Try Intermittant Fasting with alternate day restriction. I have found that continual caloric restriction really slows down the weight loss. Restricting to 500-600 cal every other day, alternating with normal intake (maybe 1000-1200) can trick your metabolism into thinking it is not really starving and can keep humming along.

⬆⬆ Intermittent fasting- highly recommend⬆⬆

Also more Fiber (more bowel movements) hydration and take a look at your diet to see if anything shouldn't be there (excess sugar, etc)

if you're carb sensitive (and a lot of us are), I'm not sure I'd add more carbs. Whenever I need to lose weight, I try to stick with the basic plan - Protein first, then unstarchy vegetables, and then, if I still have room left, a small serving of fruit or "healthy" carbs (like whole grain items). I also switched over to calorie counting when I was about a year out, since at that point I was physically able to eat a lot more than I was supposed to.

weight loss slowed to a crawl for me once I hit the year mark (and maybe even a bit earlier - I can't remember). It took FOREVER to get those last few pounds off. I did manage to lose 50 lbs in year 2, though - but it took a long time - slow going, lots of stalls - plenty of times when I thought "well, this must be it...", but then it started up again. You may be in the same boat...

I took a break and just tried maintaining after the first year. Then this past December I started losing again. I lost 5 lbs in my 23rd month and have kept it off. My body I think just needed that break to get going again.

Keep going as you change it up!!! I agree on alternating days. I am working off a 10 lbs regain and as I am carb sensitive bread is not happening I count calories and Protein and avoid carbs. Best to you as a send cheer your way!! PS I do not lose if short I’m sleep. 🌻🌻🌼🌻🌼🌼🌼🌻🌼🌼🌻🌼🌼🌼

I feel your pain. I'm in the same boat. I have been bouncing the same 2 to 3 pounds up and down for the last 3 months.

I'm in the same boat. I'll be 10 months post op this weekend and have 10 more pounds to get to my goal weight. Things have come to a screeching halt the last 6 weeks.

I'm eating on plan, exercising, and keeping at 1000 calories per day, as my program requires. At 160 pounds, I should still be losing at a good clip if I'm eating 1000 calories per day, since my total daily energy expenditure is about 1700 calories. But it's not really coming off.

I have loosened my intermittent fasting restrictions lately as I bumped up my calories because it was hard to get it all in, and I feel like that is also slowing my loss, but I simply can't get in 1000 calories per day without spreading my eating out more. I may try the alternate day restriction that another user suggested!

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
