Surgery date was December 18. Down 28lbs as of today. Have been stalled for a week. Can’t wait to see my nutritionist to make sure I’m on the right track. I feel like I should be down more by now. Is it just me?

This is called beginners of the journey panic Or commonly known as B.J.p (ok that i made up)

- Ok for you veterans here i go with my Math answer to this question - Lets look at your situation from a Math perspective

So you are down 28 pounds in a month and half

So 28 x 6 = 168 Pounds in a year! Great Job

So do not panic and give it time, all new comers to the journey do the same thing. Enjoy the ride and stay on course and Next year Feb 6 I will congratulate you on your loss of 168 pounds of Fat and how healthy and happy you look

Stalls happen about this time post-op, so it's frustrating but completely normal. Push through it by sticking with the program.

unless you're the size of one of the participants on "My 600 lb Life", your weight loss is normal. I lost 16 lbs the first month. Many of us (probably most) lost somewhere between 15-25 lbs the first month. Stalls along the way are also very normal, the first one usually occurring within the first 4-6 weeks after surgery (often the 3rd week, which is why we call it "the three week stall"). I have mixed feelings about "My 600 lb Life" because I think it gives a lot of WLS patients unrealistic expectations. Starting BMI is one of the factors that influence your rate of weight loss, and the people on that show tend to start out at MUCH higher BMI's than your average WLS patient. As long as your weight is trending down, relax. I was a "slow loser" from the get-go, and I lost all of my excess weight - over 200 lbs.

Nobody loses the exact same amount consistently for a year.. No way..

The first few months you will lost the most maybe 6 months if you have a Lot to lose but then it will slow right down even possible to go thru multiple stalls over a year.

Also a month and a half is 6 weeks and a year is 52 so it would be 28 x 8.66.

in that case, your rate of weight loss is completely normal..

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
