If you've scanned the threads, EVERYBODY hits a stall around Weeks 3 or 4. Everybody! It's normal. Your body is adjusting to the trauma it's been through, then adjusting from liquids to soft foods and soft foods to solids. It's normal. Don't be discouraged, it's okay. Hang in there. The scale will move in a week or two.

Yep definitely normal. I was mad as heck too. I swear I called my NUT 20x's during the first month! LOL

People have reposted this a lot of times over the years. Good information but I'm curious if she stayed the course and made it to goal. She sort of dropped off the radar a little over 2 years ago. She started out at 565 lbs and her last update on her ticker shows she made it about half way to goal. When you have 400 lbs to lose, numbers on a scale don't mean as much to you as they would to somebody that is only looking to lose a quarter of that (not to imply that 100 lbs isn't a lot of weight to lose).

Some people realize at a certain point post-op that they are no longer a help on here and their frustrations with questions that have been discussed in the past are starting to show so they just fade away. I have a feeling Inner Surfer Girl was probably at that point and it showed in the way she worded this post. Starting a sentence with "Guess What" conveys frustration with the people that aren't at the same point in their journey as she was.

I think most people that post a question on here already know the answer before they ask but are looking for encouragement and optimism. Your success is very encouraging but I don't think she was at the point where she could justifiably use such preachy rhetoric when addressing questions from people new to this process.
