I consider it a stall if I haven't lost weight in a week. I've had multiple stalls with the longest one lasting three weeks. You'll get passed this! It's completely normal!

Yep, if you don’t lose any weight in a week it’s likely a stall. (Think of them as your body playing catch-up with the changes you’re making.) Like NovaLuna, my longest stall persisted 3 weeks too & I experienced about 3 during my journey. Some people advocate shaking your body up by increasing or decreasing your exercise or food intake. I just continued with my routine & gave my body the time it needed & I eventually started losing again.

Good luck.

Yep - I weighed daily, but only officially recorded it weekly, so a week without loss (or a bit of gain) I chalked up to being a "stall". I only had one week without loss until I started ramping up my calories to slow down the loss leading into goal (and my "three/third week stall was maybe a day - it's a big YMMV thing.) There are too many Water weight effects to worry about daily fluctuations.

I went by this criteria as well, though I’d also add inch loss. So NO weight loss AND no inch loss for more than 7 days = STALL.

Based on this, I didn’t have any stalls during weight loss phase. But everyone’s mileage will vary.

P.S. I weighed every day (and still do) and took my measurements once a week.
