But you’ve lost 50lbs?! That’s great! You’re averaging about 7lbs a month or 1-2lbs a week. That’s nothing to be beat yourself up about. Remember where you were before you began this journey and where you are now.

Everyone loses at different rates & has different experiences while losing. Don’t compare yourself to anyone else: it only messes with you bad. Focus on your journey & achievements and 50lbs is an achievement.

There is a slow losers thread. It may help you refocus and keep you motivated.

Don’t give up. You’ve already come so far.

like the above poster said, your rate of weight loss depends on a number of factors, most of which you have no control over. What you DO have control over is how closely you stick to your surgeon's plan. If you're committed to your plan and rarely, if ever, go off, you WILL lose the weight. It took me 20 months to lose all of mine (actually more, since I lost 57 lbs before surgery). But I started at well over 300 lbs.. (starting BMI is one of those factors....)

You must be feeling better physically and your clothes must be pretty loose, too. Any 50 pounds is enough for people to notice. Those are all Non scale Victories!

Just keep plugging away at it. Before you know it those pounds loss total will creep right up there.. day by day. Just keep focusing on what you are eating and how you are exercising.. the honeymoon is about a year and then you have to work harder for every additional pound. I am 14 months out and now i am losing 5 or less a month.

Slow and steady wins the race! Stick to the plan. Pick up the pace with workouts (just add a little something here and there). 50 pounds loss is 50 pounds towards better health and hopefully happiness. Your doing great. I don't know if you are ready to do it yet... but for me a great psychological boost is gathering the clothing that is now too big for me and donating them. I am determined to never go back to my larger sizes.

Great job! I bet if you were asked 7 months ago "would you like to be 50 pounds lighter" you would have answered absolutely.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
