Hi!

I wonder if my weight loss is going with the right pace. I had surgery on 13 march, and the first time I weighted myself was on 17 march - 93,2 kg (~ 205 ib) and today (21.04) I weight 86,8 kg (~191 ib). Now, I know that I started with not such a huge obesity, but still, am I going to slow? I haven't started working out yet, so it may change a bit.

you're fine. And you're right - you're starting out at a lower BMI than a lot of us, so you're likely to lose more slowly. There are so many things that affect your rate of weight loss - age, gender, starting BMI, genetics, metabolic rate, your activity level, how closely you stick to your program, whether or not you lost a lot of weight prior to surgery, etc. The only two of those that you have much control over are your activity level and how closely you follow your program. If you're doing well with those two, then that's all you can do. I was a slow loser as well, and I ended up losing over 200 lbs. So don't worry about it. You're doing fine.

While there are average rates of loss, there really isn’t a right or wrong pace. You’ll lose at your rate.

As @catwoman7 said there are a lot of factors that influence the rate of your loss. The only concerns would be if you were losing excessively quickly for your starting weight, age, gender, etc. or extremely slowly.

I lost about 9kg in my first month & my medical team was very happy with that. What is your surgeon &/or dietician saying?
