Can you lose too much weight too fast?

Had my mini gastric bypass on Nov 19th. As of today I am down 29 lbs. Is that average? Almost seems excessive. A pound a day…

I lost 34 lbs the first 30 days, 27 lbs the next 30, for a total of 61 lbs in 60 days.

It's a great sign as early weight loss - with the MGB at least - does seem to indicate a great long-term result.

Thanks! That is encouraging…

Yep. My current issue is how to stop losing. I can see my ribcage now, it's actually not where I want to be (stupid COVID, dropped 2 more lbs). I know it'll flip back to watching what I eat soon, but so far, so good.

Do you know how long your bypass is?

it seems 15-25 lbs is pretty average for the first month, but you'll always find a few folks who lose more or less than that. They're kind of outliers - but on the other hand, since you're male, it wouldn't be surprising that you've lost more than the typical range.

This! Also, MGB has a fairly dramatic early loss, whereas VSG and to some extent RNY present a more distributed WL profile. Many MGB'ers are almost at goal at 6 months.

Think he said 90 cm.? Not sure. That’s 3 ft.

Hm, maybe? I'm just curious what people get these days. :)

I had mine of the 23rd of November and I am down 29lbs. I was shocked like you, but it seems to be normal. 💛💛💛💛

I had VSG and lost 37 lbs the first month and 19 the second month, so I'd say 29 in a month is pretty darn good and not to worry.

I'm one of the slow ones! I've only lost 18 pounds since Nov 26. Ugh.
