84lbs in not quite 6 months. Down a total of 140 or so pounds. Just got below 200 yesterday for the first time since I was around 13 years old or so. Best decision I’ve ever made for me and my family.

I’m 3 months post gastric bypass and have lost around 52lbs so far. My highest weight when I started this journey was 330lbs, pre surgery weight was 284.7lbs, and my current weight fluctuates between 231-234lbs. My goal weight is 160lbs so I have around 70lbs left before I get there.

Thanks for sharing this!

Yes, those numbers seem low, but I’m okay with that.

I feel as if I’ve really slowed down at 60 pounds lost at 4.months, but I’m about where I should be at the 6 month mark.

I started at 246 pounds on sleeve day

Hi All - Happy 4th weekend! Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday. I was excited to report this time last year we would have feasted on 2 ½ Boar's Head hot dogs, macaroni salad, Wise potato chips and apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Oh boy! This year - I am now 6 months out and 85 pounds down AND prepared a new menu of Tomato and watermelon salad with roasted hazelnuts, shrimp and filet tenderloin grilled kebabs with lots of veggies and chia seed chocolate sugar free pudding! Still only able to eat a few bites of each item BUT never felt deprived or the ability to enjoy such a big food centered holiday. I love my sleeve!

How did everyone do? What did you enjoy eating? Exploring new strategies to get me moving toward my goal of 130 at 5 feet tall! Any idea's or suggestions welcomed? Want to look fabulous for our 25th vow renewal ceremony with dinner and dance next spring - May 17, 2020. ;]

9 weeks out and have lost 24 lbs. I had a stall for about 8 days. I’m very happy with 10-12 lbs per month!

Well this is just sad. Surgery was 1/22/19 and I’ve only lost 52 pounds. I wish it was more :(

Results vary every 'body' is different

I've seen people at 6 months lose between 50 and 100lbs constantly.

You must commit 150% to the diet guidelines and include some form of exercise to see best results!

The surgery is a tool bit it's up to you to utilise it as best you can!!

I think this is a really good steady weight loss that is realistic. Great reminder to just keep going - make the right choices, keep pushing through the stalls.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
