Perhaps my expectations are low, but I think 11 pounds in 2 weeks is quite a lot! Plus you came back from surgery full of Fluid, so you had to get back to the starting point. I was sleeved on 2/10 and I have lost only 6 and a half pounds since my surgery weight, and that seems ok to me.

unless you're the size of someone on "My 600 lb Life", 11 lbs in two weeks is pretty normal.

Here i go again - ITS SIMPLE MATH 11 POUNDS IN TWO WEEKS= 5.5 POUNDS A WEEK

SO PER MONTH = 5.5 X 4 = 22 POUNDS A MONTH

SO PER YEAR = 22 POUNDS PER MONTH - X 12 MONTHS= 264 POUNDS THIS TIME NEXT YEAR

so YOU THINK YOU COULD LOSE 264 POUNDS WITHOUT THE SURGERY

YOU ALONG WITH MANY HAVE GOTTEN THIS RESPONSE - GET OFF THE scale AND BE HAPPY YOU ARE GETTING HEALTHY, YOUR HEAD IS MESSING WITH YOU, ITS CALLED WLS HEAD GAMES~

Congrads and welcome to the jungle we have all been there,

Unless your starting weight was on the low side, your loss rate sounds pretty normal to me. The expectation to lose massive amounts in a short time causes unnecessary anxiety among many.

I personally consider myself to have done pretty well, and I lost 12 lbs the first two weeks. Went on to lose 110 lbs and reach goal in 7 months.

If you can, try not to stress out (I know, its hard). Try to focus your energies on something less anxiety producing: exercise, hanging with friends, shopping! lol. Managing your expectations will do wonders for your sanity and make this process much more enjoyable.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the benefit of your experience! I feel like managing my expectations in most things aids my peace of mind, and this maybe more so.

Just chill out the mind games are brutal - It gets better and you are on the way to the greatest feellings you will ever have, I have seen this post a ton of times the last 8 months so you are not alone! I was not trying to be brutally cold but i wanted to make a point.

Also i crashed big time also, so i know what you are going thru I was not ready for post Op and had big issues. I did a long post months back on it if you want to read it.

My suggestion is do not weigh yourself all the time. After i crashed i went to a bi monthly weigh in. The 1st and the 16th of the month. Then average the two numbers from the previous month and multiply by 12 - This is a Journey not a Sprint. Get healthy is the key, So focus on eating right getting your Vitamins and minerals set up, start moving more and the Good things will come.

You got this we all have been there!

that's a pretty normal starting weight for a female WLS patient - and your 11 lb weight loss is probably pretty average for someone of your size. You'll be fine. I lost 16 lbs the first MONTH, and I started off at over 300 lbs - so theoretically, I should have lost a lot faster than you did the first couple of weeks. But...I didn't. I lost maybe 10 lbs the first couple of weeks (I only recorded my monthly weigh-ins on my spreadsheet, so not sure where I was two weeks out). But suffice it to say, your weight loss is pretty normal.

I am 11 days post off now and have only come down for the £5 and surgery date so don't get too discouraged. You might be in the slow losers club. I anticipate I will be due to my age and the medications that I need to take. It's a process and be patient.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

      4. BayougirlMrsS

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!
