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.

      Hi guys I'm so glad I found this page.  I'm having VSG this spring and could use all the support I can get!!!
      I'm documenting my journey on youtube, if you are interested in supporting and following my journey click the link posted. 
      I'm trying to find support groups and do this journey via youtube because my family is super small and close minded so I  literally have my husband and children's support only.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
