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!

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!

      I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

        Feels great, doesn't it? Congrats! And track those measurements! I'd rather see inches disappear than pounds any day!

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
