I lost almost 40 lbs pre-op starting in April up through my July 17 surgery.

I am not really worried about the speed of weight loss, though, because I assume it will be at least a couple of pounds a week no matter what, and will probably be more. If you add that up over a year, that's a lot of weight to drop in a relatively short period of time.

I'm actually looking forward to a few weeks out when I can increase my calories past 500. I want to start some weight training, and it is hard to put on any muscle at 500 calories/day. The biggest thing it has done for me, so far, is to help get an initial chunk of weight off, start getting in shape and make some steady progress. The carb, hunger and portion control aspects help A LOT toward those ends.
