Recommended Posts

none at all or just this week? If the latter, you're having the dreaded "three week stall" that most of us have...

Sooo I’m 3 weeks post opp and no weight loss ... what’s the deal?! It’s this a real thing? Please tell me !

The three week stall is a real thing. Perhaps your holding onto Water weight? have you not lost anything?

Id be looking closely at every single thing you put in your body....

Your intake would be so low this early it's almost impossible to not lose weight....?

Not going to repeat above but Something is not balanced - Either you are holding Water or you are taking in to many calories?

Move a little more and change up your diet to break this little stall - I think you will find all of a sudden pounds are going to start falling off

So at my “2 week “follow up I was down ten pounds from my pre-op class 286... to then 274... now another week later according to my scale at home ... and I check it everyday habitually... I have been holding fast at 270 even. 1 I should clarify .... I’m not losing anything more than that . I read a lot of posts and some folks have lost like 40 pounds by now

40 lbs in three weeks? No - that would be extremely rare. The average WLS patient loses about 15-25 lbs in the first month. There are some exceptions, but again, those are rare. People that lose that much weight the first month are usually people who start off at something like 500+ lbs - like the people on "My 600 lb Life"

P.S. I started off at over 300 lbs and lost 16 lbs the first month, if that gives you any idea.

My average weight loss is 14 a month. My neighbor saw me for the first time yesterday and said Wow, you have lost a lot of weight, you look great! That made me feel great!

Everybody stalls in Week 3 or 4. It's normal. Don't sweat it. Don't be in a hurry, you just had the surgery. It'll happen.

      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.
