Not making my Christmas goal!

There is no way I am going to make my Christmas weight goal, and I am a little upset over it. I have been at a weight stall for about 2 weeks now...I've maybe lost one pound in that time period. Everyone says I will have stalls but I didn't think it would be that early out. I never told anyone my Christmas weight goal, and it was to be at 230. It looked like it might happen 2 weeks ago...then that is when I got into this stall. I am not doing anything different, eating the same and doing the same exercises. I have this fear that this is all the weight that is going to come I did the surgery for nothing. I really hope that isn't the case. I mean, I only eat protein, 3 meals a day....little meals. I do not eat carbs or would think that the weight would just be melting off right now. Well, I am at 244. Do not get me wrong, I am happy about it, that means I have lost 45lbs so far. 45 pounds in 7 weeks is AMAZING and I am grateful...I just want the weight loss to pick up again.

The best way I can describe it, like when you start losing weight so fast it is like a want more and more to come off so you will do anything to get it off...then when you gets depressing. I am used to eating, dieting, and exercising all my life and nothing come off....(reason I got the surgery).... then after the surgery nothing come off and you are trying so makes you worry. I wanted to maybe "cheat" during Christmas. Not really cheat, but try some not so good things just to see how they do. I told my husband I refuse to put anything in my mouth that is not healthy unless I can get 4lbs off by Christmas Eve. I do not think that is going to happen...but we will see.

C'mon Santa...bring me a lower number on the scale!



  1. Just remember - stalls are normal. Most people go through them. The weight you've lost so far is great!

  2. I felt the same way. I was stalled due to my picc line but once it was pulled I thought is this it? I've lost 51 lbs so far, had surgery 9/20, and am happy. But once I get near going under 200..I stall. like my body is just happy at this weight. i think not!!! Don't worry. You'll lose again..and again...

  3. Stalls are annoying . . . just power thru and before you know it, it will be behind you.

    I agree it is like a drug.
