I went from 249 to 163, which was lowest probably for a day. I am 181.2 today, Sept 21. I can't get out of the 180's. I have my 2-yr checkup and I feel so embarrassed. I fear that breast reduction is the only thing that will get me to goal. I went from 48 to 40; I should be feeling good about that. BUT I'm a 40-I. I want reduced to a D. How can I get out of the 180's? My Dr wanted me at 150 at my 2-yr, and I failed.

You went from 249 to 180's...you did not FAIL. Don't dismiss what you have achieved because of a setback. Maybe you didn't reach your doctor's expectations, but this is a process that may have many bumps in the road. Maybe your doctor or nutritionist can give you some ideas to help restart losing weight.

If you are not already, maybe start tracking food, Protein & Water again to see if there are slight changes you can make there. There are also "pouch" reset plans that might help get the scale moving again.

If you are carrying a lot of weight in your chest, maybe that isn't factored into your doctor's expected weight loss.

I hope your 2 year appointment goes well & you are able to get to where you feel happy & comfortable with your weight. Don't forget how far you've come! 🤩

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
