For the past week, the number on the bathroom scale hasn’t budged. This is called a stall, and all of the books I read about weight-loss surgery warned me about it.
I don’t remember the scientific reason for stalls, but I think it has to do with how quickly you lose weight after surgery. After all, we’re all essentially cavemen. The body is designed to hold onto as much fat as possible so it can be burned later if necessary.
This morning, the scale went down a little bit. I hope that means I’m starting to lose weight again. Fingers crossed.
