How fast did weight start coming off?



Recommended Posts

I was sleeved last week and I’ve only lost 6 lbs. I’m currently 309 but thought the pounds would fall off this week especially since I’m not taking in more than 600 calories a day and walking 3-4 miles. Waaaay less and waaay more than I did pre-op.

You may have been swollen after surgery and ivs and had to lose that as well. You're on track, I'm sure, but your surgeon will talk to you about it at your followup

I guess it happens at different rates for different people - it’s not always easy to see others losing weight faster but I found that taking measurements helps (not all progress is shown on the scale).

One thing I noticed is that I lose faster if I DONT work out! I know that doesn’t make sense, but it’s true... when I focus on walking long distances every day or going to the gym my weight loss slows to a snail pace, but when I avoid exercise but keep up my Protein intake I seem to have the biggest loss weeks.
Note: I’m using a digital scale to measure my body fat % and it seems the loss is mostly fat loss, so I don’t feel it’s (too much) muscle being lost. Though I’m starting with a personal trainer next week so I can focus on strength building from this point onwards.
Good luck!

No need to be worried. My first week after surgery I lost 7 lbs. then 0,then +1 then 9 lbs. Yes, 9 lbs. in one week! Haven’t experienced it since though. Oh, it’s slow for me but it adds up. I’ve lost an average of 15 lbs. per month. Just wait...give it a couple of months and you’ll know just what I’m talking about.

Walking 3-4 miles is super. I need to be more consistent in walking around my block.
