you and i started at or about the same stats. In 2009 i was 232lbs, 5'2".... the difference is i had the band back then and i know the weight loss is slower than with GB. I did get to 143lbs, so your goal is very doable. It did take me a while. I lost 69lbs the first year and 20 the next.... but again i had the band.

This time around (sleeve) i stated at 173lbs. I lost 53lbs over the last year (sx 8/28/19).

I would say you are doing a great job and to keep doing what you are doing. I'm sure you will at some point hit a stall (we all do)... but just keep working it.... I have no doubt you will reach your goal by or before your year.

Good luck

people lose at all different rates due to several different factors (gender, age, metabolic level, activity level, starting BMI, whether or not you lost weight prior to surgery, etc) so it's kind of pointless to compare yourself. The only factors you really have control over is how closely you stick to your program, and your activity level. If you're committed to these two, you WILL lose weight, whether fast or slow. I was a slow loser from the get-go and thought I'd never even get below 200 lbs, let alone lose all of my excess weight, but I did. But to answer your question, most of us seem to lose in the 15-25 lb range the first month (and less than that after month 1), so you're right on target. Of course there are always some who lose more or less than that, but that seems to be pretty average. So you're good...
