How Fast Is The Weightloss?



Recommended Posts

My surgeon would like 1 lb every 7-10 days. That was a BREEZE in the beginning, I dropped 50+ lbs in just a few months. My weight loss essentially stopped at the 3 month mark...I've been on a plateau for 6 weeks now. Stuck completely at 191 lbs. I'm not complaining at all - - I've lost over 50 lbs!! I know everyone goes through plateaus but no matter how prepared you feel you are, they're still frustrating.

I've lost 55lbs in 5 months. It's been slower this past month. I really don't exercise though. Sometimes I walk. I think the big key is LOW carbs/sugar!!!! I'm happy if it goes slow bc then the skin can keep up and not get too saggy. That's my goal anyway!! :)

You don't want to to lose weight so quickly then you will have loose skin. I've found lifting weights prevents loose skin and stretch marks.< /p>

For me, it couldnt be described as fast by standards here, but I was ecstatic about 2-3 lb per week for a few months - never had I achieved that before in my life. I lost about 50% of my excess weight this way within six months, the rest took literally two to three years to completely lose. But I am not a calorie counter, i did it all on about 1500 a day and I exercised regularly - running an hour five to six times a week for the most part, now I do spin classes and strength training too.
