I was whining here a while back about a stall....I had been 180lbs for a month. .some lovely poster told me to "embrace the stall" as it was my body's way to do a big drop..ABSOLUTELY TRUE! Got on the scale at 180 and again the following week....166! Yay!

EMBRACE THE STALL!

thank you poster whoever you are!

Right there with you...your body needs to catch its breath and bring the set point down to where you are so that it doesn't go into survival mode on you. The pervasive need for instant gratification with weight loss on this site troubles me, and it's great to read somebody that gets it. I am loving a stall right up against 200 at the present time. I may use the holidays to trick my body into thinking there's a feast and then go all new year's resolution on it in January (like the olden days, minus the yo-yo).

Such a great attitude and I'm really going to try to follow in your footsteps! I'm 8 weeks post op and have not only been stalled over a week but gained a couple pounds back. (grrrr :angry: lol) I've checked and re-checked to make sure I'm following my plan properly and everything is A-OK there. I think I need to trust that my body knows what it's doing at this point. Your thread was some much needed encouragement though, thanks! :)

The majority of my weight loss has worked like this. A month of not budging then Bam! 10#s gone instantly. I just let it do it's thing and don't worry about it. I'll even go up a pound or 2 before dropping a bowling ball. I'm close to wanting to be stalled for good so it's comforting to know my body will be able to stagnate when it's time.

        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.
