Anyone have their 3 week stall earlier? I was sleeved 7/28 and the second week post op lost only .1 lbs... I've been getting in close to 10,000 steps a day and meeting my Protein and Water goals...still eating puréed food and getting frustrated [emoji30]

Right???!!! I thought the three week stall was a myth. The Lochness monster of the WLS world, if you will. Then BAM! Three week stall, right on schedule.



Me too! Sleeved on 7/21, had the 3 week stall!

I was sleeved July 10. Feeling great, but I'm in the dreaded 3 week stall. I haven't lost an ounce in a week. I'm trying not to let it get me down because a lot of people experience this. *I will not complain. *I will not complain. *I will not complain.

I’m in a stall already now. I’m only 4 weeks out and been fluctuating 2 lbs. for the last week ½. I’ve heard about stalls but never this early on. But my body is still shrinking. I can tell by my clothes, so that is what I’m going by. I’m also going to start doing the measuring thing, and compare that instead of the scale. I think that scale is an evil thing. :71_smiling_imp: Yes I do- lol

I know this is an little older post and was wondering if you’re out of your stall and how you’re doing?

My surgery is coming up, August 30th, but one thing I have learned from a lot of people on here is to Celebrate the NSVs (Non-Scale Victories). I am filled with excitement and nerves, but you all seem to be doing pretty well. Thanks for sharing your experiences!!!

My surgery was 07/17/2017 and I'm at the stall. Been for about a week or so, since I started stage 2. Surgery was easy. Minimal pain... More issues with the pain meds. I"m allergic to Morphine so they gave me Dilaudid. Nope - same reaction- So the itching and burning was worse than the surgery. So I quit pain meds on Second day of four day stay. I did take two weeks off, but really think I only needed one.

I do still have some incision pain still. The largest of the 10. I couldn't believe I had 10 marked. Asked Doc about them and he accounted for each one, but I was still surprised... plus the drain. ugh

My only bad is I started puree a week earlier than the plan stated - I know bad bad bad. Our plan does four week pre-op, then two week clear post - op, then two week full liquids which only added Protein Shakes to the clear, nothing else. I was so nauseated on the shakes I moved to pureed - one meal at a time till now I can do all three meals pureed. The shakes started tasting like rotten eggs smell. I just can't do them anymore. Blah - plus I bought some stuff from the store on here. The Soups are amazing. Bought oatmeal but haven't tried it yet.

I never got my Day of Surgery weight. They weighed me, but it was in Kilograms and of course I couldn't remember what it was after the surgery. I'm down from my highest of 315 to 270. I'm already feeling better. I can move so much more. And I don't really feel hunger or craving of any sort. So crazy.

Just gotta be patient about this Stall. Patience... Patience.... Patience... :blink:

GrInS,

I don't know if I've had a stall or if I'm in one right now. I don't get on the scale all that often. I try to stay off of it as much as possible. My surgery was 7-18. I was 303 at the very start of my journey. Weight the day of surgery was 279 and right now I'm at 255. Happy would be the understatement of the year!!!

My biggest concern is that I'm able to eat 8 ounces at every meal, 3 a day. I'm afraid that at some point it'll go up and I'll stretch out my pouch.

Anyone else eating this much at this point after their surgery? To me it seems as if everyone eats a few mouthfuls at each meal and they're stuffed. Am I worrying about nothing? I could use some reassurance here. LOL

Thanks,

Joe

Surgery was 7/24
I ate some solid food today. It went ok. Chewed it REALLY well. I try to count 30 Chomps before swallowing. HTH

I think after looking at my food tracking, my stall is due to lack of Water consumption. I get lot's of Protein, but not nearly enough water. I feel fine, but drinking enough liquids is so hard. I can't just swallow as fast I used to and I need to learn to just drink slowly.

Remember your 15th days starts your 3rd week.. your 21st day is the end of your 3rd week.. hang in there, it'll pass! :780_sparkling_heart:

Remember to take measurements often.. stalls are just your body reshuffling.. you are still shrinking :)

I'm in the same boat.. especially now that I've added food into my day.. If I drink a Protein Shake, or eat anything I can't drink for HOURS.. I just stay too full, and it'll come back up. I drank a half a Protein shake for Breakfast yesterday, and by 2:00 I could finally drink water. Somedays I just focus on water. Food will have to come later..

In that case split your intake into 4 sections. Before breakfast have one part of your water intake. Breakfasts. Break. Second part lunch. Break third part. dinner. Last part over the evening.

I struggle with water so much and if I don't focus on it I end up hardly drinking anything!

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
