sick of not loosing



Recommended Posts

Plateaus are totally normal! Don't be discouraged. Your body is accessing the next amount of adipose tissue, holding Water, making muscle, and regulating hormones. It WILL start coming off again. Stick to the exercise, and the food regimen. Also- too few calories puts your body in starvation mode, and you won't loose anything. Make sure you are eating enough food, and get your Protein in!

Good luck!

I was curious why the scale wasn't moving yet I had lost two inches in my hips. Even though I'm not too good about exercise, I make sure I get at least 70 gms of Protein a day. What I read said that even without exercising you can gain muscle when eating a lot of Protein. Since muscle weighs more than fat, I was losing inches although not losing weight.

I kept doing what I was doing and the scale finally moved.

Hang in there!!

I am just over 3 weeks out. My stall lasted for 10 days. I weighed on Friday and then this morning. I lost 5 pounds. Your body just has to have time to catch up. I'm also in the 300 pound range. Don't panic!

I am 3 weeks post op..lost steadily for the first 2, then went up 2 lbs and have been stuck there for 3 days. Isn't it too early to hit a plateau. Doing everything according to the book, but am very depressed about this stall.

There are as many ways to get from point a to point b as there are people. I'm a slow loser but I am happy I am losing. If I were younger, more fit, a different metabolism, but I'm me and this is how I lose.

I was sleeved 10/2. I was 230 at high weight, 222 day of surgery. I'm "only" down to 194 today. I've stalled 3 times, for 12+ days each time. I'd kill to have lost as much as you did. And btw, I stick to the plan very tightly.

Don't compare yourself to people who have different amounts to lose, who are younger, who are male, etc. you're doing just fine as long as you're following your plan.

When i would have a stall (before surgery on different diets), I would intentionally eat bad for a day or two. I would add a few more carbs and then start again. It always worked. Bottom line is your body adjusts to what you are doing after a while.

I wish I kept the article someone posted on there a few months ago it was very interesting and stated that it takes 4.4pounds of Water to burn one pound! That is why you will lose inches but not weight for a week or two and then one day see a 3-4 pound drop! I am a little over 3 months out and have had a weight stalls! I was weighing every day!!! I was depressing so I stopped now I weight every so often nothing consistent and I am still losing and doing awesome!!!

I was sleeved on 10/7 how=221; sw=210 cw=198.8

Ia just started week four and follow the plan religiously. Thought I would have lost at least 10 lbs more. Suffered a 1 week stall where I went back up to 200, now am at 198.8. So frustrating..I just want to see the results faster than what I am seeing now.

Good to know. I too need to stop weighing every day, which is part of the frustration.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
