I had VSG 04/08, and I have only lost 55 pounds total, including what I lost before surgery.

I exercise every day!

Anyone else having this problem?
Any ideas on how to help?

The doctor explained that I would lose weight like the "stairs", instead of the "slide". It's not going to be smooth sailing all the way down. Our body will lose the weight but we must give it chance to regroup and refit our skins.

My surgery was in Feb 2019. My slowest progress so far was on my 3rd month (May). Once June came around, my progress increased again.

Good job exercising everyday.

Congratulations on losing 55 lbs. I recently lifted a 10 pound potato sack and it was "HEAVY"... So 55 is a lot! Awesome job!

Hang in there friend. We'll be skinny someday....soooon!

Thank you!

I am trying really hard! I know, I felt so silly saying "only 55 pounds" !

Thank you!

And good luck on your journey!

so you just had surgery in April? If so, at 55 lbs, you're ahead of where I was at that point.

Oh, maybe I am just paranoid then... I just feel like I am waaaaaaaay below average for post op weight loss.

I had surgery 2/25 and have lost 63 and I feel that's pretty good. I've only lost 5 pounds since June 1st.

I would say you're doing great!

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
