I'm 7 weeks out I went from 274 to 225. I feel like it's not working. Is it possible. I stretched it out?

You lost 50 lbs. in less than 2 months and you are questioning whether or not it is working? That is incredible progress! When have you ever lost even close to that on a regular diet plan? It is working.

Not trying to be condescending but how much weight did you expect to lose in 7 weeks?

Here's my stats July 31st 335 pounds November 19th 272 pounds
Time elapsed since RNY surgery 11 weeks
With 50 pounds in 7 weeks you're at a fine rate, and you're a sleeve, they traditionally are slower losing. Stop sweating the small stuff! Sure I would like to be at my goal of 175 pounds, but it won't happen for a year to 18 months, in the,meantime I can't give up and neither should you!

You've lost 50lb in two months and you are discouraged? You must have some fairly high expectations unless your post is missing some pertinent information, for instance why do you think your stomach has stretched after only two months?

That's a BIG difference 😂, don't be discouraged it's super early on yet and from what I've read and researched a lot of ppl don't feel restriction and start dropping weight quickly until they're on actual food instead drinking all your calories which in turn probably doesn't keep you full? It's still SUPER early and I'm positive nothing stretched. Keep ur chin up as long as your loosing your going in the right direction and everyone's different.

I was hoping to be down 35 to 40 pounds

Sent from my SM-G950U using BariatricPal mobile app


I am at five weeks and down 15 is all. My surgeon said to hang tight...it's early days yet! He recommended I try and stay at or under 600 calories a day (I had been closer to 800, about half of which is from Protein powders). I have changed a few things and am getting around 600 calories, 25g net carbs or less, and I'm meeting my protein requirements of at least 80g and only having to do one Protein Shake a day. He said if I'm not losing 2-3 pounds a week in the next month or so, to call them and they will want to look at food logs. Everyone is different. I watched a lot of videos on YouTube of people freaking out over early stalls, and then I looked at their most recent videos. ALL of them still lost. Hang in there!

@jujusmommy07 I lose weight slow and stall often but it does come off, stick to the plan and it will come off. The scale may not move but inches are coming off, walk as much as you can or go to the gym...and please don’t compare yourself to anyone because we are all different and all lose at different rates.

I lost about 20 lbs in the first 3-4 weeks the I didn’t lose any more weight for 4 weeks, one day I got on the scale and bam!! I was down 7 lbs but within that 4 week stall I was losing inches and my clothes were getting very lose so I knew that I was losing.

You will be fine...you got this honey.

I spent a ton of time looking at others progress to see what is normal what isn't and that wasn't a great idea. I've learned to just stick to what your medical team has asked you to do and you will progress how your body determines it best to do so.

Don't measure only pounds, measure inches lost and how you feel. Those are also important, the book of You that you are writing will still be a best seller, Believe in You- for you are great and good and you'll still show the world how things are done.

I'm at 7 months and have lost 40 lbs...husband has lost almost 75. Everyone is different on how quickly they lose the weight but don't get discouraged. Stay on the high Protein meals and let your body do the rest.

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
