Weight loss in the first 2 months



Recommended Posts

Good afternoon!

Quick question....about how much weight did you lose in the first 2 months post surgery?

I have an important event that I bought a dress for.

Thank you for your time!

rate of weight loss is so different between people depending on so many factors that I don't know that any of this will really help you, since you don't know if you'll be a faster or slower loser, BUT...

I lost 16 lbs in month 1 and 12 lbs in month 2. So 28 lbs altogether.

DANG GIRL!! 49 lbs in 2.5 months! That is crazy. I am down 45 lbs in 2 months and 3 weeks including pre op diet. You have got me beat!

The first two months were exceptions...it all really averages out in the end! From months 3-7, my monthly average loss was ~11lbs (lost from a high of 13lb/month to a low of 9lbs/month, depending on the month)

I get how we sometimes fixate on the speed of loss (I mean, there IS a bit of thrill in getting closer to goal, I'm not denying that), but really, for those that stay on their respective plans, we all end up at the same place eventually. Does it really matter if it takes 6 months or 2 years? Its a drop in the bucket in the grand scheme of things.

Good Luck! ❤️, sounds like you'll do great.

I'm exactly 8 weeks tomorrow. Down 32lbs since surgery + 7lbs pre-op for a total of 39lbs. Sounds like you are trying to guess how that dress will fit. I caution you to maybe have backup plans because in addition to the variable weight loss numbers, that weight loss will also look different on different people. At 5'9" and 38lbs lost, and I still wear the same size 14 pants and XL top, it just fits a lot better. Also "the girls" have deflated from a 40F to a 38DD. Hope that helps!

Good point. I am much shorter, at 5'2", and a 39 lbs weight loss was a few sizes down down in my case.

I forgot to ask: are you trying to fit into it, or stay into it?
