Rate of weight loss



Recommended Posts

Hello friends, I Had my surgery On April 29th. since having my surgeryI have only lost 35 pounds. I feel like I should have lost more by this point. I'm following my diet very closely I started to work out this week. So I was just wondering if anyone else has had this experience and if this seems normal to any of you. I feel like I should have lost more weight by now.

I was sleeved the same date I am down 40lbs since surgery and lost 20lbs on the pre op diet. From what I have seen looks pretty normal.

Starting weight?

Only 35?! You've lost almost twice what I have in about the same time - I have lost almost 18 pounds since my surgery on May 2. I was told to expect to lose about 2-3 pounds per week.

you'd lost more than I did at that point. Seriously, you have no control over your rate of weight loss. You only have control over whether you stick to your plan or not. If you stick to your plan, the weight WILL come off, either fast or slow. I was a slow loser from the get-go but was very committed to my plan. I lost all of my excess weight - over 200 lbs. Just stick to the plan...

It's normal, I had my surgery on the April 29th. Yesterday I was at 216 and today I am at 214 a total of 30 lbs since surgery and (46 lbs overall). My doctor and dietitian said my rate is above expectation. Don't compare yourself to others. There are times when I am at the same weight for couple of days and then I see a 2 lb drop on the scale.

Thats the same date of my surgery! Im happy to hear your doing so well. I think Im at one of those phases where my loss has stalled. Ive been at 254 for over a week. Thank u for sharing... it helps alot to know others who are going thru the same things right now.

We are our biggest critics. You will do fine especially that you are exercising. Currently I spin, work out on the elliptical and treadmill and was jut cleared weights. You will be successful continue to do what you are suppose to do. Don't pay no attention to those that loose an enormous amount of weight in one month. Your success is your very own and you are doing amazing so far.

I learned to not compare my weight loss rate to others. I know! Its hard to do! But this is your journey and you're doing fantastic!! Remember, another person losing a ton of weight fast may have started at a much higher weight than you. I had RNY on Nov 28, 2018 and was concerned that I was slowing down - 2 to 3 pounds per week. My nutritionist did a check on my muscle mass vs. fat and I'm retaining muscle which means I'm doing it right. You're doing great! Congrats!

      Hate thinking about foods I used to love... Burgers & wings. Gotta stay focused. 😤

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
