How much weight loss in 1st week?



Recommended Posts

I'm kind of curious about what to expect the first week? I know everyone is different but just curious about everyones first week.

I'm now 9 days out, and two days ago I was down 17lbs. THAT has been a great motivation to keep from going INSANE from the hunger pains.

Try not to get hung up on the amount of weight loss in the first week. Everyone is different and many people will find that they actually gain a pound or two or don't lose at all for the first week. They give you alot of fluids during surgery and depending on how long your body hangs on to them, it might take a week or two to get the loss started.

The first week I lost maybe 2 lbs because of the fluids. I am 3.5 weeks out and down 16 now.

i agree with kathy! a lot of the first losses is just Water weight from the iv.......i gained 3 pounds after my surgery, and then i lost 10 lbs plus the 3 in water weight my first week....but everyone is different. even after the first week some people just lose slower. it also depends on your pre surgery size...the bigger you are the faster you will lose. the more active you are the faster you will lose. i am now 2 weeks and 2 days out and i have lost 14 pounds. not to much...but the important thinkg to remember is that it will come off in the end, it may just take longer.

I lost 6 in my first week. And I'm just at 8 days out now, so I have no idea how its going to move in the next few weeks, but 6 pounds for me, and I"m happy with that.

I gained 5 pounds the first week... I was pumped with fluids from the surgery. I didn't really start seeing real weightloss until after week 3.

I gained 8 lbs. from the IV Fluid from my day before surgery weight (16 lbs. from my morning of surgery weight). It took 8 days before I got to my pre-op weight.

Hi I lost 10 pounds in the first week but at least 5 of those were the pounds I regained from the IV fluids. I'm finding that if the scale isn't moving much in pounds the inches are adding up.

I didnt lose a pound the first week. I am down 16 pounds since my surgery on July 26th. I lost 10 the 2 weeks before so total is 26. Im happy with that. Im not starving and I eat what I want and have lost 26 pounds...win win.

I am going into my second week now being sleeved and in my first week last week I lost 20lbs. My starting weight was 292. I am currently today 274. So it all really depends on your body. Good luck!:D

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
