After 7 weeks my stall finally broke!! I’ve been going up and down 2 pounds for over 7 weeks now, and today I was down 3 pounds, putting my total weight loss at 61.2 pounds! I’m so excited!!

I haven’t done anything different, I just rode it out. However, I have to say I was scared that I might be done with the weight loss, and I was getting depressed. So, for all of you in the dreaded 3 month stall, hang in there!! (Surgery 12/13/17)

Yay for you! I have been stalled for almost 3 months - lost a pound or two and stalled yet again. It is miserable to say the least.

Way to persevere and not toss in the towel!

I had a 6wk stall that i thought would never end. Thankfully it did and I'm dropping like crazy now. Dont give up if you're stalling.

Holy crap, 7 weeks! Man I would be a wreck. And the sad thing is I've just hit my 3 month stall. I hope I don't have to wait that long. What did you do to break the stall?

I didn’t do anything. I just stuck to my plan and it just started coming off again. Finally!!!

RNY 12/21 and I’m down 40 lbs. more than half of that was in the first 4 weeks. I’ve been slowly losing and stalling since. It’s frustrating to say the least and I get worried I’ll stop losing before I hit my goal weight

8/8/17 was my surgery (I’m a revision band to SIPS) but was at my hw of 242 at my first revision consultation. For my band back in 2010 my hw was 239 so I was even heavier for my revision [emoji22][emoji25] I was 226 on my surgery date though (8/8)

      So I'm having a really really really crappy day. Crappy month really.  My husbands been off work for 2 months with an injury and I've been picking up all the slack with everything. And while, I'm happy to step up to the plate and do these things, I'm getting worn out, physically and mentally. And we went to the doctor today that just pushed his recovery time out for another 2 months.
      The reason I tell you all this......
      I bought twizzlers from the vending machine... and I've been nibbling on them.....
      So much for a lifestyle change *cry face*
      Its crazy because I haven't thought about food as comfort in a very long time. But today, I broke.

        Are you binge eating those snacks?
        Are you way over your calorie counts?

        I'm going to go out on a limb and say "no".
        You *clearly* have made the lifestyle change, you are eating a candy and I'm sure you are taking the time to savor and enjoy it too. Don't feel bad about it. You are allowed some "junk" foods every now and again, it's the whole "all the time" that was bad. I have no doubt in my mind that you've made the changes and are living a totally different food life now.

        Forgive yourself.
        Only stress about what you can control.
        You are a rock star!

      2. AshAsh1

        Thank you Matt.

        You are right, I'm not binging by any means. I guess what upsets me is that I bought it, not because I was craving something sweet or because I was hungry. I bought them because I thought it would emotionally make me feel better. Which it didn't, which is a good thing, because I know now that not only I shouldn't turn to food, but it doesn't work anymore.

        You are a great friend. Thanks again for the words of encouragement and understanding.

      3. Matt Z

        I get where the "upset" is coming from, but that revelation should show you that you've really made MASSIVE changes to your entire lifestyle.

        The simple fact that you are on here, talking about how upset eating some Twizzlers made you... is more than enough proof that you are doing the right things.

        Allow the concession and smile. That old Ash is gone.

      4. sillykitty

        Hi Ash ...

        Sorry you are having the crappy month :(

        I agree with Matt, that one vending machine purchase does not undo the tremendous success you have had, and the lifestyle changes you have made. And even better yet, you learned that food doesn't give you the comfort it once did.

        We are way harder on ourselves than we would be on anyone else!

        Hugs!!

        Twizzlers? What twizzlers? Over and done. Never happened.

      I moved from "obese" and made it to the "overweight" category on the BMI chart today!  Yippee!  Check out my latest 13 week Post-Op update on YouTube:

      I'm less than 320 for the first time in many many years. I honestly cannot remember when. The lowest I can remember being is 325 back in 2015, but less than 320!?! I'm just over three weeks post-op and I'm down a total of 64.2 pounds lost since June 29, 2018, when I first saw the surgeon.

So i'm two weeks post op and I feel like the first week great! I lost 16 lbs that week....but this week I have only lost 3 pounds!  What i'm I doing wrong?! And NOOOOO I havent been eating solids....regardless the pasta comment lol Im still on liquids. Hummmmm...TBC

        Welcome to the site, I'm sure you'll get lots of helpful insights here. Just so you know - status posts don't usually get many responses. If you'd like to hear from several people, it is best to start a thread (post a topic).

        And, you're right, pasta would be a really bad idea :o

      2. fmellnick

        Thank you so much! :) Good thing you told me this site is weird to get around lol

      3. Orchids&Dragons

        Yes, it's definitely not intuitive. I will also warn you that posts about foods that you know you shouldn't eat sometimes elicit "over-the-top" responses. This is a religion for some people and they may not get that you were joking.

      4. fmellnick

        Oh man! Youre the best thanks for the heads up! :)
