Wow, I'm about 10 lbs from that right now at 3 months. I wonder if that is your weight at surgery or before getting into a program. If I use my day of surgery weight, I'm nowhere close to where I should be!

So the day you go under the knife or the day you start the pre-op diet plan? That was very different for me. Not trying to be dense, this just has me a little alarmed.

That chart is pretty accurate for me!! Was about 320 pounds on day of surgery and three months later, I was 268 pounds.

Really accurate for me too. Started at 289 and exactly 3 mos later I’m 240! I’m really hoping I️ get to 200 by 6 mos ( as the chart reads) but I’m losing 10 pounds a month so that’s 30 not 40 pounds. I️ guess I’d take 210 anyway. At 5’8 I’d look pretty good at 210! Thanks for the chart. It’s a great visual.

My co-worker across the room from me (it's not a big room) opened a Coke and I swear to Xenu, my head turned so fast towards him, I wonder if I gave myself whiplash. I haven't had soda since a couple weeks before the surgery... [emoji20]
But hey, so far I've lost 40 pounds and I have roughly 136 more to go. [emoji4]

I️ have no had Diet Coke in so long. I️ think I’m good through the winter but once summer comes I️ know I’ll want it!

I wanted those who were being discouraged about their weight loss to see what the average person who is following all rules should be losing and have a good idea of what they will lose in the next year. This is absolutely accurate for me, i was 244 and now im 207. So right on target!

Why would you want Diet Coke? It's not like we drink this stuff for its nutritional content. Why not try something like chocolate milk or Water? Either is more nutritional and tastes a HELL OF A LOT BETTER.

Pretty accurate for me. Started at 304 now 245 at 3.5 months, can’t wait to see what it will be at a year.

Thank you for posting that. I’m really glad you did. I may take that along to my next doctor visit because according to that chart I am ahead of where I should be so it’s doubly encouraging.

No, looking at your numbers you look pretty good to me. About 7 pounds difference. Keep the big picture in mind. 😊

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
