I stopped losing weight after 1 month



Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I need some advices.I haven't lost weight for over 4 weeks now. I had my surgery (SADI-S) on August 21st and I lost so far 20lbs. I stopped losing since September 14!

I drink more than 2l of Water everyday. I walk 2 hours every day. I really don't know what to do!

Has anyone had this experience?

Can you share some tips? Please

Stall are quite common anywhere from 3 to 6 weeks out, and again many times as you progress through the first year.

Assuming you are following the post op guidelines set by your surgeon or dietician you will be fine, weight loss will catch up again soon.

It's a good time to set some non scale goals to focus on.

If you are concerne though you may want to check in with your dietician.

Yes, stalls are normal. I went through a LONG one in the beginning.... and I am in one now again. You will start losing again. Just trust the process.

as long as you stick to your surgeon's food plan the stall WILL eventually break. They're frustrating, but they're part of the process...

Fluid build up after surgery. Be patient please.

After I had my sleeve I had a stall that lasted almost 6 weeks. It was frustrating. I readjusted my diet (wasn’t eating enough) and made sure I was getting enough sleep. The weight eventually started coming off again.

Just try and be patient. I know it’s hard. Maybe talk to your nutritionist and see if you’re getting enough Protein and calories for your post-op stage.

Thank you for your reply! Could you share your diet plan with me please?

Right now I’m eating 600-800 calories a day most days. Varying the calories seems to help move things along for me when I get “stuck” with a stall.

Breakfast is usually coffee with Protein Shake as Creamer most days. Usually paired with cottage cheese and diced veggies (kimchi for Probiotics and tomatoes usually, sometimes bell peppers). Sometimes I’ll have Protein oatmeal or pack of instant grits with turkey sausage in it.

lunch is usually Soup with unflavored Protein Powder mixed in and a wasa cracker, lunch meat a cheese stick and veggies, or leftovers from the night before.

dinner is usually either shrimp or a plant based burger with veggies. Once a week or so I might make a pizza out of extreme wellness tortilla or have a curry or something.

Snacks are usually seaweed snacks, pretzels, or yogurt or a 90 calorie Protein Bar. Sometimes I’ll have apple slices with Peanut Butter or maybe animal crackers or almonds.

Thank all for your responses. But I am worried, it's been 1 month now since no weight loss at all!

it could be just a really long stall, but make sure you're following your clinic's food plan to a T....

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
