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..

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
