I have lost twenty-four pounds since having surgery on April 12th. I have hit a stall. (I am not discouraged. I will succeed with my weight loss. :) This is me cheering myself on! I need this some times!)

I had this surgery to be healthier for myself and my family. I will continue to eat healthy and keep my journals.

I plan on mixing my diet up this week and seeing if that helps. (I am having a hard time eating Breakfast due to time constraints at work. I have been drinking a Protein Shake and having coffee. What do you eat?)

Are any of you at a stall?

I was sleeved on 4/27. Friday is my 7 week anniversary. As of today I have lost 39 pounds since surgery. It would be amazing if I reached an even 40 by friday, but I won't hold my breath!

I am down 52lbs since my surgery April 4th, I find that removing all carbs and sugar from diet seems to produce the best results. Whenever I eat bread,rice,potatoes I tend to loose slower, usually to get over a stall I jump on a Liquid Protein diet for a day and it kick starts me right back up.

Excersing has definitely play a crucial part in my weight loss so be sure to get in the gym soon to help you achieve your goal.

Things to avoid all together

Alcoholic beverages, sugars as they cause huge eating binges atleast for me.

my breakfast when I have time is egg whites and a slice of deli ham mixed together. If not I do a coffee and Protein Shake same as you.

good luck

Hi J@Alabama, how long is your stall?

I had a gain and a stall at around 5 - 6 weeks, when I started eating solid foods, because all I could keep down was starchy foods like potato and banana. So I ate plenty of those, and I stalled ofcourse. When I brought my carbs under 50g, I started losing more steady again. If I don't see any loss in 3-4 days, I go a day fasting, or drink a Water pill and scale keeps moving.

I am nine weeks out and have been stalled for a little over a week. However the scales have moved today.

I am not overeating on the carb side. I actually think I wasn’t getting enough calories.

Thanks for all the input everyone!

      Starting to see a rise in trolling of the site, anyone can make a profile and antagonize the good people here, sad. Time for a break...

      Just wanted to give an update. I've been really busy lately with work and my husband had recent surgery. I was off work last week and taking care of him, amongst a nice visit from my mom.
      I'm getting super close to Onderland! I keep teetering around 201-203lbs. Its been this way for the last two weeks.
      I went shopping this past weekend for fall/winter clothes. I am officially no longer a plus size woman. I wear dresses every day, so it's crazy to say, but I hadn't bought any pants since I was a size 20. I only replaced my pants once from a 26ish to a 20 and then I just bought size 12/14 jeans this weekend  And I'm wearing a large in tops (previously a 4X) . It was such a surreal experience going in and being able to shop in this HUGE section of the store. Although, I'm learning, no matter what your size, clothes are still hard to shop for. I thought size would open all these wondrous opportunities, not so much LOL.
      Basically, I'm keeping busy and keeping my mind healthy. A part of that is I'm not hyper focused on the scale. I get more comfort from the NSV anyways.
       I hope to be online more this week

        I'm glad everything is going well on your end. Family first, always and of course, but we do miss your presence here. Congrats on your clothes shopping! I recommend to not go overboard, since you are still losing and will probably be much smaller by the time it gets really cold.

        Way to go!

        @macadamia thank you :) I am being careful not to buy too much, but my weight loss has slowed substantially. I'm not losing 10lbs-15lbs a month like I previously was. I'm lucky to get off 5lbs a month now. Not to say that I wouldn't lose a size after a couple months, but it's not as rapid. Plus I buy all my clothes from Marshalls and TJMaxx (who's return policy is practically forever), so if they don't fit when it gets time to wear them... then I'll return them for store credit to buy new stuff.

      Stall is finally broken and I am losing again. Stalls suck but I understand them much better now. I am still feeling great and have kicked my workouts up a notch. I went to an arm/abs class that turned out to be all men and "me".  The dudes walked in with their 30 lb hand weights and I have my little 7.5/10 lbs and I was thinking to myself...what did I get myself into, and am I going to embarrass myself?  Well I decided to stick it out and although I couldn't do everything the dudes were doing, I did a pretty darn good job of keeping up and I am proud of myself for being able to stick with it. I decided I am going back again tomorrow and I am going to kill it again. I belong there too!

        Good for you! I'm still on 3lb weights :( But, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. I'm glad you're feeling so well and able to work out so much! I'm sure that's really taking the inches off!

      The whole time I kept having a nightmare I wouldn't lose weight after all this. How horrifying to have it come true. I had surgery on the 8th. I haven't lost anything since. i drink my water, my protein shakes, I walk, but nothing. How could this be happening. Am I just doomed to be overweight forever? I am beyond devastated. Maybe something changes in the next couple months, but I am no longer hopeful.

        Calm down. You're still very swollen. Many doctors advise against weighing the first month because it can be very disheartening. Everyone heals at different rates. Just keep with your plan and you'll be ok. I promise, the scale will move soon - and BIG! It can take a full month for all the abdominal swelling to go down.
