I started out at 251 and now I am 225.. My surgery was March 27 and tomorrow I will be 4 weeks out tomorrow! I kinda feel like I should have lost a lot more weight! Is my weight loss normal?

That's an average of 6.5 pounds per week. Sounds good to me.

I have the same surgery date and I'm down 3-4 pounds more than that. I think we're doing GREAT! I don't remember any diet I've ever followed that's has resulted in this kind of weight loss, and I still feel great!

Your doing great~! I had my surgery the day after yours and I am down 31 lbs as of this morning. And that is only after taking my Water pill because apparently I am still retaining fluds. Keep up the good work.

Are you onto solids yet or are you still in the pureed stage?

You are definitely NOT a slow loser! I am 2.5 months out and have only lost 20 pounds! :(

Keep up the great work!!!

I can only hope that when I have the surgery that I will lose at that rate... Hearing results like that gets me excited to have the surgery.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
