I have hit a Plateau...



Recommended Posts

UGH I am in a stall, too! I am so bummed because I finally got back into the 160s, for the first time since 2016...then nothing lost in two weeks. But I am trying to stay optimistic and sticking to the program.
What's funny is I decided to search for "stall" here on these board, thinking I would pull up a few dozen threads. No, there were 17,501 results. That made me feel a little better!
So it's common then... ? Glad to hear that

My first stall happened at 2 weeks post op. It lasted for 2.5 weeks. Finally, about 4 days ago, the scale started to move again. But, my ring started falling off and I was starting to see the weight loss in my face and feel it in my clothes. So, even though the scale wasn't moving, I was losing inches.
Stay the course. Be patient. If you're making yourself crazy, stay off the scale.
Will do Thank you

Oh, yeah, everyone experiences them. Just look at them as your body taking a break. It’s been going through a lot & just like when our lives get a bit too much & stressful, your body is just pulling the covers over its head & saying nope, can’t deal with anything else for a while. Don’t stress it out more by making changes to your diet & activity levels. Stick to your plan as others have advised & the scale will start to move again.
Great way to look at it Thanks

stalls happen!!! i am 27 days out and in a stall …. but i have to be burning fat at less than 1000 calories a day

all you can do is make healthy choices; stick with your program; make sure you are not eating too much or to little and trust your body is changing even if the scale isn’t … take some measurements and pics and compare for changes that the scale doesn’t show

I'm at a stall too. A pretty frustrating one. It started 2 weeks after surgery and has lasted 3 weeks! I'm walking, lifting small weights, staying below 1200 calories, eating well......and I want this stall to be over!

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
