I’m 3 weeks post op and I’ve lost 13 pounds. I thought it would be more. We’re about the same weight so I think those that weighed more lose more weight at first. You’ve lost 20 pounds in 5 weeks so averaging 4 pounds a week, that’s awesome! How long have you been stalled?
i know we’re told not to weight ourselves every day but of course, I’m stubborn so I do. I don’t lose weight every day. I lose a pound or two every 3-4 days. It’s not what I wanted, but it’s working. Just stay your course. Keep an eye on your Protein and Water intake and make sure you’re getting those daily.
can you switch up what you’re eating for soft foods? For me, a lot of things I try are making me sick so I’m sticking to eggs and Beans right now along with my Protein Shakes.

almost everyone has their first stall within the first 4-6 weeks after surgery. It's called the three week stall since it's USUALLY the third week, but not always. Just stick to your plan - the weight will start dropping again. Mine lasted for two weeks
