Am I loosing Weight to quickly?



Recommended Posts

My surgery was a week ago today. I'm down 23.1 pounds since that day. I see most people in the first couple months seem to loose between 20-40 pounds and that is what I expected. To be over half way there in a week has me a little excited but concerned at the same time. I've been meeting the diet requirements I was given which was basically 60 Fluid ounces and 50 grams of Protein a day. I'm feeling great and I'm having no problem getting my fluids down, I could do more if I needed to. I would love to hear opinions on this before I go back for my follow-up on Monday.

No, I don't think losing too fast is a thing initially if you are getting in your Protein and fluids. You have more weight to lose so it will initially come off at a faster rate. Also, since you have lost so much so fast, you may hit a plateau and then will be stressing that you haven't lost weight for a week or two. That is totally normal also. It all balances out in time. Just enjoy the ride-it's amazing!

Some of that's probably fluids given by IV in the hospital. When I came home I weighed more than when I went in and dropped almost 10lbs that week.

As long as you're following your surgeon's plan I'd think you'd be good, I lost 14 lbs the first week so I think everyone is just different.

I am two days post op and can't seem to take anything. My nausea is bad and I can only take sips of Water so I'm not getting any Protein in.

That's ok. I didn't either. Use ur nausea and pain meds early. Small sips all day. Follow ur doc's orders. U'll be ok.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
