There are far too many variables to give you a solid answer. These are the things that determine how fast someone loses:

How much weight they need to lose: The heavier the person, the quicker and larger the losses.

Gender: Men lose much faster and more efficiently than women. Damn them!

Age: The older you are, the slower your metabolism is.

Medical Issues: Does the person have outlying medical issues that require medication that can cause slower losses or are they restricted from regular exercise?

Compliance to the program: Not meaning whether you’re following your new lifestyle absolutely perfectly, but whether you’ve honed in on what ultimately is working perfectly for YOU. If you stall out or aren’t losing as quickly as you feel you should be, don’t be afraid to change things up! Know your macros; how much Protein, calories, carbs, etc do you need to be losing weight consistently. Adjust when needed ( and it will be needed periodically). Some people ditch most carbs, some people keep a certain amount of healthy carbs in their diet. Whatever works for them.

Comparison is the thief of joy. If you understand the reasons why some lose faster and more efficiently than others, you’ll be less apt to beat yourself up about it.

You can't compare pounds to pounds given everyone starts at a different weight, age, gender, all sort of things.

With sleeve you're supposed to lose 30% of your excess weight in 3 months, 50% of your excess weight in 6 months, and 70% of your excess weight in 12 months.

I'm at 4 months and I've lost 35% of my excess weight

Yep, my weight loss doesn’t match up to others who did it roughly the same time. I’m older, lower starting weight and have a crappy metabolism. I have absolutely stuck to the plan though and lost over 35 pounds since 1/22. Is it earth shattering? No, but it’s not a race. This journey is for life

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
