I had gastric bypass in 9/15. I am 5’1 and day of surgery I weighed 250. I have Hashimotos. I’m just looking to see ppl with similar stats and their weight loss. Please, I know everyone is different, looses differently etc. I just would like to see how other ppl are getting along. So far, I’ve lost about 18 pounds post op and that seems to be so little to me. I lost about 3 or 4 pounds this week (third week weigh in) and that seems so minor. Again, I know everyone is different, I’d just like some similar ppl sharing journies so I can relate! Thank uou!

There is nothing minor or only about your weight loss so far. You are three weeks out and lost 18lb that is not insignificant.

You are doing great, keep up the great work.

I lost 15 pounds the first month post-op. Sounds like you are kicking butt! Keep going!

15-25 lbs the first month seems pretty average. Granted, you will find outliers to that, but unless you start out with a REALLY high BMI (like the people on "My 600 lb Life"), that's a pretty normal loss. I lost 16 lbs the first *month*, and I started at a much higher BMI than you.

Don't know why it's not showing up, but here's a cut and paste:

Pre-Op Diet -12; M1-19; M2 -7; M3 -10; M4 -7; M5 -7; M6 -9; M7 -8; M8 -9; M9 -8

Thank you! Can I ask what your starting BMI was?

My stats are very similar to yours. I am also 5'1" and started at 250 pounds. I had the sleeve rather than the bypass. My weight loss started slowly compared to others I know who had WLS. I lost about 10 pounds the first month, then 15 the second month and then I settled into about 10 pounds per month until recently (it has slowed down now). At this point I am 18 months out from surgery and I have lost 110 pounds overall. 18 pounds in 21 days is pretty amazing and 3 or 4 pounds in one week is great! I think you're doing fine.
