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!

      This is completely unreal but two days in a row now I have seen less than 200 pounds on the scale for the first time in over 15 years. I am a pound away from my first goal of 199 at 13.5 months post op. Time to set a new goal for the New Year!

        Yes, continue to fight this with Cigna! Ask what process they require for a possible review of your case? Ask your surgeon and his team to help you clarify and challenge.

        Since weight loss surgery has gained more popularity and momentum - Cigna from our experience is playing games with their patients who wish to get healthier. It is egregious that Cigna would rather pay for someone's weight related heart attack, hernia, diabetes, sleep apnea and/or other costly conditions then being pro-active! As for ourselves, we tired of jumping thru they're hoops putting off my surgery until April or May 2019 with continued ridiculous, redundant requests. Yet, we know of a colleague where Cigna was cooperative and approved without a hitch.

        Because I needed weight relief off my injured left knee when exercise and dieting were no longer effective... We made the decision to self pay and get on the road to self restoration sooner than later. I wanted to start my new year with a hope and future. For us, the Cigna mill was becoming just to stressful. And, we hold a premium policy with a reputable international corporation. They refuse to pay for vitamin regime now, too.

        Your Cigna story may be better. Not to discourage you - you may or may not have a fight. It is your health and worth fighting for. Do let me know what transpires, will you? Many best wishes for a very positive outcome.

        I don't know anything specifically about Cigna, but maybe they were thinking about the cosmetic kind. Maybe you should have said "bariatric surgery" or asked specifically about their benefits for medically necessary bariatric surgery? I got lucky and my insurance had very good coverage and benefits for WLS and I was approved on the first request. Out of $50,000 billed for the surgery I only had to pay $600.00.
