Slow weight loss



Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I was banded three months ago and had my third fill yesterday. I have lost 26 lbs but can't shake the feeling that the weight loss is so slow!! I feel like I should be further along. Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi Emily, You're losing about 2 lbs a week. That's about what the surgeons recommend.

Some people loose more , but that's not always good for your health. Keep on doing what

you're doing and in a year,you'll have lost 100 lbs. That doesn't sound too bad.

Almost 2 months for me, and I feel like my weight loss has been really slow too. I had my first fill yesterday (Saturday), so hoping I will feel more restriction! I have to keep reminding myself of how MUCH and how poorly I was eating before. And to stay positive and know that I am becoming healthier every day.

26 pounds in 3 months is almost 10 pounds a month -- that is FANTASTIC!! Any faster and it wouldn't be healthy -- that is what I averaged for the entire time I have had the band and I have reached my goal after 9 months -- be ecstatic and enjoy -- you are on your way!!

Omg! I feel like that too like it's slow or am I really losing weight, even though the scale says I am and some clothes. I had my surgery august 29, 2011 I was a 320 that day now I'm at 293-294, but I feel like the weight is taking forever to come off it's not like I eat so much food. I guess I'm looking at the people that lose more weight quicker and I Ned to stop doing that, and besides I gotta admit I can't get in the right mind set to start exercsing yes that's right didn't start yet, but trust me I'm gonna start. Oh and I have had 2 fills so far and suppose to get one thursday. So hopefully that maes me feel like want to feel like I'm doing my part and it's doing it's part also am I right or wrong give me some advice...

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
