Recommended Posts

I know weight loss varies with everyone but I was wondering what the average weight loss was by 6 months post op for a sleeve? Bypass can throw in their results too :) If you dont mind sharing what your results were at that milestone month.....thanks

Yes, there are a lot of variations & factors that influence your rate of loss. I’d lost all my weight by 6 months so 31kg (68lbs). I lost another almost 12kgs over about the next 11 months (got slower & slower). Wasn’t intentional. Just trying to sort out maintenance & it seemed to be where my body wanted to be.

Hiya, not at 6 months yet, but at 5 months I have lost 61lbs, results may vary I've always lost weight easily and I struggled with nausea initially and basically only ate cheese and Protein Shakes for the first 2 months so was very in Keto.

Ive heard that typically people lose between 30-40% of their excess weight by the 6 month period, anecdotally, from stalking others' posts on this, most seem to lose about 70lbs who started high 200s low 300s.

Mandatory disclaimer: we are all different and lose (or gain) weight at different rates.

with that said, and since you asked (in lbs):

235 start of 2 week pre op diet

138 at 6 months post op (-97lbs)

127 at 7 months (goal)

119 this morning at 3.5 years post op

P.S. I’m 5’2” for reference.

I weighted 304lbs surgery day (highest weight ever) and have lost 105lbs so far being 6 months and two weeks out. I’ve had several stalls one lasting an entire month. It’s going comparatively slow now with “just” 1kg per week. I’m 5’8 so my surgeon wants me to lose another 40lbs.

I'd lost 75 lbs at the six month point (not counting what I'd lost pre-surgery). But there are so many factors that affect your rate of weight loss that there's really not an "average" amount of weight lost at any given time. If you stick to your program, you'll lose - whether fast or slow.

Thank you for the responses, Im so happy to see that everyone has done so well with their weight loss. Its very encouraging. Dually noted that each person's weight loss varies and there is no real average per se, I hope I do as well as everyone else here but honestly Ill just be glad to see the scale going in the opposite direction for once ;)

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
