So, is a stall when you lose absolutely NO weight in a certain period of time... or could it be if you only lose, say, 2lbs in 2 weeks? How do you know you've hit a stall? Is it just a period of very slowed weight loss or none whatsoever? How many days of no weight loss do you wait before you say "hey, I hit a stall"?

I've been gaining and losing the same 2 lbs for 2 weeks. For me this is a stall

@mousecat88

yes, i believe that if you don't lose any weight for 3 weeks+, that is considered a stall.

some OP might say they haven't lost any weight for (1) one week, (2) weeks - not a stall.

there is the dreaded common stall at 3 week

stalls happen to most OP - very common,- this too will pass☺️

keep up the good work while your weight goes down!!

@AJP

your 2 lbs up and down - is not considered a stall - bad luck, but not a stall!!😉

For me, when I stalled right after surgery, it lasted for a little over 2 weeks. My weight didn't go up, it didn't go down - it stayed exactly where it was. 255.5. Funny cause I also temporarily got stuck pre op at 266.6 🤷🏻‍♀️

I never could consider it a "stall" maybe I think in a less complicated manner, maybe a little naive, but I prefer "pause" . Your body is recouping itself before it starts a renewed amount of loss. It is going to come, stop and be proud,of all you have accomplished thus far. Be proud of your body for what it can do, not constantly berate it for its imagined sins. Not only you emotionally,but your body physically just underwent major surgery. Give yourself a hug and be grateful for what has improved for,you.😝🏡🌸🌺☀

In the strictest sense per Dr. Atkins, a stall is considered to be 3 weeks with no move on the scale or measuring tape. The second is as important as the first...

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
