So I had my surgery in the begining of July 2020. Lost some at first but since end of September I stalled until today Nov 27th. Just list 5 lbs.

What I do not understand is I have been doing the same thing Protein and Water keeping calories low but once I have a ton of carbs grazing 2 days in a row of carbs I finally lose 5 pounds.

I just do not understand why doing the opposite of what I have been doing is causing weight loss.

It happens to me too. I need a few carbs in my life to stay regular and lose weight. It seems like I stall forever and then when I eat something "bad" I end up losing weight. It's the weirdest damn thing. My husband calls me Opposite Girl. I guess the body needs a little shaking up now and then.

Exactly. I have to keep carbs low most of the time to lose weight but a refeed will break a stall when my body has gotten too comfortable at a plateau. One of life's nicer little paradoxes. 😁

Get used to it. When it comes to the topic of diet, food, calories and especially carbohydrates it can get quite controversial. Low-carb or Keto diets are very en vogue these days, just as low-fat diets were a few years ago.

Go with what you feels most comfortable to you and don't be afraid to make adjustments as time goes by and weight goes down. Your nutritional needs will change over time.

And go with what feels most comfortable to you, not to your best friend, your surgeon, your dietician, a random person online, your mother or Uncle Bob's best buddy.

Talk is cheap. That includes dietary advice.

In order to lose consistent weight you have to shock your system every once in a while. Our bodies get use to the same foods and same routine and that is why u hit a snag. Switch it up a bit, take something away from your diet for two weeks and then see ur results. I was a huge pop/soda drinker. For two weeks I stopped drinking the pop/soda and I lost 15 pounds. I ate what I wanted but all I did was drink Water and nothing else. I lose that 15 pounds without doing anything drastic. Hope this helps.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
