You've done great losing 46lbs! My surgery was 12/29. Even when I stall and the scale doesn't change, I can feel changes in my clothing (and shoes!?) so I'm hopeful and excited like you.

That's since my highest weight! I was 280 at surgery so about 19 lbs lost :)

Brittany ,. I'm almost identical to you. I had my sleeve on 12/29 and I'm 17# down. However I slowed waaay down early at like 1 week or so.

I lost 13 pounds the first week and then only 2lbs each week since. Oh we'll at this point I'll be at my goal wt in 30 weeks so I'll take it!

I completely agree! I lost 11 the first week so we're basically identical. I am staying off the scale till my 1 month post op on the 1st :)

So, we're basically losing at the same rate. Lost all my weight first week, have only lost a couple of pounds week 2 and 3. Dr said it's normal. The key for me is it's going down, and I know it will eventually go down more. I feel so much better already having almost 25lbs off, it's been worth it.

That's very reassuring to know that others are having the same trajectory and that your Dr. said it's normal. Thanks!

Good to know others are going as slowly as I am. I have added an hour of walking. Exhausted after but it feels good to be outside. I take a Protein Drink with me to help with the fatigue. They tell me my body is in starvation mode and that I need to eat more. Never thought I would hear myself sayc- yeah right.
