Just stick to your plan and stay off the scale if it bother's you. If you follow your program you will lose weight.

We lose weight in a stair step fashion. You will lose a few pounds, then stay the same weight for a while, then lose a few more pounds, etc. A true stall will last for a month or more. Going a week or two without losing is completely normal. Your body has to adjust along the way.

No magic words...just stick to your plan.

All due respect to Rocky, but RNY is a different kettle of fish.

First, just stick to your plan and stay off the scale if it bother's you. If you follow your program you will lose weight.

Next, we lose weight in a stair step fashion. You will lose a few pounds, then stay the same weight for a while, then lose a few more pounds, etc. A true stall will last for a month or more. Going a week or two without losing is completely normal. Your body has to adjust along the way.

So, no magic words...just stick to your plan.

Rocky... err Tek

What are you talking about? So did I.

Perhaps you didn't notice, but I virtually copied what Rocky posted. Word for word.

Perhaps my humor was too subtle. Not everyone get's humor. I hope Rocky did, though.

I'll be honest I had very little stalls. None lasted more than a week. I would Push water (I do 100oz a day but the more the merrier up to a gallon). And if you are physically able. MOVE!!! Any exercise you can do will help. I wish you the best and if you stick with the program this should pass quickly.

I am just about 3 weeks post and I have not yet had a stall but my program informed us that these are normal and to not get all bent about them. They also said that even though the scale may not be moving your body could still be losing inches. Their suggestion to us as a patient who might experience this was to just keep doing what we are doing (as long as you are not seeing a weight gain). I am not sure if I will remember those words of advice when I hit a stall but I hope I do. The dietician also said that as long as we are tracking what goes in our mouths it should be simple to realize that the stall is just a normal process in the weight loss progression. I am sorry I don't have more substantial input for you but I wish you all the luck in the world man.

Move move move !

I have never exercised sincerely and not seen the results the very next day ... I don't mean on the scale because short term water plumping your muscles may actually make you a bit HEAVIER while your clothing sizes get ever smaller ...

but just in terms of waking up looking and feeling a lot better.

Congratulations Charlie on joining the losers bench ! hug
