you're doing great..weight don't go on overnight and it don't come off overnight either. Stick to the program, remember "you got this"

I think you're on track. I'm 8wks out also and have lost 37lbs. I stalled for 3 1/2wks too it was horrid! For the first 3months most sites say you'll typically lose from 30-40lbs. So you're ahead of the prediction!

Stop watching My 600lb Life. LOL! Seriously, that show is cool, but gives all of us the impression that we should be able to lose 25lbs in a week! LOL!

The average rate of loss is 2-4lbs per week. That's it. If you weigh more, you "can" possibly lose a lot more than that per week in the early months. But that's not a general truth.

You're doing great. There will be stalls. I had a 3 week and a 6 week stall.

Hiya, I'm 7 weeks post op and have only lost 34lb... i understand your frustration and hate that I'm a very slow loser but 45lbs is fantastic! You are doing great, keep it up!!

I am right there with you! Headed into my 9th week (sleeved 7/22). I am seeing inches come off more than the bloody numbers on the scale...honestly, I stopped stepping on it. I just do my Water and Protein like others say. I am having issues where I don't really want to eat, but make myself to stay on track with the protein. Things just taste funny!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
