I know this is a common topic, but I have stop losing weight. I had my surgery Dec 1st, and I was doing well with the weight loss. I lost close to 66 pounds. Then about a month ago I stopped loosing weight. I have been staying within a 3 pound range. It's frustrating and kind of heart breaking. I was steadily losing weight, then boom nothing. I feel like all the hard work i have been doing is for nothing. I am trying to stay positive. I know stalls happen. I just didn't know they would last this long.

As you get closer to goal weight, it get's harder and harder. Relative to me, you're within spitting distance of your goal weight. Just keep persevering and following your program. The stall will break eventually.

Are you still tracking your food on an app?

do you still weigh the portions?

have you let carbs slip back in?

are you doing the exact same exercise routine. Change is good keep the body guessing.

Inc the portion of workout that is weight training

Lots of small things can stall you out.

AS the others above noted the closer you get to goal the harder and slower each pound comes off.

good luck and try to stay positive this stall takes nothing from what you have already accomplished.

The one thing i never really did was keep track of my food intake. I know its something i should do, but i keep forgetting. I tend to eat the something everyday. Maybe it is time to change it up a little. I still weigh food out. I usually eat between 5 and 6 ounces depending on what I'm eating.i wish i had carbs. That was the one thing i have totally cut out of my diet. I know I have to be patience, its just frustrating

it is and can be very frustrating.  trying to focus on the longer term is tough to do all the time.

i would suggest if you have not done so already.  dont weigh yourself to often.

At the start it was fun to see the pounds fall away almost daily  but that feedback loop works against you later as things slow down and seeing the same number drags you down emotionally.

step away from the scale and look to other things for positive feedback.

your clothes

how you look and feel after a good workout.

how much energy you have to do things you struggled with before

anything non weight related that makes you feel good.

This ^^ ... I've fallen into the bad habit of weighing myself everyday and I've been pretty vocal against it. I want to break myself of this habit as it really isn't healthy.

Often we stop losing weight because we aren’t drinking enough water...

      When I got dressed this morning, I realized I was wrong about the size of the jeans I got at Walmart the other day. They're not 26/28s; they're 24/26s! Which is even better, but also ridiculous because a pair of size 26 pants from the same brand were too small. The jeans have stretch, though, and the pants did not.

      As of last Friday, I dropped back into Onderland!!! Can't believe it! Last time my weight started with a one was at least 10-15yrs ago. Pic from this Saturday with my hubby and his mom at our house warming party. Other pic is me at my heaviest last summer. The transformation blows me away! As a reward for hitting this big milestone, I'll be signing up for a horseback trail ride - the first one I've been able to do in over a decade due to weight restrictions. I'm sooo excited!! I'm also training for my first half marathon - ran my first 10k on Sunday  It's incredible what I'm able to do now, and everyday I'm thankful for this amazing tool that is helping me realize some big dreams.

      So, getting finances in order, I managed to sell my 2016 Toyota Avalon. It was a beautiful car, of which surprisingly, I’m doing fine without and I actually don’t miss it; and also of which resulted in having a one-vehicle household, which resulted in me HAVING to walk 2.2 miles everyday 5x a week to get my daughter to school. I’m actually quite glad, I’m feeling better/stronger again, and I dropped almost $20,000 of debt. WIN-WIN!

        Awesome sauce!!!

      2. FluffyChix

        Yay!!! That's incredible on so many levels! Yay you! (You wouldn't have been able to do it if you didn't have the surgery and re-birth!"

        Maybe you should look at practicing your nutrition stuff from home?

        Car debt is the bane of my existence. Wont do it. And I love Toyota...I drive (and LOVE) my 2015 Camry...so I know how hard that was. Absolutely awesome you're getting the walking in, instead. Love that so much! Also teaches good habits to the kiddo....which is brilliant.

        Speaking of kiddo and cars..I've spent the last three months combing the web for a used car for my daughter. She has a summer job lined up here and needs a car to get to various labs and sample sites....and I won't let her go into more debt. (she has minimal student loans and will graduate next year with her microbiology degree)

        I found her a 2008 Malibu from Tennessee, clean inside and out...with just barely 100K on it...and I'm feeling incredibly accomplished. $3000, we paid cash :) CarFax is clean, mechanic said it was in great shape and she should get a few years out of it yet. Very common car with cheap parts if repairs are needed in the future. Previous owner did a valve job and replaced timing chain, and all maintenance was done at dealership. Brand new tires and brakes.

        It's parked in our driveway as we speak. Runs and sounds like brand new.

        I can't wait to see her face:)

      4. Mattymatt

        Well that's awesome! Keep up the good, positive work. :-)

      5. Newme17

        Lol. Cute...I like that “awesome sauce!” @Sleeve1stFitNext!

        @FluffyChix there’s so much that I probably wouldn’t have done if I didn’t have this surgery! I’m still so glad I did too. I seem to work better when being “forced” in to situations. Lol

        @Creekimp13, we’re Toyota lovers here. A former Avalon, and two former Tundras...currently on our third Tundra...and have always had a car payment! Ugh! We’re doing this Dave Ramsey program that’s making a lot of sense to us and so there went the Avalon. Also in the process of maybe getting a cash car...speaking of which, you were hugely blessed for what you found! Wow! That’s the kind of deal I want. I told the hubby not to buy one yet though, I’m enjoying the walks and the time with my kids walking. Definitely good habits being taught. 😊

        @Mattymatt thanks hon! Its hard to be in the dumps when there’s a win on both sides! Yay!!!

      Tonight's experiment: wonton wrapper lasagna (made with ground turkey and a Greek yogurt cream cheese/mozzarella/cheddar/spices mix instead of ricotta, which I don't like) and tacos (made with taco meat pilfered from my sister's supper). In the oven now!

        Realized I never took a pic of the finished product, so here:IMG_4986.thumb.JPG.cb2e5dae24a45ae2e2896c8a38e26669.JPG

        Those look scrumptious!

      3. istytehcrawk

        They are! I would have even liked them before surgery, and my coworker asked for the recipe.

      4. Orchids&Dragons

        Have you shared the recipe here?

      5. istytehcrawk

        The recipe I based it on is in the first comment on this thread, though I just used some leftover sauce I had frozen about a month ago and made my own concoction for the cheese layer instead of ricotta. For that, I used half a block of Greek yogurt cream cheese, a third of a cup of shredded mozzarella and a third of a cup of cheddar, plus a heavy dose of garlic powder and some Italian seasonings. That was enough to make 9 cups, in this order: wonton, spoonful of cheese mixture, spoonful of sauce, wonton, spoonful of sauce, sprinkle of mozzarella. Baked them for 13 minutes. Her recipe uses a second layer of the cheese mixture, but mine does not (though if I make them again, I might include it).
