Weight loss plateau already?



Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I had gastric sleeve exactly a month ago. I lost a lot of weight very quickly from the pre-op diet and the first week after surgery (35lbs in total).

So it's been a month and my weight has stayed the same for THREE WEEKS. Is this weird? Is this normal? Is this bad? I am getting no response from the aftercare team and I'm just baffled/worried.

I had a 3 week stall after initially losing 43 pounds after the first month. Even now I have only lost 66 pounds and am losing very slow.

So, I think it is totally normal to stall and then lose slow. Good luck!

Thanks so much for the advice everyone. I googled "three week stall gastric sleeve" and was so reassured to see it is a very common issue to do with liver and glycogen stores. Have decided to not weight myself until my check up appointment in two weeks time. Thanks again everyone!

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
