    Starryeyed can you give me some advice please. I'm so worried at the minute. I haven't lost any weight for 2 weeks. I am 7 weeks post op and have lost 4 stone including my 4 weeks milk diet I know it's a lot but I've been walking lots eating good things and still no loss. Did you experience this? Thanks xx

    Hi Sarah, it's very common to have a stall - all I can say is be patient it's a lot of weight you've lost so far. If you even it out in the 11 weeks it's 5lb a week! Look at it that way: honestly everyone goes through a stall from anywhere in week 3-9 it's the new introduction of foods and your body adjusting to major surgery and learning a new way. Xx

    I stalled twice in 3 weeks when I was about 9 weeks. 5 months next week and haven't stalled since or put any on. It is normal. Just make sure you get enough protein so your body doesn't go into starvation mode as that will stop you losing.
