    Everyone loses at a different pace. Are you getting 64 ounces of fluids a day? How much protein are you getting everyday? Are you getting the sleep your body needs? I lost 13 lbs the 1st week and nothing for the next 2 weeks. There are lots of things that can make you have a stall and then sometimes it just happens. The thing is, it's going to happen. Don't get discouraged. Just buckle up and enjoy the ride.

    This ^^^ says it all. It WILL happen, it just happens at different paces for everyone. Keep following to basics - protein first at meals, space out fluids from food, 64oz fluids day, 60 or more grams protein/day, walk/exercise every day and if weighing yourself is too discouraging, switch to checking only 1x week for now.

    Stalls and fluctuations are normal.

    When was the last time you lost 20 lbs in less than a month???

    This is a marathon, not a sprint.

    Calm down grasshopper!
    You were sleeved less than a month ago. The weight is going to come off. Make sure you are following the guidelines of your bariatric team and you will be fine!

    You are doing great. Just follow the rules they gave you when you were sleeved and you will be fine. Talk to us 6 months from now!!

    I have 2 pieces of advice.

    1. Have a positive attitude! It helps so much. Get excited about the weight you have lost, the energy you are gaining, and every little NSV. (Non scale victory) Have fun, the first year is beyond amazing.

    2. Hide your scale and weigh only once a week while you are losing. Keep a journal with your weight say every Monday. Also take your measurements every few months. That way the little weight fluctuations or stalls don't drive you crazy. I look back at my journal and see only 2 weeks I stayed the same and 2 weeks I gained.

    You can do it, have fun!
