Recommended Posts

Hi... I'm two months post op and i lost 34 lbs since the day of the surgery... What bothers me is that i lost 30 lbs in the first month and lost only 4 in the second.... I feel really upset and discouraged because am losing weight so slowly .. Is it normal to lose only 4 lbs in an entire month? Or am i doing something wrong. Plz help!

Most people typically stall within the 3rd and 7th week. It's very common what you're going through. Don't worry too much about it. There's not much you can do except keep doing all the right things...it will resolve itself.

most ppl don't lose 30lbs in a year. I think you're doing pretty well. remember, healthy weight loss is 1-2lbs/ week. think of it over a year. 50-100 lbs in a year is damn good. chin up.

Your not in a race, so don't feel like that its in vein.... What are you eating, drinking and etc... Tell us a little more maybe we can help you out a bit. Honestly loosing 30 pounds in month is like wow, I wish I could do that.

My friend, all the above are good advice.

I worry that the REAL danger of a stall, is to cause your head to give up, and then THAT would be a problem. WE ALL go through times of no loss., followed by a good loss. Just follow your program!!! DO NOT GIVE UP!

I see you are from Syria. I pray that you, all your family and friends, and ALL the people of Syria can remain safe in this terrible time.

I lost 22.8 my first month, 11.6 my second, 10 pounds my third, and "only" 3.8 over the last 13 days of my fourth month.

This is NOT the miracle speed loss some think it is, it's hard work and good choices, but it's a great tool. I love my sleeve.

Hello I am five weeks out, also lost 30, stalled for a week. I understand how you feel. And I know that everyone says, be Patient...you have done well already, but its hard to accept that when you are barely eating and exercising. It truely feels like it should be falling off of you. I totally get it. But I guess we have no choice but to wait and hope. I am happy and grateful. But I understand how you feel. Xoxo

I feel ur pain. I'm almost 7 weeks out and lost 17 lbs. been losing and gaining the same 1-2 lbs for the past 2 weeks. it's getting old really fast. I started at 174 (band revision) so I knew I would lose it slower, but this is ridiculous. I'm almost 2 mths out with only 17 lbs lost. Wish I was 30. Count your blessings.

I could cut my calories even more than they are but then I'd be miserable and on a diet. Thats why I got the sleeve in the first place, so I would never diet again. I've already lost a size in clothing and that feels good.

Good luck!

I'm a big fan of mind games. Tell yourself you lost 15 lbs in month one and 15 lbs in month two. I know it sounds silly, but when you look at it like that, it's AWESOME weight loss. Give your body time to catch up - it's been through a lot and it is being responsive. Hang in there! You're doing great!

I've noticed when the scale doesn't move the inches do. I tend to drop the pant sizes then almost like my body is catching up!

it does take a little while for the weight to start to run off because you're still swollen inside.. I think about the 2nd month for my weight to start coming off maybe a little longer than that...

        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.
