Dear Week 3 Stall



Recommended Posts

Dear Week 3 stall,

Why did you have to happen now? I have my follow up with my surgeon tomorrow, and I wanted to show a larger weight loss. Instead, you had to come early, at week 2.

I understand why you show up.

I understand that you're only a temporary visitor.

I'm just frustrated. Especially since I know I'm losing inches.

From,

Neri

I feel that as well! It is squeaking into my week 4 and I just want to drop weight. I'm sure I'm loosing inches but we are in the middle of moving and I can't find my tape measure to check.

From what I understand, this stall is a very common thing. We will get through this :)

I forgot to take measurements before all this got going. I could kick myself because I know it is more dramatic than what shows on my scale! Don't get me wrong, 31lbs in 5 weeks is amazing but my clothes are falling off! lol

I forgot to take measurements at first too. But I am measuring now, and it's so nice to see that the inches are still going down even if the scale refuses to budge!

I’m at a stall at week 4 where I put on weight to now week 5 where I’m the same weight as starting week 4!! Super annoying too with the Aus summer and fluids going up!!! So I TOTALLY know your pain where you want the progress to show on the scales

but it does move (least what everyone says I’m just waiting and waiting) and waiting 😂 fingers crossed it clears up and you’re on the path again!!

I'm in a stall this week as well, but my surgeon told me that it's very common for weight to go up and down, up and down, but that overall the weight should be going down. I have been noticing other non-scale victories though, so I'm still happy and I know this is just a passing thing! We can get through it! :)

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      I had my Bypass Surgery on 04/25/2019 I'd weighted before surgery 308 and now 285. I get depressed because I thought it would be more. I follow all instructions from Dr.. Green walk every day work out and eating solid foods

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
