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!

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
