It stops when you consume enough calories to match your TDEE.

That didn't come naturally for me. Left to my own devices, I'll under eat by like a thousand calories and would have kept losing until there was nothing left. I set alarms to remind me to eat now and keep a stash of high calorie bulking bars to get my numbers up.

I agree that it's all about how many calories you eat. Some people stop "naturally", because they are "naturally" eating enough calories to stop losing at that point. (Enough room, appetite, time, and desire to eat).

If you are at goal and want to stop losing (I assume you haven't updated your profile.. it still says you are 237lbs) then you need to examine what you are eating, and find healthy ways to boost your calories. I love starchy veggies for this. Potatoes, Beans, etc. Lots of nutrition in a calorically dense package. Add a pat of butter for an extra 50-100 calories.

It was very difficult for me to stop losing weight. I still struggle to keep weight on even three years out.

It can be very hard to go from a dieting restrictive mindset to a maintaining weight mindset.

I personally did this through adopting intuitive eating. This means I always eat when I am hungry and stop when I am full, and I don’t have any food rules or no foods. This has allowed me to maintain a healthy weight as long as I make sure to eat enough.

You could try something what I do, or you could simply track and increase your calories until you find your maintenance level. I would recommend to start by adding more Snacks into your day as well as full calorie fats.

Good luck! Let us know how it goes.

Hello how’s everyone?! Thanks so much for the replies. I’m fluctuating between 140-147 lbs. @bellabloom I started having more Snacks lol and I maintain that way. Phinley, I’ve learned can’t eat to heavy of a carb Vfor instance, omg potatoes are so heavy feeling maybe half cup of rice and bread is still like a snake eating a small mouse. I do purée half of any kind of bean Soup and that is my “jam” @berry78. I also realize how active I am can never sit still I was that way pre vsg but now is way different. My work requires it too. So I guess that’s affecting my weight too. I hope everyone is doing well!!!

Mine slowed down when they inserted my PICC line November 29th, probably lost some of my Golden Weight Loss Time. Well the line got pulled out last Tuesday February 26th, was some concern I might have developed an infection there that was going to go systemic. I had gotten pneumonia and swollen right shoulder joint within a week previous. Had to have shoulder joint drained so three areas at once? Spooky how sick I suddenly got, 3 things being cultured , let's see what the reports say. And now I am trying hard on taking food p.o. once again, hard when you have Food Apathy, nothing sounds good, few things taste good, and honestly I have no real desire to eat I knew Food would stop being joy and completion to my spirit, but now it doesn't even feel like fuel, about as appealing as mud! 😰😧😬

Congrats on getting to goal.

Maintenance takes time to settle into. Sounds like you are getting your weight to slow/stop by adding the calories and carbs ratios you need.

First year out, was an adjustment for me. I’m almost 5 years and life is normal.
