How long have was your longest stall??



Recommended Posts

HI!

I had surgery last october. I lost 63lbs by may. I haven't lot anything else since May. My surgeon says it can happen and my body is adjusting and to step up the cardio and it will start coming off again. But def starting to get worried. Has anyone else had a long stall and then still had success. I really want to get to at least 100lb down.

Are you tracking your calories? Are you still following your diet plan? Are you exercising and getting enough Water in? Most stalls happen initially while your body is adjusting to caloric intake changes then once it balances it the stall breaks. But you still have to continue to watch what you're eating, track what you're eating and exercise regularly. If you can provide us a little more information we may be able to help you a little better.

Have you spoken with your nutritionist? If so, what is he / she saying?

Stalls can happen at any point, but that’s a long one since May.

My longest was a bit over three weeks in July. I have been stalled this month as well for the last two weeks.

It is common to stall at points where your weight was stable in the past, or after losing a good amount of weight for sure. Definitely after more than a month to six weeks it would be time to closely evaluate diet and exercise to see if it is a stall or are you inadvertently in maintenance phase.

It certainly is possible for you to start losing again, but what are you eating? Are you tracking? Have you started snacking? Are you exercising?

I haven't been tracking calories, honestly im probably not eating enough. I have been working out twice a week but need to do that more. My Water in take has been great. I haven't talked to a nutritionist , just my surgeon and my endocrinologist. I do have PCOS and hypothyroidism and some of my numbers were a little higher than they should be at my last check up. My endo told me the same to go back to counting calories and up the exercise. I was just hoping someone had been in the same spot as me. I know the work is up to me ! Thank you all for your replies!

I'm sure a lot of people are in the same boat, at least you know what the causes are and how to fix them!

Almost 3 weeks and then 3 lbs. dropped off in 3 days, so I guess it's my body adjusting. I'm only 4 months out though and all these stall/regain posts are starting to make me nervous. :( Good luck with it and I hope it ends soon!

I've been on a 2 week stall. but i'm sticking to the exercise, and may reduce my calories to push it forward again.

I’m going through the same thing. 7 months out from surgery and haven’t lost anything in 8 weeks!!! I’m counting calories, getting 1000 to 1200 a day but I’m not exercising. I’m going to make myself exercise…I hate to exercise, but I think that’s my only hope to shed these last 20 lbs.!!! 😩 I’m frustrated and so afraid of the scale moving in the opposite direction!

Stall is over! I've been losing about a pound every 2 weeks. and i'm totally fine with that. One thing new: i'm working with a personal training for the last month.. and I LOVE it!

Stays can be frustrating. the thing that popped into my mind was food tracking, Protein, and Water intake. Despite the recent point of my surgery, I have seen the water and calorie intake jumpstart the loss. If your body thinks it's starving or dehydrated, it will hold on to weight. Please track your calorie, protein and water intake. Also, keep track of your body measurements, even if the scale may be slow in weight loss you be losing inches. Good luck!

      Going through a lot of personal issues...came to visit my mom to try and figure out what I need to do. I'm really experiencing that head hunger I keep hearing about. In my lowest moments I feel most hungry. My stomach hurts like I'm starving. Trying to get in and see a therapist ASAP. Just really struggling to keep it all together. It's really weird to feel like this and not have food...I feel lost. SOunds so ridiculous. Sorry to be a downer, just been a hell of a day. 😕

      Had my one month (really, a day short of 6 weeks) post-op appointment today. Everybody seemed pretty happy with how things are going, and I'm now officially in Phase III (long-term bariatric eating phase), with the caveat that rice and pasta are still not allowed, and no alcohol until at least the three month mark. (Not a problem.) But I'm cleared to have fruits and veggies! 🥦🍎🥗🍊🍇🍓 So exciting! I want an apple so badly. (OK, like, a third of an apple, with peanut butter, because I'm not sure a full apple will fit in my stomach, and eating something without any protein feels wrong.)

      I'm also cleared to exercise, though I've been advised to start slow with weights and to stop if I feel any "tearing" (😨) in my abdomen. Back to the pool with me! (I hurt my foot, so walking is out right now. I hate it. Swimming and starting with weight lifting should do a lot for my mood, though.)

      Scheduled 11/05/2018 for the second time to get a gastric sleeve. woke up from surgery with the nurses telling me. They were unable to do surgery .unable to introduce Laparoscopy when it needed to be. had to abort it. Too dangerous for me. I was so Very Depressed. I'm doing better with the depression. I must believe My Doctor Aborted surgery to Protect me .But I wanted this surgery so bad. Well I'm suppose to see him on 11/16/18 to discuss alternative methods. Hopefully I can Reschedule it for the third time

      5 days Post op Update:
      Well today is 5 days. I feel great! I still have some gas i am dealing with but with each sip comes a burp. Hopefully this part will be done with soon. I started my blood thinners shots this morning as they stopped them day after surgery due to too much drainage. I went back to work yesterday, didnt do much! My boss made me sit in her office all day lol.. but i am back and i am feeling good. I was able to get my liquids in yesterday and had my first BM yesterday, with another following this morning! I think i am doing pretty well for just having surgery. My weight is still up. I had gained almost 14 pounds during surgery due to gas and liquids, and lost 10 of it to date. Have 4 pounds to go before back to surgery date weight!
