How many pounds do you lose per week/per month?



Recommended Posts

My weight loss has slowed a lot lately. I was going from losing a pound a day, to now maybe a pound a week. I have calculated that over the last two months I have lost 11 lbs and I am 6 months out. For the last two months I have been bouncing around the same weight for a while... it's been a real struggle to lose.

Can some of you 5 month plus people tell me how much you are losing per week and per month?

Thank you!

It's really slowed down for me and I've checked and double-checked that I'm doing everything I'm supposed to be.

I charted my weight every week and did some math and figured out I'm currently losing .32 per day. That's about 2 lbs per week (sometimes less because,,, life happens.) I don't think it will always be that way.

I guess, looking at that chart above, I'm in range. I started off - with my RNY in Feb - at 306. I've lost 57 lbs.

Just seems so slow but I guess it all adds up!

I had surgery in February too. My weight loss is very slow, even though I should be losing more, I am not. I lost 5 pounds in June and 7.5 in July. Nothing this month, in fact I weigh the same as July 26th. I have to do something to kickstart my weight loss, because I still need to lose 87 pounds and if I only have lost 73, can you imagine how hard it will take to lose the rest? Hoping I will still lose till 18 months. Check out the app get 2 goal. At first I was way ahead of where I should be, now I'm barely hanging on to being ahead. Some people lose faster, but it is hard to not compare.

We will get there frou frou!

At 9 months out, I am now expected to lose between 7-10lbs per month... but I've basically reached my goal weight and it's slowed lately. Like a pound week is okay with me now... I realize these last 15 will probably drag....

I’m approaching 13 months out from WLS and my overall weight loss has been 1.86/week
However it was much higher in the earlier phases of my weight loss journey. But even so, I’m down 125 lbs so who cares how slow it comes off as long as it comes off????

I haven’t had surgery yet but this all sounds wonderful to me! I wasn’t heavy until my 40s (I think I came out of the womb thinking I was) and I’m in my 60s now. Every since high school I’ve made calendars and in later decades spreadsheets figuring out how long it would take me to lose the x pounds I wanted to take off at 1.5-2 pounds a week. I NEVER succeeded. I might get the weight off in the earlier years but never that fast and never permanently. Have heart. You are making beautiful progress!

I am averaging 6-7 pounds a month now. So pretty close to what you are losing. I feel like I am slow loser in comparison (which I know we shouldn't do) to others who had same starting stats as myself. As long as it keeps coming off I'll be happy with that. You are right, it all adds up, just keep on keeping on. We'll get to our goals.

      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.
