How long does weight stall last. Or should I go back to the puree stage. I on l y need 10 more pounds for my goal weight. Surgery was 3 21 2021. 250lbs today and for last week and a half. Its 180 and 184. I go to gym 2 to 3 days a week. Cardio and light workout. Is this a stall or did I reach my limit..

It's not uncommon for a stall to last 1-2 weeks. No reason to go back to purees. That doesn't make you lose weight faster. It just aids the healing tummy by giving it softer, easier to digest food that doesn't hurt the healing staple line etc. Just make sure you're eating what you're supposed to be eating according to your surgery center's instructions. Usually high Protein, low carb, veggies, and stopping when you're satisfied, not full. No grazing.

just stick to your plan and stay off the scale if you need to. The weight loss should start up again..

My stall lasted almost three weeks but then I dropped a couple pounds right away. There is no need to change anything the stall will break.

My last stall also lasted almost 3 weeks & I was only about a kilo from goal. Super frustrating. I just stuck to my plan & that last kilo went.

It is possible you could have reached your low point but don’t give up. Just wait it out for a few weeks & see what happens. If you want to lose more you either need to reduce your calories intake &/or increase your activity.

Congrats on your weight loss.

five weeks is getting pretty long for a stall. You may have thrown yourself into maintenance (where your calorie intake and whatever calories you're burning up are at equilibrium). Are you still tracking your food intake? You may need to decrease your calories a bit - or increase your activity - to get things moving again.

yeah i track my food every day, i’m having around 900-1000 calories a day is that too much ? The only activity i do is walking and stretches at home.

Ugh yeah it sucks to be in a stall but you just had your surgery 3 months ago? I wouldn’t think you’re done losing.
Maybe if you hit week 3 with no movement, call your nutritionist?

I just had a 2 week stall and then dropped 12 in 8 days. My body was clearly holding onto it and finally just let it go. We can only control our behavior, not the outcome on the scale.

that's more than I was eating at that point, but you should still be losing weight on that. Maybe give it another week or two - but yea - stalls normally don't last that long.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      2. Iluvbats

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).

    • Crystalmoon

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
