I’m about 5 weeks post-op and for the last week and a half/2 weeks my weight has stalled. Has anyone else experience this? Any recommendations?

Thanks!

All of us have! Very common. You can try and break the stall like i do, Do a complete flush of the body, Fast for a few days.

Also I have said this a billion times here - DO NOT WEIGH YOURSELF EVERY WEEK, YOU WILL END UP IN A RUBBER ROOM WITH A JACKET THAT BUCKLES IN THE BACK

by the way who's lion is that? Nice Cat

everybody. Do a search on the "three-week stall" (although it's not always the third week - sometimes it's the second - or fourth- or fifth - but at any rate, sometime within the first 4-6 weeks of surgery). You will find HUNDREDS of posts on this if you search it.

P.S. Don't fast. You need the nutrition for healing. Just stick to your surgeon's program. The stall WILL break, I promise.

Mine started in week 3 and lasted for 2 weeks. It was concerning then but it is coming off regularly now. Just stick to the plan. It will come off.

just to repeat - STICK TO YOUR PLAN. The weight loss will start up again. Stalls are common and will happen again and again throughout your weight loss journey. Just stick to your surgeon's plan and stay off the scale if you have to. But the weight loss WILL start up again.

Mine started at 3 weeks and lasted 2 weeks. I started upping my Water as I know I wasn't getting enough and tried to get more calories in. I was only getting 300-500 a day, most days 300-400. Now I get around 500-600 and I have been losing again. Keep trusting your program it really works.

Found this on FB and it's been pretty accurate for me. Lost over 20 pounds right after surgery very quickly then things were slow from week 2-5ish but since then it's been coming off at a pound or so a day.

ETA: this is from some Keto thing so ignore the starting weight part but it seems to fit for me and others after surgery.

Everyone does. Your weightloss will not be a steady burn, it will come in fits and starts. You will go weeks sometimes without losing anything, and then drop a bunch all at once.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
