To reach goal, I need to lose a total of 150. I have lost 80 at 6 month. The last 3 months have been slow. I wanted to have 100 lost by 4th of July, sadly I won't make that. The total includes my preo-op diet. I have lost a little over 50% to goal.

My surgery was 1/13 and I have lost 51 lbs. I only lost 4 last month. I stepped up my workouts and expect more this month, maybe 5 or 6. It has slowed down from those glorious early days of losing a pound a day...

Hi, I was averaging 10 lbs a month and down sixty by my sixth month. I don't think you are a slow loser.

WOW - I love reading others success! Weight loss sure does vary by person... it is hard to not get frustrated.. I feel like I am a slow loser too, then boom, in one week I lost 4 pounds, which makes my monthly loss look good! or good to me at least! I will take any loss I get!

My stats are below..just for the record.. I only weigh myself once a week, every Wed.. . Since the first Wed in June, I have not lost one single pound :( I was so hoping to hit the 250 Lb mark on my 6 month surgery date, but not going to make it.... thats o.k... I know what I am eating is in line, I know that I am kicking butt on exercising.. the weight will come off, I just need to keep on the right path. Good Luck to you, and dont be hung up on the scale...it can be frustating.

I will be 6 months out on July 3rd, I am currently 79 pounds down. I am working out pretty hard, it is true that the last 20 pounds are the hardest.:blink:

I've lost just over 80 pounds and i'm 6 months out. I've hit a rough patch this last few weeks - loss slowing right down. It's strange because I've been amping up the exercise. I have been on some medication lately that causes you to retain Water though so I'm hoping I don't slow down for long.

Don't get discouraged - focus on the future and good luck :)

Really can't remember anymore, but in 12 months i lost 150lbs, have been stablized at the same weight for 6 months and would like to lose about 20 - 30 lbs more. . . but if it doesn't happen, it doesn.t happen.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

        Had surgery on Thursday the 17th. Everything went well and came home the next day. I have been on two protein shakes and liquids/broth each day since but will finally graduate to pureed foods on Thursday. Been walking and doing my breathing exercises as recommended. No pain that Tylenol can't ease but only needed it twice since I've been home. Don't bother taking extra stuff to the hospital as you will not use it. No time to read or talking as you will be sipping all day long and walking. And they will be giving you pain meds so you will be sleepy. Definitely take lip balm and wear loose clothes to the hospital and wear the same ones home. No need to overpack. Good luck everyone who will be going next. YOU GOT THIS!!!!

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.
