Hang in there!

I'm trying. Who knew the worst part of the surgery was the stall??? Not the liquid diet, not the pain, not the recovery, not the learning how to eat. The STALL!!!!! lol

I don't really live anywhere that I can go walking outside (I live right in downtown, and if you know anything about downtown Denver right now, you know you can't go walking there) so I use my apartment complex's gym. I want to add inclines to the treadmill but my surgeon said no until I hit 6 weeks post op. I can't lift any weights (I only do 3 and 5 pound weights) until then, too. And no running or jogging until then. So I'm kinda stuck at just speed walking on the treadmill and riding the exercise bike. If that means I'm gonna be in this stall another 2 weeks, I might very well lose my mind lol But I'm happy you finally broke the stall!!! How much did you lose when you saw the stall broke?


272 to 270.4, I’ll take it!

PS I LOVE downtown Denver! But I agree, not walk friendly!

Especially now. Crime has gone up, it's become a tent city, there's trash everywhere, and panhandlers on every corner. So....apartment gym it is...

I'm now on day 12 of this stupid stall. I'm just so over it. This really is the pits.

Yeah, everyone defines a stall differently.

Personally I use at least “1 week of consecutive days of non-weight-nor-inches loss” as a definition.

It's day 12, and it feels like there's no end in sight. Who knew this would be the worst part of the surgery???

It won’t let me quote the video link but that was very helpful! I think my stall broke more because I changed a few things in my day to day but this is encouraging that it will break regardless!

Thank you!!! Just what I needed. I know in my brain that it'll pass, but MAN, when you're in it (especially for the first time) it's hard to remember that.

What a great video. Thank you for sharing it @acopas.

Watching it reminded me to ask if you take body measurements @SleeveDiva2022? Some people notice their physical measurements decrease while in a stall even though the scale doesn’t change.

No, I don't have any kind of tape measure, and I never did any "before" measurements.

Take lots of pictures from the same angle in the same outfit. You'll notice a difference regardless of the number.

I’d go ahead and get a measuring tape if I were you. Yes clothes fit different but with there being no standard sizing, I don’t trust that. Pictures are great too but sometimes I struggle to see the difference there as well.

I didnt either but started to record measurements around the 4 month mark and I have noticed reducing numbers on the tape measure but not so much on the scales so it has been good to see that. Tape measures are cheap I encourage you to get one.

Yeah I'm going to head out tomorrow and get one (it's Memorial Day here and I don't want to deal with crowds at Walmart and Target with people getting last minute stuff for parties and BBQs).

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
