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.

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds

      Hi guys I'm so glad I found this page.  I'm having VSG this spring and could use all the support I can get!!!
      I'm documenting my journey on youtube, if you are interested in supporting and following my journey click the link posted. 
      I'm trying to find support groups and do this journey via youtube because my family is super small and close minded so I  literally have my husband and children's support only.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
