I'm 3+ years out and can't remember specifics, but I can tell you I'm down 150 pounds and fluctuate between 152-160 most weeks.

You will see it varies with everyone, but I think the rule of thumb Dr's use is 80-90% of excess weight in 6 months.

As usual it seems to be the more you need to lose the faster it happens, but again depends on the individual :)

Oh fab, welcome to the journey :D

Sip sip sippity sip fluids and focus on your Protein and don't rush to get onto 'real' food, just chill now, your body can start healing, start some gentle exercise once you feel up to it and come and chat here if you have a hard day/moment :)

rate of weight loss is a very individual thing depending on so many factors - age, gender, starting BMI, metabolic rate, activity level, whether or not you lost a lot of weight pre-op, etc. Some lose it super fast and others lose it slowly. But if you stick to your program, the weight WILL come off, whether fast or slow. I was a slow loser the whole time. I thought I would never lose all my excess weight at the rate I was going, but I did...

I read somewhere that the first few weeks it's 5-10 lbs a week then 2-3 pounds a week on average (of course most of us had the expected 3 week stall). I initially lost maybe 8-10 total in the first 2 weeks then it dropped to 3/week then 2 a week steadily unitl the 6/7 month mark when I hit my goal of 70 lbs. Everyone is different.

I was 330lbs. I lost about 70lbs the first 6 months., I had my surgery 1/29/2019. Today 11/30/19, I was at ths doctor and I weighed in at 217.2lbs. The past month its really slowed down. If you can get in 80-100g of Protein and lots of Fluid you can lose more weight and not be so hungry. I wish you the best of luck. You got this! I shouldve taken more before pics so I could compare. Don't have very many. But this is 1p3lbs gone I think...inCollage_20191023_020705475.thumb.jpg.9356a3ae88f74d61ca0d5a02ba0cd227.jpg

Congrats on surgery.

My highest all time was 325lbs.

My most recent high when I started this journey in May of 2017 I weighed 287lbs and was 256lbs the first visit and weigh in with the surgeon.

I weighed 222lbs on surgery day at 6 months into the program.

I reached 1st goal at 7 months I think? That was 150lbs.

This morning post poopy I weighed 131.4lbs.

It will happen quicker than you think.

In general expect 2-4lbs of loss per week as average. The first two months people usually lose their most weight cuz that's when they are eating the least.

Congratulations. I haven't weighed 131 since 7th grade. I can't even fathom losing so much. I've totally slowed down :( I bet you look great. Take care :)

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
