Stopped Losing

Hello, all. I had my surgery about 6 weeks ago, on march 9th. I was losing weight fast, then all of a sudden I stopped losing. Is that to be expected or is that not normal?

I keep hearing it's normal to stall every once in a while. I'm 9 days out and am losing a pound a day. I'm prepared for the stall

I lost quickly the first 5 weeks and entering 6th week to about the 9th week I lost very very very slowly... then out of no where I started losing again! Don't get discouraged, you're probably not doing anything wrong. It's just your body trying to adjust. Had surgery Feb 17th and down 60lbs

Stalls are common and frustrating but it will pass. I stalled at 3 wks, again around 6 wks and I'm currently in an almost 2 week stall at 16wks. Hoping it breaks soon.

Are you exercising? If not, you may want to start (if OK by your surgeon). If you are, you may want to increase the time you spend exercising. This was something my nutritionist really hammered home as an important part of the process.

Yes, as much as I can. I do have rheumatoid arthritis so there is a limit on how much I can do. But I try to at least walk a few times a day.

As soon as I am cleared to do so, I plan to spend a lot of time in the pool for low-impact exercise. Also, the elliptical is good for a low-impact activity. I am contemplating investing in one.
