    Default Fourth week and have put on weight

    I haven't lost anything over the last two weeks and this week weighed in and have put on .5kg. What is going on?
    All I eat is as much protein as I can ( which is never enough ) and try to get in as much fluid as I can (which isn't enough either).
    I dont understand, what am I doing wrong? I have heard that your weight loss can come to a halt for a while (forgot the word for it) but how long does that last? Anyone know? I'm starting to get really depressed : {

    Search this site for the word "stall."
    So many weep about this the first month that I don't know why doctors aren't making this known.

    You don't need to count calories, but are you eating a lot of high caloric food to get the protein totals in?
    Are you drinking a lot of juice or other higher calorie beverages to get your daily liquid totals in?
    Try journaling.

    The body can resist this change and you may be retaining some fluids.

    Are your clothes feeling a little looser? Muscle is more dense than fat. The scale may not be moving much, but your clothes will fit looser (you are losing inches).

    Don't be discouraged, almost every one has a stall or two (or more). Keep up the great work.



    Inside some of us is a thin person struggling to get out, but they can usually be sedated with a few pieces of chocolate cake.

    I am 44 days sense surgery and I am at a stand still. I haven't lost anything in 2 weeks. Haven't gained. But not a loss. It is driving me nuts!

    Thanks so much everyone. I have had no extra calories. I have sugar free everything. I know I'm doing all the right things, but it is just so frustrating when you lose so much so fast and then you expect to keep going as fast. Makes me feel better knowing that its not just me. Thanks for all your input. I will take your advice, don't weigh in so much and be patient.
    Thank You!!!
