Heyyyy I’m going through same thing and I had surgery about four weeks ago I’ve lost 20lbs also and I’m at a stall. I was told this happens around this time so keep doing what we doing and it will eventually end. I been getting on treadmill for about 20 mins and following my diet plan per doctor. Hang in there😊Good Luck✨

Ok Here I go again Veterians of this site! So lets just say you are a month out! It is all about the math! So time for AJ the proffessor to give you a math lesson

20 pounds in 4 weeks is 5 pounds a week

So lets take a look at this

26 weeks from Now will be six months and if you stay on course you will have lost 130 POUNDS

52 weeks from Now will be one year and if you stay on course you will have lost 260 Pounds Or 30 Pounds under your goal!

Like i said its all in the math and without the surgery you dang well know you would not be able to stay with the math

I have posted this same thing many times for many, It makes sense this is a journey Not a freakin sprint! Stay on course and Do Not let the Mind Games mess with you!

My daughter had bypass a year ago and she warned me against weighing myself every day...she said that it can be very discouraging when you reach a stall as you have described here....

I get my gastric sleeve tomorrow!

Hugs to all

Congratulations to you, @Mizztiterita and @kswin79 on your success so far! As AJ said, it will all work itself out in the end. Try to be mindful of all the changes you are experiencing. I'll bet you are losing inches even if the scales aren't moving. You are successfully following your plan. Have you measured to track the inches? I just started doing that to get my base before surgery, but it is something that was suggested to combat the inevitable stalls. Keep the faith, you're doing the right thing!

Good luck, @IAmGrace on your sleeve tomorrow! Will be keeping you in thoughts and prayers. Keep us posted as you are able during your recovery! (HUGS)

I'm almost 5 weeks out of RNY and "only" down 20. I am totally happy with this number. I'd rather lose slower and have my body recalibrate when needed and give my skin and nutrition what it needs - time to adjust. Also, I hit a stall at 3 weeks post op and it was when I saw the most dramatic changes in my appearance (neck and stomach) without even a pound down. Have you tried weekly pics or measuring? I think this will help you see that your body IS working and losing during the stalls, maybe just not on the scale.

Here is a pic from week 3 to week 4 when I lost 0 pounds. PSX_20200226_161250.jpg

I have been told the faster you lose weight the more saggy skin you can have. So this might be a good thing and you have much if any sagging.

I had a major stall at three weeks. Don't deviate from your plan and the scale WILL start moving again!

This is what I refer to as the dreaded 3 week stall and it happens to almost everyone around 3 weeks. It can last for a week or a few depending on the person. Just keep doing what you are doing. You’ll wake up one morning and be 6lbs down! I’m in the stall now. I had a sleeve in 2013 so I have gone through this before and know it too shall pass. So far you’re doing a great job with your weight loss. Keep up the good work!!

I'm 3wks out of a mini bypass on Monday and have only lost 14lbs. It's going a lot slower than I thought it would 😣

Please define a "mini bypass" for me. I don't know what that means.

Thank you.

Its similar to a RNY but only has one join instead of 2.
