it does tend to slow from that point.

1. track your food - cant work the problem without data

2. hydrate - get that Water in

3. oddly enough make sure your eating enough. If after tracking you find yourself below 1000 calories you should try to bump up a few hundred.

4. Protein - hit your protein target. if you are low you will lose muscle mass and that will decrease your metabolism.

5. No added sugar - watch those packages. 80% of packaged food has added sugar

6. cut out all simple carbs - that's just another form of sugar

7. complex carbs from your veggies

8. Zero fruit if you are stalled.

9. if you are not doing so already then add weights to your workout routine to build muscle mass and increase metabolism.

good luck and stay positive. A negative outlook always has a negative outcome.

Everything Allwet said. It's either lower your intake, or add some activity.

I drink nothing but Water & Protein. Are you drinking liquid calories?

I had the same stall too. Up and down 1-2 lbs, but hovering the same average for about 2 months now. Went through a bunch of stressful time with quitting one job, starting a new one, packing up and moving across state lines. The packing and moving dropped me about 6lbs over a couple weeks and stalled since. I am more active than ever now - swim every day with my kid and go on walks. I am eating about the same, still Proteins first. Semi frustrated, but haven't reached a panic or concern stage yet. Just trying to figure out what I feel actually.

      I had my VSG on 11/19/18. All went very smoothly at the hospital, I was able to get up and walk a bunch, and was discharged at 11 am the next morning. Unfortunately, at about day 6 I noticed that I had thrush and am still taking meds to get rid of it. The first was Nystatin and now on Diclofenac. I also got VERY constipated from the iron supplements, but luckily some Miralax unclogged me. My highest ever weight was 319lbs, I was 282lbs at my first visit with my surgeon and 270lbs on my surgery date. As of this morning, December 9th I am 245lbs.

      Well, I am still on schedule for a December 26th surgery, but no longer sleeve, but instead bypass. Here is a link to my latest YouTube video explaining why the change:

      Still stuck at a 50# weight-loss after three years. Starting to think the rest is never going to come off. I have decided to see a bariatric doctor, where I currently live, since I have moved away from the one that did my original surgery. Also starting to wonder what weight-loss percentage is considered a failure for this surgery. I don't want to be one of the unsuccessful stories, but I'm becoming very discouraged. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I lost the weight I did, but why won't the rest GO?!
