The day of my 3 week post surgery date I hit a stall that’s latest a week so far. Do you promise it will break? I am still haunted by my dieting days when I’d stall and then throw in the towel. I know it’s different now - I just wish this didn’t happen so quickly in the process.

yep - it's the infamous three-week stall, right on time! It'll last 1-3 weeks. Just stick to your program, stay off the scale if you have to, and rest assured that it will break. This is likely to be your first of several..

I've gotten to the point (Gastric Sleeve, just over 6 months out) that the stalls happen more often than consistent loss. :( But even still, it does break and then I lose for a few days and then I stall again. But I stay focused on the fact that this is a marathon, not a sprint and I'm still losing!!

I'm on my first stall at the 2 week mark!18 lbs in the first 2 weeks and then nothing for a whole week... still nothing... I feel like going back to liquids... but my doctor cleared me for pureed/soft foods and have actually been tolerating it well. Im just sad i stopped losing as soon as I started eating.

Happens to almost everyone, and you'll hit several of these on your journey. No need to go back to liquids. Just keep following your program and stay off the scale if you need to - and remember that it WILL break. it always does.... (it's probably just coincidence that the dreaded "three-week stall" happens around the same time that you start eating real food)

I am on day 15 of my week 3 stall. It's so disheartening. We just have to push through and follow the plan.
