Since we are all in the stall together! Punintended! Do you think there is any evidence or studies done on patients who had revision surgery from lap band to RNY or any other type of revision and stalling?

I have no idea. I am also not sure what you are asking exactly.

Stalls are part of the weight loss process, so I don't think the type of procedure you have would impact the fact that you will stall.

Have you asked your surgeon or NUT about your specific concerns?

You are SOOOO right, as usual! My last "stall" lasted a couple of months, broken today. I think it is most of those who have just recently had their surgery, who talk about the stalls so much. Like you said, it is part of the whole thing. And lest we forget, it is not unusual to "regain" a few pounds here and there on our path. Just the body shifting around, getting used to the new program. It's best to take things one day at a time, and as we follow our individual programs, it is important to remember that everyone is different, and we each, independently, will lose in our own way, at our own time. Your wisdom, Inner Surfer Girl, is spot on!!!! Have a great weekend, everyone!

How long ago was your surgery?

No offense, but you know you're a newbie, also?

I don't care if you've done 50 years of research. Until you've actually had the surgery, what you think you know goes out the window.

It's kind of like the people who say they know all about how to be a parent because they're a nanny.

I mean, I'm 16 months out and still don't know sh*t.

True enough. But I've been the "new kid on the block" in enough different situations to recognize the pattern of the newest people to seemingly ALL make the same mistake, do the same thing, etc. before becoming more familiar with the setting.

I was just extrapolating those experiences to the comment that "Newbies never change."

That's all. No offence meant.

Understood :)

I love this quote, we need to b kind to ourselves and our bodies and continue to eat, snack, take our vitamilns, drink, and exercise rt as well as eat and keep our lives balanced in order for our bodies to be healthy and put out the results we want. I know we r human and try to substitute and tweak with our alignment but we need to not b so hard on ourselves. I'm getting back on track slowly but surely and am not beating myself up anymore. I'm realizing, as previously mentioned, "I am only human".

I'm not bemoaning the stall; I know it's part of the journey. HOWEVER, I would like to know from others at what point they stalled and how long their stalls lasted. And yes, I'm aware that everyone is different, but it's helpful to me to hear about the experiences of others.

exactly!

I stalled weight wise on Nov. 17 and still stalled! BUT - my clothes keep getting looser, today I ran an entire mile on the treadmill instead of walking fast. I still eat and drink healthy and I feel dam good. I still weigh every day and chart it, mainly cause I'm a statistics kind of guy and love to predict trends and control numbers and all that geeky stuff. Plus I'm ahead of schedule still on percent lost.

I am not there yet, but I have observed that stalls may lengthen and become more frequent the closer people get closer to goal. It makes sense as our bodies seek an equilibrium point.

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
