12 days post op and stopped losing weight



Recommended Posts

I am 12 days post op and for the past 2 days, I haven't lost any weight. I am following the diet. 3 oz 3 times a day. I have been waking about 2 miles everyday. Also, I feel hungry more in the evening. Is this normal?

yes. Happens to almost all of us. It's called the three week stall, even though it's not always the third week. Mine was weeks 2 & 3. During week 4, I dropped like 6-8 lbs within a couple of days.

if you want to see how common it is, do a search on the "three week stall" on this site. There are 15,701 posts on it, the last time I checked (and no, I am NOT kidding).

just stick with your plan and stay off the scale for a few days if you have to. And know that it WILL end and you'll be on your way again

edited to add that I thought I'd do the search for you. Here you go:

You won't lose weight every single day. And weight loss stalls happen. The three week stall is very common. I've had several stalls over my journey and the longest one lasted 23 days (that was in month 3), in fact I just got over a two week stall yesterday as I finally lost another pound. Also, since you're exercising you may put on muscle which weighs more than fat so it may not look like you're losing weight when you weigh yourself, but if you take measurements you'll be able to tell the difference with that. Try not to stress yourself out during stalls because the stress can prolong them (almost impossible to do, I know).

Welcome to the forums.

The scale will lie to you. While it can be fun to see the daily weight loss. When the scale gets stuck some folks start second guessing their every action. Don't let the scale make you happy or sad.

They key thing is you are working your plan. Keep doing that.

Stay off the scale, if you can manage it. Are you getting healthier? Happier? More active? These are my measurements.

Good luck,

Tek

This is how I keep weight in check years out from VSG... 2 weeks is how long it takes the results to show up. I still track food and weight. If I get to the high end of my 3lb. range I will lower my calories to 1400ish for 2 weeks. It works every single time.
