Okay, so I’m 18 days post op, official move to soft day, a week ago my nutritionist allowed me to add a couple soft foods to my diet and slowly begin transitioning because I was struggling so badly on the purée liquid diet.< /p>

Since I added any semi soft food to my diet I’ve lost no weight.

I’m still only eating about 800 cal a day, but losing nothing. My Water intake is where it should be, my Protein intake is a little bit low, but I have a really hard time getting a Knouff food in in a day right now still.

I am also getting my exercise in but still don’t seem to be losing anything. I’ve heard about the stalls, has anyone had any luck breaking through the stall by increasing activity level, food intake, or water intake?

The only thing that works....is patience and consistency.

Stalls are irritating, but they're part of the package.

I'm four months out and I've already had two or three stalls. They really do end if you're scrupulous when you count your calories and remember to move around a lot. Also, really work to get that Protein, as it can be harder to lose weight if your protein count is too low. Be patient and your weight loss will start again soon!

Don't consider this a stall. When you start adding food back you begin refilling the digestive pipeline that you emptied on your liquid diet. Food takes ~3.5 days from end to end. Just as this probably accounted for 4 pounds of percieved (but not actual) weight loss on the liquid diet it will make it look like your weight loss has stalled (or even gone up) for about 3-6 days.

Trust me it was frustrating for me to see the same number on the scale for 4 days as soon as I started eating a little bit of soft food.

Good advice from Creekimp12. Also, make sure you are taking your measurements. It is possible to be losing inches while nothing is showing up on the scale. This has happened to me many times since I had my surgery. Just keep on moving forward with the plan it you body will adjust. It's trying to figure out what you're doing to it.

Curious if there's any update on your progress? Did you break through the stall?

I'm in the exact same spot and freaking out. Two weeks out and stuck for the last 6 days, despite eating 90% clean.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
