Weight Standstill



Recommended Posts

I am at 5 weeks post op and am at a standstill with my weight.
I was very sick for about 2 weeks and am just now able to incorporate soft foods into my diet.
I want to continue to lose slowly, wondering if anyone else has experience they can share ?

Stop weighing yourself every day - Keep on the journey and it will break lose and you will start losing again

If you're following your surgeon's plan, then you've just hit your first stall. Almost everyone has their first stall sometime during the first 4-6 weeks after surgery. Just stick to your plan and the weight will start to drop again.

Oh the infamous 3 week stall that hits anywhere between weeks 2 and 6. ((hugs)) It's awful. Hang in there!!

If you're getting your Protein and Water in then yes, this is the normal 2-5 week stall. Can happen anytime in there. My weight loss slowed (but didn't stall) to 1-2 pounds a week during that time. I'd be the exact same weight 2 or 3 or even 4 days in a row (down to the tenth) and then I'd lose 1 pound. Did that for about 3 weeks and lost 6 pounds over 3 days over Thanksgiving. Now I'm back to about a pound a day.

All that to say, this is normal. You'll make it through. Yours might be a little longer since you're just now integrating normal foods.

Got Bronchitis that affected my asthma. Needed to get dreaded steroid shot. Gained 4 lbs overnight! Hope it comes off & then doesn’t produce stall. Never had that Initial 2-5 week stall. I’m about 10 weeks out.

I do weigh myself every day. Sometimes I stall, sometimes I lose weight, sometimes I put on a pound. But over the months, the overall trend has been downwards. If you're doing the right thing, it will come off.

In my support group- one of our mantras is trust the process. I’ve never been fast loser. But I’m steadily losing. Then of course having to take 2 steroid shots from having bronchitis that affected my asthma showed 4 lb weight gain literally overnight! Tried not to panic. It came off but it was definite set back in overall weight loss. Nothing I could do but just keep moving forward.

      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. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        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.
