Another Stall? Or is this it?



Recommended Posts

On the 19th of this month I will be 4 months post op. I only weigh myself once a week just so I won't become obsessed with the numbers but I did notice that my last few weigh ins have been the exact same weight. Pounds and ounces. Exactly the same. Is this yet another stall or at 4 months am I through losing? How is it possible to weigh exactly the same down to the ounces for weeks?

I'm 4.5 months post op myself and if I didn't exercise I'm fairly certain that my weight loss via restriction would be tapered off to maintenance mode at this point.

I noticed this to be the case when I stopped working out every day I hit a stall for 3 weeks. Once I started again working out every day, the scale started moving again, about 2 lbs a week counting my calorie limit of 1200/day.

Good Luck getting the scale moving again

Stalls are a part of the process, weekly weights are helpful but just let it go!!!! The scale will eventually come down if you stick to your plan.. Hope this helps!!!

Does anyone else find that if they don’t exercise the weight does not drop? Maybe it’s my metabolism but I am a very slow loser and I have noticed that if I do not incorporate some type of exercise into my routine, I barely lose anything regardless of how healthy I eat. I realize diet and exercise work together, I just think it’s interesting how the body works.

I would go 3 weeks without losing then drop over the course of a week to 10 days, hang in there !

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
