. Then all of a sudden nothing. I haven't lost anything in 5 days! Has anyone else had a similar experience?

I was getting so excited seeing the numbers drop on a daily basis that this feels like an emotional letdown.

I just switched to pureed foods and have been logging what I eat in my attempt to make the Protein numbers (60-80g). I am eating on average 500-600 calories a day.

Perfectly normal. Do a search on 3 week stall, you will find literally thousands of threads on them.

I stalled at exactly same time. I just quit weighing myself

Start weighing yourself once a week-- you're going to drive yourself crazy. I've seen millions of threads about the exact same thing! 15 pounds is awesome, by the way! Yahoo!

I told myself that I should only weigh once a week, but somehow I still end up on the scale every morning. :( I will have to remove the scale from my bathroom and just get it out on a predetermined day.

Thanks for the feedback.

Thanks Arts137 for sharing this. I needed to read this. I'm doing awesome with Protein intake, Water intake, but calories are hard. I need to move my body too. This was my kick. Thanks and again for sharing!

Just had my 2 week appt, but really it was 10 days. I came home 3# heavier than the day of surgery, and am now 2# less. My surgeon laughed when I told him how all the people on the blog already had the pounds melting off at this point. He told me I was still post op and healing, and was surprised that I was exercising (albeit just a little). He said I would be very pleased starting a month after surgery and everything was going as expected. So maybe it's not a stall, but a "haven't gotten going yet".

I stalled 2 weeks out too and I just started seeing the scale move (4 weeks out) also remember, those of us who don't have much to lose to begin with are going to lose slower than those with a higher BMI.

Stalls are just a part of the process. I've gone through about 1 stall a month since surgery. Usually they last about 2 weeks, then the weight starts falling again.

I do love that article, Arts 137. It really breaks it down in a way I can understand it.

When I switched to liquid diet with Soups and yogurt. Things got stuck and came back up. I had to go back to Clear liquids. Anyone else have this problem. I am 10 days post op.

I have had the same sort of things happen. I'm switching back to mostly Protein drinks and an occasional snack. Seems to at least keep me out if the bathroom some and make me feel a little better. I'm 16 days post op today.

I'm in the same boat as you. I'm down 9#, on my ladies time & haven't lost since week one post op.

Dr. Wasn't impressed at 2 week check up :(

I'm doing under 800 cal a day & am on pureed now. Hitting Protein, Water, cal & carb goals so I guess I'll just keep on keeping on and hope for some action.

Yes, it does bother me to see people that have bigger numbers post op.

I am hoping to average 10# a month loss, so I guess i'm on track.

allons-y

      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.
