5 Months Post Op Weight Loss Slowing Down



Recommended Posts

The weight loss has noticeably started to slow down in the past month. Anybody else going through this? How long do you continue to lose weight after RNY?

Any insight or personal advice is greatly appreciated. :)

yes - the first six months or so are the quickest weight loss - it slows down a lot after that. I was probably losing 5-8 lbs a month during months 6-12 (but I started out way heavier than you, so yours might be slower). Then it REALLY slowed to a crawl after the year mark.

that said, mine kept going until I was about 18-20 months out.

Your base metabolic rate depends on your weight along with other factors. As you lose weight your base metabolic rate is lower and you need fewer calories. This causes your weight loss to slow as well. Eventually when your base rate equals your daily intake you will stop losing weight.
