So I'm 4 weeks out from surgery as of yesterday. I lost about 13 lbs my first two weeks and now, I'm only down ~7 more lbs.

At my 2 week follow up, my docs wanted me to double that, by the time of my 6 week follow up (from 304 to 278). I've been hovering around 298-297 since my 2 week follow up and I can't understand why. I honestly don't eat (never hungry/get full quickly) and walk at least 30 mins a day w/my doggo. I've built my stamina up from being able to walk only 10-15 a day. My clothes fit better, and I'm losing inches, but the lbs aren't going away.

Would anybody have an idea why this might be happening? I stick to my diet, and don't eat anything I shouldn't and try to get my Water intake in. I admit, I struggle with my Protein intake because I just cannot stand Protein Shakes and I can only manage to eat 1x a day. If anyone has any advice/information, I'd love to hear it. I'm slowly adapting to this new lifestyle and I don't have a lot of people to talk to about this.

Thanks!

There are a million posts on this topic here. Everybody is different and your body is fighting back. I found mix a little 12 hour fast in it and mix up your calorie count one day do your 1200 next day do 900 - The key is you have to trick your body into burning again. Right now it says no way Conserve fat Conserve

But great job and the lifestyle change will come and become way easier

I just did a search on this site for you. There are literally 17,501 posts on this early stall. Pretty much everyone has it. I really think bariatric clinics ought to warn people about this because it happens to almost everyone, and people really freak out about it. Just stick to your plan and your weight loss will start up again. Stay off the scale if you have to. It usually lasts 1-2 weeks. Here are all the posts on it. Really - over 17,000 of them.

Follow your diet and you'll resume your excellent weight loss soon. It is science. Your calorie deficit will result in weight loss. Just be sure to get all your Protein so your body won't consume muscle.

Here are some things I ate during that stage: eggs, melted low fat cheese or string cheese, mashed potatoes, bananas, Peanut Butter, applesauce, lean ground meats like turkey, and cooked carrots. Homemade slow cooker turkey chili was a daily staple for a while.
