3 Week Stall Turning into 5 Week Stall



Recommended Posts

Hello All,
I had my RNY on 8/4 and lost almost 25 lbs in two weeks. At week 3 my weight loss stalled and I keep gaining and losing the same 5 lbs. from 175-180. I’m only 5ft 4 so this is way too soon for this! I eat about 600 calories a day, hitting the 50-60grams in Protein and usually 50 carbs or so. I’m not cleared for exercise but in all honestly I’ve been lazy and tired so no exercise. Where could I be going wrong?!

Search here but my trick was to mix up the Calories - One Day 900 next day 400 and throw in some Intermittent fasting

If you are following your surgeon's eating guidelines, I wouldn't worry. Your body is probably still catching up with the initial weight loss, which was a lot. For comparison, I've only lost 27 pounds in almost two months since my surgery.

Hi there. I’m new to Bariatric Pal. Needing a community.

I had gastric bypass 2006 top weight 301 current weight 165. My lowest was 138 intentional gained 10 lbs (with doctor’s guidance) bc I was getting very cold. However in 2018 I started playing around with carbs and now paying for it. What I remember was doing no carbs in the beginning. I think maybe the first year. The focus was Protein. My belief and still is that the gastric bypass team doctor, surgeon, dietician are my guide. I ask lots of questions and keep food journals. The foods that got me to 301 I had to let go. And they are the foods that caused me the weight gain. Hope this helps some.

Hey congrats on those lbs. i read the closer you get to a lower weight the weight loss slows. Maybe make an appointment with your dietician and go over a weeks worth of food log. They have seen it all and usually have good tips
