8 weeks in and only lost 11kgs :(



Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I’m 8 weeks down and I’ve only lost 11kgs! Am I being too hasty? What am I doing wrong? I’m doing over 10000 steps a day, i have a Protein Shake for Breakfast (even though I can’t bare the taste of the whey shakes and the flavourless one is even worse) I have Caesar salad for lunch ( mostly lettuce, egg and bacon) other days it’s chicken, or tuna, or whole grain brown rice and chicken and dinner isn’t too different.

What’s going on? Anyone have any ideas?

people lose weight at all different rates due to many different factors - age, gender, metabolism rate, starting BMI, whether or not you lost weight prior to surgery, etc. At eight weeks out, I'd lost 26 lbs (11.8 kg). I was very worried about not losing quickly enough, but I was very committed to my plan and ended up losing 100% of my excess weight. As long as you stick to your plan, you will lose the weight, whether fast or slow. In the end, your hard work and commitment is going to have a MUCH larger impact on your eventual success than your rate of weight loss will.

Since you started at a much lower weight than most, you just don't have much to lose. The odds are that it will come off more slowly, but you will get there. Don't compare yourself to someone else who's hauling around an extra 50kgs of fat. Of course, they're burning more calories. Their weight loss will likely slow down when they get to your weight. Be patient, it will happen!

You'll lose a certain % of weight rather than # of pounds compared to others. Also, you started at a lower weight to begin with. People lose at different rates. I've become a slow loser, but at least I'm still a loser. LOL!

I’m 7 weeks out and have lost 49 lbs so far. However I weighed 345 lbs the day I came home from hospital. I think the higher the weight I may lose more at first. I’ve slowed down and seem stuck at same weight for 3 or 4 days at a time. Hopefully it will pick back up soon for me
