Weight Loss At 7 Months



Recommended Posts

So I am a little disappointed I had surgery July 26, 2011 I started at 262 and know I am at 198. I know I should be happy about my results but I feel like I am doing something wrong and that I should be loosing more weight. So my question is, is the weight I lost about where I should be or should I have been losing more? Also, when does the weight loss REALLY slow down or will I keep loosing a few pounds a month? I am just scared that I wont lose anymore weight and I will be fat forever. And one more thing I would like to know how many calories and all that others are eating at 7 months. Thanks

I am 5.5 months out and right now I do around 600-800 calories a day. I tend to go closer to 800 now as I was slowing down at 600 calories.

Honestly your weight loss is great. It is never good to compare yourself to others. Just keep making the right choices and the weight will continue to come off. Someone mentioned that they knew someone who took 2.5 years to lose all there weight but they have kept it off for years.

I barely topped 60 lbs at 6 months. I say you are doing awesome! Just keep it up. I fluctuate between 700 - 800. I really need to incorporate more exercise. I think I am extremely sedentary and that's what keeps me from losing faster.

The first month I was home I was very sick and didnt lose anything but after all that passed I have been losing. but these last few months have been bad last Febuary I lost nothing and that is when I really started getting into using my treadmill everyday. I am just so discouraged. Thank you ladys for your help.

I had my surgery on July 19, 2011. My weight on surgery day was 239.6 and today I'm 163.8 = 75.8 loss. I'm 5'5.75. I do exercise EVERY day (ride a real bike mounted on a trainer) for 40 minutes. I'm sure the exercise has helped hasten thing along. Of course I'm loosing more slowly now than I did at 1st (averaging 1.25 pounds a week now). This surgery is the best thing I ever did!

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

      desired range fat % 11-22 / fat mass 17-38.5 lbs
      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
