Well... I have hypothyroidism so I've had so many stalls that I quite literally lost count. My scale actually pisses me off on a regular basis lol. I'm still losing, don't get me wrong. But when you frequently stall for two weeks at a time you want to throw the damn scale at the wall! 🙄 Everyone's body reacts to the surgery differently and some have more stalls then others. I just happen to be one of the cursed ones... 😢 Anyway, I hope your stall passes soon! They're so irritating aren't they?

Same same same, I like to measure myself on and off when I want to throw the scale out the window. That can be uplifting at times :) But the stalls surely suck !!!!

I'm nearly 3 months out and currently in my first stall which has been going on for over 2 weeks. I'm very fed up with gaining and losing the same 1/2 lb.........It's just frustrating because I'm getting in the Water and Protein and never go over 1000 calories per day which before surgery would have meant I lost consistently! I wonder if it's because I've been on very reduced calories for 5 months and my body's getting used to the lower intake.

How long ago did you get surgery?

I had surgery 12/20/19, and just was stalled for four months. I’ve been going crazy! Thankfully I tweaked my exercise and diet enough to get the scale moving again. Sometimes I also think that our bodies just need a moment to process the trauma and changes they’ve been through.

Stalls are still as annoying as anything, though.

My surgery was 22nd October 2020 but I was on a liver shrinking diet from mid August.

that's long for a stall - you may have thrown yourself into maintenance instead. So it's good you tweaked - that's what you need to do if you're not done losing yet!

I had several stalls along the way. They became more frequent and lasted longer after around the year mark. I kept thinking "well, this is it...", but then my weight loss would start up again.

I stall for a week, then lose for four or five days. Its fine as long as I keep trending down. I had a fantastic start, so no complaints here. I did expect it to be more like before surgery when I lost weight.

Stalls happen. You just have to breathe through them. Your body is just coming to terms with all the changes - diet, weight loss, changes in activity, etc. Don’t stress your body or yourself more with worrying over a number on the scale.

If the scale upsets you, put it away for a few days. When I was in a stall, I would look at the graph of my weight loss & enjoy the general trend downwards not my actual daily weight.

Sometimes even if the number on the scale isn’t changing, a tape measure may reveal a smaller number. Or you may realise your general fitness level has increased. Or a pair of pants are looser.... Look for the small wins. The scales will start to move downwards again.

I had my surgery Nov. 4....first few weeks were 4 lbs. a week. Then all the sudden it slowed to 1 lb. a week for several weeks. At first I was upset, then I realized, I’m sSTILL losing, just slower and maybe this was the way it was gonna work with me. I also had not been getting my Protein and Water in and was trying foods outside the plan. Then 2 weeks ago I stalled and stayed at the weight from the week before! So I went back to eating more of what I should be , and this week I lost 3 lbs!! Soooo, we’ll see what happens next week, but I’m so glad that worked. I’m a renegade I guess, but I can tow the line if I have to, I guess. I still don’t get all my protein in and I’m probably not getting all my water in either, but I have been trying harder.
