Weight lost over time



Recommended Posts

I've been searching all over the place for more info on this but I'm bored at work and I just decided to go ahead and ask you guys.

I had my surgery on 6/2, Started at 445, 419 at surgery, 397 now.

Everything is going well but I'm just trying to get an idea of what kind of weight you GUYS lost month to month. I know I'm just obsessing but I've been trying to search and find this stuff and I'm not having a ton of luck.

Does the 40 in the first month include the pre-op diet?

My biggest loss (counting from the day after surgery) was the 1st month ~ 20lbs. For the next 3 -4 months, I was losing around 15lbs month. My amount per month lost slowly trended down to about 9lbs a month over the next year.

The 1st 10 months, I lost 130 lbs, then lost another 40 lbs the following 6 months (and remember, Xmas and Thanksgiving were part of that last 6 months, so it took a few weeks to get rid of the holiday food I ate). :-)

So overall, I figure I averaged 9 1/2 - 10 lbs a month.

On surgery day, I was 415. My first month loss below counts the 2-week pre-op diet (before hitting 415) Also keep in mind that I had already lost 100lbs before surgery during insurance requirements)

Loss by month, starting with preop diet:

1st month: 30

2nd: 17

3rd: 25

4th: 15

5th: 15

6th: 13

7th: 17

8th: 13

9th: 11

10th (currently in): 10 so far with 1 more weigh in this weekend

I was sleeved June 10 at a weight of 394 and as of today am sitting at 362. I have been at 362 for the last 5 days. I think everyone looses at a different weight. Hoping for success like I see here from you guys!

I recently hit a plateau where I lost nothing in the last two weeks. I blame myself for eating too many Kind bars and not keeping a good log. Using FitBit to keep track of things and it seems my body must have gone into some serious starvation mode, because I am always under my calorie count and average a deficit of about 7,000 calories per week, but my body still holds onto the additional Protein calories I eat. Since I was advised to increase my Protein intake to 120 grams a day, my body just refuses to give it up. I will probably go back to a liquid and low carbohydrate diet to see if that kicks off the weight loss again. Even with all the Water I drink I am always hungry. Oh well, live and learn on this roller coaster ride.

I have learned that these weeks when I don't lose are part of my weight loss. For some reason, this 80% Protein, 20% good veges and fruit way of eating produces a very non-linear loss. I have adapted to it by keeping my calories around 1200 a day, get my Water and Protein grams in; weighing every 10 days; and frankly just relaxing and knowing with this formula I will lose the fat guy who lives on me. I recently did ten days without loss, but then in the next three days dropped a pant size!

I was sleeved on June 8th I was 355 down to 319 today. The stalls are real but they allow your body to adjust to the rapid weight loss. Just keep going and follow,the plan.

Here is what I do: I go to Target and buy their EAS brand of 24 g whey Protein powder. I mix it half and half with dry powdered milk, which ends up being 24-25 g. of Protein for two scoops. It is very lightly sweet, the chocolate is not too strong, and it does not have that cream texture of many Protein drinks. I mix it up a quart at a time and keep it very cold.
