Weight loss stall 3 weeks after sleeve?



Recommended Posts

I had gastric sleeve surgery on September 20th and was losing weight pretty quick but it just stopped in the last few days! Is this normal? Is it going to pick up again? Has anyone else had this issue?

Right on time. Do a search for 3 week stall

yep - it's the infamous three week stall - right on time! Happens to probably 90% of us. If you do a search for it on this site, you will find over 17,000 posts on it (as of yesterday when I looked, 17, 501 to be exact. And no, I am NOT kidding..)

Others said it already but yes the three week stall is a thing. Just keep doing what you are doing. Stay off the scale for a while if that helps and trust the process. The loss will pick back up shortly.

Yep - MGB surgery on the 22nd, and stalled second week post surgery. It's frustrating, but normal. Do a google search on the medical reasons it happens and it'll make you feel ok about it. It did with me.

Just got to ride it out.

I will just add that the stall can last a few weeks, so don't panic!

I'm so glad I came across this post, I too had RNY surgery on 9-20-21 and the scale hasn't moved in DAYS. I feel a lot better now, because I'm following the plan to a T and it's discouraging the weight is not just falling off.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

        I have threw up clear mucus every time I ate something that didn’t sit well with my stomach. I’ve been trying to get too ahead of myself though I had surgery September 22 I noticed that when I eat smaller slower bites I don’t throw up as much
