BIG DEAL!🥴



Recommended Posts

I’m a bit bummed! I weigh myself on Sundays, and last week I was 189, This week - get ready for it! 188!!! Anybody else have the 4th week slump? I guess I should be glad I didn’t GAIN! It’s not the ultimate worst thing, just thinking of how hard it is to go through all this and find I lost so little. I know one big thing has changed from before surgery. I used to do better going to the bathroom, but since being on these Vitamins with Iron, things have quickly changed. So I’m in the middle of changing my Multivitamin and adding magnesium which I took presurgery, so I’m hoping I will begin to lose better again. I’ve also changed to a lower Protein Shake, and that may be affecting it as well. I have begun to add flavorless Protein to some of my food, so I hope that will help as well.
Does anyone else have some words of wisdom they could share with me, and have many of you gone thru this same phenomena as well, please chime in! Misery loves company!😫🎉🤣 Still tryin! And thanks ahead of time!

I am only in week two but have read a lot about the stalls thats are ahead. There are so many things that can change just a couple of pounds that as long as your seeing a downward trend I wouldn't get discouraged. I mean lets get real here, a good poop and pee can be a pound or two??

I would just keep plugging away and maybe next Sunday you will get on here and tell us about your 7 pound drop!!!

Chin up partner it did not come on over night so it wont fall off over night, it is not a race.

it's the infamous three week stall. Almost all of us go through it. It's not always the third week (but it is for most of us) - but at some point within the first 4-6 weeks after surgery, almost all of us go through our first major stall. Mine was weeks 2 & 3. Didn't lose a lb. Then during week 4, the stall finally broke and I lost like 6-8 lbs within a couple of days. Just continue to follow your program and stay off the scale for a few days if you need to - and know that it WILL break! And also know that you'll likely hit these several times during your journey. It's all part of the game...

Week 3 or Week 4 ALWAYS and I mean ALWAYS makes people stall. It's not you, it's just normal. Stay off the scale and stay the course of your program. It'll reboot again in a couple of weeks.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, and you’re right. I just had to vent I guess. It was discouraging, but not defeating. This will be a long journey. If I can live on 4-6 oz. food at a meal for the rest of my life, I’ll be happy with that! Tonight I ate a taco., with a small soft shell. One taco! And I was full and happy!
that’s all I want. If I can lose with those small meals, I’ll have it made.

This makes me feel better. I'm in week 2 and haven't lost anything in 5 days.
