Question Stall? Is this normal?

My loss in inches have really stalled. Is this normal? I have only lost like 1 inch in the last week and a half.

One inch in a week and a half seems like a very good amount. Stalls in weight and measurements are very common on SB and on most other eating plans. Not sure how much you need to lose in total, but be patient and keep to your plan and I'm sure you'll progress. Remember that TOM can cause bloating = inches and exercise can build muscle where you had none, so that can impact your measurements even though it is ultimately a good thing.

Best of luck,

Not to worry! Heidi is right. Try not to obsess over the ticker and just stick to plan. A stall is usually much longer than that - like months - and you will start losing inches again soon. If you get a chance to get your starting weight, it would be intersting to see how much you lose over six months.
Hang in there! You're doing fine.

Be prepared for stalls...I've been stalled on both weight and inches now for about 7 weeks. Hopefully it'll get going again soon (fingers crossed). You can't give up...its normal and you should expect it.
You didn't get fat in a week so you can't expect to lose it in a week either! hang in there...

Thanks Ruth! I know I am probably just being as excessive about the measuring tape as I would be of the scale if I could use it! Geesh! I do see NSV's by my pants getting lose though!

Finn,
Thanks for the encouragement! I really appreciate it. Your right! It didn't go on overnight so it's not coming off overnight! But it would be nice
