What am I do wrong? Did I make a mistake



Recommended Posts

Hi friends,

A bit upset and sad. I’m at day 20 since my VSG and have only lost two lbs since April 3rd. I’m eating the 800-1000 calories my doctor asked of me but I’m not losing any weight. I feel like I’m doing something wrong or made a mistake. I lost 20lbs in the first 9 days but now I’m at a standstill. I’ve heard of the 2nd or 3rd week stall but 10 days sounds a bit much. I’m starting to wonder if I made a mistake. It’s really getting to me. I hear of all these people getting full after three bites of food and I’m not one of them. I’m constantly hungry and snacking on the meals I’m allowed to have

Please help I’m really going through it right now.

Mark

Youre doing amazing! This stall sucks and mine lasted just as long. Keep sticking to the plan. Itll drop. Youve done nothing wrong. The head games are rough, but if youre sticking to your plan, then youre fine. Just keep going.

Don't worry... it'll pass. I'm going through it myself it has bn a wk & a half since my scale moved. Just keep eating what is suppose to b eating &it'll move again. Stay off the scale for a few day. I keep getting in the scale & saw nothing moved. So I stayed off for 5 days & it finally moved. Not as much as my Dr would hv liked but I'm happy w my results. 😆. You'll b fine! Keep up the good work!!

Dude! You lost 20 lbs in 9 days?? That is insane! I had my call this week with my NUT and at 7 weeks I was averaging 3.7 lbs lost a week which she said was amazing. I've had 3 stalls in 7 weeks lasting from 5 days to a week or more. Really all you can do is just keep doing what your medical team tells you and don't deviate from it. In the long run if you average 3 lbs a week then you will be at goal this year. Hang in there...This is a marathon not a sprint.

I AGREE!! it's a MARATHON. and if you've read anything I wrote my crazy Dr thinks it's a sprint. I just think as long as I'm LOSING I'm 👍. Keep up the good work

they usually last 1-3 weeks - but occasionally longer, so you're still in the normal range for a stall.

Day 20, sounds like the infamous three week stall I recently learned about but it happens to so many people here. I had it as well. It lets up. Just be patient. Congrats on the 20 pounds.

As everybody else has said, the “3 week stall” is a real thing. I will be 4 weeks post op tomorrow and from about the 12 day mark to the 22 day mark, I only lost 2 lbs. I started to freak a little because I’m barely eating and have no hunger or desire to eat. My nutritionist said it was normal and I confirmed that here on the message boards. My best advice is like everybody else said, stick to the script and only weigh once a week. I’m down 60 lbs in 6 weeks (2 weeks pre op diet until now). So while I had that little “stall”, I’m averaging 1lb a day. So I look at the big picture. I wish I had your hunger!
