It is perfectly normal as long as you are staying hydrated and getting in the Protein required. Stalls in weight loss is normal and should not be cause for concern. Weigh yourself no more than once a week to avoid being terribly frustrating as fluctuations are very normal.

Hang in there.

How many calories are you taking in per day? Carbs? Protein? How much Water are you drinking each day? What are you doing for exercise? Are you logging your food and drink?

It very well might be a stall. They happen and happen frequently for me, but in order to give you any advice, it would be helpful to have some more information...

According to several in another group I am in make sure your getting your protein...all of it... many of those who were having stalls stepped up their Protein and saw changes quickly.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
