My bypass was September 2, I lost 12 lbs in the first two weeks, nothing more since. Kind of worried I’m not doing something right.

From what I read on the boards, it seems like a lot of people have a stall at around 3 weeks so I think that's normal (?)....but I'm sure it's frustrating!!! Just continue to keep up with your Proteins and Water, etc,

I had my surgery on August 16.
Lost 24 pounds in the first 2 weeks.

Lost 6 pounds over the next 18 days.

Lost 12 pounds in the last 12 days. Stay the course. The PA at my surgeon's office said that my body was fighting against the reduced caloric input, but that it would eventually give in. He did advise me to cut back a bit on sodium (I was living on Gatorade Zero), because it meant I was carrying more Water weight.

Hi Peeps,

I had my Gastric bypass (RnY) on Aug 17. My stats are as follows.

SW: 302 lbs

Height: 169 cm.

CW: 246 lbs.

Total lost: 56 lbs

Exercise: Walking 10km daily

However, I'm feeling I'm not losing fast enough, my dietitian thinks I should be losing about 4 lbs a week.

I'm worried that I'm going to ruin this. Any tips on how to lose faster.

Would really appreciate the help. Thank you.

I was just thinking about this thread. I had my revision to RNY due to gerd in August. Sounds like you are doing really well to me. To me, it's not race, especially if you are eating healthy and exercising, making the shift from poor habits to healthy self-caring eating habits (mentally, emotionally and physically). Generally speaking, to lose 4 lbs. a week you would have to have a calorie deficit of 2000 calories a day. Good job so far.

Well put! Took the words right out of my mouth (err, typed them?)

I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
