How long did your stalls last?



Recommended Posts

I really didn’t have a stall at 3 or 4 weeks, but I am having one here at between 7 and 8 weeks...is that a normal time for stall, lol? My weight has been within a 2-4 oz of the same for about a week. When these stalls happen at this stage do I need to change up my workout routine or anything, based on your experiences, or is this just a lull and one should just stay in their lane not changing anything. The trainer told me down the way we will add in more variety to my workouts to keep them varied, but she didn’t make it sound like this early on that would be a factor, nor had the dietician made mention of counting calories or adding at this point due to exercise. Just looking to hear personal experiences since this a new part of the journey for me. Thanks all:)

Stalls typically last 1-3 weeks, but they can be longer. It varies from one person to the next, so there's no telling how long it will be for you.

There's a lot of superstition around how to break a stall, but really, the only thing you can do is be patient. It's just your body catching up with all of the changes. Keep following the program and your weight loss will resume.

Have you lost 56 pounds since your surgery, or was some of that before surgery? If that was all since surgery, 56 pounds in less than 2 months is fantastic! But on the flip side, losing so much so fast means that your body has a lot of catching up to do.

No, it’s not been from all after. I lost 8 from August to October, 20 October 24th-November 9th on the pre-op diet, and 28 since surgery. So I’m getting there little by little:)

They last approximately on average two weeks. Sometimes you can break a longer one by mixing it up with higher calories/lower calories/fasting to shock your body but at this stage you should just wait yours out. They're inevitable.
