Getting to be impossible to lose!



Recommended Posts

I am a slow loser and I ha e accepted this fact. I accepted a month stall at only 4 months out from surgery. I accepted that my indiscretions at Thanksgiving (3 days of not tracking and over indulgence in pumpkin pie) resulted in a gain of three pounds. However, I have been back on track since the Sunday after turkey day and feel like this stall is different. As if, this might be it for weight loss. I would like to lose 20 more before my one year anniversary in March but feeling discouraged!

I feel ya. I am one of those people who can gain three pounds overnight and it takes a month to get it off.

According to my Happy scale app I have lost 4.2 lbs. in 90 DAYS. That sucks!

I think I'm losing inches, though. I bought 3 new tops and a lightweight coat to wear to an evening wedding next week. All in a size 1X and they are all too big. Too late to return the coat in time. What's next, size XL?

I feel you too. I am also a slower loser. I am actually losing more slowly now than I did with my lap band 8 years ago. I am trying to remember that it doesn't matter a bit if I lose the weight by any given date just as long as I lose it! I think the answer is to just keep pushing forward. You can do it!

I'm slowing too. Almost 8months out and have only lost 3 pounds in the last 6 weeks and have stalled for three or so. I'd like to lose 20 more too. I know I need to push it with exercise more. I guess we just keep on keeping on.

I gained 3 lbs over Thanksgiving as well. I feel like I'm in such a rut and am getting frustrated with my s-l-o-w progress the past 3 months. Some days it's hard to remain positive - even though I/we have come so far!

It's trips me out that my relationship to food is still so complicated. I'm a structured person so if my days are routine and busy, I'm fine. However, when I have breaks (teacher here), I go a little crazy without the structure so really I eat out of boredom. The thing is, I really need down time. With three kids and working, I can only handle the go, go, go lifestyle for so long. When I have breaks (like a two week break coming up for winter), I really need to just chill. The flip side of that is, I take a break from EVERYTHING! Tracking, exercise, Water, eating well. I guess knowing this about myself, I can try to have a plan for winter break!

Sounds like you are doing great! My starting weight as 244. I just hit 3 months this week and I have lost 33 pounds. So this chart has run true for me. Good luck with your weight loss! :)

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
