Normal as can be - I have said this a hundred times on this site - it is a journey and it will pay off ............... DO not focus on the scale or you will be in a rubber room with a jacket the buckles from the back.

The head games are tough and just focus on a new lifestyle of eating healthy and managing your addiction to food. Focus on your Vitamins and minerals. The rest will come and the weight will fall off

We all have been there it is not easy at the start but once you get the hang of it -------GAME ON

i started out like you weighing myself and driving myself nuts. Then i weighed in once a month and turned my focus to my new healthy lifestyle. Trust me it works

Although there is no such thing as "normal" that applies to everyone equally, stalls are definitely a part of the process. You can expect this to happen from time to time throughout your weight loss journey. As long as you are following the program set by your surgeon and nutritionist, you will succeed. Focus on that on not on the scale.

you're going through the three-week stall a little early. Almost everyone goes through that early stall. If you do a search for it on this site, you'll fine 17,501 posts on it (and no, I am NOT kidding - there literally are 17,501 posts on it). Just stick to your plan and your weight loss will start up again - I promise! My stall lasted for two weeks (weeks 2 and 3 post-surgery), and my weight loss started up again during week 4. I dropped like 6-8 lbs within a couple of days that week. So just hang tight and stay off the scale if you have to...

Thank you all so much... I think I just panicked, because I lost 17lbs in the first 7 days and then lost and gained the same pound for the last 6 now lol... Still on full liquids and getting my Water, Protein and exercise in so I just didn’t understand. Thank you for your support and information. Have a wonderful day 😌🙏

Yes 😌🙏 And thank you. I was told it was mostly Water and gas weight from surgery so I didn’t see it as a real victory. But you are absolutely right. 17lbs is 17lbs no matter what it is that is lost. Thank you for that
