Do a search on here for Three Week Stall. It's very common and has been posted about countless times. Some of those threads have excellent explanations of why it happens to us.

Congratulations on your progress, that's wonderful!!

1. Step away from the scale. You should weigh yourself no more than once a week. Personally I only weigh myself once a month or when I go to the doctor's whichever come first. Weighing yourself everyday will make you crazy.

Instead take your measurements. Neck, breast, waist and hips. Every 2 -3 months or so take your measurements again. Even when the scale does not move, comparing your measurements will show how your body is changing and adjusting.

2. Make sure you are following your program. That means getting at least 60 gms of Protein, plus your water/fluids and you are following the basic rule of Protein first then veg. Also add in some form of exercise for at least 30 minute a day.

I'm still in a lot of pain concerning my surgery so I am not doing a lot really, I am usually getting bout 600-800cals a day in and sometimes not even that, I just can't believe I am putting enough in to increase my weight! I be 3 weeks post on Friday, I weigh myself once every 3 days as it was falling off and I needed encouragement as my anti depressants haven't kicked in yet so now I think I will stop weighing so much and mayb do it once a week, I know I am due on my monthly so mayb its Water retention it's just really upset me I had it 3stone and now I have gone backwards :-(

You aren't thinking rationally. You yourself have said it could be Water retention because it's that time of the month. That's not a true weight gain. You lost 3 stone(42lbs) in 3 weeks! When has that ever happened? You have to realize that there will stop, starts and times when it will appear that you are gaining as your body undergoes this transformation. If this upsets you, throw away your scale and only get weighed at the doctors.

If you are on your monthly, then surely it is playing havoc with your weight. After just going through Menopause, I can't use that excuse. lol. You are ahead of the curve at 42 pounds, so maybe your body needs to take a deep breath and readjust. It will pass, it will pass, it will pass. Weigh yourself in one week. Don't cheat. Give your scale to a neighbor :0) Go get it back in a week. Let us know what it says. We are all your cheerleaders!

My body shifts weight rather quickly! when I did lighterlife I lost 6 stone in 14 weeks, but sadly then put the 6+5 back on quickly too! Yes I am due on my monthly in the next 2 weeks and my clothes R starting to tighten again meaning I am swelling like I normally do just before I come on!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
