How long is the "honemoon" phase for sleeve? Talk to me about transitioning out?



Recommended Posts

I'm 6 months post sleeve and haven't lost in 3 weeks. Diet good, carbs are low, less than 50 net per day..usually around 30. I've been fluctuating the same 3 lbs for almost a month. Some say honeymoon ends at 6 months, others say 1 year. I still have 50-60lbs to go to hit goal...and even then, I'll still be considered overweight according to BMI.

I am SCARED!

For me as a male i slammed it off at 500 calories a day so guess i had a 7 month honeymoon however female tend to be slower on the loss, We al slow down around 6 months the first half was easy second half required me to bust my ass working out

I guess it depends on how one defines “honeymoon”. This will be different for everyone. For me, I think of the honeymoon period as a the time when eating very, very little calories took very minimal effort (again how one defines “effort” will vary from person to person).

Based on my own personal definition, my honeymoon probably lasted about 15 months.

These days (1 yr, 10mnths), I have to be much more mindful of what I’m eating & burning off, cuz if I dont pay attention I’ll likely gain weight.

There is no reason to be. One can lose more weight outside of that infamous "honeymoon phase".

Are you exercising? I held same 3-5 pounds for nearly 3 weeks, wasn't until 4 week of weighing in did I finally start losing and it seems melting off again. But I am exercising about an hour at least a day - walking, hiking, yoga (I can do freaking "some" yoga) biking. Oh and I finally found some pools I can swim in.

Just wondering about the exercise component- but I say just keep on keeping and log everything at the time you eat and drink it.

you may be in a stall. Mine got more frequent and longer as I got further out. Every time, I'd think "well, this is it....my body is done", but then, the weight loss would start up again. It finally stopped when I was about 20 months out. So don't lose hope yet!

they say about a year for the honeymoon phase, but that's going to vary for people. It's when you're all gung-ho and weight loss is relatively easy. It gets a lot harder once you're a year or more out.

Bypass here but results are very similar between the 2.

My weight fell off very quickly for the first 6 months and hit maintenance at 8 months. Lost all my excess weight..
