Hi!

Has anyone else stalled for 3 months? I hit 250 and have been bouncing around here since February. PSW was 368, SW was 338 and I am now 250. The first 80 came off quickly and effortlessly and am wondering if my body is adjusting and I need to give it a kick start?

Looking for tips, suggestions and of course, I need to start keeping a food journal again...

Thanks all!

My suggestions are to exercise every day. Walk, then walk faster and longer. Also, log your food, I do this every day, even when I am not doing so great. It helps me realize the cause for my successes and failures. It really makes a difference! Please don't give up, it's a marathon not a sprint!

Absolutely log your food. It keeps you accountable to yourself. It is amazing how fast one can get off track even after a week of not logging.

Also have you tried the 5 day pouch test? Google it, lots of folks that have been stuck that long are able to get kick started using this test. It basically puts you through the food stages and your body starts kicking into to weight loss mode again. If I ever get a stall that lasts as long as yours I plan to use that to pouch test to get me started again.

Good luck to you!

Sounds like a mental block. I got that way at each milestone weight. 275-250-225. Not a three month stop but long enough for me to say need to keep going. I'm not stopping here.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
