CheshireCat Posted August 24, 2008 Report Share Posted August 24, 2008 Got surgery in january with Dr. Ortiz and Martinez (they both were there that day). Weight at surgery was 203. Lost about 15 pounds before that on the pre-op diet. From my second fill in the middle of february through mid may I lost around 30 pounds. It's now mid august and I haven't lost a pound since Stuck at 173-176. I have a 4 ml band, and it's at 3.8ml so another fill is out of the question. I work full time, and go to school full time while helping my husband raise a family of 5 so any more structured exercising is kind of out of the question for at least another 2 years or so. I'm eating around the 1200 recommended calories per day. I'm only 5'3" and would honestly like to lose another 30 pounds or so... Questions! Any help? Is it just a plateau I have to overcome in the weight loss? Is it common to stall for a bit? Anything else I can do? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
