I’ve only lost between 39-41 in total including pre op. HW 256, SW 244, CW 215-217. I had a stall at 6 weeks and also gained 2 pds. I went from 215 to 217. Since then I have been losing and gaining the same 2 pounds. I do get my Protein in but struggle with Water intake. I average about 50 oz a day. My dr put my calories at 800-1000 a day, protein at above 80. Nut told me not to be concerned about fat or carbs at this point. I just started to work out so no muscle gain at this point. I am very frustrated. Anyone have a similar issue or any advice to give ?????

Are you listening to yourself? "I've only lost between 39-41 pounds in 10 weeks." That's FANTASTIC!!!! Have you ever lost that much before in that short amount of time? Doubt it. The process is working. Stalls happen. Exercises affect muscle mass. You've got this. Don't worry . . it's all good. Keep up the good work!!!

Thank you. I agree it’s a lot. I am just frustrated that it’s going on 4 weeks without losing.

you're losing a lot faster than I ever did.

and as far as the four weeks, you're most likely in a stall. They usually last 1-3 weeks, but a month is not unheard of.

whoa! Im at 12 weeks just behind you and im down 61lbs! Thats sounds alot compared to you. It concerns me this is too quick! My dietician hasnt said anything negative about it. But i started at 317lbs. im guessing thats why its faster? Cause im more heavy? I still cant make my 64oz of water

We all lose at our own rate. Some are slow losers, others fast. Both are fine. Your weight loss seems great so far @rgwtwins. About 40lbs over 10 weeks is about 4 lbs a week. That’s pretty damn good. Celebrate those pounds you’ve lost.

Yes, stalls can be damn frustrating but they do happen & unfortunately can occur a few times. Usually a stall will break in its own time without you doing anything different. If you’re worried, meet with your dietician just to ensure you are not missing something. Sometimes a small tweak will kick start your loss again especially if it’s persisting for more than 4 weeks.

Yes @Cheryl A, the higher your starting weight the faster you tend to lose at first but it will slow. If your medical team is happy with your rate of loss, enjoy your weight loss too. It’s probably a bit of a shock but you’re doing well.

Another week and still stalled. It’s sooooo frustrating. Last time the scale moved was January 14th. It is hard to not feel discouraged.

Hi! Just checking in... have you lost any more weight since this vicious stall hit you?

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
