Stall at eight months?



Recommended Posts

Is it normal to stall for three or more weeks at around the eight month mark? I was 360.8 the day of surgery and I am down to between 244 and 248 now. (I've been fluctuating between these weights for the past three weeks). I'm going to be re-introducing swimming in addition to my walking, but the stall still is starting to worry me.

I am 7.5 months and down 100lbs and have been in the same 5lb range now for the past 2 months.

I mean, at least the two of us are no longer morbidly obese, but still...

Typical Try a fast or cleanse worked for me - I would not panic we all have been stalled.

yes - I hit several stalls on my journey. They seemed to last longer the further out I got. There were a couple of times I thought, "well, this is it...", but then my weight loss would start up again.

You and I are nearly identical--surgery day weight, current weight, eight months. I've been doing a dance around the 242-244 range for two weeks now, and I'm choosing not to panic (despite the panic wanting so badly to erupt) because I was losing so steadily for most of the fall so it seems inevitable that my body would suddenly go "WAIT." I don't have any wisdom about when it will end, but at least: This has to be normal, since I'm right there with you, too!

I literally just feel like I'm done. I have made practically no progress for the last 3 months. I feel like this is it for me sometimes. Its so depressing :(

you should still be able to lose weight - but unfortunately, you may have to cut calories or bump up your exercise to do it. I was trying to maintain in the 130s for awhile, but it was too hard to sustain. I could have, but evidently, it wasn't important enough to me to do what I needed to do to stay there.

Stall seems tentatively broken. Will know for certain tomorrow, but I think that adding swimming back into my regimen has helped.

Everyone loses at different rates, and your starting weight was actually fairly low.

In positive news, stall definitely broken. Down to 242.9 this morning.

Isn't it crazy how it works like that? The same weight for days in a row and then boom - 3-5 pounds down in 1 day!

I feel like im gonna drop 10lbs suddenly to make up for the past few weeks stalling. Sitting right on my lows as of this morning.

Honestly, I expect to hit a stall next two weeks, but I'm hoping the swimming can prevent the holiday stall. I'm still eating primarily protein-heavy, but I've discovered I can tolerate certain sweets in moderation. (like a cookie with my protein)

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
