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...

       Lunch time was my yummy dinner from last night. I made homemade turkey chili. I know, it's the middle of summer but I wanted something hardy and that was perfect with some sliced avocado & a tad of shredded Mexican cheese. YUM! I found the recipe that was titled "the best turkey chili recipe you will ever eat" and in fact, it was!
      My shake this afternoon is the Syntrax Nectar Kiwi Strawberry with a banana. I brought in my magic bullet blender to work since it's light and portable. I used water this time instead of the almond milk. Sipping it now at my desk, it's pretty good. I'd give this one a 5! The banana takes over and taste just like strawberry banana shake. Yum!
      Not quite sure what I am planning on tonight for dinner but since I had my main meal for lunch, it will consist of a dinner shake and a p.m. snack after (protein based of course- probably 2 hard boiled eggs.
       10 more days until surgery... I really hope my liver is teeny tiny from all of this!

      One week out and I am okay.  I am not in any pain and I still do not have gas.  I am feeling empty and no hunger.  I am getting my liquids down.  My doctors appointment is on Thursday.  The runs have slowed down to once a twice a day.  I am doing 30 mins of activity a day to the neuropathy in my legs  I want to try to do more there is nothing stopping me
      I do not feel anything emotion wise like happiness, second guessing, sadness, full of questions.  Some second thoughts as I am realizing the help of the surgery is changing your thought process.  I could eat but I can wash it out of my head. I wish I could do this with my legs.

      Checking in on this sunny Monday morning. For those who read my last update on Friday, I was having a funky week. I recharged the batteries. I spent a fun filled day a the pool yesterday and rode the water slide at least 10 times, yes... like a little kid! I made a work out date with a bestie for this evening. AND I officially, as of this morning, weigh two pounds less than my husband, and 9lbs away from ONEderland! It's amazing how quickly things can happen... I'm so blessed. So for now, its a good week. Love to all!
      OH and! My BMI has gone from 57 to 35.9  That's 21.1 difference. *mic drop*

      This weekend I found it difficult to write/journal anything with my dear soon to be 2 year old running around and keeping me busy. I have quite a few shakes to write about since Friday.
      Friday's continuation of lunch was the Syntrax Nectar Crystal Sky. I'd give this a 4. Reminded me of Kool-aid. Not too shabby and kept me full. 
      For dinner Friday I had my left overs of baked chicken, sauteed spinach with olive oil and garlic and steamed broccoli, potatoes and cauliflower. 
      For my pm snack, I had the Syntrax Nectar Wild Grape. I blended it with PB2. I should have just had it plain.  I think it would have tasted so much better. In my head  I figured it would have tasted like a pb and jam sandwich. Because of my experiment, I gave it a 2 and 1/2. LOL.
      Saturday morning I tried the Syntrax Nectar Cappuccino latte with pb2. Not bad. Some of these Syntrax latte's have that sweet after taste even though they say they are aspartame free. I have no idea what it is but I'm not a fan. The PB2 or banana kind of takes that away.
      Hubs took me to see a movie and my n-laws watched our son. I didn't think ahead so I grabbed a smoothie at the Jamba Juice to stay hydrated. I could have totally snuck in my own shake or drank water but I was tending to my son's needs ahead of mine. I need to learn to make more time for myself. I do have anxiety and this kicks in right before we leave to go out whether it's the family or just me and my hubs. My mother-n-law and father- n law are great with my son but sometimes they don't listen to instructions I give them and thus causes the anxiety to come out. Ugh. Anyway, back to it....
      So this Jamba Juice I had ordered was the PB Banana Protein and MAN did it have ALOT OF SUGAR IN IT. I should have made my own but I'm only human right....Yes, It was tasty but a medium size with 34g of protein, okay......58g carbs, 23g fat and ....eekk....49g of sugar .
      Not, the best choice. Again, I'm only human but I need to really research my nutrition info. before just looking up and seeing "oh protein, that's what I need, I'll take that, please" on the big board of what looks good.
      For dinner, I had a hoagie bowl from my local Wawa which was grilled chicken (all 3 stripes of it ) REALLY?!  packed with veggies and some honey mustard dressing. 
      Breakfast Sunday morning was Syntrax Nectar Strawberry Mousse. I swapped out water with almond milk and added 1/2 a banana. That was a 5 for sure! Very tasty!
      Lunch I tried the Syntrax Nectar Caribbean Cooler with almond milk and 1 banana. Tasted just like a daiquiri. So good. One of my favorites so far! 5!!!!
      Dinner I made turkey chili. Very good! High protein and so good!
      Breakfast this morning, I tried the Syntrax Nectar Vanilla Latte with 1 banana and almond milk. Bit of an after taste again. I need to find out what the hell that is. Again, all of these protein shakes are aspartame free yet, I have this horrible sugary, "sweet-n-lowy" kind of after taste. I give this one a 3.
