Breaking the 3 week stall!



Recommended Posts

So glad to know I'm not alone! I'm going through this right now. I feel slimmer, but the scale hasn't moved. I'm doing the program, probably could drink more Water than I am. I literally have been worrying thinking maybe due to my PCOS I'm going to be that person that loses only 25 pounds and that's it. Or else maybe my body is in starvation mode and doesn't know what to do. It's hard when I'm doing my best and really trying to not have that reward of a lower weight...I keep reminding myself it's my health I'm trying to get back, not my figure. Very mentally challenging at this point.

Yesss!! Especially being newly sleeved. The mental challenge is the hardest. My Dr. was just like go with it. You WILL lose weight and the way you eat will always be this new way. He said he doesn’t even care about the Weightloss this soon because it’s not important. What’s important is following the plan. I can honestly say I’m not perfect with the plan, but if you think about it you’re going to drop weight. I was almost 2 weeks stalled then bam 2lbs down the other day and 2 yesterday (I almost didn’t weigh today for fear I was gonna be stuck at yesterday’s number). The mental struggle is real!!

This is good to know! I don't have any cravings for sweets, or bread or junk foods. But I do have cravings for juicy steaks and roasted chicken...must be my body craving protein! Also broccoli, I can't wait for broccoli. I guess craving healthy foods is a good thing right? I'm just hoping that my stall will stop soon, so I know that I did the right thing with this surgery. Even though I know I did, it's just a new normal that's hard to get used too. This site has helped me so much. Good luck on your continuing journey!!

Im 4 months out of vsg. Here came the 3 week stall. And still stalling. Back to Protein Shakes, to get my Protein in. This is the only thing I can think to do to break this stall. I do know that my clothes are fitting diffrently, just wish the number on the scale would move.

I'm 3 months out (ESG) and now I'm going thru hell - my 1st stall. I guess I shouldn't complain since I didn't experience a stall until now but boy does it suck. I'm finally a "healthy" bmi and this is what I get for my effort. I also started a Water aerobics class last week so it's like a double punch. I just hope it doesn't last too long.
