that's WAY above average. Unless you're talking "My 600 lb Life" contestants, who start out at much higher BMI's than the average bariatric patient, an average range of loss for the first month is more like 15-25 lbs.

I lost 16 lbs the first month, and I started out at over 300 lbs.

And at 11 months 🐺woman 7, my friend, I am Now one- half the size I started this last Weight Loss trek at - 188 pounds , down from 365+ , and it has its moments of glory, a few tendrils to cling to- but similar to the Bible teaching
What does it benefit a man to gain the whole world and lose his immortal soul?
Along with the weight lost, I lost ME- will I ever find ME through all this? It is my fervent prayer🙏 I STILL WILL!

Think about how long it would take to lose 30 lbs before surgery? It's almost a miracle.

That is excellent! I keep reading posts where we have been conditioned by what we should be losing based on what we see on television as well as comparing ourselves to others. It has been almost 3 months for me and I am down 40lbs. I had to accept that my body and metabolism is specific to me. Not to mention, when was the least time I lost 40lbs in 3 months....that would be never. Try to stay focused on the fact that you are definitely losing and getting healthier every day. I wish you the best. 👍🏽

Congratulations! 30 lbs is fantastic! Be proud of yourself and try not to compare your progress to how others have done. Everyone is so different. Just focus on your own accomplishments and enjoy!

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
