When did your weight loss slow down?



Recommended Posts

So I am over 3 months post op. I had a one brief 1 week stall but otherwise I am consistently at 2-3 lbs/week. I know everyone is different etc. but did you lose quickly until month 3, 4 or 6 then slow down and stay at that rate for months?

Did your weight loss stay steady until 6 months out? Did it just slowly decrease over time?

My weight loss was at its best in the first three months. It slowed down over time. Just because its slower does not mean you will stop losing weight.

Woohoo! you are close to goal.

I lost the most the first month - after that I lost 10-12 lbs a month up until about month 6. Then it dropped to maybe 8-10 lbs, and so on....so a gradual drop. Once I got to a year out, it was crazy slow - maybe 2 lbs a month. But I kept losing for 18 months.

I was losing 10 pounds a month pretty steady until about 8 months out. Now I'm still losing but at a much slower rate.

I'm about two months out, and I've lost about 52-54 lbs. (Fluctuating a bit). It seems like I'm stalling a bit now, but I know that it'll be broken eventually. If I lose 10 more lbs, I'll be below 300.

I’m 3 1/2 months post op and I’ve lost 64 lbs since the pre op diet.. I was losing a lb ever 2 days but I have slowed down with the losing to less than 2 lbs a week and sometimes only 1... I have 35 to go and I am scared the last 35 will be as tough as losing those last lbs. when I was just dieting.. I’ve purposely not over exercised because I feel that I can’t maintain extreme exercise without giving up as I’ve done before.. I try to make my exercise as fun as I can and I thoroughly enjoy it.. ( dancing for half an hour with the dog being my favorite , with the hits of miss Chaka Khan!!!).. if the last 35 come off slow, ok! I’ll get there.. if I only lose 20 more , ok! I still feel better than I have since I was 25..now 55.. I’ll take it, no regrets, no looking back.. NO un achievable expectations!!

I'm 6 months post-op RNY (surgery was on 11/28/18). I'm just starting to slow down a bit. Was losing 10-15 pounds per month, now about 7-8. Averaging about 2 pounds per week. But my nutritionist told me I will slow down and that's ok. Time to stop worrying about the number and trust the process! Only regret is that I didn't do this sooner!!

This is something with a two part answer.

The first is that, on average, we will be slowing down continually as we lose, simply because it takes fewer calories to move ourselves around all day at 300 lb as it did at 400 lb, and even fewer at 200 lb, etc. We will likely see stair steps, and some weeks or months will be lower or higher than others, but the overall trend is declining.

The second part is that we will usually experience a big drop the first couple of weeks or so (and then typically get the dreaded "three week stall") and the proceed lower at a somewhat reduced rate. This is because our initial loss it mostly Water weight associated with burning off our short term energy reserves of glycogen (basically stored carbohydrate) which gives us the "easy ten" lb that we typically lose when we start seriously dieting. After the glycogen is used up, we start to draw from our fat reserves, though there is often a pause or stall as the body changes gears.

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
