No such thing, really. Some MDs talk abot percentage of excess weight lost... Follow your plan and you WILL lose weight. That is for sure! I am a slow loser, and at 9 months I've lost 110# (started at 423# and 6'2"). I am still losing, very slowly. I am focused on the food PLAN and the activity PLAN and let the pounds take care of themselves. You will do GREAT!!!

There is no average.. Its been 9+ months for me and ive dropped 200lbs! thats fast. SO there is truly no normal weight loss. Makes a difference if your a guy or a gal. etc etc .. How much you work out. How strict you are etc etc

Hi Butterfly, my height is also 5'4, and I weighed 284 pounds. After 3 months I had lost 50 pounds. But like they said above, everyone is different, but as long as you stick to the plan, you will lose weight. Of course there will be stalls/plateaus along the way, but that is normal.

1-3 pounds a week and your surgeon will be happy.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
