How Long is too Long for a Stall?



Recommended Posts

I’ve been the exact same weight for the last 5 weeks? I’m about 6 months out and I’m down only 46 lbs, my HW 298 SW 282, I started working out, and believe I’m losing inches, but I’m so discouraged at my progress.

Just keep going. I had a brief stall and was working out 5 days a week and still couldn't budge the scale...but one day it just ended lol. Keep working out and eating well and it'll be fine.

measure to find out for certain. Physically being smaller is sometimes much more important than a number on the scale...

(I just lost 6 lbs of Water weight in 2 days but my measurements are the same 😒 so it doesn't make one bit of difference in the long run, but those inches are usually fat lbs being shed 🙌)

I've been the same weight (give or take a pound) for the last 4 weeks, but in that time I've also moved in a belt notch and a watch notch, so I know there's more to what's happening with my weight loss. I work out almost every day and watch what I eat.

Be patient and keep with your routine. If there's other reasons that you're not losing, it's time to be honest with yourself as to why this may be happening.

Good luck

My scale has been stalled out for a couple of weeks now. Though I know it happens, and this is a normal part of the process, it’s annoying.

A stall is great time to re-evaluate your eating and activity. I’m checking in with myself by logging my food. And I’m going to hide my scale, because I attach too much emotion to what it says

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
