I am a couple months post-op with the gastric sleeve and have a problem: the dreaded weight loss plateau.
I was doin’ great, losin’ weight at a steady pace, but then…boom! Several weeks, no weight loss!
I need some help with this. I started at a great support group, but the instructors turned over and unfortunately I don’t like the new lady very much – she’s a little judgemental. So, I stopped going, but now I’ve stalled in my weight loss and I don’t know what to do : (
I’ve been reading that this slow weight loss happens to a lot of people after the sleeve and it’s just something you have to power through.
But, I was hoping to get some help getting over the plateau. Are there any tips to “jump start” my weight loss again? Should I change my diet at all? More exercise to get my metabolism going? Pray extra hard to the weight loss gods? I haven’t yet found anything that has helped!
I was doing so well and I just don’t want to lose momentum. They say it takes 3 weeks to build a habit and 3 days to break it – I just don’t want to lose any of the steam I’ve built up the last couple months.
Thanks so much in advance!
