Change up your calorie intake. Take a couple of days to add more calories. If your intake is too low your body enters starvation mode and it is hard to lose weight. You can also try intermittent fasting. I did 8:16 IF and that worked well for me. Also try looking up calorie confusion dieting. Make sure you meet or exceed your Protein and Water goals too.

I second the calorie suggestion. I just had my second mini-stall, and I realized I needed to do something new. I'm already eating 1000-1400 cals a day per my surgeon's program, so did some HIIT exercise to get my body shaken out of the funk.

@sdjohnson7 - so sorry for your long stall. Is your weight in your bio current? If so, I'd definitely discuss upping the calories with my dietitian in your bariatric program, or get some suggestions on what else to try. 750-900 cals at almost 300 lbs shouldn't have you stalling for that long, I think?

just stick to your plan and stay off your scale. Your weight loss WILL start up again. Trust me. No need to do anything with your calories. I would answer this differently if you were several months out and had stalled for more than a month, but with you being less than a month out, no. This early stall happens to everyone, and it typically lasts 1-3 weeks. Just stay the course and follow your surgeon's plan.

you're in a different position than the original poster since you're 10 months out. Six weeks is a bit long for a stall - you may be in maintenance. Are you still tracking all your food? I would think you'd still be losing at 750-900 calories. I guess it COULD be a really long stall = in which case, it might be worth it to switch things up like the others have said - but if you're not still weighing/measuring and tracking your food, I'd start with that..

she's only three weeks out - it's the infamous three-week stall. Pretty much everyone has that. Best thing to do is just stay the course - and stay off the scale 🙂

Oh, duh. I missed that one. Good catch!

Yeah, OP, just stick to the plan, whatever the plan may be. Like, really really follow it :)
