Monthly weigh in and measurements



Recommended Posts

Time for my monthly measurements and weigh in...

Surgery April 18th. I weigh and measure myself on the 4th of every month.

As you can see this past month has been very minor improvements. I was in a stall for a couple weeks and i think i am breaking the stall.

3 month follow up was last week. Went over blood work and my Iron was just 1 point below normal. Otherwise all other Vitamin test were in the green.

I am hoping next weigh in i am at least in the 230's to 220's at least.

after the first month, a lot of us lose about 10 lbs a month, give or take----and then as you get further out, it drops to around 5 lbs a month (and after the first year, mine dropped to a pokey 2 lbs +/- until my weight loss finally stopped at 20 months out). So it may be a stretch to hope for a 19 lb drop at five months out (not that it's impossible - but not likely). Regardless, looks like you're doing pretty well so far!

My surgeon gave me a graph based on my height and surgery weight. Showing how I should drop weight through the first year (based on national averages). It has me at 20lbs for the first 3 months, then around 15 lbs until 7 months and then it hangs out around 10 lbs a month for the rest of the year.

At 3 months it has me at -64.1 lbs, at my 3 month follow up I was -77 lbs!

Everyone is different. I have really good weeks and very low weeks. But I only weigh on Mondays which was my surgery day. I like the graph just to give me an idea. I also use it as personal "challenge" to stay ahead of my graph even if just by 1 lb. Keeps me focused!

Looks like you have been doing well!! Thats Awesome..... As for myself I still have the mobility issue because I have no ACL in my knee and need a knee replacement done. I had a 5 week stall!!! That sucked big time and talk about being discouraged oh my!! That being said I did start losing again but only a few pounds here and there. I think on an average I may lose 2-3 lbs per week and about 10-12 lbs per month. I go for a weigh in tomorrow. I think I lost about 11 lbs since last month. Not the big lbs that alot of ppl seem to drop but Ill take what I get I guess. Its better than gaining LOL. Keep up the good work and I am sure you will hit your goal in no time!!!

that's pretty average. That's about what I lost, and we started out around the same weight. I don't know of too many people who've lost more than that at that juncture - a few lucky ones, and those who started out MUCH heavier than us. But otherwise, no. That's a pretty normal loss for three months out.

Yep your exactly right. I voiced my concerns on my weight loss and it not being enough but I lost 12 lbs in 1 month since my last appt. My team is happy where I am at for the amount of weight I loss and told me to stop beating myself up over it, They said the very same as you catwoman7.....Im within the average range of weight loss for 3 months post op.

Thank you for the pep talk and liveaboard15 keep up the good work. I actually wrote down my last months measurements and of course I lost them so I wrote down this months measurements and hopefully I can compare them next time. I need to do it in excel like you did lol

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      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
