Last time you saw your team? Highest weight? Age? Height?Type of surgery? Current diet type? Current exercise type? Medical complications/medications? Major life changes since surgery?

Do you log your food? You lose weight in the kitchen, not in the gym, the saying goes....

Yeah I log my food and I have a calorie tracker app and I don’t even go over the calorie intake, I’m under. Have you ever had a plateau and if so what did you guys do to get past it?

So true. No matter what, you can't violate the laws of thermodynamics. If calories in is less than calories used, she'll lose weight.

What is that calorie count?

Unfortunately your metabolism may have slowed and 1200 is around you BMR, and that's why you're not losing.

I have no experience with this, since I'm in my honeymoon loss phase right now. But I'd start over. Do a couple of weeks of liquid diet, and then move on to Protein rich foods. You'll need to find where the scale starts moving again.

I agree with SillyKitty with the back-to-basics liquid diet for a few weeks. Also, if you're not losing with 1,200 calories, you're going to have to go lower. If it were me, I'd try 800 calories a day - and make sure you're honest with yourself about those calorie counts.

Definitely cut out all of the extras like ice creams and nuts if you’re looking to drop calories. I’d agree with going back to liquids and or high Proteins only

1200 my fitness pal but I don’t intake that much and counting calories I burn from the cardio exercise I just don’t understand

Unfortunately not all cals are created equal and sustained weight loss is trickier than cals in cals out. What are you eating? Carbs as in bread and Pasta or carb counts (macros) ?

You may need to reconnect with your team for a revised plan and do a bit of research to get over this hurdle. Google (scholar) and YouTube (Doctors,NUT,Trainers) can be great resources

Research glycogenolysis, gluconeogenesis, lipolysis, and ketogenesis.

No carbs if I do have any carbs it would be oat meal in the morning occasionally. I might go check my thyroid I may have hypothyroidism maybe that explains the poor metabolism ...

      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.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
