Feel like im losing slow



Recommended Posts

I am now 4 months out and have lost 40 lbs. I feel like that is kind of slow as my doctor said I would average about 15 lbs a month . But that's an average of 10 lbs a month so I will take it and be happy! could I have done that on my own..... Yes and I have done it on my own! Question is could I have done that on my own and kept it off? absolutely not or I would not have had a band and I would not have had a revision to sleeve. Although I feel like it's a little slower than I had hopes for I finally feel like this is it for me, I finally found a tool that will help me keep the weight off ! Can't wait till another 4 months to see where I am at! :-) another 45 lbs or so and this girl is going on one Gigantic shopping spree!

I averaged 10 pounds a month, then I averaged 4 lbs. a month, now it's down to a pound or two a month. As you say, the goal is keeping it off, and you sound like you are well on your way to do that.

I had revision from band to sleeve on 11/27/13 and down 82 pounds. Everyone is different~ that said, you had a lower starting weight than I did and you certainly weigh less than I do right now!!

I am three months out and I have lost 15 pounds. I am a slow loser too. Hang in there it could be worse.

Sounds like me. I'm 9 mths out and have lost about 25 lbs. Those last 10lbs are a b****. At 4 weeks, I had lost 14 lbs and I've been easily maintaining for about 5 mths now. If I tried hard enuf, I think I'd be able to get off the last 10 lbs!

Good luck!

You sound just like me. I'm 4 months out. Had my revision done on Dec 27,2014. I am down 40 pounds and feel like its super slow. The only thing that's keeping me going is the idea of maintaining the loss. It's been 4 months of not gaining weight so I'm happy about that. I go to the doctor on Monday so I'll see what he thinks. Keep up the good work and never give up.

Yep sounds like me too. I had my revision on 1/13/14 and only lost about 15lbs but I'm down about 12in of my body. The scale started moving and I've lost about 7.5 in April. That's because I'm trying to keep my calories to about 1200 and exercising about 3-4 times a week when my schedule allows it. I also started Dietbetters.com. You bet money on losing weight and if you meet your goal you win a share of the pot! Nice incentive! I have about 50lbs go to to meet my goal. Hopefully by this time next year I will have made it!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
