I really don't like stalls



Recommended Posts

Had my surgery July 1. I was losing weight like crazy. I had one 4 day stall in August- not too bad. Then Sept rolls in, Already lost 58 lbs since July 1. I stalled from Sept 5 to Sept 12 (7 days) then I only lost 2 lbs ! Then stalled again from Sept 13 to Sept 20 and lost another 2 lbs this morning .. I hope it gets better tomorrow and next week. I am eating exactly same diet religiously 650-700 calories per day and tons of Water (over 100oz) , and 75-85g Protein every day . On another note I have been a lot more active and doing things around the garage and yard, cutting tree limbs, etc. I know I'm building muscle and my pants are getting more slack. I am thinking about getting into swimming at the gym to get some cardio in. Anyone have suggestions on how to keep the stalls from happening ? Thanks !

Oh gosh, they suck. No way to avoid. It's your body's way of catching up with itself. ((hugs)) Stay the course, continue to weigh, and eat to plan and it WILL happen. Congrats on your losses, you are doing phenomenally well!!

I have to hide my scale when stalls happen, otherwise I’ll be obsessive about it. They are part of the deal as our bodies adjust to extreme, rapid weight loss. Annoying, but inevitable. Keep working your program and keep your eyes on the big picture.

I'm a daily weigher too. You just have to resolve and accept that daily/weekly fluctuations and non-fluctuations are just happening. It is still hard!

Here's a snapshot of my last 1 year of daily weighing. Look how spikey it is. Most charts will show spikes or stairsteps interspersed with periods of flat line. But the overall trend of the graph will show downward movement.

Even though I'm a slow loser...9 months later I hit my first goal, 13 months I hit my goal 2, and exactly 19 months to the day from surgery, I hit my last goal 3. It will happen. But you have to remain laser focused and not allow yourself to derail. Or plan for derailment. Cuz trust me, derailment happens even in the face of planning for 100% compliance. Cuz that's just how we roll. Our lizard brain wants what it wants!

Hang in there!

      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.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      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!

        Click on your pic/name. A list will pop up and scroll down to “my surgery”. You can change Surgery specifics there.

        To adjust weight stay on that same page, look left and click on progress. Voila!

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