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. 😊

      Yesterday I discovered stretchy pants. It was the first time that I walked into a normal store and dared to try on clothes in over many many years. Scary, but I found some guy chinos that I liked. I was even able to wear women's sizes even though the legs were wayyyyy too short.

      Down 31 pounds in my first month! OK, so a month and two days, but I'm counting it anyway. 😆
      At this point, I'm doing well overall. According to surgeons' instructions, I'm on soft foods for another week-ish. I'm so ready for solids - the soft foods can be such "sliders" and I have to be extra, extra careful.
      For example, my refried beans + dollop of plain Greek yogurt + tomatillo salsa verde became a problem. I never felt satisfied and felt I could have easily had a much bigger serving. Then, far worse was when I made homemade hummus - holy cow it is SO GOOD, but again - felt like I could have downed a quart, no problem. 😂
      It's (for me at least) extremely challenging to "eat mindfully" when the food is that soft. I mean for crying out loud, there's nothing to "chew on"! 😂
      So, couple of days ago - I committed to no more refried beans and no more hummus. Farewell my delicious friends. Going to focus on chicken and tuna and eggs for the time being (ground up til mushy, of course). 
      I'm hoping that once I get the go-ahead to introduce solids I will be able to feel the restriction. Because honestly? I'm only a month in, and I feel NO restriction. It's frustrating, but not the end of the world. Willpower was never my problem. But I'm so looking forward to that feeling I hear a lot on here when people say "Oh I ate half an egg and was SO STUFFED." This has....not been my experience. 😕
      Really hoping that's because my foods are so mushy/soft right now. We shall see. 
      Regardless, I'm 100 percent committed. I hear over and over how this tool is the most powerful for about a year, maybe/possibly a wee bit more. I will not sabotage that for the world. 
      So - doing my happy dance at 31 pounds down - I'm in a "weight decade" I haven't seen in a very long time. And it only gets better from here!

      Hi!
      Thank you for replying.   It means the world to me.  It also confirmed what I been feeling about which procedure to choose.   I fall into the category as you do and elected the sleeve as it seemed to be less invasive and recovery would be better and faster,  however I am so afraid to regain the weight back since I rarely eat and obesity runs in my family.   I have two siblings that had the bypass and they have been successful.  My sister was in the high 400's and is about 140 now and has been for several years since her procedure.  I guess I felt that the sleeve would allow me to have more control, however I realized that I can't control my genetics and that is one of the biggest reasons that I am here.  Yes, I have not always made the best choices but trust me when I say that I have been on the loss and regain + more rollercoaster weight ride for yrs! I have spent so much money as I am sure you have as well as many others who are going through this.  It is not easy and anyone who thinks this is a copout is crazy!!! This has been harder than anything I have done including hiring a personal trainer to kick my butt in the gym! And still with all the gym hours, clean eating "not to mention the clean eating cost" I knew it was time that I moved to the next step to finally be who I know in my head and heart cause when I see myself in the mirror,  well let's just say is not the girl I see in my mind. 
      So thanks again for your reply and I hope that we can keep in touch through our journey. 
      😊

      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.
