Weight loss stall and fluctuations



Recommended Posts

My weight loss keeps going up and down , since last 1 month. I dont know what to do and what not.

I was sleeved on 4th june 2018, its 6th month running and i was 270lbs, right now i am 213 lbs.

I am not quite happy with the progress and confused as well as worried about what to do.

Don't worry about stalls, they're beyond your control anyway. Keep to your plan and get your exercise and eventually the stall will break.

This is a great time to pay attention to how your clothes fit, how comfortably you can sit in chairs, etc. Have you checked your measurements?

I was sleeved in July and I also feel like I have been in a stall for the last 2 months. I am trying to up my Water intake, reduce my diet soda intake, and increase exercise. I know we will get through it, But it is hard. I have my 6 month check in tomorrow, and I have barely lost any weight since my 3 month. Not looking forward to it. :(

I am almost a month out since my surgery. I lost almost 20 lbs the first two weeks. I only lost a pound this week. Should I be worried I’m eating too much?

No, its the body adjusting. I had the same thing. My stall really started around 3 + month, but this is also when Halloween. Thanksgiving, the holidays kicked in, so I am re-committing to the basics and seeing if that does it. You will be fine. So will I. :)

I was sleeved in 10/2015, have never reached my goal weight, and have been stuck at a 50 lb weight loss. I am seriously considering a revision of some sort. I DO NOT think a 3 year stall is normal. Seems unless I'm on starvation rations of 900 calories or less, I do not lose weight regardless of my activity level. Apparently, my body is excellent at survival mode. :huh: And, yes, until I moved to a new state, I was following up with my nutritionist and my surgeon (until my 1.5 yr visit) that I was doing everything they had instructed me to do, correctly. So I'm baffled. I really think I need a second opinion.

Wow, I hope you get the answer you are seeking. I also hope this is not me. I too feel at times like it makes no sense that I am not breaking the stall. I am now trying to slam Water and be more mindful of what I am eating, but I don't think I am eating too much either. I think I am always below 1000 calories a day. Good luck!

Just a little update: I have finally been able to get my stall moving again. It's slow, BUT the number on the scale is going down, so that has made me happier. My plan, right now, is diligent monitoring of my portions AND caloric intake per meal/snack. Still dealing with a slight up & down trend, but weight is trending down. That seems to be working right now, so onward & forward. I'm hoping that the stall is FINALLY vanquished. (fingers crossed)
