Had surgery 6/24. Lost 21 pounds so far - can someone tell me how long it took to lose your weight?

Use the heavy scale app, it has great weight loss predictors based on current and overall weight loss

If you need an andriod app, instead of iOS, try Libra Weight Manager. It does the same thing.

depends on where you start (200 lbs? 300 lbs? 400 lbs?) , how compliant you are with your program, and your rate of weight loss. Some people lose everything in six months - some in a year (common), and some even into year 2. I finally stopped losing about 18-20 months post-op.

I had surgery the same day as you (sleeve). As of today I have lost about 25lbs. i expect that will slow down some as I add foods back in, but i feel like I can lose 15lbs a month till I get to my goal weight

Good luck

I’m going to download the happy scale app to check out! Hubz and I are 12 days out and at 31&27.

Guys I also found a free app called “Monitor Your Weight” that allows you to add your weight daily, set your target weight goal and target date goal. It’s what I was looking for - I wanted a daily log to look back on. This may be TMI (so stop reading now if you’re squirley) but as we know, this process definitely leaves us constipated. Someone on here stated they use colace when needed. Well after 3 days of usage, last night I finally went and I literally felt like my life exited my body! :). In all seriousness, not going for that long made me feel sluggish. Anyway - long story short - I lost 2 POUNDS that next morning. Crazy.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
