Just for perspective, you're frustrated at ONLY losing 58lbs in two months? Perhaps setting realistic expectations is in order?

@Hungryman I know it can be frustrating but you are really doing good so congratulations...one of the posters posted his weight loss journey for 10-12 months and he lost slow but the big picture was he lost about 90 or so lbs in that time frame...his point was “Look at the big picture” when I think about it, really makes a lot of sense...I try and keep that thought in the back of my mind.

You’re doing awesome. Keep up the good work.

Are you tracking your fat loss?
Are you following your diet plan?
Are you drinking upwards of 128oz of Water?
Do you know your BMR?
Are you eating less calories than your BMR?
Are you exercising?
Are you tracking your food at all?

Congrats on the weight loss, DO NOT lose sight of that!

I've had so many days where I've gained weight or didn't move at all, but lost fat %.

58 pounds is awesome! I agree the stalls are frustrating. Mine last 7-10 days and then pass. It is your body adjusting to the new weight

It's important to track EVERYTHING if you are having questions about your progress, the only way to identify problem areas, is to have the data to locate those problem areas.
Peanuts are very high in fat and calories.

Tracking fat loss can be accomplished with any number of fat measuring devices, from the old school pinch calipers to an impedance measuring device.

While stalls are frustrating, they are out body's "time out" to adjust to the dramatic weight loss.

58 lbs in 2 months is a lot of weight in a rather short period of time. Give yourself and your body some credit!

Start tracking your measurements. It's likely that your body is what I call "redistributing".

My weight loss has been slow, but steady and on the weeks where I don't lose anything, I'm shrinking in size in other places. So, while you aren't seeing the scale change, look for other measurements of progress.

Hi Hungryman! So I am just going to answer your question. I just come out of my longest stall today. It was three weeks and I am five months out. All people are different, all stalls different (yadda, yadda)--but from personal experience stalls last a few weeks.

I’ve been stalled for quite some time. Up and down the same pound for what seems like forever BUT I’ve dropped a full size during that time! I’m also 11 pounds under my goal weight. Not sure I’m happy about it and I am trying to add calories, but at less than 5 months out, I can only eat so much. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Lord, I lost 9lbs the 1st week(I spent 5 days in the hospital d/t hemorrhage/emergency surgery/blood transfusion), 6lbs the 2nd week. Started at 222lbs on the day of surgery, now still stuck at a 15lbs loss for the past 4 weeks. I keep hoping that my body is just holding onto everything until my blood gets built back up but it is frustrating! I thought I would be much further along now so 58lbs in 2 months sounds phenomenal to me! Keep up the good work and it will come!

      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!
