I know that everyone is different, however, I'm wondering if people experienced a large drop (more than 5 lbs) or a small drop immediately after their stall? I'm going through a three week stall right now, and want to temper my expectations for what will happen once the stall ends....

I'll be happy with any loss once this stall ends, but was just curious as to what other people have experienced.

Thanks!

probably not so helpful, but I've had it go either way. I can never predict!

I'm experiencing a month long stall!

I am going up and down to the tune of 3-7 pounds!! I was sleeved on Feb 1st. 2016.

Being honest with myself now, earlier in recovery I ate organic raw yogurt, and some of it was sweetened "naturally" and others like the Maple Pecan, of course had maple Syrup. Well, even though I ate these things I still lost weight rapidly.

NOW. I am still eating the same things, and I am SOOOOOO stalled and fluctuating and I am exercising! I am going nuts!

And as fate would have it, I checked in my monthly visit with my surgeon while I was on my period. I'm a big girl who weighs 305 pounds. When I am IN my period, I will gain up to ten pounds, I do not like telling men this.

He decided to schedule me for a two week follow up to see if I had gone back on track, I will follow up with a PA.

Three days ago I had lost what I thought was "officially" six pounds in one week. Today I jump pn the scale and I am back up three pounds! Freaking out! What if I go in, in one week and I am right back at 310?!?!

OK. So, it seems I have to cut ALL carbs no matter what form. But I truly do not want to give up my limited amount of Raw Milk that I add to my cold brewed coffee each morning. I lost so much weight before when drinking raw milk.

I can cut out the flavored yogurts. I really can't describe here just how delicious they were. Look up Mother Culture out of San Antonio Texas. She makes yogurt that is more delicious than I ever thought even existed in reality. BUT I will give it up and stick with plain.

Artificial sweeteners give me a headache. You know I'll never take an NSAID again, and that's the only thing that helps my headaches. My Muscle Milk has artificial sweetner in it. Sigh.

So reality is hitting me hard now. As before this surgery, in order to lose the weight, I have to give up more carbs than I initially thought.

PS I did make a raw shake right before bed last night, that's something I never do. And I am experiencing real hunger sensations. They go away with Water, but they are exactly like they were before surgery. That HANGRY that you see in commercials. I'm a bit lost. This is me, reaching out! =(

Is the only way to END a stall, is to cut carbs and amounts back to early post surgical menus?

@@Amelie2016 How many grams of Protein are you getting? How about calories? You may not need to cut anything out - you just may have to change things up a bit. Are you drinking at least 64oz of fluids a day? Often you aren't having enough calories especially if you are exercising and your body will hold onto weight/fat.

Thank you for the reply!

I have always had good success at getting my Water in. My last appt. with my surgeon, we were supposed to have gone over the blood results of my complete nutrition panel (I gave 14 vials of blood, whoa!) but of course, they did not make it to the office in time. So next week I should know if I am lacking something.

I'm probably NOT getting in enough Protein, but then again I always make that my first bite. I even just finished my three egg yolk and raw milk shake, flavored like eggnog. I get the fresh eggs from a local, beautiful pastured farm here near my house. It's a food club. Or I'll eat three or four large scallops. Lots of seaweed salads. Sometimes raw cheese and of course the Greek yogurts. But, it is possible I am low on protein, thanks for mentioning it. I've had a bad molar cap, and could not chew meat for the three months I've been recovering. When I did, I would pay the price by having inflamed gums. I got that fixed just 2 weeks ago. =) I think you just helped. Will a lack in protein cause this>

I am going to the gym again tonight and make sure I work up a sweat in case the yogurt did it to me.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
