How much more do you need to lose? Use the OH Post-Op planner to see what your loss should be at this point. Make sure you are still following your plan. The further out we get, the easier it is to eat more. Be careful!!

I have hit that same plateau many times over the years- I found changing up my diet and exercise routines gets my body ready to lose more weight
It's all you! 100% what you are eating. The surgery just disrupts old habits and helps you eat less at one time. But it's all you from day 1. Good luck.

I think answers like "It's all you! 100% what you are eating." might not be the whole story. Partly because you did not state what you are eating, so no one can say that you're overeating, and partly because it doesn't take into account that plateaus are real and happen to most of us at least at some point of our weight loss journey. I am 7 months post op, down 71 lbs since surgery and down 108 if I count pre-op diets. Yet I am just now finally coming out of a one month stall, and I lost a pound yesterday and a pound today. It certainly gets worrisome that we might be done at 6 months, but I am sure if we keep up the good fight with high protein, food journalling and exercise we will still be able to prevail. As they say, for many weight loss graphs can look more like stairs than waterfalls (same weight, same weight, lose ... rather than lose, lose, lose)
