Report POST OP stalls ...we have all asked about this. Why are there such few articles on the physiology of this phenomenon? in knowledgehungry's Blog A blog by knowledgehungry in General Posted October 2, 2017 Back up to 161. Procedure 4 months ago. That is 7 lbs less than the before-procedural weight of 168 and 21 lbs less than pre-op starting weight. It appears that most weight was lost on the pre-op diet prep but that has been a sustainable loss after the procedure. I think I have hit my setpoint weight. I see no further weight loss trend. My desired goal was 150 and I thought 155 would be acceptable. I don't see my weight going in that direction as it is now straddling 160. My diet is stable and is less than half the calorie intake before surgery--estimate 1200 daily. The appetite is still suppressed and that is what is doing most of the heavy lift here. I don't have painful hunger pangs and the stomach is happy with low volume of food. Have been following dietary recommendations and nutritional supplements Nearly Religiously! Carbs very minimal. Protein max. Wine drinking drastically reduced from 2 daily to 2-3 weekly. Foods purchased in portion control containers. I could probably lose more by going back to liquid nutrition and cutting out ALL the wine and carbs. Of course, I could also do exercise but I am quite protective of my two replacement hips and that is not a sustainable option. Yes, I know I could do pushups and squats and add some muscle which might benefit a smidgeon in the long run but the "juice is not worth the squeeze." I don't believe I can do much more without negatively impacting my life satisfaction. At this point, I am satisfied that "enough is enough".
