Is it possible to stall at 2 weeks???



Recommended Posts

I had my sleeve April 19th, the first 2 weeks I was losing weight but after the second week I have just stopped losing. The scale stopped moving up or down. It's been the same for 2 weeks now. I'm eating the right foods, walking and doing as much as I can on my side. Has this happened to anyone? I'm feeling confused and have moments of regret since I still have pain from time to time.

This absolutely happened to me! I was stalled for 3 weeks - then lost 10 lbs in one week. Don’t stress - your weight loss will start again! I know it’s easy for me to say but at the time I was freaked out too!

I am in my 2nd month as had my operation on April 3. I have stalled twice. First time 9 days and this time for a week. So it is frustrating. I am going to add more shakes and less food today. See if I can jumpstart this again.

pretty much everyone has their first stall sometime during the first month after surgery, so yes - that's normal. I stalled weeks 2 and 3. My weight loss started up again during week 4, and I dropped like 6-8 lbs practically overnight.

It's perfectly normal. Most people stall around Week 4, but it's possible, every body is different to stall at Week 2. Your body just went through a major trauma, so it's adjusting and learning about the new you. Stalls are inevitable and part of the WLS process.

Yep! I stalled on Day 12 after surgery, and stayed in that stall for a week and a half. Not fun - but a reminder that just because your body should do something, doesn't mean it will. I mean, there;s no earthly way your body should not be losing weight on 500 calories a day - but there it was. Just strap yourself in - it's going to be a long and eventful journey!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
