I also had my surgery on January 22nd and I've only lost 27lbs since. I was discouraged for awhile and thought I was doing something wrong too, but everyone loses at a different pace. Try not to focus on the number so much and I promise you will see results :)

Thats actually a little comforting to know :)

My doctor said to expect on average 1 pound a week. Slow and steady wins the race... hang in there. I'm 14 days post OP and down 16 pounds... thought it would be more and now starting pureed food today so expect it to slow down now.

I am 5 weeks out this week, and was dropping 1 to 2 pounds a day until week 4 when I regained 4 pounds and then the scale stalled. I have arthritis in both knees and they have flaired up pretty bad this past 2 weeks so walking has been going slow. I am hoping that this is the cause of the stall, but it can't explain the gain. I start aquatic exercise next week. Wish me luck. I lost 80 pounds before my surgery, and I am just getting discouraged that it has slowed to a stall after.

I telll myself even though the numbers don't always move, I'm still losing inches. My clothes and scrubs are still fitting looser and looser.

I came to the horrible realization today that I am almost 3 months out and I’ve only lost 25 pounds. There are a lot of people who would scold me and say that I should be grateful but I am absolutely gutted. I would never have thought that I would only lose 25 pounds by now and this is supposed to be the honeymoon period! I really do feel like my body is betraying me and I don’t think I’m ever going to get to my goal of 150. I’m honestly so depressed over this that I can’t handle it. I have wanted to lose weight for so long and I went to all of these drastic measures to do it and Things just aren’t working out for me the way they seem to work out for other people. I really hope that I can do something to get Weight loss going. The scale hasn’t really moved in weeks!! Like everyone else I am doing exactly what I was told to do and even exercising but I’m just not getting the results. This is all so depressing and I just don’t know what to do

Ok, so detail EXACTLY what you are doing. Let's figure it out. Take this assessment.

1. How much are you eating or drinking every day that has any calories in it? Calories, Macros

2. Do you weight, measure, and log EVERY bite that goes in your mouth?

3. How many times per day are you eating?

4. What times of day are you eatin? Are you eating at nite?

5. What quantities are you eating at each meal (ie weight on a scale + volume in a measuring cup)

6. Give us an idea of an average day of meals/foods you eat.

7. Are you exercising?

8. How much Water are you drinking?

9. Are you drinking alcohol?

Frankly, I felt I was a slow loser, too. But in the end I did better than national averages at 1 year. My weight loss picked up when I started getting most of my nutrition from real foods rather than Protein drinks/yogurt/cottage cheese, etc. Dairy kicked my booty with losses.

Also, I HAD to keep my calories/carb/fat SUPER lolo to lose weight. To lose comfortably, I had to be in the 600-800 calorie range and ideally around 650. Sad but true. There are many here like this. I'm basically in maintenance at 900cals. I'm a 5'4" very average, non-athletic, 56 year old woman. I walk 60+ minutes daily and do a tiny bit of strength training. AND I do IF. LOL. So it's a major kick in the teeth.

25 lbs in 3 months is very average/normal. In my opinion, many surgeons do not level with their patients and allow them to believe this is "easy" weight loss and that it will look like 20-25lbs in a month. But reality is it's average of 2-4lbs/week with most of it falling in the 2lb range. So guess what? That's 8lbs a month in a month that only has 4 weeks. Plus there are stalls that happen.

Hope to hear back on this assessment and let's see if we can help?

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

        Congratulations. I remember that day for me: May 13, 2014. I thought it'd never happen (especially after a 7-day stall at 200.2!!), but it was a "Hallelujah" day! Now...stay on program so you can stay in Onederland. After five years, especially...when ghrelin returns. So stay on track.

        CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!! Onederland is a GREAT place to be.
