    I sometimes wonder what exactly treatment teams are telling their patients about the speed of weight loss.

    I agree. People that lose that much during the first month often start at over 300 lbs. That surgeon is clueless.

    Currently 6 weeks out. Everyone is different in my surgical group two people woke up hungry. I had bypass. I would say food aversion was the name of the game for me for about four weeks. I occasionally had head hunger but no real hunger. Breakfast: no hunger Lunch: yes hunger ( I walk at least 4 miles in the am so maybe that is why. Dinner: no hunger. Even when I am hungry, it isn't the same at all as before. It isn't a gnawing feeling that won't go away-. It is more like....hmmm I could eat but if I can't that is okay, too. Also, like one bite removes that feeling completely. I still have to consciously remind myself to eat, even with my new hungry feeling once a day.
