Weight loss slowed the first month



Recommended Posts

I had my vsg done on 2/20/19. The first week I lost 15 pounds. The second week I lost 5 lbs. the third week was only 2 lbs. I’m still only taking in a Protein drink and Soup. Is this normal or should I be worried?

No. I had mine on the 25th. I've weighed the same weight for 5 days and I'm hardly taking anything in. We will both start losing again. Best of luck!

Don't worry. You've lost 22 pounds in 3 weeks. That's pretty amazing! People tend to see a larger loss at first, then it starts slowing down a bit, but there will be weeks that it could jump back up to a 5 pound loss. That's how my weight loss is. I'll lose nothing one week, then 5 pounds in a row the next 2 weeks, then 1 pound the next week, etc. It just varies.

No worries, that's perfectly normal. There's a well-known stall somewhere around Week 3 or 4 when transitioning from liquids to soft foods and just recovering from the surgery in general. You've lost a good amount already, keep up the good work!

Thanks for the feed back it definitely helps. It’s so easy to go back to I’m not losing anything so why not just eat.

That worries me! Came home from surgery a few pounds up. Four days out now and I'm 1 pound down from surgery date.

I came home 2 pounds heavier. Plus now I'm stalled the last 4 days, but I know it's got to pick back up, because I'm not eating a lot. What's your diet this week?

Still on Clear Liquids. I can start full liquids tomorrow.

Sadness! Last night I realized that I really had ANOTHER day of clear liquids to go! 😱 I made it, though! Almost bedtime and I'm totally looking forward to that Protein Shake in the morning!!!
