How much are you down? I’ve been at a stall for 2 weeks. I’m doing everything right, and it’s pissing me off!! Getting 10k-12k steps a day too!!

Since surgery on 3/7 I’m down 23# but for the last week and half I’ve stayed within a pound of the same weight. I’m still on the final soft stage so my foods are still limited, so this “stall” is a bit confusing for myself as well.
I did battle a stomach flu last week for a day plus a day recovery that I didn’t get to exercise.

How do we get outta this stall??

I lost 18#s in the first month, but now I am also in a stall. Its been 8 days and I am up 0.2 lbs from the start, bouncing around the 198's.

I started Phase 4 of my diet yesterday, with no more Protein Shakes (unless I need a few grams of Protein to meet my daily target).

I was sleeved 3/12. I've lost almost 30 lbs since! I haven't really hit a "stall" yet, but I guess it depends on age and so many other factors too.

When did you have your sleeve done? I physically can’t eat 60g of protein at a minimum unless I eat all at long. I still need my protein shakes.

Its hard! I had surgery 5 weeks ago. I eat 4 times a day: 6am-10am-2pm-6pm. Today's menu (61g protein, 18g carbs, 585 calories):

Meal 1: 1 lg egg, 1 slice bacon , 1 wedge LC asiago, 1 oz. half-n-half: 12g protein

Meal 2: 2 oz turkey, 1/2 oz alpine lace swiss, 2 oz steamed carrots: 19g protein

Meal 3: 3 oz. 2% cottage cheese, 2 oz frozen cherries: 12g protein

Meal 4: 2.5 oz. flank steak, 2 oz asparagus: 18g protein

I had my surgery 3/28, I’ve lost 15 pounds in the first 2 weeks but now I’ve been stalling for the last week. I’m not sure what’s going on, maybe not drinking enough?

I lost 20 pounds in the first month but at some point hit a stall (I don’t weigh enough to know when the stall happened, but I’m sure it was around the 3 week mark). I spoke with my dr. And he’s concerned that with my exercise of aqua aerobics 3x’s a week for 1-2 hours each week may not be enough calories. Funny to be told I may need to eat more calories... I’m scared :)

I know I need to drink more Water too. TOM is right around to corner so it could be anything causing the stall. Fortunately I knew about it ahead of time because of all the posters before me that ran into the same thing. Meeting with my NUT next week. Fortunately I track everything I eat so I will have good info for her to review.

My luck it will be those damn Protein Bars I’ve been eating on the days I workout. They only have 200 calories and 9 carbs and I’ve managed to stay in low level ketosis but maybe my body doesn’t like them. I don’t want to have to go back to the Protein Drinks. :(

I had the sleeve on 3/27. HW was 289. Surgery weight was 269 and now three weeks after surgery, I am only down to 255. So although I have lost 35 pounds in total since my pre-op diet, I am at a stall and have been for two weeks. I am in the soft stage and have tried to get all my Water in and eat the right foods, but have not lost any weight in a week. Anyone else have a stall this early on? It so frustrating! I don’t feel like I am eating too much and I am working out five days a week! Help!!

I was sleeved 03/26. Lost 8 pounds first week. Nothing second week. Gained 1 pound 3rd week. I am not even on solid food yet! Really does get frustrating even though I know that I have to lose when I am eating so little. Ugh.

I was sleeved 3/19. I lost 10 lbs/week for 3 weeks and have now stalled. I started puréed foods on 4/10. I went back to work on 4/11. My nurse thinks I’m not getting enough calories and I’m not eating often enough (I work in a busy emergency department). I exercise every day. I hesitate to add more calories because at some point fact that I’m using more energy than I’m taking in should make me lose weight.
I know I’m having trouble adjusting to puréed foods - they seem so heavy after weeks of fluids. But I know it will get easier. I know that I should listen to my nurse and work on eating more healthy calories more often. This is an adjustment - a huge life change - and I’m giving myself some room to get it right, as long as I don’t fall into old, bad behaviors.
And I definitely need to drink more Water, which feels crazy. I’ve always loved water and she’s to be able to drink a gallon a day without even trying.

We can all do this. If we keep doing what we’re supposed to do, what’s supposed to happen will happen! [emoji846]

I was March 26.

It’s been about 23 days or so.
I’m feeling a little less heavier now.

Everything is normal, diet is going well as well.

Only issue is that I feel I’m not walking enough.

I was sleeved on 3/20/18. I only weigh once a week or I'll go crazy. I've lost 20 pounds post-op as of Monday. I haven't stalled yet. I'm not losing as much as I'd like though. I have A LOT to lose though. I definitely shouldn't complain about 20 pounds in a month. My doctor told me that she wants me to get 80g of Protein a day. I definitely can't eat that much, so I'm still having to do 2 Premiere Protein Shakes a day, then I get the other 20 with food.

      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?

      3. Creekimp13

        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!

      · 8 replies
      1. istytehcrawk

        The wonton wrappers are 31 carbs (1 fiber and 1 sugar) for eight wrappers; each lasagna/taco uses two wrappers. At my one-month follow-up, my surgeon said just to worry about protein/liquids, not the other macros, and she said to work toward 1,000-1,200 calories per day, but that it'd take a while to get there (I'm averaging 500-700 per day currently, with at least 60 carbs).

      2. FluffyChix

        How were they? They look great!

      3. istytehcrawk

        Haven't tried the taco ones yet, but the lasagna ones are AMAZING. Like, as good as or better than regular lasagna.

      4. istytehcrawk

        Update: the taco ones are okay, but the lasagna ones are SO MUCH BETTER.

      5. Creekimp13

        YUM! Gonna steal this!

      My jeans were literally starting to fall off me, so I caved today and bought a pair of 26/28s to hold me over until capri weather hits, hopefully in the next few weeks.
      The important part, though, is that I bought them at WALMART! I haven't been able to buy pants there in YEARS because they didn't go to my size. Unfortunately, I still had to pay $17 (so much better than the $60ish at Catherine's though), because the 26s that were on clearance for $9 were still too small to be comfortable. SOON, though!

      1. istytehcrawk

        I probably would've held off with buying them, but mine were so baggy they looked awful, and I'm a reporter so I have to look at least semi-presentable and the 28s just didn't fit that bill anymore -- after only about a month!

      2. Mattymatt

        That's a really great feeling! Keep up the dedication. :-)

      3. Newme17

        Oh yes, appearance is good for business, I get ya! I don’t really work now, so leggings and T-shirt’s is all I ever wear. I’ve decided that my church attire needs to be amped up from my regular attire. Lol. Gonna try to find some dresses. How about dresses? Do you like them? They can be forgiving, as you go down in size, I think.

      4. istytehcrawk

        Never been a fan of dresses, no. That may change as I shrink, but I doubt it.

      5. Newme17

        Exactly how I feel about them...although my thoughts have slightly changed...SLIGHTLY! I’d have to try a bunch on to see which doesn’t highlight my now-still belly. Haha!
