I haven't lost for the last 3 weeks..had a check up yesterday and the Dr couldn't explain why I hadn't lost any. She said i should be losing 30lbs in 30 days this early.

I think that reflects poorly on your surgeon to set unrealistic expectations.

You were 199 on your surgery date. Your surgeon expects you to lose 15% of your body weight (30 lbs) in 30 days? I'm not even sure that is possible.

Hi. I had surgery on 4/15/19. HW 378. DOS 319.8. CW 296.9. I’m happy with my progress. I lost the first 18 lbs in less than 2 weeks and because of the rapid weight loss my body went into self preservation mode and weight loss stalled. But Its moving again and I think its because I am finally able to get in more Protein and calories. I also walk about 2 miles and do a work out video at home about 5 days per week. So be patient. When you lose weight fast and then stop it’s your body’s natural reaction. Good luck!

I agree. People that lose that much during the first month often start at over 300 lbs. That surgeon is clueless.

I went 3 weeks with not a pound lost. I lost so much the first month that my body was probably just adjusting. I've again not lost anything the last 4 days, even though I wear a Fitbit, exercise & track my food. I just have to trust this process. It will all be ok!

I was 202 on my surgery date. I sure as hell didn't lose 30 pounds in 30 days. I lost 14 pounds and was damn happy about it.

I had my bypass surgery 04/25/2019. It was one of the happiest and best decisions made. My depression comes from the weight loss I started at 308. and now 285. I walk everyday I work out and eat what it says in my booklet. My weight is not moving, is this normal?
Yes. Most people loose 2 -4 lbs a week. You are om target. Not a race! You got this!!!

A quicky Poem from me, the Bariatric Poetess Laureate;
The Three Week Stall ---
Ooh I hate it All ---
Please may my weight soon decrease!---
Until then, I will find and comprehend No Peace!
The inches are leaving----
I want to keep believing--'
The sizes are smaller too--'
But Please. Mr. Stall, I do hope you are through!

I understand your depression and disappointment. You do something drastic, you are in pain, you lose one of your bestest friends and comforts (food) and now you want it to count. And you are starting higher than others at over 300 pounds, and so losing 30 pounds in one month seems perfectly reasonable because you've seen others post about the same results ---it's possible, so why not to you too! We forget that age, sex, genetics--all the things we can't control --play a huge part.

Just remember there are going to be stalls, heck there will be times that you gain two pounds over night for smelling a cookie, these things will drive you nuts and will always suck. Everyone goes through it. EVERYONE. You are not alone. Stick with that program and you will get your results. My team said to expect 8-12 pounds of loss every month for the first 6 months, 6-8 pounds for months 7-12. So even if you are on the low end of expectations you'd still lose 84 pounds in a year. And, hey, that is not bad!

Good luck to you.

You can have up to 2 to 3 Weeks no weight drop .You will lose inches so Measure once a Week.Then all of a sudden you will drop 10.Its very rare that it doesn’t work .People fail not the Surgery.
