One month after vsg from 215 to 194 the scale has stopped moving



Recommended Posts

You started at a lower weight than most. And stalls happen. They are very irritating and disheartening, but totally normal. Stalls can last anywhere from 1 week to even a month, though generally they don't last longer than three weeks, but my longest one was 23 days. Just stick with your diet and it'll eventually break on it's own. Try not to get discouraged. I know it's incredibly difficult not to and you're probably constantly asking yourself what you did wrong. But stalls are normal. They happen far more frequently to me then I'm comfortable with, but I try not to get discouraged myself because my doctor told me stress can slow your weight loss. It'll pass.

Stalls happen all of the time, just stick with your program, drink your Water and the pounds will come off. I think your body needs to hold and get used to the new weight then you have another drop. I haven't noticed if walking helps or not. I just focus on the Protein and water. I'm just now getting to 600 calories, this is a year out. Good luck on your journey!

It is definitely a stall. I freaked out when I had mine - it was over 3 weeks long. Just be patient - I know it can be so frustrating, but the scale will start moving again.

You seem to be on the same track as me. I was 215 on day of surgery and now 3 months out and I weigh 184.5. So I have basically lost 10 pounds a month. Slow but hopefully it will stay off this way. Don’t get discouraged, it will happen for both of us!

yep - stalls will happen throughout your journey, and the vast majority of us experience our first major one within the first month post-surgery. Just stick to your program, stay off the scale if you have to, and know that it WILL break!
