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 !

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
