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!

      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.
