    Totally common! Get rid of your scale for a while. Don't be discouraged, be excited that you are on you way to an amazing new life.

    One day at a time, just work the program and it will come off. We forget that it took a long time to gain the weight and a longer time to decide to do something (surgery) about it; but we want to be thin and at goal overnight. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way! Hang in there and use the tool, it will happen!

    Continued success!!

    I am 4 weeks post op today and my scale has not moved even a little bit for 3 days now. I had read here about the "3 week stall" so was expecting it. It think it is that our bodies think we are experiencing a famine and going into slow metabolism mode. The different posters all say it is temporary but some say it lasted a week and other say multiple weeks. I like seeing the scales going down, down, down.

    What everyone else said! And it does feel like a toe stub! I am very "goal" oriented and have to really work to believe that the number isn't everything; the health is everything!

    HW: 240 Consult: 205 lbs SW: 199 lbs

    5.5 MO = 130 lbs (-69 lbs) GOAL!!!!
    6 MO = 128 lbs (-71 lbs)
    7.5 M = 124 lbs (-75 lbs)
    9.0 MO = 121 lbs (84 lbs)
    10 MO =
    11 MO =
    1 YR =

    When I hit my stall the scale stopped moving but the inches came off... kinda like my body was catching up to the pounds lost.

    Welcome to your first stall. It may not even be your last. Completely normal part of the process...although it feels like the end of the world...it's not. Just keep following the rules and trust the process.

    I just had the sleeve on 1/29, and I hit the three-week stall last week. This week the scale moved again. Whew! I'm still not as far along as I thought or hoped I'd be, but I'm also at a weight I haven't been at since 2012 -- so I'm telling myself that this is good! Best to you.
