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.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
