Stall, Stall, Stalling.

I knew that a stall hits most people in and around month five after weight loss surgery.  And it seems I am no exception to the rule.

For just over two weeks I have been stuck at my 69lbs loss.  Normally each month I have a 7-10 day stall where I feel bloated and miserable (typical woman, eh?).  But then right after that mini stall the weight keeps coming off.  Except this month.  Nothing.  No movement.  I am still eating well (minus the apple pie day where I chose to have a small slice of apple pie for pretty much all of my meals that day), still going to the gym three times a week, and still doing squash 1-2 times a week. 


I know, I know.  The scale doesn't tell the entire tale.  Inches... inches.  Yes they are still coming off.  But dammit I want to hit 70lbs!

I hear you loud and clear sister!! But remember... now that you are going to the gym and gaining "muscle" remember that muscle weights more than fat. If you are still losing the inches great... throw your scale OUT!! :0)

I agree, don't let the scale tell you how you FEEL. You're doing great and you've inspired me to loose my own excess weight. I'd like to say it was my pregnancies but really, it's the way I've always been. Down 3 pounds and starting to enjoy this treadmill of mine.

Let's have a good ol fashioned scale burning!

You may be at a stall because you are getting muscular and muscle weighs more than fat. Glad to hear you are doing well and are enjoying the gym. I miss the gym. It was a great stress reliever and a good time to reflect on the day.

If the scale's not helping, throw it out!
