Hi guys!

I was sleeved on June 4th. I've lost 28lbs since surgery but stop losing around June 30th. I've been stuck ever since and I'm afraid maybe I am eating too much?

Typically, I will eat every 3 hours.

Morning: 1 scrambled egg with a sprinkle of cheese

Snack: 1 slice of turkey or ham rollup with 1 slice cheese

Lunch: 1/2 cup chili

Snack: 1 slice of turkey or ham rollup with 1 slice cheese

Dinner: 1/2 cup chili with cheese

Am I eating too much? I am completely open to any suggestions or critiques. I just want to make sure I'm doing this thing right. I want this surgery to work for me so bad and I'm getting nervous that my sleeve either isnt working or Im already sabotaging it. How can I possibly be stuck alredy for over 10 days if I just started this thing?

Search for "three week stall" on the forums. This happens to pretty much EVERYBODY! Be patient, keep doing what you're doing, and you will start losing weight again.

Are the calories within your diet plan? Some packages deceive us by saying low fat or healthy but the nutritional label is key. Keeping carbs to a minimum helps.

When the scale does not move, sometimes your waistline will. I've had 2 stalls thus far and was sleeved in May. Both times I continued to lose size even though the number on the scale stayed the same. Also, weighing yourself at the same time of day wearing the same thing helps with consistency. Hope this helps.

I experienced a 4 week stall about 6 weeks post op. It is real and it happens even when you're eating and drinking properly. I'm no expert but the only explanation I can come up with is that your body is in shock and holding on tight to any and all calories consumed.

Your menu looks fine so try not to be discouraged and just make sure you're portion size is in line with your diet.

Good Luck!

You lost 28 lbs in less then a month !! That is wonderful, with that being said you body is probably just adjusting to the loss and will start dropping again soon.

I don't see anything wrong with what you are eating.

I am having a somewhat similar experience. I lost 17 lbs on the two week liquid diet pre-op. I had my surgery on 6/19. Since then I've lost an additional 9lbs. A total of 26lbs. However, the scale hasn't moved in 11 days. I've talked to my doctor's office and two additional people who have had the surgery. All say this is completely normal. In their experience the weight loss was a littler slower at first due to the body adjusting to the procedure.

This is definitely a learning experience. I've realized my expectations are high and should be proud of what I've accomplished. I know the feeling of "Is it me? Am I doing something wrong?" But if your following the problem then you have nothing to worry about. Keep doing what you are doing, I'll keep doing what I'm doing, and I'm sure the weight will come off again for both of us.

Sleeved in April. I only weigh at appointments and occasionally at the gym, but otherwise I focus on protein, water etc. I've lost 67 pounds in 3 months so I'm pretty pleased ?

At the top of the page, go to Resouces and click the Post Op Planner. Put in your numbers for a preview of how much weight loss to expect each month,
