11 days post op. Clothes are baggier but the scale is stuck! Only 5 lbs down since surgery. I walk 30 minutes a day and call are around 7-800. I'm getting my fluids and Protein. Trying not to get discouraged! Is this normal?

Patience grashopper. I had a 20 day stall in the beginning where I was eating about 800 calories a day and no weight loss. I wouldn't have believed it if it hadn't happened to me. Just keep doing what you should and it will happen. Our bodies try very very hard to hold on to the fat. I feel like it's a waiting game between me and my endocrine system sometimes..lol.

Yes. Patience. I dropped weight like a rock before surgery, and immediately after. I am two months out and have hit a stall. I try not to think about it. I just keep doing all the stuff I am supposed to do, and behave myself. It will pick up again.

I began a stall day 8 after surgery that lasted about two weeks. It's definitely not fun but I kept doing the right things and now I'm down 3 pounds in the last 6 days so my stall finally ended.

I'm 10 days post-op. I'm stalling too. I've only lost about 4lbs since surgery. My doctor told me that my loses won't be as huge because I started at 200lbs-which isn't as high as some. But he assured me my time would come.

I am one month after, total loss 26 pounds, since the day of the surgery lost only 20 pounds and now losing only 1 pound a week. Trying not to think about it and waiting my time.

I have been stalled for about 5 weeks. I am almost 9 months post-op. I'm trying to be patient but am getting highly annoyed. Hang in there and I will too.

Or bodies are trying to save us from starvation. Ramp up exercise beyond a comfortable point and see if that helps.

Worry not! It's normal. Put into the search field "stall" and you will get about 1000 hits. Frustrating yes but totally normal.

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
