I would like to take a moment to share how I am feeling today. First, thank you to my Higher Power for being there every day on my weight-loss journey. I began the process at 285 in November. I had surgery December, 2019, and weighed 264 morning of surgery. Today 4 months and a week later, I am 215. I have more to go to reach my goal, and perhaps to some observers I might have lost the weight quite slowly because it has taken me 4 months, but I am very grateful for my own journey. I am feeling healthier day-by-day! Congratulations on your own successes, and be gentle with and kind to yourself. Thank you, and be well.

Congrats! I cannot wait until I am to this point! Of course I look forward to looking better, but for me FEELING better matters most. I’ve been unhealthy for too long! Congrats again ❤️

As far as I am concerned there is no slow or fast, all weight loss is to be celebrated, that said, there is too much focus on scale weight, we neglect too many times the non scale successes..one being improved health and frame of mind, sounds like you have achieved both, well done, keep up the great work.

you're losing at about the same rate as I did. People lose at all different rates due to all different factors, many of which you don't have much....or any...control over (age, gender, metabolic rate...). The only factor you really have complete control over is whether or not you're following your plan. As long as the trend is downward, you're good! (and by the way - your rate of weight loss sounds pretty normal to me!)

50lbs in 4 months is above average I would say...
