So this happens to me sometimes and is happening to me. Last week I lost 6lbs but this week, I’ve hit a stubborn stall. I am eating right as my program says and exercising, getting my protein/water. But I’m still stuck in a stall. It’s infuriating. Does this happen to anyone else? You lose, lose, and then stall?

that "stair step" pattern of weight loss is pretty common, actually. If it's driving you nuts, maybe just weigh yourself once or twice a week instead of daily. As long as you stick to your plan and your general trend is downward, you're good -

That makes sense! I will stop weighing until this coming Monday. Glad it’s not just me. I can see the difference but it’s just not reflected on the scale.

I've been a scale wh*re since 2009.... I weigh myself every day. I logged for years.... i wrote every oz down. felt as long as i wasn't going up, i was good. It keep me on track... but some people can't and only weigh once a week, month or at dr. appt.

You will have times where you will lose, then stay steady and then BAM lose again.... But the key is to not get discouraged and keep motivated.

I used dry erase markers and wrote notes and messages to myself on the bathroom mirror to remind me I'm worth it alllllll.

This is what happens to mostly everyone after surgery. I used to get so aggravated. I would lose, then be in a stall for sometimes 3-4 weeks at a time. If you keep doing what your supposed to, you will see it come off again. Just be patient. I know it sucks. I used to get so upset.

It’s the weight loss cycle. Lose then stall. Lose then stall. Some people will say to increase your calories or increase your activity to break it. I just stuck to my plan & the stall broke. This won’t be your only stall. Some last a week others may last three weeks. They’re just your body taking a breath to catch up on all the changes. You will start to lose again.

Yep... I haven't even had surgery yet, but in the 4 months I've been jumping through insurance hoops I've lost 32.6 lbs. And some days I'm higher than the day before, some days it's the same as the day before, but the overall trend is down. Just follow the rules and you'll win the game!

Thanks for all the feedback. The stall broke today (ish) as I went down 7 ounces. Ha ha. Hoping tomorrow is better. And Ada, I’ve lost 55lbs after surgery and TODAY is my 5 months. So yes, you’re doing great.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
