Help!!! Staled in 3 months!!!! WHY??



Recommended Posts

hello all.

I'm new to this whole posting stuff. I had surgery on September 23 2019. I weighed in at 457 the day off surgery. Its been a little over a 3 months now and I am down to 343.I know its a accomplishment but for the last 2 week I have stalled at this number. I have no idea what i'm doing wrong. I have 3 main meals daily. which total around 700-900 calories total. most of those calories are from lean white meat Protein 2 1/2-3oz. green vegetables. I take all my Vitamins like I should. I do about a 1 hour of cardio 6 days a week. 2-3 times a week i do some weight training. I'm just wondering if anyone had any suggestion or if anyone has ran into the situation. If not this is my rant for the day lol

It is very very typical - Chill out and ride it out it will break - I fast a little and mix up my diet a little to break them

You and me both nothing beats shagging a 100 plus pounds - You think you feel good now wait till you get to your goal - We are both going for the same Goal i hit it last week but going to shag another 20 and see if that is correct and better

Stalls are perfectly normal and perfectly frustrating. First and most important, you've done GREAT and should be very proud of yourself. That being said, you've lost a LOT of weight and your body just needs a pause for a minute to catch up with you. It'll start up again, really it will. Just stay focused on your exercise, Water, and Protein and it'll start moving again.

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.
