    3 week stall

    I too had a stall in week three. I was so dissapointed. I thought the surgery hadn't worked. I can't stay away from the scale either. I now weigh myself once a week. Well I cheat and get on when I feel skinny in the morning. Lol. And the weight loss is slower than I expected, but it is consistently coming off now. But I am sure my next stall will be just as frustrating.
  3. I told people I was having hernia surgery. Only my family and one friend know. I don't want people examining what I eat and feeling like they can comment on my weight.
  4. I am two months out and I have lost 31lbs since surgery (50 since pre-op liquid diet). I stalled my second week too, but it has been steady 2-4 lbs a week since. I thought that I would lose a lot faster too, but I guess that is not in the cards for me. I get 60-80 protein a day, and 400-500 calories. I was super worried that I would be the one person that the surgery doesn't work for, but after reading tons of blogs and forum threads I came to the conclusion that you can't compare yourself to other peoples journey. I found lots of people that had slow weight loss and eventually lost most/all of their excess weight. So no worries, it will work for you. I find that the more I drink the more I lose, so I would concentrate on getting your water! Good luck and remember this is just the beginning of a journey that is going to last for the rest of your life, and we are just on the first steps!
  5. The before pic is from before my preop diet, I have lost 50lbs since then. I was feeling pretty down about the slow weight loss (I had a stall 2 weeks after surgery!). But looking at the difference now makes me feel better. 50lbs in two and a half months is nothing to sneeze at! And unlike the crazy thoughts going through my head a month ago, I don't think that the surgery was a failure anymore. Lol
