It's a common term, many experience a brief pause in weight loss in the i ital weeks. It's said that it's the body's time taken to adjust to all it's been through. Not everyone experiences it.
My pet peeve is the term stall. A few days of not losing is not a stall. IMO, a true stall is 3 or more weeks at the same weight.

I lose weight in chunks and then go 3-4 weeks where I actually gain a couple , stabilize and then lose again. This is very frustrating because you start to believe you will never lose more despite doing everything right.
