6 months ahead of you, doing the same at 200n yesterday I thought I did perfect but just above, today may I be back just below! Wearing my 1st Junior-sized leggings- a 19 but fits So NICE, please GOD----- I have come so far, let this be neither a stall nor stoppage. I have come so far to come so far! Let me show O.S.U.-😷--what really somebody my age can still do! 😛❤😛💔

I was stalled for a bit several weeks ago and it's slowed down for me even after the stall, but I've started doing a lot more cardio and strength training. I'm down to 300 pounds as of this morning. 114 lost from highest weight, 81 lost from surgery date.

I had surgery on March 8th and am down 70 lbs since surgery and 105 lbs from my highest weight. I have some challenges with food, at times I don’t listen to my pouch and take that extra bite of food, which results in me getting sick, but I’m working on listening to my body.

I’m also fearful of gaining everything back down the road. I’ve had several people tell me about a friend who had surgery years ago and gained all the weight back. I know everyone is different and I’m in control of my food choices but I can’t help but worry.

Overall, it’s been gong well and I’m really happy I finally made the choice to have surgery. 😊

That’s awesome progress. I’m right behind you. My surgery was March 4th. I feel the same as you. I struggle some days but don’t regret the surgery for one minute. I feel for the first time that I am living my best life. I too though worry about regain. I guess we just have to have faith in ourselves. Keep up the good work!

Stalled again at almost 5 months out. For about 2 1/2 weeks so far. I'm 50 pounds down but wishing this stall hadnt hit now. Onederland is only 22 pounds away and I'm feeling discouraged. Not really sure the best thing to do so I'm going back to supplementing my mini meals with Protein Shakes and ~700 calories per day. At least for a few days. I admit my Water intake has been poor over the past 2 weeks and I will push to ensure I get my 64-72 in today.

Does anyone have any other ideas for stall busters???

I keep hitting stalls too, but am trying to look at the big picture. What I’ve noticed is that I NEED Proteins. I’ve also noticed that for 700 calories a day doesn’t cut it. My body goes into starvation mode and the stall lasts longer. I’m down 58 lbs. it’s slow, but it keeps coming off little by little. Congrats on your loss so far. Keep on keeping on.

Thank you! Appreciate you sharing. This is definitely not a sprint and I’m in it for the long haul. Figuring out how this body works at my age is definitely a daily learning experience. 😌

I’m down 82 lbs and the only downer is that my boobs are pretty much gone :( I can’t do sweets and I haven’t had a sandwich (white bread) since my surgery. I started doing Beachbody focus t25 which I’m hoping will help tone a bit

Last Sunday marked 6 months since surgery. I have lost 83 lbs (118 from my highest weight). I’m starting to find my voice, have more confidence in myself and the decisions I make. I’m starting to shop at stores other than Lane Bryant or Torrid. I’m even exercising and kind of enjoy it!

I also find myself making poor food choices, some candy or a cookie instead of Protein. I’ve had a rough few weeks. My weight loss has significantly slowed to a crawl and I've had a few bouts of negative self talk and beating myself up, instead of acknowledging the decision and moving forward. I had an appointment with my therapist a few days ago, which helped and I will continue working on making better choices and not best myself up.

I'm scared because I don’t want to go backwards and regain the weight. The rational side of my brain is saying to take a deep breath, trust my tool and get back to basics. My irrational side of my brain is hysterically screaming that I’ve ruined everything, broken my pouch so I might as well eat another piece of candy.

I know this is going to take lots of hard work, sweat, maybe a few tears and I need to believe in me. If this were my best friend saying all of this you bet your a@@ I would be her biggest cheerleader, so now I need to do the same for me.

thanks for letting me rant. I don’t post very often but just needed to say these things to someone who might be able to relate. 😊

      I'm going in for a sleeve revision October 4th. It worked well for me, and I am not back to my starting weight. However, a revision is strongly encouraged at this time (there are additional medical issues). I have decided to forgo the insurance process, even though I know I would eventually be approved. "Eventually" is the key issue here. I have a small window to create this to where it will not impact my work or home life as much, and waiting for the insurance approval would take over a year.

      I just read @BoredCW's status post and also want to lament the loss of my butt.  Looking at me the side, my back is basically flat from my neck to my knees.  My jeans have lovely fabric folds draping from my backside from lack of filling.
      Two days ago, I was sitting on a worn couch at the gym and I could feel the springs and count how many I was sitting on.  Told the Kid and she said she wants to find her childhood alphabet fridge magnets in the basement to spell out words and have me sit on them and do some "butt-braille-reading" 😂

        HI-LAR-ious! I love your kid!!!

        Yeah, we all suffer from noassatall syndrome. :(

        Yes. I think the spandex in jeans is the only thing that helps keep the sag below the pockets form looking ridiculous. Even leggings wrinkle there.

        Ah, our disappearing collective butts.

        I am seriously considering changing my plastics plan. I am booked for an arm lift in December, but my summer obsession with arm exercises has improved the look of them quite a bit to the point that I think I may hate my butt more than my arms. Should I do a butt lift instead?!?! In conjunction with?!?!?

        I am trying to cultivate an obsession with butt exercises but its not working so far...

      4. 2Bsmaller18

        I don't think you could do both at the same time. For me personally it's arms. I have granny wrinkles down to my elbows. I can always dover my body with tshirts, pants, etc but unless I wear long sleeves my arms are an issue. I also can't wear a small enough jacket since it fits everywhere but too tight in the arms. They measure around 13.5 inches. Can you compromise and get the smaller arm lift. I don't know if that saves much $ or recovery but if your arms improved that much maybe just a tweek will work?

      On the 3 week plateau from hell.. It seems like an endless desert with sand dunes that represent the 1-2 pounds gain then dropped from day to day. Met with my weight loss group tonight and was told its normal. That this is sometimes like a step, plateau then drop, plateau then drop. Only for the plateau's to go on longer the farther away from the surgery date I get. Much like EDM, I can't wait for the drop. 
      On top of it all, I lost my ass. Seriously.. its gone. All that cushion that I enjoyed lounging on eating what ever I ate, watching what ever was on the computer or tv... is gone. That glorious support system is vamoosed. I know this because my ass (tailbone) hurts all the time. I'm sitting on bone now and its sore. I am my own literal Pain in the Ass! (My family would say whats new, but who cares about them.. my butt hurts.) I have yet to bring a pillow with me everywhere I go to sit on, but I'm getting ready to as I sit for my job working on computers. So far losing the weight is a Pain. I hope it gets better.

        Hang in there, the plateau will end eventually. Also I feel you on the butt thing.

      2. FluffyChix

        I have a butt pillow. I'm not proud. :D

        The plateaus suck!!!! Keep the faith and motor on!

      In a bit of a stall right now.   267-269 lbs the past week.   Almost wrote that as "367-369".   
      Still 158 lbs. lighter than my heaviest.
