Normal to stall this early?



Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm almost 6 weeks out from sleeve. I was down 30 pounds..but I keep gaining and loosing 2 pounds. I can go to sleep at 218 wake up at 216...or vice versa..its so odd. Anyhow. I have not lost anything in about 2 weeks. Is this normal? I'm hoping I didnt just have my tummy removed to only loose 30 pounds. I'm eating well..following rules..and exercising 3 times weekly

I’m the same! Finding it very hard to get the scales to move downwards! I was revised from a band to a sleeve at the end of October and revisions can find it tougher to drop the weight! It’s so depressing... just keep focused on Protein and Water and it should work! 🤗

From what I've read, stalls can happen at any point. I'm not even a full 2 weeks out and have been stalled for a week. I plan to take a break from the scale and just wait it out.

Same here. It'll be six weeks Tuesday and I didn't lose anything during Weeks 4 and 5 but finally the scale started moving again today, so I have hope.

You really need to, weighing so often will tie you in "nots" and they biggest is I'M NOT LOSING! You lose in fits and spurts, not smooth like glass. Just the way it is, no use raging against it.

stalls can happen at any time. I would also think about what you are eating the day before.. did you have a lot of salt or any salt? Sometimes Soups, salt, seasonings , in the food can retain Water because of the salt in it. Try drinking more water or using seasonings that are salt free like Mrs. Dash.

No, I stayed within 600-800 calories and got my liquids in. Wait, yes I did! I started going to the gym during and ever since Week 4!

Yes this is definitely probably the cause
