Stalling and food portion



Recommended Posts

Hi All, I'm 10 weeks post op, I had surgery 1/31/2021 and I've hit a stall and gained 1 pound....how 😫??I'm not eating so much more or unhealthy it's messing with me, I'm still staying between 2-3 oz of food because that's all I can eat, I've got to the point that I can drink Water a lot faster and I was wondering if that's normal because I read and hear from ppl that they still struggle. I struggled at the beginning and a bit on my 7th week again but now I can take big sips....is that bad? Also how many ounces should I really be eating now?

I never really had trouble with fluids, even at the beginning.

also, stalls are very normal. I had several along the way. Just stick to your program and stay off the scale for awhile if you need to. It WILL break...

Yes definitely staying off, I was only stepping in the scale every Sunday but I'm having my husband hide it for a while.

Thank you!

People vary a lot with these things. I could drink Water more than others at my stage. Perhaps because I've always been a big water drinker. Even so, I remember being annoyed in months 2-3 when I'd go out and exercise in the sun and be really, really thirsty, but could only drink 1/4-1/2 cup of water. I think you're well within the range of normal.

I had a stall that started after 2 months and lasted 3.5 weeks. It sucks, but it's totally normal.
